Instant Pot Stew Meat Beef and Broccoli is an easy and quick dinner that won’t heat up your kitchen. It has amazing flavor and your family will love it.
I have been on a mission to find ways to use stew meat for things other than stew. So far I have made Stew Meat Tacos, Stew Meat Beef Stroganoff, and Chile Colorado Burritos. All of these recipes can be made in the instant pot as well.
Stew meat can be tough, but if it’s cooked properly it is delicious and tender. It is also a versatile meat that can be used in almost any beef dish. Just season according to the type of entree you are making.
Stew Meat Beef and Broccoli in the Instant Pot is a great meal for a quick and easy dinner. I love that I can pop this in after work and have dinner pretty quickly. It’s also great for summer time when you don’t want to heat up your kitchen.
If you have accessories that go with your instant pot, you can steam your broccoli in the instant pot and you can cook your rice in it as well. I have a second smaller instant pot that I cook my rice in and steam my broccoli. But both can be cooked on the stovetop as well.
