Mikki and I try to do small things each day to be more self-sufficient. Sometimes these things double as a hobby. We have made a small vegetable garden and setup an herb planter in the backyard. We love the feeling of cooking with stuff we grew and harvested ourselves.
Even when it is just a couple components out of a larger meal, the food always seems much better! Here we made some cooked greens, and tried out a new beef stroganoff recipe for the pressure cooker.
Beef Stroganoff Pressure Cooker Recipe
- 1 lb. beef – cut in 1” pieces
- 1 tbsp. flour 1 tbsp. oil
- 1 4-oz can mushrooms
- 1 onion – sliced
- ½ cup dairy sour cream
- 1 tbsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. pepper
- 2 tsp. dry mustard
- 3 tbsp. catsup
Brown beef and oil in bottom of pressure cooker over high heat.
Drain mushrooms into another container, and add additional water to obtain ¾ cup. Mix in flour.
Add mushrooms, water/flour mixture, and the rest of the ingredients, except the sour cream, into pressure cooker and stir over low heat.

I have made a few things now with this All American 921 21-1/2-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner, and have been really loving it so far! I hope to do a more detailed write up on it later. Although it was a little pricey, I bought this particular one because it is very large and should have enough room for anything I want to cook or can, it is very well built. It features a metal to metal seal so it will never need replacement O-rings or gaskets, which was a big selling point to me as I wanted something that would be reliable and should not need occasional replacement parts.
