Delicious Beef Stew right out of Instant-Pot Electronic Pressure CookerTurn pot back on, hit “manual” button. Now set timer for 1 hour and let the ingredients turn into yummy goodness! You can cook longer than 1 hour but an hour should do it. The meat is super tender.

You can throw whatever you want in, whatever veggies you like in whatever amounts you like. Adjust the amount of meat for the amount of people you are feeding. I used 3 lbs. of beef for 5 people, there were no left overs : (

The picture to the right is the stew all done. It’s even better the next day. It was so disappointing not to have left overs.

Eat well, feel good, have fun.
