Instant Pot Butternut Squash Beef Stew

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Beef Stew

I know we are heading into Spring, but we have had a few cold rainy days still. So, this cozy stew was perfect! It’s really one of those recipes where anything goes, and if you like more meat or more veggies, whatever you’d like go for it!

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Beef Stew

Really, this recipe is more like a starting place 🙂

I started this recipe with a “block” of frozen stew meat pieces. You can use fresh or frozen.

Dust it with a little flour and saute with some butter in your instant pot. When using thawed meat you can get a nice sear on the meat and it adds some extra flavor. But, even with the frozen this stew ended up being flavorful and tender!

Add a little oil (any you prefer) and add the onion, salt, and pepper. stir. Now just throw in the mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes, and butternut squash to the pot!

Pour in 2 cups of beef broth and all the seasonings!

Now it’s time to cook your Instant Pot Butternut Squash Beef Stew

Calling all the Veggies, “get in my Instant Pot!!!” 🙂

Steaming veggies in our “magic” pot is super simple!

Although it may be easy, I know all things Instant Pot were nerve-racking and intimidating for all of us at one time. So, I thought I would just quickly explain how I do it and of course you should try it and find exactly how you like it!

 

For most vegetables I would cook them in the Instant pot on the manual setting (high pressure) for 0 minutes! Yep! zero minutes! This means that it will come to pressure and then immediately be done. And always do a quick release to stop the cooking right away!  The only time I have it in the pot for any longer, is if it’s a little tougher veggie, but even then it’s usually just 1 or 2 minutes!

I’ll give a couple of examples:

First up let me show you these delicious, amazing brussels sprouts (No, I’m not even joking, they are my new favorite veggie)

Brussels sprouts

I adapted this to start in the Instant Pot and then finish in a pan (but actually you could saute in the pot, not sure why I didn’t think about that until now). The original recipe comes from my beautiful friend Tiffani Swain.

 

There are a few ways to put your veggies in the pot.

1. Straight in the pot with the water.

2. On the trivet or in a steamer basket .

3. In a bowl with the water on top of the trivet. This is called Pot in pot (pip) cooking. If you don’t have a steamer basket this is a great option to easily remove all the sprouts after cooking.

Whichever way you choose, you’ll just need a cup of water and the brussel sprouts.

Trim off the ends and if they are pretty big, cut them in half. Brussels in the IP

 

 

 

 

Close the lid and seal. Set for 1 minute and you’ll be ready in no time.

 

You’ll need Garlic, Butter, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese to finish these beautiful veggies.  Salt and pepper box

Have I posted about my awesome salt and pepper box?? I’m not joking when I say this is the first thing I bought for the new kitchen project. I had it sitting on my wish list for a while and as soon as we finished setting a budget and planning, I ordered it from amazon! 🙂 It’s my favorite and you can get one here!

 

Melt the butter and saute the garlic until fragrant. Add the steamed brussels to the pan and saute for several minutes, stirring frequently. Once done (I usually like a little crispy edges from the saute, but if in a hurry I just take them off after they are completely coated in the yummy butter. delish either way!) sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

 

we really do love these Garlic Butter and Parmesan Brussel Sprouts Instant Pot Version.
