Beef Stew

Makes 4 Servings

1 lb stew beef, cut into 2 inch chunks or smaller
32 oz (one box) beef stock
12 oz can of mushrooms
15 oz can diced tomatoes
8 oz frozen green beans
16 oz frozen lima beans
1 onion roughly chopped
1 potato roughly chopped
3 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
3 Tbs Soy sauce
2 tsp black pepper (1 tsp when serving guests)
2 tsp minced garlic
4 bay leaves

Step 1: Add Ingredients to Instant Pot
Dump all ingredients in Instant Pot and set to 40 minutes of pressure cooking.

Step 2: Release Pressure
Wait as long as you can for natural release, but 15 minutes is necessary before using the quick release method. Serve.

Sub the potato or lima beans for corn
Sub the mushrooms for another lb of meat for a richer (and more caloric!) stew
