Delicious and flavorful Puerto Rican Carne Guisada or beef stewed made using an Instant Pot.

You need to try Carne Guisada or Puerto Rican Beef Stew, and if you think you are going to mess this up, may I suggest this Instant Pot recipe?

Puerto Rican Carne guisada stewed

I love Carne Guisada, and I was so afraid to try it using a pressure cooker. I made this Puerto Rican beef stew with my slow cooker, but everything has changed after purchasing an Instant Pot back in 2016.

Now hear me!

If you love to try Puerto Rican recipes, may I suggest purchasing a Crock-Pot Express Crock Programmable Multi-Cooker or an  Instant Pot (IP)?

These two things will change the way you cook and for the better!

This simple Carne Guisada recipe it’s straightforward, and you can add potatoes and olives, but we left those out because my husband doesn’t enjoy olives, and I didn’t have any potatoes left. I know, how terrible for me!

Now for what you will need for this simple to make Puerto Rican beef stew.

What are the ingredients to make Carne Guisada?

To make Puerto Rican Carne Guisada, you are going to need:

  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoon of Sofrito and you can find the recipe here or purchase it!
  • 1 lb. of beef cubes
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ teaspoon of ground Cumin – or to taste
  • 8 oz. Can of Tomato Sause
  • 1 packet of Sazon
  • 1 to 1.5 cups of Beef Broth

How to make Instant Pot Carne Guisada

Now that you have gathered all of the ingredients to make this Puerto Rican dish, it’s time to bring out the Instant Pot and get cooking. Follow the directions below:

First, start by browning the beef, and you can do this by pressing the Saute feature in your Instant Pot or other electronic pressure cookers.

Once your Instant Pot is set to the Saute mode, add olive oil and meat, brown the beef, and add salt and pepper to taste, or you can wait until the Carne Guisada is done cooking.

Once the beef is nice and brown, add sofrito, tomato sauce, sazon, cumin, and cook for about 5 minutes.

After your beef is incorporated well, add the broth, vinegar, bay leaves, and chicken bouillon.

Stir!

Press meat and set it for 35 minutes.

Let the pot release naturally.

Serve with white rice!

Now here are some notes about this recipe. You can add potatoes, carrots, or anything else your heart desires to this recipe.

I love my meat to be super tender and like to have more liquid, so I add about another cup of liquid and set it to 45 minutes and let the Instant Pot Natural Release, which may take about 15 to 20 minutes.

Remember that Instant Pot, over time, will work differently due to the seal and other things. If you feel like your beef is not tender enough for you, add another 10 minutes to your pressure cooking time.

Enjoy!
