  • 2.2 lb (1 kg) stewing beef cubes
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) beef broth
  • 12 baby potatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) water
  • 3 cups (450 g) frozen peas, thawed

  1. Preheat the pressure cooker on the Sauté function for 2 minutes. Brown half of the meat cubes at a time in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside on a plate.
