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

Instructions
  1. turn your Instant Pot on to Saute and allow to heat up a minute.
    Add Oil and swish around, add meat.
    Allow the meat to brown, stirring frequently to brown all sides.
    Be sure to scrape up any bits on the bottom of the pot.

  2. Add bullion and enchilada sauce, stir and secure the lid
    Make sure the valve is set to seal and press pressure cook
    Adjust time to 12 minutes. This came to pressure in under 10 minutes because the pot is already hot.

  3. Let the meat Naturally Pressure Release for 5-10 minutes. Then release the remaining pressure manually.

  4. Meanwhile, heat up the refried beans (using the microwave or a saucepan on the stove top.)

  5. Place Tortillas on your plates ( I like deep dish plates for all that yummy sauce)
    Spoon some beans on each tortilla and a spoonful of meat
    roll up the tortilla.

  6. Pour sauce over the top and sprinkle with cheese.
    ( If you are making this right away the cheese will melt but if not, you can stick this under the broiler for a minute or two)

    We love to finish this off with a dollop of sour cream and dip tortilla chips in the sauce!
