this time. Boil for about 5-7 minutes on high heat until the top layer is

meat from excess fat. Add 6-8 cups of water to the beef

½ teaspoon of black pepper. Cover with lid and set the pressure cooker
on the highest level over medium-high heat.

the heat to medium and set a timer for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes,
turn off heat and let pressure cooker release the steam. Set aside with
the fresh broth.
