  • 8 whole(s) Carrots - Whole
  • 8 Potatoes - Medium, cut in halves


  1. Brown beef in fat in cooker. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. Add water.
  2. Cover, set control at 10 and cook 10 minutes after control jiggles (or set at 15 and cook for 8 minutes).
  3. Cool cooker normally for 5 minutes, then place under faucet.
  4. Put cooker tray on top of meat. Add remaining ingredients on top of tray.
  5. Cover, set control at 10 and cook 8 - 10 minutes after control jiggles (or cook at 15 for 6 - 8 minutes). reduce pressure instantly.

  7. (On occasion I have used canned carrots and green beans in this recipe too, along with the potatoes. The vegetables soaked up the flavor from the meat and were absolutely, mouthwatering delicious! Adjust the cooking time accordingly.)
