Beef and Vegetable Stew Borsch

Easy step by step video to show you how to make Beef and Vegetable Stew / Borsch in your Instant Pot

My Dad’s super delicious (and healthy) Beef Stew aka Beef and Vegetable Stew aka Dad’s Stew. This recipe is simple to cook, but takes time to prep because of all the cutting. It’s worth all the prep though! Remember, if you want to make sure the beef doesn’t get chewy, don’t add the soy and the salt until the very very end after it’s done cooking. Growing up, I would eat this with a bowl of rice for dinner. Now, I like eating stew with a few slices of bread. MMmmm.

Here’s a recipe on proofing bread in the Instant Pot:
