can i avoid using vinegar ? and no tomato too?

(Jane Jojo) #3

Vinegar adds a nice flavour. To an extent, vinegar can be replaced with fresh lemon juice. I haven't tried it in this recipe.

that makes sense... lime gives a sour lift !

Hi!! This looks delish! Is there a way I can make this without the pressure cooker? If so, how long does it need to be cooked for? How do I know when the meat is done?

Thank u for this recipe… Its really helpful for such beginners like me…

Without pressure cooking, it will take a long time to cook the beef or any other red meat. I have never tried that way. But I guess, it will take around an hour, to cook the meat. To check whether it’s done, cut a beef slice and test. It should have a tender texture.

Hi - I tried this recipe - unfortunately my pressure cooker does not whistle ! It has only time option. So I cooked 1lb of meat for about 15 minutes and it came out undercooked. But other than that - recipe is excellent - Suresh
