Irish Stew

Instant Pot Irish stew has so much flavor from the Guinness, beef, and other simple but delicious ingredients. It’s loaded with veggies and made in one pot!

If you haven’t tried Irish stew before, you’ll be blown away by it’s deep flavor.

Although it looks like the ingredient list is long, its basic stuff, most of which you can dump in quickly and doesn’t complicate the recipe.

You start by using the sauté feature on the instant pot to brown the beef. The sear is where all the flavor comes from.

Deglaze the pan with Guinness and scrape up the browned bits on the bottom of the pot, and then add the beef stock, Dijon, tomato paste, thyme, Worcestershire, and bay leaves.

Set to pressure cook on high for 30 minutes and then naturally release pressure.

A crusty bread or biscuit is an absolute MUST in my opinion!
