1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

450 grams sliced mushrooms

Melt 2 tablespoons butter on medium high heat and add beef to cook for 3 minutes each side.


The beef here is tendered by cooking it in a pressure cooker for 30 minutes.

Here is how you do it:

Take a pressure cooker.

Add beef + salt + black pepper + a tablespoon of ginger and garlic paste.

Add 4-5 glasses of water.

Close the lid and burn.

Wait for the whistle to blow.

As soon as it blows your 30 minutes countdown starts.

Right after 30 minutes turn off stove & take off the whistle.

Let the steam come out properly and when the cooker goes quiet, gently take the lid off. It's just like making love.

You will also get the 1.5 cup of beef broth this way. NOW BACK TO THE RECIPE.

When the beef is done after 3 minutes on each side take it out separately.

  1. This looks GREAT. The only thing I'm a little apprehensive about is the apple juice. Hate the taste. Otherwise, I'm trying this ASAP. FEEDBACK FREAKIN' GIVEN.

    1. well then you can only use the vinegar or more beef broth. The original ingredient is white wine any halal substitution will do

  2. Gosh, this looks devine!! But you used nestle yogurt instead of greek yogurt. Whats the difference?

    1. Dear Annie the Greek yogurt is basically the plain pasteurized yogurt that you get in nestle or other brands. The other open yogurt is not pasteurized and that is the difference.

  3. Wow mouthwatering and very tasty looking recipe. I will definitely try this at home. Have you tried Pakistani Cooking Recipes I love all Pakistani Recipes and mostly the appetizers by zarnak sidhwa recipes
