Instant Pot Beef Stew

I still use my slow cooker a lot, but I sure do love my Instant Pot. I normally use it for parts of meals such as baked sweet potatoes, rice, chicken broth, etc., however Beef Stew is a complete meal that I’ve made several times now and it’s been great every time.

You’ll have to plan ahead though because it takes some prep work to chop all of the veggies + time to come to pressure + cooking time + time to release pressure. I’d give yourself at least an hour and a half for everything to come together. You won’t be disappointed!

Beef stew is such a warm, filling and comforting meal that normally takes a good amount of time to simmer, but with this Instant Pot recipe you can have the comfort without having to wait too long! I know you will love this recipe for Quick and Hearty Instant Pot Beef Stew. Enjoy friends!

  2. Just got an Instant Pot for Christmas. After the first trial, it's great, easy to use and work well. Do you have other recipes I can cook with this cooker?
  3. This looks so delicious and hearty. I like to serve my stew over steamed white rice but I’m definitely going to try the bread option. I love the comfort food, stick to your ribs kind of meals!!
