Pressure Cooker, Low Carb Beef Stew

This low carb beef stew recipe is part of my attempt to create more pressure cooker recipes for busy mommas.

I didn’t grow up eating much beef stew. And until recently, I thought beef stew was made with stew meat. Stew meat is a meat that isn’t on sale around here very often, if ever. I made this stew with half of a roast that I bought on sale. You might have heard me mention before that I have a Brookshire’s in my town and they often have meat on sale for buy one get one for a penny. I can often get 4 meals from 2 beef roasts. I spend about $20 for both roasts. This ends up being very budget friendly.

This is a simple, throw everything in your crockpot or pressure cooker recipe.

These are my favorite type of recipes. When I need easy, these are what I got to. If your life is busy, this is one the recipes I would suggest for your menu. This is comforting and great for cold weather. You can make low carb cornbread to serve with this is you like cornbread with your soups/stews/chilis. My hubby thinks we are crazy but a slice of buttery cornbread goes well with these dishes.

You can use “stew meat” or ground beef, you can use your pressure cooker or crockpot, whatever you have.

This recipe is easily adaptable to what you have. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, no problem. Just use your crockpot. If you can find affordable stew meat or roasts, use ground beef instead. My friend grew up thinking all stew was made with hamburger meat. Make this recipe fit your life and your family’s preferences. This is such a yummy, perfect soup weather recipe to make.
