How to make beef soup in instant pot?
Well, it couldn’t be easier. The instant pot makes this soup a very hands-off recipe. It’s just basically dumping all the ingredients in and let it cook.
I think the trickiest part of using the sauté setting on the instant pot, which is not tricky at all.
How to long to cook beef stew in the pressure cooker?
Once you’ve sautéed the beef stew meat then you’ll need to set the pressure cooker for 20 minutes. It takes some time to allow the instant pot to heat up, then 20 minutes to cook and then at least another 20 minutes to release the pressure.
This isn’t a fast beef stew recipe but it’s a lot faster and super hands-off compared to traditional recipes that require hours of slow cooking on the stovetop. This can easily be made any night of the week, not just for special occasions.
