Rainy_Day_Woman I hope you don't mind that I took the liberty to post this on the recipe board, this looks too delicious to get lost in the threads!
I have been making Taiwanese Beef Noodle soup a bit too much lately. I tried it last week in the instant pot and it is so much better than I have ever made it!
In case anyone is interested:
1 lbs beef stew cubes One onion sliced 4 - 5 cups beef broth (i used 5 cups water and two boullion cubes) 3 dried red chili's 3 or 4 pods star anise 2 cloves garlic Bit of ginger dried or whole. 1/4 soy sauce 3 tbs tomato paste Carrots, Vegetables (whatever you have. I usually do zucchini, carrots and peppers) and bok choy or kale Udon noodles
I brown the meat and sautee onions, add some chopped carrots. Add in broth, soy sauce, tomato paste and garlic and ginger. I add the chili and the anise in a fillable tea bag so I can fish it out.I pressure cook on manual for 18 minutes. Add in vegetables and bok choy and do 1 minute hp. Quick release and stir in udon noodles to warm. Serve in large bowl with broth.
When I lived in Taiwan I used to eat this three times a week. It was so delicious. This recipe has never been as good as it was but this is as good as it gets!
