  1. Prepare the pressure cooker by heating it. Put the cooker on maximum heat so it heats up instantly and you do not have to wait much.
  2. Prepare the ground beef in a bowl by marinating it with salt and black pepper. The right marination can be done by sprinkling the spices and mixing with your hands.
  3. Pour olive oil into the pot and add marinated ground beef. Make sure the oil is heated before putting in the beef. But the oil must be moderately hot as to avoid any splashing when the beef is put in.
  4. After 5 minutes of cooking, the beef will release moisture and you will have to remove the juice and keep separately. The juice will be used separately so remember to keep it in an accessible place.
  5. Cook the beef until it turns brown. When the beef starts looking brown, sufficient cooking is done and anything more will overdo it.
  6. Prepare the Chicken Stock Mixture by mixing all ingredients in a separate bowl. The mixture will be used further later on.
  7. In a pan, saute onions and garlic and add cumin seeds, oregano and chilli powder. Both the vegetables need to be sauted first so they release their juices and become slightly cooked. When adding spicing, understand that is important for them to release fragrances before you take them off the stove.
  8. Add the mixture of vegetables and spices prepared into the beef pot.
  9. Add half of the stock mixture sauce into the beef and cook as deglaze.
  10. Add the rest of the ingredients along with the reserved beef juice and half of stock mixture.
  11. Close the lid and put pressure for 10 minutes. The pressure needs to be high and the time may be increased depending on the size of your serving.
  12. Let the cooker release the pressure naturally.
  13. When pressure is released, add seasoning of salt, black pepper and apple cider. Apple cider is an optional ingredient.
  14. Take out in a bowl and do garnishing if you’re a fan of making the dish look attractive.
  15. Serve hot.
