a 35 minute beef stew

Last night I made beef stew in the Instant Pot, using the pressure cooker mode. For only needing 35 minutes to cook (~15 minutes of prep), I was surprised at how good it turned out.

I loved the convenience of having a dinner like stew in under an hour versus having to start it 4 hours before. I think next time, I will add some more vegetables. Thinking celery, green beans, and mushrooms (this version just had the standard carrots, potatoes, and onions).

I’m intrigued with the Instant Pot. I haven’t used it as much as I thought I would but, the convenience is quite nice during the week.

//No pictures because stew isn’t the most photogenic dish and I felt like eating the stew was a better use of my time than dressing it up for a picture to post on the internet. I know, what’s wrong with me?
