Can this soup be made on the stove top? 
This soup is traditionally made on the stove top and simmered for hours. Pressure cooking cuts out the extra time and still gives it the same delicious taste. If you'd like to cook on the stove top, follow the same steps then let simmer on low for 6-8 hours.
How to store ground beef stew?
You can store this soup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Make sure your soup is completely cooled before refrigerating. This recipe reheats great in the microwave and is perfect for quick lunches.
