At this time of year, there is nothing I like to eat more than stews or soups. This Irish Beef Stew is such a deliciously simple meal, and the instant pot makes this an easy and quick recipe to get dinner on the table in a hurry.

Using frozen peas and carrots makes this beef stew easy to make with fewer ingredients. Therefore, the recipe is also budget-friendly.

I really hope you enjoy this comfort food recipe as much as we do! You can also swap the beef for lamb in this recipe and have a delicious lamb stew instead. Yummy!
