Tender chunks of beef and zesty diced tomatoes take this beef stew on a trip south of the border. A pressure cooker produces a 'simmered all day' taste in less than an hour.

  • Mix flour, paprika, salt, pepper, cumin, oregano, and garlic powder together in a mixing bowl. Toss cubed beef with flour mixture. Brown beef cubes in 3 batches in preheated cooker about 8 minutes per batch, adding an additional tablespoon of oil after each batch. As beef browns, transfer it to a dish.

  • Add minced garlic and 1 can of Hunt's® diced tomatoes to the empty pot; scrape and stir to release the browned bits from the bottom. Add beef broth and bay leaves; transfer browned beef back to the pot. Seal pressure cooker, close the vent, and set the timer to cook at pressure for 10 minutes. At the end of 10 minutes, allow pressure to naturally release.

  • Once the pressure has fully released, open lid and add the remaining can of Hunt's® diced tomatoes, crushed red pepper flakes, quartered potatoes, carrots, corn, and onion. Close the lid and vent. Cook under pressure for an additional 15 minutes.

  • At the end of 15 minutes, use quick release to vent the pressure cooker. Stir in the diced cabbage, close the lid. Let pressure cooker stand with both the lid and vent closed for 10 minutes before serving.

4.9.17 This stew has deep rich and robust layers of flavor with Mexican tastes lingering in the background and the beef almost melts in your mouth. Followed the recipe to the letter with the exception of using regular oregano instead of Mexican oregano. Do yourself a favor and bring out that electric pressure cooker or an Instant Pot or and give this recipe a try you won t be disappointed. Read More

Wonderful flavor! I used my Dutch oven instead of an electric pressure cooker and it took about the same amount of time. I didn t have a quart of beef broth so I used 14.5 oz of water and added a tsp of Kitchen Bouquet. It was so tasty and full of rich flavor. I added the cabbage after turning off the heat and let it set for approximately 20 minutes it turned out great. Definitely a new favorite. Read More

I have made this twice. I do not own a pressure cooker or instapot so I used a stock pot. The only changes I made were adding 3 stalks chopped celery and cooking time. I brought beef mixture to a boil then simmered for 2 hours simmered veggies for 45 min then added cabbage and simmered 30 min more. This was excellent and beef melts in your mouth! Read More

Great flavor with a bit of a kick this stew is hearty and filling for a chilly evening! I made it grain-free and there was plenty of flavor. The directions for a pressure cooker are spot on yielding tender meat but veggies with some structure. The family really liked it and I like that there are leftovers! This makes about a gallon so it's a great way to stretch that protein dollar! Thanks! Read More

Excellent. Just a slight bit of Mexican flair. When I started making this I didn't realize how crunched I was for time. I rushed this a LOT. I shaved probably 20 minutes off of this recipe and it still came out fantastic. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

A great stew with just a hint of Mexican flair. This was my first attempt at a stew and I love the use of the InstantPot. I used sweet potato and parsnips instead of red potatoes and added green beans. Followed the cook time directed and the meat turned out melt-in-your-mouth tender and the vegetables were perfect! Spot on cook time! Great job Baking Nana! Read More

My family loved it. The only change I made was I didn t use a pressure cooker. I made it in my big cast iron stew pot. I doubled the recipe and the leftovers were even more amazing. I also added some celery and zucchini cut in quarter rounds because we like a lot of vegetables. The seasoning was perfect. Read More

I made it in the Dutch oven, doubled the spices, and added half a chopped cauliflower head that needed using up. Good flavor. Ended up being more of a crowded soup than a stew, which suited us fine. Read More
