Before you start

Using a pressure cooker will reduce the cooking time from 1 h 15 min to 25 min.


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
