simple INSTANT POT LUAU STEW | Keeping It Relle

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!

This recipe for luau stew is made fast and simple in the Instant pot. Say what? What used to take hours to make can now be made in just about 45 minutes.

Juicy, tender beef chunks with vibrant green luau leaves pressure cooked in a beef broth come together in this classic Hawaiian dish. Growing up in Hawai’i meant always having this yummy meal at family gatherings.
