Before you start
Using a pressure cooker will reduce the cooking time from 1 h 15 min to 25 min.
- Prepare the vegetables: peel the carrots and potatoes, then cut them into 2 cm pieces. Finely chop the onion and garlic. Leave the meat whole.
- Heat the oil in a pressure cooker or in a thick-base roasting pan over medium heat. Brown the meat thoroughly on all sides until golden, about 8 min total. Season the meat with salt and pepper, then take it out of the pan and set aside.
- Add the onion and garlic to the pressure cooker or pan and sauté 3-4 min until the onion is translucent. Add the vegetables and cook 2-3 min, then stir in the herbes de Provence. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour in water to a depth of about 1 cm and put the meat back into the pan.
- If you are using a pressure cooker, cover and close, and bring to high pressure (*Follow the manufacturer's directions to determine when high pressure has been reached). Cook 20-25 min. If you are not using a pressure cooker, cover the pan, lower the heat, and simmer for about 1 h 15 min.
- Serve the meat and vegetables with the cooking juices.
This stew can be made a few days ahead then reheated over moderate heat before serving.
