The easiest and most comforting bowl of instant pot beef stew! The only beef stew recipe you will need this winter.
This instant pot beef stew is the easiest and most delicious recipe ever. What makes this super delicious? I’m going to go with the 10 cloves of garlic and the generous sprinkling of red crushed pepper. Don’t get upset but I didn’t have red wine so I used white instead. I may receive a lot of slack for that but it’s okay because this turned out fantastic.
I’m so happy with this instant pot, probably the best investment I made in 2017. I got on the instant pot bandwagon a little late, unfortunately.
