    This is now our favourite beef stew recipe. My family loved it because the meat is juicy and the sauce is sweet. I used Marsala Cooking Wine instead of Mirin because I didn’t have any. Also I used 3 lbs of meat for this recipe but kept the other measurments the same. Lastly we sprinkled fresh green onion on the meat. The next day we used romaine lettuce and rice paper and took that for lunches.

    Soy sauce and rice are NOT paleo. However, you can substitute coconut aminos for the soy sauce and serve over riced cauliflower instead of grain rice.

    The sauce was amazing and we will use it over and over again! There seems to have steps missing so we got confused.

    I used short ribs and the meat fell off the bone and was tender. Next time I will look for a chili garlic recipe as this time I cheated a bit with a Soy Vey BBQ sauce where I added the other suggested ingrediants except for the soy sauce.

    Great flavor! So simple to excute. I recommend coconut rice as a side (replace one cup of water with one cup of coconut milk when making the rice add salt to taste). I would put that sauce on any meat!

    It was easy to make and was delicious. I didn’t add the chili flakes since my 2 year old grandson was over. I felt that we didn’t miss the extra slice.

    Even though i used regular rack of ribs, this came out so tasty and moist. Also reheated very nicely in the microwave.

    I don’t understand why the recipe called for 60 minutes cooking time. I cook these all the time in the oven with Ah-So sauce. I always cook for 1 hour at 350*. I did feel 60 minutes was too long but I tried it anyway. Yes they were falling off the bone but too much. I coated them with the Ah-So and put them in the broiler for about ten minutes. I then served just the meat over rice. It was tasty but 60 minutes was still too long in the pressure cooker.

    Is there a step missing between step 4 & 5?
    4 says to remove the lid . . . 5 says return the meat to the sauce.
    What happens between?

    It was okay. The beef could have More flavor if cooked in the liquid other than water. Also, an hour seems like a long time for the instant pot.

    It was a little spicy for us. Tasted Great though. Will definitely try again, just with less chile sauce.

    Too sweet and overcooked at 60 minutes. Other flavors are fine but I’d reccomend half the sugars and a little less cook time unless you want shredded meat. Other flavors are about right.

    It was awesome with pork too.. I just had to cut the amount of sugar and honey, and use broth instead of water. It added so much flavor on the meat
