Exceptionally tender beef, perfectly cooked vegetables, and a luscious, flavor-packed sauce. This Instant Pot Beef Stew is so quick and easy that it can be on your menu any night of the week.
Press the SAUTÉ key three times to select the MORE setting (on older models press the ADJUST key to toggle to the MORE setting). Wait for the the pot "HOT" indicator before adding ingredients. Add 2 tablespoons oil to the heated pot. Add half of the beef and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of the spice mixture. Sauté the beef until nicely browned. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the beef to a dish and set aside. Repeat with the remaining beef, adding additional oil if needed, and seasoning with 2 more teaspoons of the spice mixture. Reserve remaining spice mixture for later.
Press "SAUTÉ" and toggle to "LOW" and set time for 5 minutes.
