Harvest Apple Beef stew


What's Cookin!


I seriously get butterflies for the Harvest season. It truly is the loveliest smile of the year for me. Today I am sharing how to make Apple Beef stew in the Instant Pot.  I already have my next two months planned out for Harvest meals in the Instant Pot.

As per my usual experimental self, I decided to go on Facebook live to make this recipe. I never made it before. I took several traditional recipes I found for the crock-pot and the dutch oven and I made it my own. It truly is delightful and delicious and I am happy to pass along to you. If you missed my home made apple sauce, check that out HERE

It wasn’t too sweet, nor too bland. For me personally the flavor was on point.  I did not add any salt to the stew, so if you like salt add to your own liking. I did however use a fabulous seasoning on the beef. When cooking in the pressure cooker you need extra seasoning.  Find Insta-Beef HERE. Insta beef has a hint of brown sugar, espresso bean, and chile seasoning. Very well balanced spice and rub. I should know, I helped my husband create it:)

The color of the stew was just perfect as well. Looked like a true harvest stew. I used corn starch in lieu of flour to thicken the broth.  Flour tends to turn a cloudy white and I did not want that for this dish. I wanted too see all the pretty colors. I love COLOR even in my food.


Pin it, make it and Enjoy!

Step 3

If you have a tempered glass lid, place on pot and reduce saute to normal setting. Cover your pot and let simmer for at least 20-30 minutes being sure you mix in between in order to reduce any scorching on the bottom.

Step 4

While your meat and onions are sauteing...start prepping and peeling your apples. I used an apple peeler but ran into an issue because of the size of the apple. I wound up hand cubing and peeling half the apples. No biggie..carry on:)

Step 5

After your meat and onions have simmered for the time above, start adding in your liquid. Two cups of apple juice, two cups of water. Mix well.

Step 6
