If you do not have a slow-cooker, here is my tips: Do not use Pressure Cooker when you Braise something, unless you do not have time. Its my honest advise, as I do not think Pressure Cooker keeps the same taste and that tenderness of your meat. If you do not have a slow-cooker, use a braising pot, or just any thick pot you have. Cook over very low heat for 30mins-45mins, partially covered. Turn off the stove, then fully cover the pot and leave to rest for 2-3 hours without opening it up or stirring it. Cook again for 15mins before serving.

REMEMBER to always partially fry your potatoes first before braising, you do not want to eat potato-powder !!!

Bon appétit!!
