How To Make Instant Pot Beef Stew For Beginners, This recipe is divine, the beef is tender, the potatoes are perfect and the gravy is delicious! Perfect for dinner or camping trips or while you are out in a hotel with your family. Make sure you add butter to your finished bowl! Okay, it's not necessary, I just love butter. The gravy is incredible for dipping. (See the reason for the butter?)  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. It's a GREAT wintertime meal too, but we also like it in the fall. Perfect stew weather. 


  • Cut your beef roast into bite-size pieces (I normally cut mine a little bigger)

      pour your liquid smoke over meat.

  • Add 1 tsp garlic salt and 1/2 tsp pepper and mix well. 

  • Add your flour and mix again.

  • Turn your saute on to your instant pot and let it get hot. (brown your meat) Don't worry about the bottom we will de-glaze later.

  • Once browned add your broth to your pot and start de-glazing your pan. (A metal spatula works better than a wooden spoon to do this)

  • Next, add 1 can of cream of celery potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, cream of mushroom, Salt, Pepper, garlic salt, stir

  • well and place your lid on your instant pot, make sure it is on sealing and not venting,

  • press your meat/stew button. It will set for 35 min.

  • When done, do a quick release,

  • when your pressure button goes down, open your lid and Enjoy~
