I’m feelin’ the love. That mushy, starry-eyed, weak at the knees kinda love. For my Instant Pot, that is.
I mean, WOWZERS. Completely blown away by this Instant Pot Beef Stew, and saying i’m officially obsessed with this magical pot is an understatement of the century. If you own one, high fives all around. If you don’t, I would highly encourage you to think about it.
I'm not going to lie, I got mine in the Fall and was quite intimidated by all the different settings for a little while, but then I took the plunge! This Instant Pot Beef Stew is perfect for a cozy Sunday night in, or even crazy busy week night. The only work required is chopping the veggies and meat. You don't even need to sear the meat first, just throw it all in and press start. You can so handle that!
If you don't own an Instant Pot (yet.. wink wink), you can definitely make this in your crockpot. I would suggest cooking on low for 6 hours or so.
Serve in Bowls with fresh thyme and toasty bread & dig in!Print
- 3 T olive oil
- 1.5–2 lbs beef chuck roast, cut into 2 inch pieces
- 1 large shallot, minced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 celery stalks, chopped
- 6 carrots, peeled, sliced diagonally in thick pieces
- 1 lb baby red potatoes, quartered
- 2 1/2 c beef broth
- 1/2 c red wine (I used cabernet)
- 1 T Worcestershire sauce
- 5 sprigs fresh thyme
- 1 tsp paprika
- Salt + pepper, to taste
- Parsley, as garnish
- Warm baguette, for serving
- Select ‘saute’ function on your instant pot. When screen reads “hot” add oil and then the beef.
- Sear the beef for 1-2 minutes, then press cancel on the instant pot.
- Add all remaining ingredients to your instant pot, toss it all around, and secure the lid. Make sure the pressure valve is set to “sealing” and select the meat/stew function for 35 minutes high pressure.
- Once the 35 minutes is up, carefully switch the valve to ‘venting’ and let all steam release before carefully opening the lid.
- Serve in bowls with fresh parsley, thyme, & toasted bread.
- Brown the meat in a large oiled skillet prior to putting it in your crockpot with all other ingredients.
- Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Enjoy!!
*You can also use a crockpot if you don’t have an instant pot. I would suggest browning the meat in a large skillet prior to putting it in your crockpot with all other ingredients. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Enjoy!!
