by 💋❤️Diana ❤️💋


  • 1 Pounds Beef stew meat
  • 1 ¼ Tablespoons Adobo all purpose seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion powder
  • ¼ Teaspoons Dry oregano powder
  • ½ Tablespoons Sason accent
  • ½ Tablespoons Sason Goya
  • 1 Tablespoon Sofrito
  • ¼ Cups Mojo criollo
  • Olive and caper juice
  • Tomato sauce
  • 2 Large potatoes
  • Carrots(optional )
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Step 2

    Season your beef with all the spices including the mojo. Add the sofrito. I make my own, but by all means you can also buy it already made for you at your local Spanish supermarket.

    Step 3

    Take your pressure cooker and put it on your stovetop over high heat. Add some oil about a tbsp. worth and add 1/4 tsp of sugar(yes sugar) to the hot oil until it caramelizes.

    Step 4

    As soon as the sugar is browning hurry up and add your seasoned beef.

    Step 5

    We are going to braise the beef until it has browned. No need to add water. The beef is cooking in its own juices for now.

    Step 6

    Ok all the beef juices have dried up ,now it's time to add about 2 cups of water to the pot until the meat is just barely submerged.

    Step 7

    Like this.

    Step 8

    I put the cover on my pressure cooker and brought it up to speed.

    Step 9

    As you can see the pivot is blowing away. I turned down the heat to keep it at a certain speed. This will cook for 20 minutes.

    Step 10

    While my beef is cooking I chop my potatoes. No carrots here ,my family dislikes it. If you like them though, now is the time to cut them up in preparation of the next step.

    Step 11

    After 20 min. I opened up my pressure cooker and checked my meat. Ahh, success. Now add the potatoes and add 1/2 cup water. close the lid of the cooker & cook for another 5-8 minutes on high speed.

    Step 12

    This is what I will use to thicken my beef stew.

    Step 13

    After 5 minutes the potatoes are done .

    Step 14

    Add about 3 tablespoons of tomato sauce to your beef stew. Add more if u want.

    Step 15

    And 1/2 tsp of the olive juice to your beef stew.( my secret ingredient )

    Step 16

    Add it I say, you will not regret it.

    Step 17

    Let the liquid cook down a little and thicken up as well. Turn off the heat and your all ready to eat my husbands favorite meal.

    Step 18

    Serve with some white rice,a side of green beans and your good to go. Enjoy!!
