This instant pot no bean beef chili is hearty with chunks of tender beef, a tomato base, and spicy jalapeno.

Cube the meat, chop the onions & garlic, and handle with care when seeding and chopping the jalapeno.

Set IP to sauté & add oil to the bottom. Add cubed meat and brown using tongs to turn the pieces, around 2 minutes.

Turn the IP off. To the beef, add the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, onion, garlic, jalapenos, sugar, flour and spices.

Add beer & stir. Place the lid, lock it & point valve to 'sealed'. Set to the 'meat/stew' for 45 minutes.

Once done, let the pressure down naturally for 15-20 minutes. Turn the valve to 'venting' to release any further steam then open the lid.

Serve with tortilla chips, sharp cheddar cheese, white onion, and sour cream.
