Just made this tonight and was fabulous. A few changes like most cooks - omitted the sugar, added 3 stalks of celery, cut in 2 inch segments and didn't coat the meat with flour. Because I had almost double the meat, I browned the beef in divided batches, then added everything else. My 6 qt pot was pretty full so had to remove some liquid to leave the required 1/3 space at the top. ( Very important!) Also thickened mine with cornstarch. All minor changes. Very nice beef stew recipe that went from conception to table in 1 hour! Love it!
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this recipe. I made this for the first time and using pressure cooker for the first time. I had double the meat so I doubled the flour, added Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke while it was frying. I added an extra cup of water, an extra bay leaf, 2 extra potatoes 5 stalks of celery and it seemed like a ton of salt!
I really enjoyed the meal and came together easily. Next time I am going to add 1 table spoon of sugar; it was just a little sweet for my preference (not candy sweet). I cooked the meal at lunch time. I put the pressure cooker (electronic) at 165 warm setting until dinner time. All the flavors absorbed in to the food.
Great recipe. The only change I made was using beef broth instead of water.
