Put meat in bowl
Season lightly with salt & pepper
Add flour, stir to coat.
Put butter in the Instant Pot, set to sauté.
Heat butter until melted & sizzling
Add stew meat, brown on all sides.
Don't stir too often; this prevents the meat from getting brown, crispy exterior. It's okay if flour coats the bottom of the pot, just don't let it burn.
Pour beef broth in pot, stir to dissolve the browned bits from the bottom.
Once dissolved, add:
- coconut aminos
- minced garlic
- tomato paste
Wash & cut mushrooms.
Peel then slice carrots into one-inch sections.
Wash potatoes, chop into one-inch cubes.
Add onions, mushrooms, carrots, potatoes to the Instant Pot, stir.
Close lid & steam valve.
Press "meat/stew" button.
After 35 minutes of high pressure, let cooker naturally cool & release pressure.
Once the pressure releases, open the steam valve, then lid.
Stir, taste, then adjust salt if needed.
Serve hot with crusty bread.
