I love stews and soups a lot! But they can take a while to make because of all the peeling and chopping of the vegetables. For this cheater beef stew I found a product that is a major time-saver. I found a bag of frozen stew vegetables (potatoes, carrots, onions and celery) at my grocery store and decided to give them a shot. They worked really nicely in this stew. I will definitely use this time-saver again. Of course if you don’t want to buy frozen vegetables you can just cut up your own potatoes, carrots, celery and onions.

I also decided to cheat on the browning step. I didn’t do it. I just threw the meat in raw. The meat still was very tasty and tender. Plus I used a package of stew meat instead of buying a roast and cut it up myself.

The third cheat on this recipe was using a packet of onion soup mix and brown gravy mix. No measuring of ingredients, just throwing it all in. Everything was seasoned nicely.

If you’re in a hurry but still want to have dinner on the table tonight this is a great recipe for you! Pick up some crusty bread to serve with it and you’re set.

What Pressure Cooker Did You Use?

To make Instant Pot Cheater Beef Stew I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I love this Instant Pot because it has the yogurt making function which I use almost weekly.  It has two pressure settings (high and low), and there are also little slots in the handles so that you can rest the lid there instead of putting it down on your counter-top.
