Excellent Beef Stew on a Weeknight? Thank Your Pressure Cooker

Coincidentally I tried a similar, though much less efficient process this week. I made a very dark beef stock over the weekend in the pressure cooker (same vegetables, used a pound of oxtail, a couple pounds of ground beef and some assorted bones, a whole bottle of red wine and water) and to finish I'm going to brown the veggies and sous vide long cooked meat and just finish them conventionally to get each component cooked to the right doneness. Probably overkill, but seemed like the best way to maximize flavor and texture.
