Don’t let the name of the recipe fool you–this delicious, cheesy, meat and potato stew is totally dairy free. But it tastes magnificently cheesy. This is a favorite in our household.
It’s kind of like a healthy food and comfort food at the same time. You feel good because it tastes good, but also because it sticks to your ribs and has healthy ingredients.
When I make this, I use a pound of beef and a pound of chicken. I’ve found that using two meats in a dish like this can be very interesting to the palate.
But feel free to use whatever meat you prefer, or whatever meat you happen to have on hand. It tastes good with just about anything.
I use Mt. Elbert’s seasoning from Savory Spice when I make this. It’s a fantastic all purpose seasoning and comes in handy for many dishes.
I purchase most of my spices from Savory Spice because they are very flavorful. I also like that if you go online and click on “nutrition” for an item, it will tell you what it is free from (MSG, gluten, corn, dairy, nut, sugar, sweetener, vegan, etc.).
You can also order online and have your spices shipped, if there isn’t a store near you.
Here are the ingredients you need for this Cheesy Meat and Potato Stew:
- 1 lb beef

Add the onion, potato, water, beef, and chicken to your Instant Pot and cook for 30 minutes, normal pressure, on the meat setting.
Once done, allow to sit for 15 minutes before venting pressure.
When the food is done cooking, add the ghee, all purpose seasoning, salt, and The Honest Stand cheddar style dip. Stir thoroughly.
When you’re done mixing in the final ingredients, the potatoes will have broken down to a very creamy base.
