  • 1 lb beef, chuck roast, fat trimmed, cut into 1-2-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil - or olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 cup beef broth - or stock, or bone broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 2 1/2 cups red potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 cups carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup sliced celery, roughly chopped
  • 3 cups tomato juice - such as V8
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil spice
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca starch
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • To your instant pot/electric pressure cooker, add avocado oil and turn on the saute function. Allow pot to heat (will indicate "hot" when ready).
  • Season beef with salt and pepper. Once hot, add beef (may need to do this in batches) and saute until all sides are browned.
  • Add beef broth to deglaze the bottom of the pot for 3 minutes; stir and scrape the bottom to remove any browned beef bits.
  • Add the potatoes, carrots, celery, tomato juice, garlic and spices - stir to combine. Make sure that the release valve is in the sealing position. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, turn and lock the lid.
  • Using the stew/meat setting, set timer for 30 minutes. then allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes before doing a quick release.
  • Mix together tapioca starch and cold water in a small bowl to create slurry. With the sauté function on and while stirring, slowly pour the slurry into the beef stew, stirring, until the sauce has thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
