Ingredients

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 lbs stew beef cut into bite-sized pieces and sprinkled with salt
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 lbs potatoes peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 lb carrots cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 celery stalks cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions

  • Set the Instant Pot to Saute. Add the oil and brown the meat in 2 batches. Cook each batch for 2 or 3 minutes, turning the pieces of beef several times so all sides are browned. Set the browned meat aside.
  • Turn off the Instant Pot and add the onion to the warm pot. Let it cook for a minute, stirring a few times. Then add all the remaining ingredients to the pot, including the browned meat.
  • Close the lid, set the seal, and press the Meat/Stew button, which will set the pot to 35 minutes.
  • After the 35 minute cook time, use a natural pressure release. Wait until the silver pressure indicator drops on its own (about 30 minutes). This will allow the beef to maintain as much moisture as possible. (Note: If you're in a hurry, you can let the pressure release naturally for just 10 minutes, then release the remaining pressure by turning the vent.)
  • Serve warm.
