Instant Pot Beef Stew

Fall is fast approaching and I’m getting in the mood for stews and soups! This is my fast and easy instant pot beef stew recipe.

I shop at Aldi a lot and this stew is made almost entirely with Aldi ingredients:

  • 1lb Stew Meat
  • 1/4 C Chopped Onions
  • 1-2 Garlic Cloves Minced
  • Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 2 T Tomato Paste
  • 2 T Corn Starch
  • 4 C Beef Broth
  • 12 oz Mini Potatoes
  • 3 Carrots Cut up

I started with stew meat from Aldi. It was just a bit over 1lb.

Set the instant pot to sauté. Drizzle olive oil on the bottom of the pot. Dump in meat, onions and garlic into the instant pot and brown meat on all sides, not cooking meat all the way through. Add seasonings.

With a slotted spoon, remove meat from the pot, leaving the juice.

Add cornstarch

Whisk in beef broth until lumps are gone

Stir in tomato paste

Add meat, carrots, potatoes and bay leaf back into the pot and stir

Close the lid and seal the vent. Set on manual for 35 minutes. After time is up, let the pot naturally release for at least 20 minutes. Remove Bay Leaves.

I like to serve it with crusty ciabatta rolls from Aldi…Enjoy
