Instant Pot Beef Stew

Throw together this Instant Pot Beef Stew from for an easy, weeknight meal that's a happy-tummy, comfort-food bowl of goodness!

Beef stew is actually one of the earliest food memories that I have. And truth be told, I didn’t exactly love the stuff, since it was on regular rotation on our school’s lunch menu and was simultaneously goopy, yet gristly. I just wrinkled my nose typing that.
