How to Make Beef Stew in Your Instant Pot

Instead of making chicken wings this super bowl, I’m making a hearty beef stew loaded with vegetables.... super easy and a lot quicker in my Instant Pot. Serves 6


1 tablespoon olive oil
2 lbs beef stew meat
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons flour
6 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups low sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
1 large onion, chopped
1 lb Klondike potatoes, cut into cubes
5 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 lb green beans, trimmed & cut into bite size pieces (optional)
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
Garnish: freshly chopped parsley


Set Instant Pot on sauté and add the oil. When hot add the beef and salt and pepper, to taste. Sauté for 2-3 minutes stirring occasionally then add in the Italian seasoning and cook 1 minute longer. Add in the flour stir to prevent burning, 1-2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 more minute. Pour in the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce then add in the diced tomatoes, onion, potatoes, carrots and celery; mix well then drop in the bay leaf.

Close lid, seal vent and press pressure on high for 35 minutes. When done let the pressure to release manually for 10 minutes then do a quick release. Carefully remove the lid and then return the Instant Pot back on the sauté setting. Remove bay leaf. In a small bowl combine the cornstarch and water, stir until smooth. Pour it into the stew, stirring frequently to thicken. Serve immediately. Garnish with parsley.
