A delicious and hearty Instant Pot(paid link) Beef Stew that is really simple to pull together with a splash of Caribbean spice to give the dish a kick!
My wife recently purchased an Instant Pot(paid link) for me and I was excited to give it a try — although I was a little hesitant at first. After testing it out on a few recipes I was completely sold on it.
I am more of an “old school” slow cooker kinda guy so I’m used to being very patient with dishes that took time to prepare. Fast forward to now and this Instant Pot(paid link) is not only easy to use but it works great!
I love a great hearty beef stew and using an Instant Pot(paid link) for the recipe makes this simple dinner idea a lot easier to make. I didn’t want to use the typical flavor profile of a southern beef stew so I added a splash of Caribbean allspice to give this dish a kick.
The allspice, ground thyme and fresh rosemary team up into an awesome combination of seasonings while the sriracha sauce gives this dish just the right amount of heat. I don’t typically cook using much salt but the salted beef stock does a great job of balancing out the flavors without many additions on my end. Of course, feel free to salt to your desired taste. 🙂
The Instant Pot(paid link) made the beef and potatoes so tender that I was amazed that it only took 30 minutes! If you own one of these cool machines give my Instant Pot(paid link) Beef Stew a try and I can place a bet that the family will thoroughly enjoy this dinner option.

Add remaining ingredients (except the water and corn starch). Change the setting on the Instant Pot(paid link) to the “Stew/Meat” mode. When starting the cooking process in the Instant Pot(paid link), I used the normal setting and set the pressure cooker to high then closed the top according to the instructions.

Once the top is opened, add water and corn starch to a small bowl and stir until blended then add to the pot of cooked ingredients and stir.
Server hot with optional rice.
Once the cooking time is complete, be sure to release the pressure by switching the steam top before opening.
