What Started it all:
Stew Beef, Radish, broth or stock (chicken, vegetable), instant pot

A comforting and flavorful stew that's perfect for a cozy dinner. This recipe uses an Instant Pot to make the cooking process quick and easy, while still delivering rich, deep flavors.


  • 1.5 lbs stew beef, cut into chunks
  • 1 bunch radishes, trimmed and halved
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth (or stock)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Set the Instant Pot to the sauté mode and add the olive oil.
  2. Once the oil is hot, add the chopped onion and garlic. Sauté until the onion is translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the stew beef chunks to the pot, seasoning with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook until the beef is browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle in the dried thyme and rosemary, stirring to coat the beef.
  6. Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth, making sure it covers the beef.
  7. Add the halved radishes to the pot, stirring gently to combine.
  8. Secure the lid on the Instant Pot and set it to high pressure for 35 minutes.
  9. Once the cooking time is complete, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then perform a quick release.
  10. Open the lid carefully and give the stew a good stir.
  11. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  12. Ladle the stew into bowls and garnish with freshly chopped parsley.

This hearty Italian Beef and Radish Stew is a true comfort food, perfect for those chilly evenings. The combination of tender beef and slightly peppery radishes, all cooked in a flavorful broth, makes for a satisfying meal that’s both simple and delicious. Enjoy!
