Black Pepper Beef Stew is hands down one of my favorite recipes.

The gravy is inspired by my Taiwanese night market black pepper sauce that is tangy, peppery, savory, and delicious.

The two secret ingredients that make the gravy special are ketchup and Worcestershire sauce.

Ketchup provides a subtle sweetness, while the Worcestershire sauce gives body and tanginess to the gravy.

Depending on your spice tolerance, adjust the amount of black pepper added.

I am using an instant pot to save time to make Black Pepper Beef Stew.

I prefer to sauce and brown the beef on the stove in a pan to speed up the process, but if you want a one-pot dinner, you can also use the saute function in the instant pot.

If you don’t have an instant pot, don’t worry, you can also prepare everything on the stove.

Add an extra 1.5 cup of beef stock and bring it to a simmer. Once the stew is simmering, turn the heat down to medium-low, put the lid on, and let it cook for 1.5 hours.

Make sure to stir occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom.

Beef Finger meat is my faovirte affordable and tender cut of beef I love using when making Black Pepper Beef Stew.

It is a popular cut of meat used for stews in Taiwan because it is super tender and flavourful.

You can get beef finger meat at most butcher shops and Asian grocery stores.

If you can’t find beef finger meat, you can substitute it with beef chuck or oxtail.

The cooking time in an instant pot will be increased to 45 minutes.
