- 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.
