11:27a i made this over the weekend and it was pretty okay. just needed something fast and easy. i haven’t set up my spice cabinet yet, so everything is still in a big shopping bag right now and i couldn’t find shit.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb stew beef
~4 pepperochini peppers
1 ranch seasoning packet (kroger brand is dairy free)
3/4 cup beef consomme
2 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp cold water
heat instant pot, add olive oil
brown stew beef
deglaze pot with 1-2 tbsp vinegar from pepper jar
add ranch, stir to cover
add beef consomme
select “stew/meat” option, high pressure for 35 minutes. allow to naturally release pressure completely.
once the time is finished, start rice.
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup long grain rice
bring chicken broth to boil in covered 2qt pan
turn heat to lowest setting
add rice, stir a little
set timer for 18 minutes and walk away
instant pot should be close if not ready to open by the time the rice is done
open instant pot, whisk in cornstarch slurry
serve over rice
this had a really distinct vinegar punch, but not in a bad way? next time i think i’ll add more peppers instead of using the vinegar straight. i might also get some pearl onions to throw in. that might be pretty decent.
