Pressure Cooker Classic Beef Stew

I grew up in a home where my Mother and my Grandmothers all cooked with Pressure Cookers. They would use them in the summer for canning and in the other times to cook very delicious dishes in a short time frame. It was a natural process that I would use my Pressure Cooker in our meal preparations for my family. I also have a large pressure cooker that I use to preserve garden vegetables. With the arrival of the Instant Pot, I began to think about my Pressure Cooker once again and decided to pull it off the top shelf and use it once again and I am so glad I did. The first recipe that I made is one of our favorites and perfect for a cold day. This Classic Beef Stew is a very satisfying dish that is ready in no time to set on the table.
