Recipe: Easy Instant Pot Beef Stew

Easy Instant Pot Beef Stew

There’s nothing like a warm bowl of beef stew on a cold winter evening. I don’t know if it’s the tender beef, soft potatoes, or the flavorful gravy, but it warms your body and soul inside and out and make the entire house smell incredible!

This is my family’s favorite recipe that I’ve been making for years. Ever since I picked up an instant pot a few months ago, I haven’t looked back and have been making the stew in the Instant Pot instead because it cooks the stew 3x faster and makes the meat super tender and soft.

Easy Instant Pot Beef Stew



  • 1 1/2- 2 pounds beef stew meat cubed (or chuck roast)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cups potatoes chopped
  • 1 cup carrots chopped
  • 4 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce optional
  • 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning mix optional
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 cups or 24 oz. College Inn® Beef Broth


  1. Put flour, salt, and pepper in a large ziplock bag. Place meat in bag with the flour and shake until well coated.
  2. Place the oil in the Instant Pot and turn on the sauté function. Heat for 1-2 minutes until oil is hot then remove beef from the ziplock bag, shake off excess flour and add to the Instant Pot. Brown the meat on all sides.
  3. Add the chopped onion, potatoes, carrot, celery, garlic, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, and ranch seasoning mix. Stir until everything is combined then add 3 cups beef broth.
  4. Close the lid on the Instant Pot and close the steam valve. Press the "meat/stew" button, or set the cooker to 30 minutes of high pressure. After 30 minutes of high pressure, allow the cooker to naturally cool and release pressure. Once the pressure has released, open the steam valve then carefully open the lid.
  5. Carefully ladle stew into soup bowls and serve with toasted bread.
