  • 1.2 kg or 2.6 pounds Lean diced lamb
  • ¼ cup Plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Tin Diced tomatoes
  • 2 medium Brown onions thinly sliced
  • 3 medium White Potatoes Chopped into chunks
  • 2 medium Carrots Chopped into chunks
  • 1 cup Frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons Rosemary fresh and finely diced
  • 1 ½ cups Beef stock/broth
  • 1 teaspoon Sea salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • ¼ cup tap water


  • Set pressure cooker to the “Saute/Sear” HIGH TEMP. Wait a minute or 2 for it to heat up.
  • Add chopped meat into a ziplock bag or bowl with the ¼ cup of plain flour. Coat meat in the flour by shaking the ziplock bag or stirring with a spoon if using a bowl. (this will help to thicken the stew as it cooks)
  • Add one tablespoon of the oil to the inner pot and half of the meat and brown it off. (about 3 or 4 minutes) (Keep the lid off during this process)
  • Remove the meat onto a plate and add the second lot of meat and repeat.
  • Add all the meat back into the inner pot, along with tomatoes, onions, potatoes, carrots, tomato paste, rosemary, stock/broth and salt and pepper.
  • Secure and lock in lid in clockwise direction. Set the valve to seal.
  • Select the menu by pressing the PRESSURE COOK button
  • Select the “MEAT/POULRTY” setting and adjust the cooking time to 20 minutes.
  • Press start to commence the cooking process.
  • Once timer has gone off, release pressure valve so steam can escape.
  • Remove lid and stir the stew.
  • Wash frozen peas under hot water for a minute and shake off the water. Add peas to the stew and stir in.
  • If thickening is required: make a cornflour slurry by adding the cornflour and water in a small cup, stirring to combine. Stir the cornflour slurry into the curry and stir to thicken.
