Step 1

Put beef and flour in a zip top bag and shake to coat. Brown meat in a little oil on all sides. Work in small batches, don't crowd the pan.

Place all of the ingredients (except peas, salt & pepper) into the pressure cooker. Stir together. Lock the lid in place and set to HIGH (15 P) for 20 minutes. Let the pressure drop naturally, about 10 to 12 minutes.

The beef should be fork tender. If it is not, cook for an additional 5 minutes, again letting the pressure drop naturally.

Stir in the peas and season with salt & pepper. Let simmer on warm for about 5 minutes to heat through before serving. You can make this recipe in advance and it will taste even better the next day.
