(serves 4 people)
Ingredients –
Meat –

  • 2 – 3 lbs of venison roast/steaks
  • 1 tsp of garlic
  • 2 cups of water
  • 4 tsp of beef broth seasoning

Gravy

  • 2 cups of left over broth from pressure cooker
  • 3 tsp of worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 1 tbsp of cornstarch

Potatoes

  • 5 potatoes
  • 1/2 cup of whole milk
  • 3 tbsp of butter

1 loaf of bread of your choice

Begin by starting your pressure cooker and adding 2 tablespoons of olive oil to lightly oil the bottom. Next place your venison in the cooker and lightly brown all sides. Once lightly browned remove meat from the cooker. Pour 2 cups of water into the cooker. Using a soft scraper scrape the left over browned residue on the bottom of the cooker pot. Once that is freed up from the bottom add in 4 teaspoons of beef broth seasoning and 1 teaspoon of garlic. Wisk until contents are well mixed. Place your venison back in the pot and add in your chopped onion. Place lid on cooker and manually set to 50 minute cook time.

While the meat cooks bring a large pot of water and 1 tablespoon of salt to a boil. Add in your potatoes and cover with lid. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes until the potatoes are tender but still slightly firm. Pour out water and add the 1/2 cup of whole milk and 3 tablespoons of butter. Mash the potatoes with a masher or a electric mixer.

Now that your meat is cooked remove from cooker using tongs. Using 2 forks finely shred the meat and place to the side. With a hot pad or glove take the pot and pour out 2 cups of the left over broth and onion mixture. Using a medium sized saucepan bring the 2 cups of broth mixture to a boil. Stir in 4 teaspoons of worcestershire sauce and 2 teaspoons of garlic powder and reduce heat to a simmer. In a separate bowl mix together 1/3 cup of water with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Once well mixed pour into broth. Continue cooking until onions break up and gravy thickens. Add meat to bread and cut in half, add potatoes and pour gravy over potatoes and sandwich. Serve and enjoy!
