Instant Pot Vegetable Beef Stew is full of cozy flavor, nurturing ingredients, and is just what you need for a Sunday dinner. Less than 15 minutes of prep time is all you need. Toss it into the Instant Pot or Slow Cooker for ultimate ease!
Select the saute function on the Instant Pot. Once hot, coat the bottom of the pan with oil. Saute the beef until it is starting to brown, about three minutes. Toss in the onion and garlic, and cook another 3 minutes. Select cancel. Coat the beef mixture with tapioca starch and stir.
Add the frozen peas, tomatoes, carrots, potato, celery, broth, wine, vinegar, sugar, oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper.
Secure the lid. Select the meat/stew function, and cook on high pressure for 35 minutes.
Use a natural release for 15 minutes, and then release any remaining steam. Remove the lid.
Serve hot. Garnish with optional fresh herbs.
*You can also use arrowroot starch or corn starch in place of tapioca
***Red wine is optional, but a nice flavor. You can omit and add in an additional 1/2 cup of broth
****Omit the sugar for a Whole30 variation
