Balsamic beef just sounds good, doesn’t it? I thought so when I saw a recipe for it on Pinterest . . . but then I tried it and was very unimpressed.
So I decided to come up with my own recipe for Instant Pot Balsamic Beef. I wanted something that was really different flavor-wise from standard beef stew. More specifically, here’s what I was going for:
1. A LOT of balsamic flavor;
2. Fall-off-the-bone beef;
3. Mushrooms and onions to serve with the beef;
4. Deep flavor, the kind you can only get from cooking beef with bones; and
5. An easy recipe with a short ingredient list and minimal chopping.
After a few tries, I’m excited to share the finished recipe for Balsamic Beef! Although this version is for the Instant Pot, I also include instructions for the oven and slow cooker methods below. Hope you get to try it!
