Beef Stew from Midea Cooker

I thought to give this piece of chuck roast a try after I found a recipe online. I modified to my Midea cooker's requirement. It's easy to follow and delicious.
One-pot cooking. Enjoy it with steamed rice.
Stuff you need:
2 - 3 lb boneless chuck roast. (the marble ones are tender)
1 cup flour
1/2 cup olive oil or cooking oil
1 cup onion, chopped 
1/2 cup celery, chopped 
1/2 cup carrots, diced
2 cups potatoes, cubed
2 tbsp garlic, sliced
5 cups water (just enough to cover the meat)
1 package Beef Stew Seasoning Mix
Do you have these ingredients in your refrigerator?

  1. Cut the meat into 1 inch cube. It's easier to cut when halfway defrosted.
  2. Place flour and cubed meat in a zip lock back and vigorously shake the bag to coat all pieces.
  3. Prepare a separate pan or pot to sear the meat 
  4. Add oil to medium heated pan. Add meat pieces and turn frequently until all sides are seared.
  5. Add onion, carrots, celery and garlic into the pan. Toss until onion is translucent. 
  6. Transfer everything from pan to the pressure cooker's inner pot.
  7. Fill with potatoes and water. Don't overfill and watch the maximum line. 
  8. Cover and set to SOUP for 25 minutes.
  9. Follow the standard procedure during and after cooking. 
  10. Let stand for a least 30 minutes while release pressure.
  11. Uncover and stir thoroughly. Season to taste with hot sauce or pepper.
Some recipes want you to sautée in the inner pot. But that would ruin the pot's luster. I prefer to use a separate pan, because I used so much oil and trying to cook in a small pot on my first try.
