Wash beef and cut it into small pieces. Mix all ingredients to marinate. Add cut beef pieces and mix well. No need to add water. Pressure cook marinated beef till beef is cooked well. (I usually go for 3-4 whistle and then switch of the stove. Wait for the steam to go completely and then open the cooker). If stock is there when you open cooker, cook without putting the lid till beef is almost 80% dry.
