I came up with this the other day. I was looking to create a simple dinner that was quick, tasty, and easy/peasy to assemble. So, I came up with pressure cooker beef and taters. The good news is that if your pressure cooker has a sauté feature (like Instant Pot), this becomes a one-pot meal. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
