Instant Pot Special Beef Shanks

A peasant and “poor” recipe showing how old-fashioned comfort food can be addictive too. Tender meat and fresh spring vegetables will perfectly combine with the hearty flavor of shiitake mushrooms and the spicy note of ginger and chili pepper. You can either use beef or veal (which is way more expensive though).
