Instant Pot Moroccan Chickpea Stew Recipe!

We love using our Instant Pot. It makes cooking so easy! For this recipe, I use my Instant pot again. This is not a typical flavor profile in our house, but we decided to try this recipe one day and now it is a staple! The spices with the sweet flavor of the apricots and raisins give this a warm and sweet flavor. 

Be sure to cut your meat into larger chunks before cooking because they will shrink once cooked. You want to have nice chunks of meat in this stew! 

You’ll be amazed at how the apricots and raisins just melt into the sauce – you cannot find them once cooked! 

I hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you tried this and what you think!

  • When your meat is done browning, add it to your instant pot along with the apricots and raisins.
  • Add beef broth and mix well.

  • Remove the lid and add your chickpeas, potatoes, and carrots to the Instant Pot. Close the lid and star the Instant Pot on high for 4-5 minutes.
