Pressure Cooker Boeuf Bourguignon

I've wanted to make beef Burgundy ever since I got one of Julia Child's cookbooks, but I wanted to find a way to fix it in a pressure cooker. My version of the popular beef stew is still rich, hearty and delicious, but without the need to watch on the stovetop or in the oven.—Crystal Jo Bruns, Iliff, Colorado

    Just browsing this recipe it appears to be missing the beef stock. Probably 1 and a 1/2 cups. Your pressure cooker won't like that much. Otherwise seems ap sound quick version.

    Didn't work at all. I got a burn food error. I ended up dumping into a casserole pot and just braised it traditionally. Of course this will mean my vegetables will be overcooked because they're already in there.
