Instant Pot Beef Stew Made w/ Leftover Beef Ribs or Steak
As I always say…use what you got for a really great soup…like Beef Stew!!
This meal is also amazing for leftover steak or roast. You can also just pick up some inexpensive stew meat. This meal can be made with just about any beef!
Once you are done cooking the broth – get as much meat as possible off the bones. I also used a small sliver I had leftover from the roast too. You can use roast – steak – or any other kind of beef basically!
In a pan (or in the Instant Pot) melt butter and sautee the onions. Then pour in the red wine if using and cook it down. Up to you!
Add all of the other ingredients to the pot. Set to stew and let it cook!
Serve with Vortex Air Fryer toast points!
