Beef Stew

Hearty, filling and one of the easiest to do!


1 1/2 lbs. beef stew meat
1/2 stick butter
2 large potatoes
2 cups frozen vegetables
1/2 diced onion
3 diced sticks celery
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cups beef stock
2 bay leaves
2 diced cloves garlic
1 packet slow cooker beef stew
1 tbl brown gravy mix
3 squirts Maggi




Cut the beef stew meat into bite size pieces. Sear. Dice potatoes, onion, and celery

Whisk mixes together with beef stock.

Add all to Instant Pot and select meat/stew.

Use the Quick Release Method. When all of the steam is released carefully remove the lid and check meat and potatoes to ensure doneness. 

If needed, run on manual for 10 more minutes.  Slow or quick release.

Stock, broth, stew and chili.  Chicken and egg (which came first?) SO much more!
