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

Trust me, that’s easier than anything!

Put the lid on it! 🙂 select pressure cook (or Manual) and set for 35 minutes.

The pot will heat up and then come to pressure, cook for 35 minutes and then it will beep. At this point, simply let it sit for 5-10 minutes! This is what we call Naturally releasing the pressure (NPR)

release the remaining pressure, open lid and stir and serve!

We love stew with a little bread!
