Beef

Sweet & Sour Beef

So there I stood in the grocery store staring off into space without a clue as to what to get for dinner

We have all been there but this is the end of the holiday season when I have run through a gamut of cooking and recipes and the creativity was running low

You would think being a food blogger would help but when you constantly think of food, you sometimes run out of ideas

So I started to think in steps

First step is easy, slow cooker maybe.  Perhaps even the pressure cooker, now we are talking!

Next is what is on sale, and there it was, a 3 pound family pack of beef stew meat

Let’s start there

Remove any excess fat and cut any larger pieces into smaller cubes to try and keep things even for cooking and place them into a large bowl

Toss the meat with some kosher salt and ground black pepper

We are using our Instant Pot pressure cooker for this recipe which has a saute function

Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the Instant Pot and hit the saute button

Add the meat in batches and sear on all sides

Once the meat is browned remove and set aside

Next we will need 1 large onion, 6 ounces of baby bella mushrooms and 4 garlic cloves

Peel and dice the onion

Rub any dirt from the mushrooms with a paper towel and slice them

Chop the garlic

Next we will need 24 ounces of Chili sauce, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce and 2 tablespoons of Gravy Master

Add these ingredients to a bowl and whisk to combine

Pour into the Instant Pot

Mix to combine

Cover and cook on high pressure for 30 minutes

Allow the pot to release the pressure naturally

The meat should be very very tender
