Instant Pot Spicy Dominican Beef Stew
Fall is fast approaching, and it is time to gather some delicious, satisfying dinner recipes. This Instant Pot Spicy Dominican Beef Stew is oozing with so much flavour, the meat is tender enough you can shred it with a fork, and the veggies are cooked to perfection.
Dominican beef stew is all about the spices. Traditionally, this delicious beef stew is made super spicy, but if your family is not into too much heat, cut back on the jalapeno or habanero peppers to taste. This Dominican beef stew is naturally gluten-free and goes exceptionally well with dirty rice or a bowl of simple parsley rice.
Why use Instant pot for beef stew recipe?
Beef stew is typically a cheaper cut of meat and needs to be cooked longer to become tender. In this recipe, I used a top sirloin cut, but you can use traditional beef stew meat. I always trim as much fat as possible from the meat because fat can be chewy, and the stew is also healthier without the extra beef fat.
So the question remains, why use an instant pot when making a stew. Three reasons! The stew cooks much quicker in Instant pot. The stovetop stew is slowly cooked and can take up to three hours or longer for the meat to become tender. The sauce is richer because the meat is cooked under pressure and with fewer liquids, and finally, once you close the lid, you can walk away and let the instant pot do its job. You can set everything in the instant pot in the morning and go to work. When you come back the most amazing Dominican beef stew will be waiting for you to serve for dinner.
Sides for beef stew.
Dominican beef stew is made without potatoes and is typically served with rice. You can use plain rice, parsley rice, or if you feel adventurous, make the amazing dirty rice recipe. If you feel like a bit of pasta, serve the beef stew over short cut gluten-free pasta. If you are trying to keep the carbs down, serve the spicy Dominican beef stew with cabbage salad. YUM!
