  • 2 cups cooked roast beef, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 can (10 3⁄4 oz.) condensed tomato soup
  • 1 can (10 1⁄2 oz.) condensed French onion soup
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 medium russet or Idaho baking potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


  • Add the roast beef, soups, Worcestershire sauce, water, carrots, peas, and potatoes to the pressure cooker. Lock the lid into place and bring to low pressure; maintain pressure for 3 minutes. Remove from heat, quick-release the pressure, and remove the lid.
  • In a small bowl, mix the butter into the flour to make a paste. Ladle 1⁄2 cup soup broth into the bowl and whisk into the paste, then pour it into the stew.
  • Place the uncovered pressure cooker over medium-high heat and bring the stew to a boil; boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer for an additional 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
