Beef Shanks with Tomatoes, Squash, and Zucchini
|Food Mall: Beef Shank|
2 14.5 ounce cans of diced tomatoes
1 sweet yellow onion
8 ounces of mushrooms
2-3 yellow squash
Extra virgin olive oil
Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil to pressure cooker over medium heat. Season all sides of beef shanks with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper to taste. Arrange shanks in pot and brown first side 4 minutes. Turn shanks and brown second side 4 minutes. Remove from pot to a plate. Chop onion into bite-sized pieces. Add to pot and cook several minutes until soft, scraping up brown bits from the bottom of the pot. Return shanks to pressure cooker. Add diced tomatoes on top and 1/4 cup of water. Lock top on pressure cooker. Increase heat to high. After achieving high pressure, reduce heat to the lowest level consistent with maintaining high pressure. Cook under high pressure for 20 minutes. Turn off heat, bring pressure down quickly with the fast-release method, and remove top. Chop mushrooms, squash, and zucchini into bite-sized pieces. Add to pressure cooker with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper to taste. I like a nice dusting of each. Lock top on pressure cooker. Increase heat to high. After achieving high pressure, reduce heat to the lowest level consistent with maintaining high pressure. Cook under high pressure for 3-5 minutes. Turn off heat, allow pressure to come down naturally, and remove top. Use a slotted spoon or ladle to transfer beef shanks and vegetables to plates.
