Instant Pot Stew

Hi Foxy Friends! I'm so excited to participate in a recipe blog hop today. So if you're coming from Jamie's blog, thank you for hopping on over! Our them is Soup/Stew/Chili recipes, as soon as I heard this, I knew I wanted to try to make my favorite stew recipe Instant Pot friendly. I hope after you're done reading all about my recipe you'll hop on over to Dani's blog to see what yummy thing she created.

I decided for those that are a very visual learner, I would film the recipe for you. If you are more of a reader, skip the video and go to the written out directions. Thanks for stopping by!

Ingredients You'll Need:

2-3 pounds of beef chuck
4-5 small Potatoes (I like using Yukon, but red ones would work too)
2 carrots (you can use more, but I don't particularly like car rots)
1 Onion
1 tablespoon Tomato Paste
3 Garlic cloves
1 tablespoon Flour
1/2 - 3/4 cup of Red Wine
1 cup Chicken or Beef Stock
2 Bay Leaves
1 teaspoon Thyme
Cooking Oil
Corn Starch

What To Do:

Step 1 - Brown Meat

Set Instant Pot to Saute, once hot add a small amount of oil to IP and add meat to brown. When browning don't try to turn too early, if you try to turn and it sticks, it's not ready, wait a bit and it won't stick once properly browned. I had to do mine in two batches. Put in bowl off to the side when done.

Step 2 - Add a little more oil and add diced onions. Let brown before moving on.

Step 3 - Add tomato paste and garlic, cook for 30 seconds or so, then the flour and stir.

Step 4 - Add red wine and scrap up any brown bits.

Step 5 - Add in chicken or beef stock, thyme and bay leaves.

Step 6 - Add meat back in to the pot and pour potatoes and carrots in and stir to combine as best as you can.

Step 7 - Set Instant Pot to 25 minutes of manual pressure.

Once it's done, let it naturally release for 10 minutes.

Step 8 - Release the pressure valve and open Instant Pot. Turn off Instant Pot and turn on the Saute function. Make a corn starch slurry, add a teaspoon of corn starch with enough cold water to make it a liquid. Pour into the Instant Pot and stir. It will take a minute or two for the liquid to thicken.

Step 9 - Once the liquid has thickened a bit, add in frozen peas and stir.

Let sit for a few minutes and your stew is ready to serve!


Let me know if you try it below and what you think! I think the whole thing took a little more than an hour. Most of the work was browning the meat! Once you hit pressure cook, smooth sailing. Don't forget to go check out Dani's blog and see what she's cooking up! Let her know that I sent you over!
