Stew in a quick cooker

Menestra en Olla rápida

We already know that time sometimes makes us eat the first thing we catch, but it is a mistake. You will have this stew ready in half an hour at most.

A quick, healthy recipe that will surely surprise you because it has everything.

Time: 30 minutes

Difficulty: Low



2 leeks

2 cloves of garlic

1kg frozen stew

150g ham slices

Olive oil


1 1/2 glass of vegetable broth


  1. We cover the bottom of our Presto pot with olive oil, put it on the fire and heat it up.
  2. Add the chopped leek and the finely chopped garlic cloves. We sauté until softened.
  3. Add the stew, season with salt and pepper and fry for a few minutes.
  4. We add the vegetable broth, we close the pot and once the weight rises we leave it for 4 minutes.
  5. We remove it from the heat, we wait for the steam to come out of the pot and once the weight drops, we open it.
  6. We keep on heat until the broth reduces.
  7. We add the pinches of ham, sauté and serve.


To give a special touch to our stew, something as simple as frying a slice of hard bread, crushing it in a mortar and adding it to the vegetable broth. This will make the resulting sauce more sticky.
