Pressure Cooker Beef Stew

Pressure Cooker Beef Stew is easy, delicious, and the perfect comfort food for a chilly evening.

Pressure Cooker Beef Stew

There is nothing like a nice hearty bowl of stew on a cool day. When I was growing up my mama made hamburger stew because ground beef was crazy cheap compared to what it is today. I hope to share that recipe pretty soon because it is delicious as well.

Today I’m sharing a more traditional beef stew. It’s still a little different than a lot of folks because I add corn, green beans, and peas. I figure the more veggies you can add to a recipe the better.

I didn’t think I would find a recipe that surpasses my slow cooker stew but this pressure cooker beef stew does. It doesn’t take hours and hours in a slow cooker so you can even have stew on a weeknight.
