This is not your typical Instant Pot® stew. It has no potatoes, but it does have tons of flavor. Serve with lots of crusty bread and enjoy!

  • Pour wine into the pot and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off the bottom with a wooden spoon to deglaze. Add carrots, celery, and tomatoes; stir well. Add 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, thyme, bay leaf, salt, and pepper.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select Meat/Stew option or high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 35 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Mix 1/3 cup broth with cornstarch to make the slurry.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Select Saute option and bring mixture to a boil. Slowly add in the slurry. Let simmer until stew thickens slightly, 3 to 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Use any extra-lean cut of beef you like.

Very good. Added a cubed potato and used beef instead of chicken broth. The slurry is an excellent add as the final ends up more like stew and less like soup. I am one of those doesn't care for reviews where changes are made. So forgive my indulgence. I will keep this recipe in the rotation. Read More
