  • 3 pounds stew beef
  • 1 cup flour seasoned to taste with salt and pepper
  • 1-2 Tablespoons oil to brown meat
  • 4 carrots peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 ribs celery cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion chopped into large chunks
  • 6-8 garlic cloves peeled and smashed
  • 2 1- ounce packages dried mushrooms rehydrated and chopped
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms quartered
  • 16 ounces baby potatoes
  • 3-4 sprigs thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 cups [beef stock] divided
  • Mushroom water
  • 2 cups red wine
  • 4 Tablespoons cornstarch with enough water added to make a slurry


  • Rehydrate mushrooms in 2 cups of boiling beef stock.
  • Drain rehydrated mushrooms, reserving liquid.
  • Rinse rehydrated mushroom thoroughly and drain well.
  • Chop and set aside.
  • Toss beef chunks with seasoned flour.
  • Add oil and beef chunks to instant pot and sauté until browned, about 10 minutes.
  • Add carrots, celery, onion, garlic, dried mushrooms, fresh mushrooms, potatoes, thyme, bay leaves, beef stock, mushroom water, and red wine.
  • Seal instant pot and select pressure cooker mode.
  • Turn knob to select stew.
  • Press start.
  • When the cooking is done, stir in the slurry and cook for an additional 5 minutes until sauce is thickened.


  • If you don't have stew beef, you can easily substitute with short ribs or chuck roast!
  • Don't skip rehydrating the mushrooms. This really helps develop the flavor of the stew.
  • Make sure you save the liquid from the mushrooms.
  • Pick out the herbs once the stew is done cooking.
  • This recipe freezes really well!
