Test Kitchen Tips
This recipe was developed in an electric pressure cooker at high altitude. Cooking at an altitude of less than 3000 feet may require a slightly shorter cooking time. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions.

Use 2 tablespoons flour for a thinner sauce and 3 tablespoons flour for a thicker sauce in Step 2.

You may make this into a sandwich by placing beef and giardiniera mixture on hoagie roll and top with your favorite cheese.
