We are weekly church go-ers and have been my entire life. Same church, same religion no matter where I’ve lived…I guess you can say it’s a pretty big part of who I am. From a young age, having a beef stew after church became a tradition that I’ve continued with my own family. We don’t have it EVERY Sunday, but it is definitely one you will most likely smell if joining my family for dinner.

If you’re wondering what an Instant Pot is….refer to this post. It’s such a lifesaver for savory meals in a fraction of the time compared to a crock pot. And in the blog post linkĀ above, you can learn how I am saving tons of money with little effort by using it every few months for this one item. šŸ™‚

Let me know how your family likes this stew! <3 <3 <3

Ingredients
  • 1 lb. stew meat*
  • 4 cups water or beef broth* (I've done both and both are delicious)
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos (natural soy sauce)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 tsp. dried roasemary
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped onion (I use frozen)
  • 6-8 whole carrots, chopped
  • 5 stalks celery, chopped*
  • 7 small yellow potatoes, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in Instant Pot over the saute setting. Brown the meat on all sides.
  2. Add in the water, Worcestershire sauce, liquid aminos, garlic, tomato paste, rosemary, and thyme. Stir to combine.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate.
  4. Close the lid on the Instant pot with the steam valve shut. Press the meat/stew setting or manually cook for 35 minutes at high pressure. Allow pressure to naturally release. But, if time won't allow, release the steam and it will still turn out well.
  5. Carefully open the lid and give the stew a good stir. Adjust salt and pepper levels if necessary.
