An Instant Pot recipe for one of my most popular family recipes: Lebanese Green Beans and Beef. Beef is cooked in a rich, cinnamon-scented tomato sauce until tender. A family favorite!
So many of you have been requesting more Instant Pot recipes so as promised, here is another one! While not every recipe is made better (or faster) in an Instant Pot, this Lebanese stewed beef recipe is ideal for it.
Rich, flavorful and aromatic, the beef becomes extremely tender as it cooks in the cinnamon and all-spice scented tomato sauce. Green beans can be fresh or frozen, whole or chopped. In fact, I usually keep a bag of frozen chopped in my freezer at all times for this particular recipe.
To serve, we love adding a dollop of Lebanese Cucumber Laban, a creamy yogurt, garlic and mint sauce. The tangy yogurt balances the rich beef and it also helps cool down the dish for hungry kids who are too impatient to wait.
Your fork is waiting.

- Place all of the ingredients in the bottom of the liner pot.
- Close the lid, make sure the vent is closed then press "MEAT/STEW". Once the timer goes off, release the pressure naturally using NPR. This may take up to 30 minutes.
- Remove the lid carefully and serve over Syrian Rice Pilaf if you wish.
