Our classic comfort food recipe is easily adapted to make an Instant Pot Beef Stew.
There is nothing like a comforting, hot bowl of beef stew on a crisp fall day or a winter afternoon. But instead of having to spend all day simmering on the stove, you can use your Instant pot to make beef stew in 4 minutes! Yes! F-O-U-R Minutes!
One of my favorite things about this recipe, is you can use frozen produce! Hopefully you are following my tips on how to freeze summer produce for the fall and winter months! Doing all of the prep work beforehand, means you can dump everything into the instant pot, press the button and within minutes you’ll have a tasty beef stew meal.
Instant Pot Beef Stew is very versatile. If you don’t like peas, swap them for corn. Add a can of diced tomatoes, use russet, gold or red potatoes. This stew is very forgiving and won’t disappoint!
The instant pot I have also doubles as a slow cooker, so you could eliminate one appliance if you grab this model for your kitchen.
How to make Instant Pot Beef Stew
The instructions are very simple, just toss everything into the instant pot, mix it up and press GO! I’m serious, it’s that simple! I use left over steak or roast meat to make my beef stew, but you can sautee your raw beef using the saute function of the instant pot. Once the meat is brown, add the remaining ingredients according to the recipe.
I love using my frozen produce to make this, it means I can get a quick weeknight dinner ready in a matter of minutes.
