  • 28 oz cubed steak, about 8 pieces
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup water or beef broth, I used beef broth
  • 1 small red bell pepper, sliced 1/4-inch thin strips
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced into 1/4-inch thin strips
  • 1/2 cup green pitted olives plus 2 tablespoons of brine


  • Season beef with garlic salt, and black pepper.
  • Place the meat into the pressure cooker, top with onions and peppers, pour tomato sauce, liquid of choice (water or broth), and olives along with some of the brine (liquid from the jar) over everything.
  • Cover and cook high pressure 25 minutes.
  • Natural release for 10 minutes and then manual release if desired (or you can do natural release completely) and serve


This can be adapted to the slow cooker by setting heat to high and cooking 4-6 hours.
