Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and seasoned salt together in a shallow bowl. Add beef and toss to coat.

  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Melt butter in the pot. Add beef in small batches and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer beef to a plate.

  • Add onion to the pot and saute for 4 minutes. Add garlic and tomato paste and cook until melded together, about 30 seconds. Pour in broth and wine; bring to a simmer, about 5 minutes. Scrape cooked bits from the bottom of the pot. Add browned beef, potatoes, carrots, celery, and parsnips. Add thyme and adjust seasoning, if desired.

  • Close and lock the lid. Choose Manual and high pressure; set the timer for 20 minutes. Allow 10 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 15 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Transfer meat and vegetables to a serving plate. Select Saute function and simmer liquid in the pot until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Serve alongside stewed meat and vegetables.

Cook's Note:

Use 2 sprigs fresh thyme in place of dried, if you prefer.
