    I just put this recipe into the slow cooker. I can’t wait to try it in the morning. But, I was reading earlier comments and decided to add my 5 cents. I make braised potatoes to pressure cooker. What I do is; 1st cook the beef for 20 min then wait for it to open, 2nd; add potatoes, water, and everything else usually added to this recipe and set the pressure cooker for 3-4 minutes. Now, by the time the lid locks and unlocks it’s much longer than 3-4 minutes and the potatoes come out tasting perfect!

    Yes, I was one of them that requested more slow cooker recipes, and thank you for taking into consideration. Slow cooker is a most have when you have a big family. I cook similar meal with few skin on golden or red potatoes and mix them right in with the rest of the veggies, no need to wait for another side dish.

    • admin 01/29/2017, 9:36 pm Link Reply

      I’m so sorry, cannot help you here as I have never cooked with a pressure cooker. Can you tell me about it? Which one do you have? I’d love to get more info on it.:)

        I have a instant pot pressure cooker and I love it so much, it’s the best thing to have when u have a big family or small children that u can’t always be in the kitchen for hours. Mine is the 6 quart and I got it from amazon when they had Black Friday deals. So worth it you should definitely get one, will make ur cooking a lot faster and easier. I make ur beef borsch in there which takes 20 mins for the beef to cook then I add the rest of ingredients except for the herbs and cooks for 8mins. And it’s done. And I love the setting that u can keep the meal warm especially soups that’s my favorite option. I would like to try this recipe as a slow cooker recipe cuz it also has the slow option:)

      • admin 07/21/2017, 2:48 pm Link

        I am so excited to read your comment! I actually just ordered my first instant pot pressure!. LOVE all of your idea, seriously cannot wait to try foods in there. It sounds dreamy for a large family like mine. Any other favorite you make in it?
        Thanks for trying our recipes, we’re so honored! <3

      • Tatyana S. 07/22/2017, 10:43 am Link

        That’s awesome, I think you will love the instant pot just at first it might take some time to get used to it and to figure out how long to cook food in there but I go by the book and what I need to cook I use those settings and then I just use my recipes:)
        I’m going to try out some slow cook recipes and see how they turnout:) but the most I use it for is for meats like beef, chicken wings, ribs.., always cook my rice, buckwheat, and plov in there. On of my favorite meal to cook in there is beef braised potatoes which turnout so yummy. And of course soups. Also steaming vegetables love that option because my hubby loves veggies.

        Hope you will love the pressure cooker and I’m looking forward when you will put new recipes for the pressure cooker?☺️

    Hi Valyxa ,
    Looks really good?
    When using Italian dressing, what kind did you use.
    I have the Olive Garden one , will that work?
    Also when putting 1 1/2 cups of the dressing, is it just right with the seasoning ?
    It’s not too salty?
    Thank you for all your great recipes,
    May God Bless you and your family!!!

    • admin 01/26/2017, 4:01 pm Link Reply

      Olive Garden dressing is superb with it, Lucy. Nope, you don’t need anything else and it tastes just right☺.
      Thank you for visiting our online home??..
