Instantpot Lamb Stew

Cutting the wait for comfort food in half with Instantpot Lamb Stew! The perfect bowl to warm up the family on a chilly fall evening! 

I can’t believe September is almost here!  My family is preparing for the arrival of our first baby in October, and I’m in full nesting mode.  That means cleaning the house for baby, and making all the comfort food!  I am trying to prep some freezer friendly meals for when we’re too tired to make food after the baby gets here.  Soups and stews are just the thing to make ahead and freeze for later!  This Instantpot lamb stew was at the top of my list.

I’m partnering with Atkins Ranch to make this delicious instantpot lamb stew.  Atkins Ranch raises grass-fed lamb from New Zealand is the most delicious, pure and naturally raised lamb.  It is more naturally flavorful than most lamb meat.  Their lamb are 100% grass fed and finished.

What is the difference between grass-fed and grass-finished?

When you see a package of beef or lamb at the grocery store, you may notice that some are labeled grass fed.  What does that actually mean?  Most livestock are started a grass-fed diet, and may have been fed grains for the remainder of their lives.  This is called grass-fed, grain-finished beef.  Alternatively, grass-finished beef means the cow was fed grass — and nothing but grass and plants — for the remainder of its life.
 
Atkins Ranch lamb from New Zealand is 100% grass-fed and finished, and the animals roam free on pastures with minimal interaction with humans.  They are also the first lamb producer in the world to achieve Non-GMO Project verification, and the first lamb producer globally to achieve Global Animal Partnership’s Step-4 animal welfare certification.  You can find their products at your local Whole Foods!
