Instant Pot Swiss Steak Stew -Pressure Cooker Recipe

I thought I'd make a small change to a traditional recipe to make it work for me, and this Swiss Steak Stew turned out to be a nice Sunday dinner:@) I wanted my beef to be fork tender so I used my Instant Pot pressure cooker. But at the same time, we do like our vegetables to still have a little body and bite, so the vegetables got added after the meat cooked. Served it over mashed potatoes for a retro diner kinda feel... Wa-la, a very hearty meal for the cooler months! 
The tomato gravy was really different and this will be added to our meal rotation:@)
Recipe inspiration from The Iowa Housewife.

I'm Joining:


  1. I need to dust of my instant pot, I don't use it enough, and haven't had beef stew in forever!

  2. I’m like Jenna, and don’t use my Instant Pot enough, either, Lynn. This meal looks like pure comfort food!
