If you’re looking for something you can just throw in a pressure cooker / slow cooker, overnight steak and ale is perfect.
It’s lovely comfort food and is as easy as it gets when it comes to cooking.
I used some diced steak I found reduced from £3.70 to just £1 at my local Sainsburys, which helps to make this recipe cheap as chips.
To cook it I use the Pressure King Pro that PK bought me for Christmas.
In all honesty, if I had gone out and bought an electric pressure cooker myself, I would have looked for one cheaper in price.
However, there is no denying it is well worth the money, especially for the amount I use it and the amount of meals you can use it for.
How to make overnight steak and ale
A box of mushrooms (I used closed cup chestnut mushrooms)
A bottle of Guinness
Half tsp Cayenne pepper

Chop all the veg.
Using a Knorr beef stock pot, make up about half a jug of beef stock and add it to the pressure cooker / slow cooker.
Add mustard and Cayenne pepper
Add the diced beef (you can add it frozen if using a pressure cooker).
Throw in the chopped veg and then cover the lot with the bottle of Guinness.
Cover the lid and slow cook for 24 hours.
That is it, it really couldn’t be simpler.
By shopping thrifty, using yellow ticket diced steak this cost roughly £1 per head and should feed at least 4.
I made this whilst preparing Sunday roast so it was ready for my dinner on the Monday evening, meaning I can just get home from work and chill.
If you really wanted, you could pressure cook this in about 40 mins or so rather than slow cook it, I just wanted it ready for when I got home.
You may want to reduce times if using different appliances, but I highly recommend these electric pressure cookers.
The Pressure Pro King is a bit pricey as I mentioned earlier, but could still be worth the outlay if you are going to use it as frequently as I do.
If it is a bit out of your price range, I have found some alternatives below that are a bit more cost effective.
