To get started, you will need to set your instant pot to sauté mode and add a small amount of olive oil. Next, add the meat and season it with some pepper and Italian seasoning. Stir the meat until it is browned, then remove it from the Instant Pot and set it aside.
Once the meat is removed, add some broth to the Instant Pot and use a spoon to scrape up any brown bits that may be stuck on the bottom of the pot. Next, add in some Worcestershire sauce, along with chopped onions, garlic cloves, carrots, celery, potatoes, parsnips and tomato paste. Finally, stir in the beef along with some bay leaves and seal your Instant Pot with its lid.
Set your Instant Pot to manual mode and allow it to cook for 35 minutes. Once the timer goes off, let the Instant Pot naturally release for 10 minutes before releasing any remaining pressure using the quick release valve. When you’re ready to serve your Instant Pot Beef Stew, simply stir some green peas into the mixture.
When you are ready to thicken up your Instant Pot Beef Stew even more, mix together a cornstarch slurry by combining some cornstarch with a small amount of water in a bowl or cup. Set your Instant Pot to sauté and pour in the cornstarch slurry. Stir the mixture until it’s thickened and enjoy!
