Instant Pot Beef Stew
Beef stew is a cold-weather favorite. Tender chunks of beef and vegetables are perfect for a chilly day. Often, this is cooked low and slow to bring out the flavors, but there are days when you just don’t have hours to let it simmer. Those are the days to break out your pressure cooker.
This Instant Pot Beef Stew will give you the beautiful flavors of the traditional favorite in a fraction of the time.
Once you get your Instant Pot Beef Stew ingredients added to the pot, you’ll have time to heat up a loaf of crusty bread. A bowl of Beef Stew and some thick buttered crusty bread make for the perfect cool weather meal.
