INSTANT POT BEEF STEW
Beef Stew is such a delicious, hearty stew, and it’s one that just about everyone loves. It normally takes so long, though! Normally, Beef Stew takes hours, either in the slow cooker or in the oven for the meat to get tender enough to enjoy.
In your Instant Pot though, it’s done in a fraction of the time! You can have an amazing stew on the table in no time, but it will taste like it’s been cooking all day!
CAN I DOUBLE THE RECIPE FOR INSTANT POT BEEF STEW?
As long as everything fits, you can! Remember that with a soup or stew, you should never fill your Instant Pot liner more than ⅔ full. This will allow the Instant Pot to come to pressure and prevent the steam valve from becoming clogged.
When you double an Instant Pot recipe, there is no need to increase the time. This is one of my favorite features! It will take a little bit more time for the Instant Pot to come to pressure, but the cooking time is the same.
WHAT SHOULD I SERVE WITH INSTANT POT BEEF STEW?
This Instant Pot Beef Stew is a well-rounded meal in and of itself, so there’s really not much you need to make to accompany it! I will say that my Southern Cornbread Muffins go beautifully with it though, and they’re easy enough to whip up while the stew is cooking!
WILL INSTANT POT BEEF STEW FREEZE WELL?
You can freeze this stew, but I recommend keeping it in the refrigerator instead, as the potatoes can take on an odd texture and color when frozen and thawed. I doubt you’ll have leftovers to freeze though – it’s so good that your family will go back for seconds!
