If you don’t have an Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker by now, it’s time to hop on the bandwagon!
We talked all about electric pressure cookers, sous vide’s and air fryers on the latest episode of the Feed Me! podcast: Hot Kitchen Picks for 2019!
Pressure cooking is a great way to make deliciously flavorful food in a very short amount of time. Take a beef chuck roast and turn it into this amazing French Onion Pot Roast or make the best Beef Ragu in just an hour!
Speaking of the best, this is seriously the best beef stroganoff I’ve ever had! Kurt said that anytime I ask what he wants for dinner from now on, he will say this dish!
I used a beef chuck roast for this recipe, making it a cross between a pot roast and beef stroganoff. The beef is so tender and flavorful, the sauce, so creamy and the egg noodles tie the whole thing together. The best part is, everything cooks in the Instant Pot making clean-up a breeze!
How do you make beef stroganoff in a pressure cooker?
Use the “saute” function on the pressure cooker to cook onions, garlic and mushrooms in butter. Rub a beef chuck roast with salt, pepper and paprika. Add to the pressure cooker and sear on both sides for 2-3 minutes.
Turn the pressure cooker over to the pressure cook mode, add beef broth and cook for 60 minutes on high.
When the time is up and pressure has released, remove the beef chuck roast from the pressure cooker and add the egg noodles. Place the lid back on the pressure cooker and set timer for an additional 5 minutes. Meanwhile, use two forks, or meat claws, to shred the beef.
After 5 minutes, remove the lid and place the shredded beef back in the pressure cooker, along with sour cream, half and half and parmesan cheese. Stir together and serve.
Can you cook noodles in an instant pot?
Absolutely! The noodles for this beef stroganoff cook right in the mushroom beef broth in the Instant Pot.
You never want to put noodles in an Instant Pot for more than the recommended time or they will become mushy.
What goes with Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff?
Instead of noodles, this beef stroganoff can also be served over rice.
For a gluten free and low carb option, serve the beef with zucchini noodles, roasted spaghetti squash or a salad.
If omitting the noodles in this recipe, simply skip steps 12-15 in the recipe card below.
Is an Instant Pot the same as a pressure cooker?
Yes, an Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker.
In addition to being a pressure cooker, it can also be used to saute food, steam food or as a slow cooker or rice maker.
