  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb. ground beef it is best to use a lower fat content beef for this recipe, like 90/10
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary, minced **optional, but recommended (could use fresh thyme as a substitute)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 russet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-1 inch dice
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp beef base
  • 32 oz beef broth
  • 1/2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 15 oz can diced tomatoes do not drain
  • 1 12 oz bag of frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, green beans, peas, corn)
  • 1 tsp sugar **optional, but it helps cut the acidity and bite of the tomatoes


  • With your Instant Pot on saute mode soften the onions and garlic in the oil for about 3-4 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook, while crumbling for about 5 minutes (it's ok if it isn't cooked all the way thru).
    Drain the excess grease from the ground beef/onion mixture.
    Stir in the salt, pepper, rosemary (optional), potatoes, beef base, Worcestershire sauce, and beef broth, and give it a stir to incorporate everything. 
  • Turn off the saute mode, pop the lid on and set it to manual/pressure mode, on high pressure, for 4 minutes. 
    Do a quick release of pressure.
  • Stir in the tomato paste until it is dissolved. Add the can of diced tomatoes and the bag of frozen veggies. Give it a stir and let it sit for about 5 minutes so the veggies can warm thru. 
    Taste for additional seasoning (sugar, salt, or pepper).
