  • 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 with salt and pepper.  Coat the beef with 2 tablespoons flour.  On a 6-quart Instant Pot®, select the Saute setting.  Heat the oil in the Instant Pot®.  Add the beef in batches and cook until well browned, stirring occasionally.  Press Cancel.

  • Step 2

    Stir in the potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, 2 cups broth, tomato paste, Worcestershire, thyme and bay leaf.  Lock the lid and close the pressure release valve. Pressure cook on High pressure, setting the timer to 18 minutes (timer will begin counting down once pressure is reached- it takes about 15 minutes). When done, press Cancel and use the quick release method to release the pressure.

  • Step 3

    Stir the remaining broth and remaining flour in a small cup until smooth.  Select the Saute setting.  Stir the flour mixture and the peas into the Instant Pot®.  Cook, uncovered, for 1 minute or until the mixture boils and thickens.  Season to taste.
