Pressure Cooker Lamb and Artichoke Stew


Ive made this greek style stew many times in a regular pot. Normally It takes 3+ hours. Using a pressure cooker Its about 45 minutes from beginning to end.
I highly recommend this dish

4 Tbsp butter
2 Lbs boneless lamb stew meat cubed
3 onions diced
2 cloves garlic minced
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 cup white wine
2 14 ozcans quartered artichoke hearts in brine,drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp dried dill weed or 1/2 Tbsp fresh
4 Tbsp lemon juice

in the pressure cooker melt the butter. Add the lamb and saute until lightly browned. remove the meat and set aside
Saute the onions and garlic until soft 8 minutes or so. Return the meat to the cooker and add the tomato paste and white wine.
Put the lid on the cooker and bring up to pressure. cook under high pressure 15 minutes. place the cooker under cold water until the pressure drops and open away from your face.
Add the artichokes,dill and lemon juice.return the cooker to pressure and cook 10 more minutes. Release the pressure under cold water again.
serve over rice
