Stewing Beef Preparation
  • 2 lbs stewing beef cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
Stew Ingredients
  • 3-4 large carrots diced into large chunks
  • 1 medium white onion diced
  • 3 large russet potatoes cubed
  • 3 cups white mushrooms sliced
  • 3 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup red wine
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup pearl barley
  • fresh parsley to garnish
  • 4 cups beef broth
  1. Whisk together the flour, salt and pepper. Place the beef in the flour mixture and toss until the beef is coated. Shake off the excess. In the bottom of your Instant Pot, heat the oil using the saute button. Add in the beef and cook until browned.

  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients and then stir until combined. Use the soup button and cook for 30 minutes. You can either release the steam manually or let it naturally release, the choice is up to you. Stir and serve.
