Yes, you read that correctly! I am about to teach you how to make PURPLE STEW using your Versonel Pressure cooker (buy one HERE).
Purple, you ask? Yes, purple. Purple veggies are like the superhero cousins of their normal, bland versions. Since they are so dark and rich with color, they are loaded with nutrients and anti-oxidants. And, they tend to be a bit sweeter than their original versions. All in all, I think I will have you addicted to purple veggies by the end of this blog!
In addition to being healthy, this will be the best tasting beef stew you have ever had. The veggies were perfect. The meat was like butter – it just fell apart in my mouth. I ended up eating half of it in one sitting, it was so amazing!
What you need:
Purple Carrots – 3 medium carrots, diced into half inch pieces
Purple Potatoes – 3 medium/small potatoes, diced into half inch pieces
Turnips – 3 or 4 baby turnips, diced into half inch pieces
1 small sweet onion – chopped AND leave some larger pieces per taste
1 small roast – i used an eye round roast, just over 1lb, diced into half in pieces
1 cup of broth, 1/2 cup of water
What you do:
Combine your chopped veggies – so pretty!
Plug in your pressure cooker, and push the keep warm button. This will allow you to get a good sear on your meat before adding everything else in. YES you can use your pressure cooker to cook the mean first! 🙂
So, throw in some oil, and sear your meat!
Once you get it as dark as you want, toss in your veggies, broth and water.
Close your cooker, push the Stew button,and walk away.
40 minutes later, your cooker will beep. Carefully release the steam, open your cooker and Voila! Purple Stew to feed 4. Enjoy!
