How To Make Our Instant Pot Beef Daube Stew with Mashed Potatoes:
To make this delicious stew recipe, start by sprinkling some salt and pepper onto the beef cubes to season them.
Once the beef has been seasoned, get your your Instant Pot and press the SAUTE button.
After the screen on the Instant Pot reads “HOT” add the olive oil into the inner pot.
When the oil is hot, place the beef into the oil to sear the outsides of the beef for a few minutes.
NOTE: This is not to cook the meat, rather just searing the outside so we can lock the flavor in while it is cooking.
When the meat is done searing, remove it form the Instant Pot and set it aside for later.
Now, add in the chopped carrots, celery, onion, and the crushed garlic cloves to the pot and allow them to cook for about 4-5 minutes or until the begin to get slightly tender or have become a golden brown color.
Next you will need to add in the tomato paste with the vegetables and continue to cook everything for another minute.,
Once they are done cooking, pour in the cranberry juice (with the 1 teaspoon of vinegar) and scrape down the bottom of the pot with a wooden spatula to remove any of the burnt on pieces. This will help you avoid getting the BURN notice during the cooking of the stew.
It is now the time to add the braised beef into the pot along with the diced tomatoes, beef broth, fresh rosemary, fresh thyme, a bay leaf, and a dash of cloves.
You can also add any salt and pepper to your liking now, or wait until the end.
Now place the lid on the Instant Pot, turn it to seal, and then make sure the valve is in the SEALING position.
Then press the PRESSURE COOK button and set the timer for 30 minutes.
When the timer is done let the Instant Pot do a natural release of the pressure for at least 10 minutes, but the longer the better!
While the stew is cooking make up your favorite mashed potatoes!
Once the pressure has been released, you can remove the lid and find the bay leaf and throw it away.
Now simple place a generous scoop of mashed potatoes on a plate or bowl and then spoon your homemade beef stew over top!
