Authentic and delicious Cantonese braised beef with radish cooked in instant pot. This comforting heritage dish is one of the signature Chinese dish that you don’t want to miss out!

This braised beef recipe is a typical Cantonese dish that you must order when you dine in a Chinese Restaurant. It is so popular and delicious that I list it under my “can’t live without food list” and I’m sure those who had tried it before would agree with me!

The traditional braised beef with radish is slowly cook in a pot fills with sauce until the beef is tender, soft and the radish is cooked and absorbed all the juice from the sauce and spices. No word could describe the luxurious taste on this comfort bowl that you can enjoy anytime of the year.


Today, I’m sharing my shortcut version of braised beef with radish by using a pressure cooker. A quick, yet delicious meal that is ready to serve under an hour.


Good thing I like about pressure cooker is it do the job for you so you get your meal serve on time while stepping away from the kitchen. Dealing with 2 young children under 4 is my day to day challenge. Meal preparation without any interruption is impossible. So having one of this champion cookware is not only time saving but a life saver too!


This braised beef recipe is perfect for a family of 4 to enjoy on a busy night after work. I love serving this dish with some warm steam rice or noodles.

WHAT PART OF BEEF SHOULD I USE?

Braised beef with radish is best to cook using beef brisket if you are able to find some at your local supermarket. The texture and fat content in the brisket will give you a melt-in-your-mouth end product! You need to blanch the cut beef in the boiled water for a couple of minutes to remove any impurities.


WHAT CAN I USE INSTEAD OF BRISKET?

If you don’t like the brisket texture and prefer a leaner meat, you can substitute other beef cut for this recipe. You can use boneless beef chuck, beef porterhouse or rump steak.
