It’s pretty amazing. You can cook an entire Ninja Foodi roast in about an hour and it falls apart with the poke of a fork. It is a game changer if you want to start eating together more often but don’t have time to baby a hunk of meat until it is ready to enjoy.

Want to make spaghetti and melt cheese right on the top? NO problem with their crisp lid! This thing can do everything (except my laundry) I’m telling you. We love this over a soft bed of Ninja Foodi mashed potatoes, but you could use Ninja Foodi rice too.

If you just like it warm in a bowl with a side of easy dinner rolls that is great too. Take your pick.

  • Fresh or defrosted stew meat or beef tips
    • if yours is still frozen decrease timing by 5 minutes, then throw in rest of ingredients and continue
  • Onion
  • Frozen peas and carrots
  • Brown gravy mix packets
  • Beef broth
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Occasionally I will add a pinch of garlic salt
    • a tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce is yummy too if I have it on hand

If you have another brand of pressure cooker you can follow the same instructions below. This and all Instant Pot recipes are interchangeable if you weren’t aware already.

Pressure Cooker Beef Stew

Of course we have a list of specific Ninja Foodi recipes to enjoy too, but add them all together and there are several hundred to keep you busy. Set your Foodi to saute and add your olive oil. Add in your diced onions and stew meat that has been seasoned with salt and pepper

  1. Cook until outside pieces are no longer pink and onions have softened. Turn your pot off now
  2. Pour in 1/2 c of your beef broth. Secure your pressure cooker lid (one not attached), and close the steam valve.
  3. Set to high pressure for 20 minutes followed by a quick release. Add frozen vegetables.
  4. The frozen peas and carrots get nice and tender with this flavorful gravy the tender stew meat is swimming in.
  5. Set pot to saute again. Whisk together remaining broth with gravy packet, add this into your pot. Serve and enjoy.

Allow to thicken, then sprinkle in 2nd gravy packet, stir, and thicken more. Then serve.

I think you could easily add some diced potatoes in at the beginning if you wanted to. I might try that the next go around.If you only have the Ninja Foodi grill you won’t be able to make this in that. It doesn’t include the pressure cooking function. It does make a killer steak though.

I was in a hurry and practically dumped the ingredients in the foodie. Happily, this turned out really good and I will definitely be making this again.

That means a lot thank you for the sweet note

First time I’ve used the sauté feature on the Foodi. Came out very good. I added fresh carrots and diced potatoes to the time in pressure cooker. Can’t believe I made stew in 1/2 hour instead of 8 hours. Will do it again. Thank you.

That would be fine, just add those instead


Wednesday 10th of February 2021

Hi, I have a rump roast, have you tried this as well as the stew meat?

You could use anything you'd just need to cut it into bite size pieces at the beginning so it can get tender quickly
