  • Instant Pot


  • 1 ¼ lbs stew beef
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups beef stock (gluten free if necessary)
  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 3 pieces celery, chopped
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • ½ lb small dutch yellow potatoes, cut in half (about 10)
  • 1 cup pearl onions, peeled (about 6)
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 fresh thyme sprigs (or ½ tsp)
  • 1 fresh rosemary sprig (or ¼ tsp)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • dash of red chili flakes (optional)
  • 2 tablespoon gluten free flour (Bob's Red Mill)


  • Set Instant Pot to saute and add oil.  Generously salt and pepper beef.  Add to pot and brown in batches 4-5 minutes per side. Don't overcrowd the pan or the beef will not brown.
  • Add beef stock and tomato paste and give it a quick stir.  Scrape any bits off bottom of pot.
  • Add all remaining ingredients except flour.  
  • In a small bowl mix flour with 2 tablespoon water or beef stock.  Whisk well and add to pot.  Give everything a stir.
  • Set pot to stew / meat setting for 35 minutes. Close lid and steaming vent.
  • When it is done allow pressure to naturally release for at least ten minutes. This will ensure that the meat is not tough and I urge you not to skip this step.  
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.


Make sure your beef stock is gluten free.
