Make It
Step 1
Set the electric pressure cooker to saute; add oil and brown the meat on all sides. Meat will not be cooked through. Transfer browned meat onto a large plate.
Step 2
Place the pot back in the pressure cooker and add onions and garlic and sauté for a minute or two; add the tomato paste.
Step 3
Add the meat back into the pot along with potatoes, sweet potato, carrots, celery, bay leaf, wine and beef bouillon base broth. Stir to combine. If there is not enough liquid to cover the vegetables, add water as needed.
Step 4
Cover and seal the lid and set to 20 minutes with High Pressure on Manual mode. Allow the pressure cooker to release naturally for at least 15 minutes. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper if necessary (discard bay leaf). Serve hot with fresh parsley.
