Got 30 minutes to spare? Prepare dinner using your trusty Instant Pot! This rich, comforting stew tastes as if it’s been slow-cooked for hours. But with minimal ingredients (and minimal effort), it comes together quickly without the all-day simmer. Although simple, this dish is far from plain. Thanks to the star ingredient—berbere seasoning—which is an Ethiopian staple, this flavorful stew will quickly become a family favorite. And if you have a little extra time, toss in some chopped veggies such as carrots and onions.

1 cup uncooked lentils
1 lb. tofu or uncooked beef, cubed or sliced
