Today is the perfect day for a bowl of this Instant Pot Beef Stew. It is very rare that the schools ever get shut down for snow here in the Salt Lake Valley. Before today, I could only recall one other time that this has happened in my 22 years as a mother. That was until today.
We received 7 inches of snow at our home overnight. It is also suppose to continue through today. I got my automated call from the school district at 6 am for the news of the snow day. Since I work at my daughters school, that also meant no work for me either.
After we told my daughter about the call, she was extremely disappointed and wanted to go to school. It’s not the response you would expect from most kids, but it was exactly what we would expect from our daughter on the Autism Spectrum.
On days like this, I just want to snuggle up with a mug of hot chocolate or a bowl of hot soup or stew. Then I just want to relax and have a movie day. This instant pot beef stew recipe is perfect for just such a day. With the method of cooking it in the Instant Pot, it also makes this ready to eat in under an hour.Print
