Pressure Cooker Braised Beef Shanks
It is technically spring now and I am definitely ready for spring vegetables and grilled meat. However, today happened to be cold, wet, and un-spring-like, which is actually par for the course in Chicago. So, even though spring food has been on my mind lately, today felt like it required a comforting stew or meltingly tender piece of braised meat. But being a weeknight, there's not really time for the slow cooking of a proper braise. That's where the magic of the pressure cooker comes in.
