Confession: Campbell’s Chunky Steak and Potato Soup was my absolute favorite when I was growing up. Truth bomb #2: if I didn’t have an issue digesting gluten, I would 200% not be resistant to eating a can of it every now and again. 

There’s nothing like a thick, comforting soup that warms and fills the belly! While it’s been ages since I’ve eaten the canned soup, a cleaner, even tastier rendition is easy to make at home. Plus, I like adding bacon…so you know it’s MEGA!

In the past, when I’ve made beef soups on the stove top, the meat has always turned out hard and difficult to chew. Cooking it in the Instant Pot is the ultimate remedy and results in the most tender, flavorful meat without a huge time investment.

Let’s make it already!

How to Make Instant Pot Steak and Potato Stew:

Turn on your Instant Pot and press Sauté.

Add the chopped bacon and cook 1 to 3 minutes, until much fat has rendered. 

Add the onion and sauté, stirring frequently until onion is translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add in the chopped steak and brown a couple of minutes until steak has a nice sear on it.  Add the remaining ingredients to the Instant Pot and secure the lid.

Press the Pressure Cook button and set the time to 45 minutes. Make sure the pressure release valve is set to Sealing (note: you can also use the Stew/Meat function).

Once the Instant Pot has run its cycle, allow it to go into its Keep Warm mode for 10 minutes (or up to 30 minutes if you aren’t around).

Manually release any remaining pressure.

Serve stew with any toppings you like. I just add some chopped green onion and call it gravy, but you can also serve with sour cream, yogurt, cheese, avocado, etc.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Save yourself some time and expense by using beef stew meat instead of sirloin steak.
  • Omit the bacon and use 2 tablespoons of avocado oil instead.
  • Add fresh herbs.
  • Use sweet potatoes or jewel yams instead of yukon gold potatoes. Note if you do this, your soup will turn out sweeter.
  • Add 2 to 3 teaspoons of tapioca flour to thicken the soup into a stew consistency.

Will regular beef broth or beef stock work as well as the bone broth?? this recipe sounds delicious and easy to fix. I am looking for some that are easy and can be frozen. I work at a prison and we have very few choices for our lunch unless we eat there or bring our own.

@MelanieLucas, I used regular stock and it turned out tasting great! A little thinner, but still delicious!

What a great recipe!!! So I'm interesting in saving some $$... how would the cooking time change using stew meat? Should I use a different setting? I adore your recipes and love all the instant pot ones you're sharing!!

Thanks HIllary
