Ingredients
Preparation

PROGRAMMABLE PRESSURE COOKER

  1. In 8-quart programmable pressure cooker, program to SAUTÉ. Heat oil; add beef and cook until browned on all sides.
  2. Slice carrots into half moons. Dice celery. Add carrots, celery, mushrooms, barley, tomato paste, water, and seasoning to pot.
  3. Secure lid. Place steam release valve in SEALING position. Press MANUAL button, select HIGH, and set time to 25 min. This will take some time to get up to temperature before the timer starts to count down. 
  4. When the cook time has finished, let the pressure release naturally for 15 min.
  5. Using a long-handled spoon, push the steam release valve to VENTING position. Release pressure completely before opening lid.

SLOW COOKER

  1. In a large pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown beef. Transfer to a 6-quart slow cooker.
  2. Slice carrots into half moons. Dice celery. Add carrots, celery, mushrooms, barley, tomato paste, water, and seasoning to slow cooker.
  3. Cover and cook on high 4–5 hours. The liquid should be bubbling, and the beef and veggies should be tender.
