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

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!

You guys, my daughter is OBSESSED with this recipe and eats the leftovers for BREAKFAST! πŸ˜‚ German goulash is a unique soup with chunky beef and layers of flavor. And with the Instant Pot, it’s ready in less than half the time of making it on the stove. Feel free to use precut stew beef, or cut your own roast or steaks if that will save some money.

2 pounds lean roast beef, cut into bite sized pieces
1 teaspoon salt
3 big yellow onions, chopped
2 big carrots
3 big cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons avocado oil (or olive oil), more as needed
1 1/2 tablespoons sweet Hungarian paprika
1 cup red wine
1 cup beef broth
12 oz German lager (or Pilsner)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon Beef Better than Bouillon
1 teaspoon dried caraway
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
3 dried bay leaves
zest of 1 lemon
3 sprigs fresh oregano
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
fresh chopped parsley to garnish


1️⃣ Toss the beef with the teaspoon of salt then let it sit while you prepare your other ingredients. chop the onions by hand, or use a food processor to save time. Peel and chop the carrots. You can mince the garlic yourself, or use 2 teaspoons of jarred minced garlic. There are so many flavors here it isn’t a noticeable difference.

2️⃣ Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in the Instant Pot on the Saute setting. Then add half of the beef at a time, and cook for a few minutes to acquire some nice brown bits. Pull your beef from the pot and set it aside, then add a little more oil if your beef was super lean (love mine) and there isn’t much oil left.

3️⃣ Next you’re going to dump in those onions and stir them up, scraping those brown bits off the bottom of the pot. Cook the onions for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they’re soft and starting to darken a little.

4️⃣ Sprinkle in the paprika, dump in the garlic, stir and let cook another minute. Add the wine, broth, beer, tomato paste Better than Bouillon, caraway, thyme, bay leaf, lemon zest, oregano, and red wine vinegar. Now add the chopped carrots and the browned beef chunks, then stir everything together.

5️⃣ put the lid on the Instant Pot, and set the vent to sealing. Hit the cancel button, then the meat stew button, and cook for 35 minutes.

6️⃣ Hit cancel when done cooking and let the steam natural release (but if your family is hangry you can fast release and it will still be excellent). Eat as is, or serve over cooked potatoes or noodles, topping each bowl with the fresh chopped parsley.
