Adding an Italian twist to a traditional beef stew recipe is quick and easy with the Instant Pot®.  Using only 6 ingredients including a jar of perfectly seasoned Prego® sauce, you'll have a delicious stew, including a full serving of veggies, in only 45 minutes.


  • 2 pounds boneless beef chuck roast, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) Prego® Fresh Mushroom Italian Sauce
  • 1 cup dry red wine (we like pinot noir)
  • 16 ounces frozen peas and carrots


  • Tips

    • Recipe Note: Multi-cooker settings and features vary widely across different models and brands.  Refer to the manual for your cooker to learn which functions will produce the cooking methods (saute, pressure cook) needed for this recipe.
  • Step 1

    Season the beef as desired.  Add the beef, onion, garlic, sauce, wine and frozen peas and carrots to the Instant Pot®.

  • Step 2

    Lock the lid and close the pressure release valve.  Select the Pressure Cook or Manual setting according to which model of Instant Pot® you're using. (If using Manual setting, select High pressure.)  Set the timer for 15 minutes (timer will begin counting down once pressure is reached).  When done, press Cancel and use the quick release method to release the pressure.

  • Step 3

    Select the Saute setting.  Cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until the sauce is thickened.  Season to taste.  Serve the stew with crusty bread for dipping or over hot cooked egg noodles or polenta, if desired.
