Bite-sized tender Beef in a succulent gravy? Yes, please! This is so delicious and will become a family favorite! Carrots are not a traditional addition to this dish, but we both love carrots cooked with gravy, so in they went.
1 ½ lbs of beef tips, beef stew meat, sirloin, etc.
Pinch of Rosemary
3 or 4 carrots, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
1 rib celery, cut into bite-size pieces.
Olive Oil for browning
1 Medium Onion, sliced or chopped
1 – 3 tsp Garlic, chopped or minced
3 ½ cups Mushrooms, quartered
2 Mini Sweet Peppers, sliced
2 tsp Butter
3 TBSP AP Flour
1 can Beef Broth
¼ Dried Thyme
1 tsp Tomato Paste
1 TBSP Worcestershire
2 tsp Parsley
2 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Set Pressure Cooker on Sauté. Drizzle Olive Oil in bottom and let it become very hot. Brown beef on all sides in two batches. Add a quick pinch of Rosemary to each batch. Remember to add an extra drizzle of Olive Oil and let it get hot before adding second batch of meat. You’ll get too much juice if you do it all at once, and then the meat will begin to steam instead of brown. Set meat and juices aside in a medium bowl.
Add another drizzle of Olive Oil and sauté Carrots and Celery. Make sure to keep scraping the fond while cooking, as all the flavors will add to the gravy! When browned, add Onion and Garlic, sauté until soft. Remove to a medium bowl.
Add another drizzle of Olive Oil and Sauté Mushrooms and Mini Sweet Peppers for about 2 minutes. Remove to bowl with the Carrots and Celery.
Add Butter. While it’s melting, keep scraping that fond. Return meat to Cooker and add 3 TBSP AP flour. Stir until flour is well blended and coats the meat. Add 1 can Beef Broth, stirring quickly. Add Thyme, Tomato Paste, and Worcestershire, stirring until blended.
Fit on the lid of Pressure Cooker and tighten. Set on Stew Cycle.
When Timer sounds, use Quick Release Method to remove lid. Add Red Wine Vinegar, Salt and Pepper. Stir contents. Add Carrot/Celery/Mushroom bowl (including juices) on top of Meat. Lock lid on again. Set Cook time to 10 minutes on High pressure. When Timer sounds, use Quick Release Method again. Gravy should be good and thick. If not, remove all contents and cook just the gravy until thickened to your liking.
Serve with Mashed Potatoes, Noodles, Rice, Biscuits, or spoon it over Bread.
