Overnight Steak And Ale Using The Pressure King Pro

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


450g Diced steak

3 carrots

1 onion

2 leeks

A box of mushrooms (I used closed cup chestnut mushrooms)

150ml of beef stock

1 bottle of Guinness

1tsp mustard

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.

Final word

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.

Alternatives to the Pressure King Pro

Bella Multi-Function Electric, 6 litre pressure and slow cooker.

Morphy Richards, 6 litre pressure cooker.

Tefal 8-in-1 multi cooker.

Pin for later

If you're looking for quick, simple and delicious meal look no further than overnight steak and ale in the Pressure King Pro!

    1. Honestly, you can’t taste it. I’m not keen on mustard either but it’s lovely in this! You could swap it, use some Worcester sauce instead maybe!

  1. This is one of my husband’s absolute favourite meals! I don’t have a slow cooker (it’s been on my list of things that I really want, for ages now-I’ll have to hint again when it’s my birthday!) but I could try it in my Le Creuset for a couple of hours! It’s making me hungry just thinking about it…!
