Servings: 4 servings
- 2 pounds Chuck Roast or Stew Meat cut into large chunks
- 1 large Yellow/Brown Onion roughly chopped
- 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 4 cloves Fresh Garlic minced
- 3 cups Fresh Water
- 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
- 1/2 large Apple grated or 1/4 cup apple sauce
- 2 Tablespoons Clover Honey optional
- 2 teaspoons Sea Salt
- 1 cup Cremini Mushrooms assorted
- 2 large Potatoes cut in quarters
- 5 large Carrots cut into 2 inch pieces
- 1/2 box Curry Blocks (mix em up)
Select Sauté or Browning on your Pressure Cooker and allow to fully heat. Add oil to the Pressure Cooker cooking pot and add in the Onions and Beef Chunks.
Give them a quick stir, just to coat the Meat and Onions with the Oil and then turn off Pressure Cooker. Add water, Worcestershire Sauce, garlic, salt, apple and honey.
Lock lid and close Pressure Valve. Cook at High Pressure for 25 minutes. When Beep sounds, turn off Pressure Cooker and allow a 10 minute Natural Pressure Release.
Remove lid and drop in the curry blocks. Mix until melted. Add potatoes, carrots, mushrooms and mix through.
If you want to add Rice to make this a One Pot, Pot in Pot Meal, add a Trivet and a Pan of Rice/Water. See, my Pressure Cooker Pot in Pot Perfectly Cooked White Rice recipe for measurements.
Lock lid and close Pressure Valve. Cook at High Pressure for 4 minutes. When Beep sounds, allow a 10 minute Natural Pressure Release.
If you are in a hurry, skip the browning step. It is not necessary, just ups the depth of flavor a bit.
The "Hot" curry mix gives a deeper, fuller flavor, but not a spicy, heat.
You can use whatever vegetables you like. If you use pumpkin and/or sweet potato in place of white potatoes, then omit the honey.
Ginger is good for another taste.
A piece of chocolate adds a richer taste.
Mix it up anyway you like and try it various ways.
Curry is good served over Japanese short rice. Jasmine rice, spaghetti, pasta, udon noodles and even toast.
