Cooking Equipment

  • A Comfee pressure cooker. It is basically 9 kitchen appliances into one and is not just a pressure cooker. In fact, you can even make yogurt, cake, eggs, and rice with it. Furthermore, you can even use it as a slow cooker, sauté pan, food warmer, and steamer.
  • A small bowl
  • A spoon


  • First, pour some olive oil into the Comfee pressure cooker and place it in sauté mode. Once the oil starts sizzling, put in your meat and all your seasonings.
  • Keep cooking the meat until it starts to brown on each side.
  • Next, pour your beef broth into your instant spot. Using a spoon, start scraping the brown bits found at the base of your instant pot.
  • You can now add your garlic, onion, carrots, potatoes, worcestershire sauce, and crushed tomatoes.
  • Afterward, put the lid and steam valve back into your pressure cooker. Place your pressure cooker on high pressure for about thirty-five minutes.
  • After cooking your beef stew on high pressure for thirty-five minutes, let its pressure out on its own for ten minutes. After that, you can now carry out a quick release.
  • Finally, you can add your cornstarch slurry into your beef stew. Do this by mixing corn starch in a bowl filled with cold water.

Voila! There you have it. You now have a delicious beef stew made with little to no hassle.
