This hearty Instant Pot Beef Stew makes a great meal for those nights when you don't have a lot of time to cook. It's easy to make and it's DELICIOUS.

As a  busy parent, there are some nights in which I just don’t have time to cook a big meal. My youngest son’s gymnastics class is held from 5-6 pm on Thursdays – talk about a bad time to have an after school activity – and by the time we get home, it’s 6:20 in the evening. I just don’t have the time to cook a decent meal and get the kids in bed on time when we get home so late. On nights like that I thank god for my Instant Pot.  Seriously, I don’t know how I ever got by without one! This Instant Pot Beef Stew recipe is ready in a little over a half hour and I love that I can make a home cooked meal for my family that doesn’t take too long to prepare.
