Overnight Steak And Ale

    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.

    1 person made this


    • 450g Diced steak
    • 3 carrots
    • 1 onion
    • 2 leeks
    • A box of mushrooms (I used closed cup chestnut mushrooms)
    • 1 cup of beef stock
    • 1 bottle of Guinness
    • 1tsp mustard
    • Half tsp Cayenne pepper


    1. Chop all the veg.
    2. Using a Knorr beef stock pot, make up a cup of beef stock and add it to the pressure cooker / slow cooker.
    3. Add mustard and Cayenne pepper
    4. Add the diced beef (you can add it frozen if using a pressure cooker).
    5. Throw in the chopped veg and then cover the lot with the bottle of Guinness.
    6. Cover the lid and slow cook for 24 hours.
    7. Serve with pastry if you wish and a selection of fresh vegetables


    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.
