I find that Beef Stew (or any kind of stew for matter) is one of my favorite types of comfort food. From my Classic Irish Stew to my Cuban Corn Stew (Guiso De Maiz) they leave me full and satisfied.

This simple Beef Stew made in your Instant Pot Pressure Cooker is no different. Common stew ingredients pressure cooked to perfection in under 1 hour.

As with most stew recipes, this simple recipe is also very versatile. You can adjust the quantities of some of the ingredients to your liking. A little more meat and potatoes, more veggies, less broth. Whatever you prefer!

You can also substitute some of the ingredients for some sliced celery, mushrooms or even turnips. Feel free to experiment based on your personal taste preferences or what you have on hand.
