Another Version of Beef Stew
I've made another round of beef stew but this time it's slightly different. I marinaded the beef with some salt, pepper and a few generous dashes of Woscestershire Sauce. In my pressure cooker, I fried the chopped onions, leeks, garlic cloves and celery in some olive oil. Coat the beef in flour and add them into the cooker. Brown the meat evenly to seal in the flavours.
In some water, I mixed in some Marmite and few dashes Woscestershire Sauce. Pour the mixture into the cooker, ensuring there's enough water to cover the meat. Cover and cook as per instructions, in my case, for about 10 mins, before I turn off the fire. Released the pressure followed by the lid and turn on the fire. Add in the rest of the ingredients. This round I added leeks, celery, carrots, potatoes, button mushrooms, oyster mushrooms and tomatoes. Pour in more water covering half of the vegetables. Let it come to a boil, taste and adjust the seasonings with salt. Put on the lid and cook under pressure for another 5 minutes. Once pressure are released, open the lid. Stir the stew and ensure the vegetables are cooked thru.
Again my boiboi refused to eat when I mentioned I'll be serving this for lunch but when I served it and asked him to try, he was game since I served it with bread. As usual he loves it and so did hubby! I guess this time the method worked better as the meat turned out melt in the mouth, plus I've used Marmite lent a lovely taste to the stew. My big pot of stew got finished up by dinner! A first indeed haha...
