Instant Pot Sausage and Lentil Stew has a lightly smokey, savory, flavor with a hint of spice is rich in taste and extremely filling. Prep your ingredients and toss them all into the Instant Pot and you’re well on your way to an amazing dinner.
Set your Instant Pot to “saute” and add the Olive Oil, Garlic Cloves, Celery, Red Bell Pepper, and Carrots, cook for 5 minutes, tossing occasionally. Add the Smoked Sausage and continue to cook for an additional 3 minutes.
Add all the remaining ingredients to the Instant Pot (Lentils, Worcestershire Sauce, Paprika, Cumin, Beef Broth, Stock Cube, Tomato Paste, Brown Sugar, Salt, and Pepper). Using the “manual” setting set the time to 15 minutes. Release all the steam once done and season with any additional spices.
Since the sodium is on the high end for this soup recipe you can omit to the beef stock cube to cut it down even more, and make sure to use low-sodium beef broth.
