This Instant Pot Venison Stew is easy to make and is the coziest winter dinner.  Simply substitute beef stew meat if needed.



1 medium onion, diced

6 cloves garlic, sliced

1 lb. Venison or beef stew meat

1/4 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup red wine

4 cups beef stock

1 can tomato paste

4 medium red potatoes, chopped

1 package Onion Soup Mix

2 carrots, chopped

4 stalks celery, sliced

1/2 tsp salt


Using the saute setting on your Instant Pot, saute olive oil, meat, and onions for 5-8 minutes

Add garlic and stir until fragrant

Add flour and stir to combine

Allow it to cook for 5 minutes or until browned bits develop on the bottom of the pot

Pour in red wine and scrape, scrape, scrape, the browned bits off

Turn off the saute’ setting

Place the remainder of the ingredients in the pot and stir until the tomato paste is incorporated

Set the Instant Pot to “Manual” for 35 minutes, ensure the toggle is pushed all the way toward “Sealing”

Once the cooking time has ended, release the pressure by pushing the toggle toward “Venting” with a long handled spoon or other device to keep your hands away from the steam that will escape at high velocity.

Give it all a stir and let it stop bubbling before serving
