Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare your onion(s). You need 1 very large or 2 medium onions diced. (this aids in making a natural gravy).
  2. Turn your electric pressure cooker on saute and add olive oil and heat up.
  3. Once heated add your onions.
  4. After 1 minute add crushed red pepper flakes, cayenne powder, garlic powder, salt & pepper to taste and continue to saute onions while preparing meat.
  5. PREPARE Beef Strips (you shouldn't have to do much unless you see some fat trim it and if any slices are very long cut in 1/2. (if using stew meat, remove fat and cut ea. piece into bite size pieces).
  7. On saute still, add Hungarian Paprika and stir all the time for 30 to 60 seconds. You don't want it to burn but you just want to release the flavor. NOW ADD BEEF RIGHT AWAY TO STOP THE PAPRIKA FROM COOKING FURTHER. Stir meat till coated with onion/paprika mixture.
  8. Turn pressure cooker to brown and brown your meat quickly. Do not flour meat just quick brown it.
  9. NOW ADD: Dried minced garlic, a little more garlic powder (optional), dried basil, dried parsley and bay leaf. You can add some more salt & pepper to taste if you wish. (You will taste this 1/2 way through).
  10. When meat is just brown (meat will have released liquid with the help of onion), Add the whole bag of mushrooms, and 1/2 to 1 cup of beef broth. You don't want to add too much liquid and water may be substituted)
  11. Close pressure cooker and cook on low pressure for 7 minutes for stir fry meat or tender meat and high pressure for stew meat. 7 minutes.
  12. Quick release and taste and make any adjustments to the flavor that are needed. Close again and high pressure on high for both types of meat for 6 minutes. (stew meat may need a few minutes more). Then quick release again. Stir, taste and the meat should be tender.
  13. Put pressure cooker on brown to get a low boil or saute if it's boiling too hard. NOW add gravy mix, little at at time and keep stirring YOU SHOULD NOT NEED ANY MORE LIQUID but if you do add another 1/2 cup to 1 cup of broth or water. Cook 5 minutes and it should be perfect. (remember as it is cooling off the mixture will get a little thicker, if too thick simply add more beef broth).
