Instant Pot Beef Stew (Carne Guisada)

This Carne Guisada is a delicious Latin Beef Stew made with chunks of beef slowly cooked in the most delicious flavorful tomato sauce. Carne Guisada is a popular dish in Latin America. It has become a staple of Dominican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Mexican cuisines. Each Latin American country has its own unique cultural culinary influences, which can affect the flavor and ingredients used to make Carne Guisada. Today I’ll share my version of Dominican cuisine using a pressure cooker.. This recipe can be made on the stove take a look at my stovetop BEEF STEW CARIBBEAN STYLE (CARNE GUISADA) RECIPE. 

To make this Carne Guisada I used my pressure cooker. The Instant Pot had worked its magic and the meat was perfectly cooked in less time than it would have taken on the stove. I was thoroughly impressed with the results and will definitely be using my Instant Pot more often in the future.

HOW TO MAKE CARNE GUISADA (BEEF STEW) USING AN INSTANT POT

THE FIRST STEP IS TO SEASON THE MEAT. I use fresh mashed garlic, diced small red onion, and half of a small bell pepper. I add soy sauce and a mix of spices such as paprika, cumin, sazon salt, and black pepper. And of course, the oregano, which I have from The Dominican Republic, but any kind of oregano works fine. Add the juice of a lime and mix all the ingredients until they are well incorporated into the meat and then set it aside.

THE-FIRST-STEP-IS-TO-SEASON-THE-MEAT

Instant Pot Settings: I use Saute and Meat/Stew: 

Next, Set your pressure cooker or instant pot to the sauté setting and add the oil.

Once the oil is hot, add some of the cubed meat in batches. It’s important not to overcrowd the pressure cooker to ensure the meat gets a nice color. I recommend doing it in three batches.

On the last batch, add the rest of the meat back into the instant pot, and ½ cup of water. Stir, close the lid of the pressure cooker, and set the meat/stew on high for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes of cooking, carefully release the steam from the pressure cooker and then it’s safe to open the lid. The meat should now be tender.
