Irresistible Instant Pot Beef Stew

A ladle full of instant pot beef stew on a bed of the fluffiest mashed potatoes.

Or noodles. Or served with hot, crusty bread and a side salad. I’m basically trying to say serve it however your heart desires.

Can we all just agree that a pot full of homemade stew tucked away in the refrigerator is something to look forward to when you’re slammed at work and see no light at the end of the proverbial tunnel? Or perhaps that’s just me. Just sit back, take a breather, and think about that beef stew that’s hearty to the brim, filled with tender chunks of beef, soul-warming, and utterly delicious just sitting there waiting for you to get home. The fat girl inside of me is dancing with joy.


prep time: 10 MINS
cook time: 35 MINS
total time: 45 MINS

  • 1 3/4 – 2 pounds beef (chuck roast, cut into 1 1/2-2 inch pieces)
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, halved or quartered
  • 14-ounce bag (~ 2 cups) pearl onions
  • 3 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 large carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup pepperoncini (thinly sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon EACH: tomato paste and sugar
  • 1 (1-ounce) packet ranch seasoning mix*
  • 2 tablespoons: Worcestershire sauce
  • 2-3 tablespoons cornstarch*
  • 1 1/4 – 1 1/2 cup low sodium beef broth*
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced


  1. OPTIONAL: season the beef with a big pinch of salt and pepper. Heat the butter in the instant pot on the saute setting. When the butter melts, sear the beef in batches, remove to a plate.
  2. INSTANT POT: In a large measuring cup, mix the beef broth with 2 scant tablespoons of cornstarch until it dissolves. Place all the ingredients in the Instant Pot and select the meat/stew setting. Time the recipe for 35 minutes. Once the stew is cooked allow it to rest in the pot for 10-15 minutes before releasing the steam. This gives the meat a chance to really soak up all those flavors. If you feel the gravy is thin, dissolve the remaining tablespoon of cornstarch with a little water and add that in with the IP on the sautee setting.
