Paleo Pressure Cooker Beef Stew!

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs beef stew meat (I used butcher box) Cut into 1½ -2 inch pieces
  • 2 T avocado oil
  • 6 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 6 celery stalks, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 – 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 6oz. can tomato paste
  • 1 package mushrooms
  • 32 oz. carton of chicken or beef bone broth (or 4-6 cups)
  • 4 potatoes of choice, cut into chunks
  • 2 t dried thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Heat 1 T avocado oil on the “sauté” or “brown” function on your pressure cooker.
  2. Once it is hot add ½ of the beef to the pot in a single layer and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Brown the beef on both sides (about 4 min per side) then transfer to a bowl to rest. Then brown the second half of the stew meat, adding more oil if necessary.
  4. Remove the remaining beef from the pot and add more avocado oil. Place the onions in the pot and sauté for a few minutes. Once the onions have begun to soften, add the garlic and stir.
  5. Deglaze the pot by adding 1 cup of broth and scraping the bottom. Then add the remaining bone broth.
  6. Add the tomato paste, mushrooms, thyme, bay leaves, and salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Stir then add the beef and stir again.
  8. Add the celery, potatoes, and carrots to the top- Do not stir.
  9. Close the lid to the pressure cooker and seal the steam release valve. Cook for 35 minutes at high pressure.
  10. Once the time is up, allow the pressure to release on its own (do not use the quick release function). This should take 10 more minutes.
  11. Release any remaining pressure with the quick release valve then open the pot.
  12. Remove the bay leaves if you can find them and stir it all together!
  13. Serve hot and enjoy!
