Instant Pot Spicy Beef Stew

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time40 mins
Total Time45 mins


  • 2 tbsp ghee or avocado oil
  • 1 lb beef stew meat, cut into cubes
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 medium potatoes, chopped
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 cups kale leaves, stems removed
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups bone broth
  • 2 tbsp your favorite hot sauce
  • Sea salt, to taste


  • Set your Instant Pot to Sauté setting and add avocado oil.
  • Add the meat and stir until the meat is browned.
  • Add and stir in the rest of the ingredient, except salt.
  • Close the lid, and make sure the pressure valve is set to "sealing."
  • Set the Instant Pot to Meat/Stew.
  • Once finished, about 40 minutes, the Instant Pot will beep. If you are eating right away, hit "Cancel" then release the pressure valve, making sure your hand is away from the opening where the steam escapes. If not, the Instant Pot will automatically switch to the "Warm" setting for the next 10 hours and the pressure will slowly lower on its own.
  • Taste and salt, if necessary.


Don't have an Instant Pot? You can place everything in a slow cooker and cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours!
