I already cooked chicken fajitas in a pressure cooker and beef sirloin steak in a slow cooker. Now it is the time to prepare beef fajitas in an electric pressure cooker. (the short version of this recipe follows)

So, how to cook Mexican beef fajitas in the pressure cooker? This is very easy!

Instructions: Cut the beef round steak into strips, then set aside. Peel the yellow onion and thinly slice. Peel and mince garlic cloves. Core, deseed, and slice the red bell pepper. In a large bowl, combine beef strips, spices, sliced onion, and garlic. Toss well.

Heat the vegetable oil in electric pressure cooker turned to the saute mode. Add the beef mixture and saute, stirring occasionally, until beef browned. Pour in the beef broth.

Close the pressure cooker and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 15 minutes. Use the Natural Release method to bring the pot to normal. Unlock and open the lid. Stir in sliced red bell pepper. Lock the lid again and allow to stay for a further 5 minutes.
