Beef Stew Version 3.0

Beef Stew Version 3.0

This was the version of Beef Stew that made Yozora dashed to the store for a pressure cooker. The method is quite similar to my Version 2.0 with a change of some vegetables. Other than the usual onions, tomatoes, button mushrooms, carrots and potatoes, I have fennel and zucchini (green and yellow).

Beef Stew Version 3.0 - ingredients

Whilst the marinade and sauces are basically the same but this round, I fried the flour dredged beef in batches in the pressure cooker and set aside. Next, fried the chopped onions and fennel. Put in the beef and top with water plus all the necessary sauces like oyster sauce, Marmite and few dashes Woscestershire Sauce. I've also added in a can of whole tomatoes (use the spatula to smash them into smaller pieces). Cover up the cooker and cook for about 15 mins. Depressurised to open the lid to add in the vegetables. Top up with some water and cover the lid to cook for another 10 mins. Depressurise again to open the lid. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

Serve with crusty bread.
