Pressure-Cooker Beef Stew
Using a pressure cooker is a great way to slash time from dishes that typically take hours. The beef in this rich and flavorful stew is melt-in-your-mouth tender in only 30 minutes.
Equipment: Electric pressure cooker (multicooker)
Tip: No sauté mode? In Step 1, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef, salt, pepper and tomato paste. Cook, stirring, until beef is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add onion and mushrooms. Cook, stirring, until the mushrooms have lost their liquid, about 8 minutes more. Add wine and cook until reduced slightly, about 2 minutes. Transfer ingredients to the pressure cooker. Add 1 cup beef broth, turnip, carrots and thyme to the pressure cooker and proceed with recipe. After you have released the pressure, transfer the stew to a large pot and bring to a simmer. Add the broth and cornstarch mixture and cook, stirring, over medium heat until thickened, about 1 minute.
To make ahead: Refrigerate stew for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 4 months. Thaw, if necessary, and reheat before serving.
