Instant Pot Beef Stew

Ok I have to admit, I haven't experimented as much as I'd like with my Instant Pot and I've also had a couple of disasters.  There is no doubt it takes some getting used to!  The other week I kind of blew up a whole chicken! BUT, I came across a few different beef stew recipes, chose some ingredients from here and there, and put a recipe together for me to try.  I was a bit nervous on how it would turn out and I have to admit, it was delicious and definitely a keeper for our dinner rotation! You can always cook beef stew in the crock pot (which I do have a recipe for under the Clean Eating Recipes tab) but this specific recipe is for those who have an Instant Pot!  Oh, and it makes for GREAT leftovers too which is a bonus!

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

 Directions: 
  1. Turn the Instant Pot to the saute setting and add olive oil, garlic and meat.  Brown for about 3-5 minutes. 
  2. Add the onion, potatoes, carrots, broth, tomato paste and oregano and stir to combine.
  3. Put lid on, lock in to place, and use the meat/stew button to cook. It will take approximately 35 minutes to cook.  You can let the pressure release naturally or use the quick release.
