The Instant Pot Saute Button
This recipe uses the saute button on the Instant Pot. I really love this option for browning meat and veg and it’s a super useful tool. Once you’ve sauted in the Instant Pot don’t forget to deglaze.
To deglaze is to add liquid to the cooking juices to create the gravy or sauce that you’re meal will be steamed in. It really add’s a pack of punch and flavour to a meal when you deglaze your instant pot after using the saute mode.
Instant Pot Beef Stew Ingredients
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 1 small onion, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 cups beef broth
- 1 pound baby carrots
- 6 medium potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons cold water
How To Make Beef Stew In the Instant Pot
Set the Instant Pot to saute mode and add canola oil. When the pot has heated, add stew meat and stir to brown all sides. Season with salt, pepper, and dried parsley.
After the meat has begun to brown, add the onion. Cook for two minutes more, then add the garlic.
When the meat is browned, turn off the instant pot and remove the meat.
Add one cup of beef broth and deglaze the pot by scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spatula to remove stuck-on pieces of meat and onion.
Add the remaining beef broth, carrots, potatoes, and meat to the pot and stir to combine.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot and seal. Set the Pot to the stew setting or to pressure cook for 35 minutes.
When the time is up, do a quick release and remove the lid from the Instant Pot. Add the cornstarch and water mixture and stir to combine.
Set the Instant Pot to saute mode and allow the stew to simmer for five minutes, stirring occasionally, to thicken the liquid before serving.
