Pressure Cooker Beef Goulash

When I was younger, my grandpa used his pressure cooker to make pork chops and Swiss steak and I remember being scared of it because it was super loud and intimidating (hence the reason I didn't own one until now). This Christmas, my older sister and her husband insisted we try the Instant Pot (as they put it - "total lifesaver"). Although I don't use it that often, I will admit that it does work wonders if you want a slow cooker meal cooked super fast. Stew beef is one cut that you have to let simmer for hours to get it tender, but in this recipe it's on the table in under a half hour (woo!). 

Note: if you don't have a pressure cooker, no worries. Simply brown the meat and onions and add them to a slow cooker along with the remaining ingredients and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours.



1. Set your pressure cooker to saute and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the beef and cook until nicely browned. Season with salt and pepper and transfer the beef (and any juices) to a bowl.


2. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the pot along with the onions. Brown them lightly and season with salt and pepper.


3. Add the tomato paste, paprika, thyme, garlic powder and crushed red pepper and stir to combine.


4. Place the beef back in, then add the beef stock, red wine and worcestershire sauce. Close the pressure cooker and set on high pressure for 25 minutes. Once the cook process is complete, release any pressure (carefully turn the knob on top to "venting").


5. Adjust seasonings as needed. Ladle the goulash into bowls and garnish with a dollop of yogurt or sour cream.

  10. Coming in at a slightly more affordable price than the P600, the Advanced Platinum Series P450 still offers fantastic quality to cannabis growers. The only difference is that this model has 450 watts rather than 600. Naturally, which unit you choose is down to the size of the crop you want to grow. You can expect 2-3x the intensity of other lights due to the high PAR output per watt. In order to flourish, crops really need the full light spectrum.
