Instructions
  1. Add first three ingredients to Instant Pot, secure lid and put valve into secure pressure setting.
  2. Select Manual and adjust to high pressure. Adjust cooking time for 45 minutes - 45 minutes provides extremely tender meat.
  3. After the cycle is complete allow to rest for 10-minutes before quick releasing pressure manually with valve.
  4. Remove lid and stir. Add vegetables, ensuring you stay below the maximum fill line. Put the lid back on and secure the valve to pressure.
  5. Select manual again, and set time between 5 and 15 minutes. Selecting 15-minutes results in really tender vegetables, adjust to your liking.
  6. Allow to sit after cycle is complete for 10-minutes and release pressure. Serve and enjoy!
  7. Note: Any vegetables can be used in this stew, these were the vegetables available at the time of creating the recipe. If you prefer other vegetables in your stew, simply change them!

    Easy and delicious! I subbed half of the water for beef broth for some extra flavor.

    Veggies we used were bag of frozen sweet corn, celery, carrots, radishes, potatoes and green beans.

    This will be a great winter meal!

    This was my first recipe with my Instant Pot! I added more veggies and my husband loved this stew. The consistency was amazing and the beef just fell apart! Will make again!

    My first recipe in the instant pot. The beef was fall-apart tender and the veggies were perfect in 15 min! Delicious! Only thing…. it was more of a soup than a stew, but still amazing.

    This was a great first recipe for me and the Instant Pot. The beef was incredibly tender, but I think the veggies were a bit overcooked at 10 mins. The time started by the recipe doesn’t include two warm-up (one for the beef, a second when you add the veggies) cycles, which together add about 20mins to the total time.

    This was my first recipe using instant pot as well. Beef was cooked perfectly, and 12 minutes on the veggies was plenty (I would do less next time). Flavor was OK; might use a different flavor packet next time, use a tiny bit less water or sub some beef broth for water as someone else mentioned or add some red wine.

    I was concerned that it might not all fit below the max fill line for my 6 qt. instant pot, so i cut thr recipe in half. This amount was good for 2 or 3 people. I am wondering if those that tried this put the full recipe in a6 or 8 qt. Pot?

    I have the 8qt pot and used the full recipe. It was just above the 1/2 mark on the pot. Great first recipe!
