Quicker Shredded Beef Tacos

3-4 lbs. beef stew meat
1 tsp. onion powder*
1 tsp. garlic salt*
1 tsp. instant beef bouillon*
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
2-3 cups of water
2-3 cups shredded lettuce
1 chopped tomato
chopped onion
chopped avocado
sour cream
shredded cheese*
1 pkg. taco shells*

Toss stew meat in pressure cooker. Mine is usually frozen. Add 2-3 cups of water. (Because my pressure cooker is nearly 30 years old, I think it leaks a lot. So I need 3 full cups of water to keep from running out. Add onion powder, garlic salt, pepper, boullion & water. When rocker begins rocking, cook 20-30 minutes. (Longer if your meat is frozen.)

While meat is cooking, chop, shred, and slice your other ingredients. Heat taco shells and serve with toppings. Of course you can always make ground beef tacos, but my family would be very unhappy. If you buy the stew meat in 3-4 lb. packages, it is every bit as inexpensive as ground beef, but so much better. And sometimes cheaper too.
