I’ve been obsessed with my Instant Pot lately, I love how it speeds up the cook time or dishes that usually take all day! Example: a frozen chicken breast is cooked in 20 minutes! It’s awesome. I bought my Instant Pot on Amazon on Prime Day, to be honest, I never wanted one. I did it because I knew that you guys may appreciate a few Instant Pot recipes since they’re huge! I never thought I would fall in love with this appliance, but here we are…

Instant Pot Meal Prep

So with all that said, I wanted to do an Instant Pot Beef Stew recipe for all you Instant Potters. What I did as take the Crockpot Beef Stew recipe that I grew up on and altered it a tiny bit.

Related: Red Wine Beef Stew (this one is so darn good). 

The results? A no-fuss beef stew recipe that tastes like it took hours to create. You get the slow roasted, meat falling apart, that you do from eight hours in the slow cooker in an hour with the Instant Pot.

Salt meat

TBK’s Pro Tip: Salt the stew cubes, and let them sit for 20-30 minutes. Then pat dry. This allows you to sear the meat easily.

I wanted to make this recipe gluten-free, so I switched all-purpose flour with tapioca flour. If gluten-free doesn’t matter to you, feel free to use regular old flour.

  1. This makes me want to get an Insta pot. I’ve seen it all over the internet, but I haven’t taken the plunge yet, but will take another look it at now 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    This sounds DELICIOUS, I want to definitely try making this. Looks like I need to add some spices to my cupboard. Thanks for all the cooking blogs, love this post!

  3. One “package” of stew meat does not tell me anything about quantity.  One pound?  Two? Three?  I’m going to make this; however I’ll be guessing 

  4. Why soup button and not stew button?

  5. I made this today and it was delicious! And so easy to made with minimal “hands on” time. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
