Electric Pressure Cooker Beef and Cider Stew

  • 3-4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 lbs. beef stew meat, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 2-4 Tbs. all-purpose flour
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 10-1/2 oz. can condensed French onion soup
  • 2 cups apple cider (may substitute apple juice)
  • 1 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 2-inch pieces, approx 2 cups
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened dried cranberries


Choose sauté setting; when Electric Pressure Cooker (EPC) pot is hot, add bacon and cook until crisp; remove cooked bacon with slotted spoon to paper-towel-lined plate.
Season stew meat with salt and pepper. Place flour into a shallow bowl, then toss stew meat in flour until all pieces are lightly coated. Choose sauté setting on EPC; when bacon drippings are hot, brown meat working in batches, removing each batch from EPC pot.
Return browned beef to EPC pot; add soup, cider, sweet potatoes and cranberries. Lock EPC lid into place and choose high pressure setting for 30 minutes. When timer sounds, use a full natural release to allow all pressure to remove itself from the EPC.
Unlock EPC lid;  stir in reserved, cooked bacon. Season stew to taste with salt and pepper; serve at once.
