Pressure Cooker Peppercorn Beef | Healthy Recipe

It's January as I type this, and one of the most exciting foodie gifts I got for Christmas this year was my pressure cooker. This had been on my wanted list for a while as pressure cookers simulate the effects of long braising within a shorter time. As I am obsessed with slow cooker recipes, it made sense to try out the opposite!

It took a little while to get used to, but once I had figured out how to use it, I was on a roll. This is one of the first recipes that I created for the new pressure cooker, so wanted to share it with you. 

You can experiment with this recipe and add in extra veggies or flavours. I served mine with creamy garlic mash and roasted veggies.
