Things To Grab

  • Pressure cooker

    Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
    Tough beef cuts, such as stew meat, become fork-tender when they cook in a pressure cooker or for longer periods of time in a slow cooker.

  2. Add broth, tomatoes, onion and fajita seasoning. Stir to combine.

  3. Pressure-Cook on high for 35 minutes. Let the pressure drop naturally and carefully remove the lid.

  4. Add bell peppers to the pressure cooker and return stew to boiling. Use the sauté/browning setting, if available. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until the peppers are tender and the stew thickens slightly, stirring occasionally.

  5. Serve stew topped with cilantro, tortilla chips and smoked paprika, if desired.
