Instant Pot Beef Stew

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Beef stew is so simple to make in your Instant Pot. This beef stew is so simple to make, and it takes just about 1 hour to make.
