So I’ve been seeing these electric pressure cookers all over the place lately, and I finally jumped on the bandwagon and bought one. Which means I’ve been making all kinds of pressure cooker recipes lately. Everything from cheesecake to creme brulee to main dishes like this family favorite Beef Stroganoff.
Maybe your mom had a pressure cooker when you were a kid, like mine did. I don’t know about you, but I thought it was the scariest thing in her kitchen. Whenever she used it, I was pretty sure it was going to explode! But with these new-fangled electric pressure cookers, you’ll have none of that scary steam hissing from the pot.
The best thing about a pressure cooker, of course, is that it’s fast! Super fast! In fact, after 30 minutes in an Instant Pot (which is the brand I purchased) the beef in this stroganoff was much more tender than any beef stroganoff I’ve ever made in my slow cooker.
Since my husband loves beef stroganoff, it was the first recipe I tried in my Instant Pot, and boy was it ever a hit. We really couldn’t believe how tender the meat was. And I also love that you can use the Instant Pot to brown. In this case, I browned the beef before cooking it, and also sautéed the mushrooms and onions before turning on the pressure.
Served over a bed of egg noodles, this meal was true comfort food, and I absolutely love that it came together so quickly! Don’t even get me started on how awesome electric pressure cookers are at making things like cheesecake and creme brulee. I promise, those recipe will show up here in the near future.
For now, enjoy this delicious beef stroganoff. It’s the perfect meal for a chilly fall day!
Pressure Cooker Beef Stroganoff
Tender chunks of beef in a savory mushroom sauce, ready in about 40 minutes in your pressure cooker.
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 2.5 lbs. Sirloin Tip Roast, cubed
- 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 3/4 cups beef broth
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- Cooked egg noodles, for serving
- In a gallon sized zip top bag, mix together the flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, rosemary and paprika. Add the cubed beef and toss to coat.
- Set the pressure cooker to browning and add 2 tablespoons of oil. Working in small batches, taking care not to over crowd the pot, brown the meat on all sides. Remove the beef to a plate.
- Add the mushrooms and onions to the pressure cooker, adding more oil if needed and cook for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute.
- Return the beef to the pressure cooker, along with any juices that have accumulated on the plate. Stir in the beef broth.
- Place the lid on the pressure cooker and set it to high for 20 minutes.
- After 20 minutes has elapsed, allow the pressure cooker to naturally release the steam. This will take 10-15 minutes. Carefully remove lid.
- Place the sour cream into a small bowl and ladle about 1/4 cup of the hot liquid from the pressure cooker into the sour cream and stir.
- Stir the sour cream mixture back into the pressure cooker with the meat. Season with additional salt and pepper, if needed, to taste. Serve over egg noodles.
