Instant Pot Beef Stew - A Bountiful Love

Instant Pot Beef Stew

 I used to be intimidated with my Instant Pot. I've always been scared of using a pressure cooker because growing up, my family used it a lot and I was terrified of the whistling sound it makes. So it took me a while to get one. A lot of research was done, meaning there was a lot of blog reading, review reading, and recipe looking. First, I needed to know how easy it is to use it, what brands have great reviews, and all the recipes I can actually make (if it is worth the investment. I am very happy to say that I am very pleased and own two Instant Pot.

 Why two? I added a second Instant Pot that has a yogurt function. I am on a GAPS diet and one of the things that are required to heal our gut is to consume 24-hr ferment yogurt. Since the GAPS diet requires a lot of food prepping, fermenting food, and cooking...I chose to keep my yogurt-making simple and easy. Instant Pot had saved me so much time (and sanity), and money too! It is very easy to stop by at a Fastfood chain for those busy nights but with instant pot, you know that you can make meals in a jiffy. I am also sharing Instant Pot recipes at the bottom so don't forget to check it out.


2 lbs beef stew
3 tbsp olive oil
1 medium-size onion
4 large cloves of garlic, minced
1 large red bell pepper, diced/chopped
2-3 large potatoes, diced or chopped according to your desired size
2 large carrots, diced
3 sticks of celery, chopped
2 1/2 cups beef broth
1 6oz tomato paste
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tbsp Dijon mustard


Press your IP's saute function, add 2 tbsp of olive oil, and brown the beef stew. You can absolutely brown them in batches. After browning the beef, set it aside.

Do not rinse your pot! While still on saute function, add the onions, celery, potato, and carrots. When the onions are translucent add the minced garlic. 

Don't forget to scrape the bottom of the pot to get those bits of beef. Add in the seasonings, mix for a couple of minutes and pour the broth in. Add the beef stew meat and the rest of the ingredients. Cook in high pressure for 35 minutes or use the stew function.

Dinner served and happy bellies! I love serving this stew over steamed rice but you can serve with farro or any type of crusty bread. I served this delicious and easy Instant Pot Beef Stew with cornbread!
