Photo of ingredients.
Season with 1 table spoon of salt, worcestershire sauce, tarragon, thyme, cumin and 1 tea spoon of black pepper. Combine and reserve.
Divide onion and chop one half fine and one half medium size.
Canned beans should contain only beans, water and salt. Some have sugar also, so try to avoid those.
Close pot and let it sit at high heat until steam start to come off, then change heat to medium and let cook for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, the meat should be cooked. Open pan (assuming you know how to use a pressure cooker).
Add also the carrots. Add salt to taste. You would probably add 1 to 2 tea spoons of salt so you get all vegetables properly salted.
Remove from heat, open the cooker and this is how it would look like. Meat is melting and vegetables cooked to perfection :-)
