Hey, busy bees! Today, I’m sharing a game-changer! My go-to Instant Pot Beef Stew Recipe. This hearty dish, offers the warmth and comfort of a slow-cooked stew in a fraction of the time. 🥣✨

Here are some tips busy bees, allow the stew to undergo a natural pressure release, allowing the flavors to fuse perfectly. Before serving, taste the stew and make any necessary seasoning adjustments. A touch of fresh herbs, vinegar, or Worcestershire sauce can improve the overall taste! 🍲

Then, cut off extra fat from the meat to avoid greasiness. Brown the beef for a tasty crust, then sauté onions and garlic for a sweeter flavor. Adding a bit of broth or wine after browning boosts the stew’s taste. 👩‍🍳

The stew really warms you up, with tender beef and tasty veggies in a savory broth. It’s perfection in a bowl, especially in cold weather. I prefer eating it with crusty bread, mashed potatoes, or even a simple side salad. 🥰
