I love turning a classic family favorite into an easy Instant Pot recipe. The best part of converting a recipe to an easier Instant Pot version is you busy mom’s get some time back in your day to spend with your family. Let the Instant Pot do all the work while you check in with your kids about their day and enjoy this delicious dinner together.

What cut of beef should I use for beef stroganoff?

For this recipe I used sirloin steak, but some times I use round steak, or even cube steak. When you pressure cook steak even a tougher cut of meat you will be pleasantly suprised at just how tender and delicious it comes out. If you don’t have any steak on hand you could certianly substitute ground beef as well for an even more budget friendly dinner.

Easy Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff

Once you have decided what cut of steak you want to use, thaw and slice it against the grain into 1/2 inch strips and set it aside. To make dinner time easier prepare the steak and store in an air tight container for up to 24 hours. When your ready to cook select the sauté function on the Instant Pot add 2 Tbsp. of EVOO and wait until the display read HOT.

While the Instant Pot is heating up dice up a medium white onion and mince the garlic. For a shortcut I love using pre minced garlic, really saves time and a mess. Next heat 4 cups of water with 4 Tbsp. of Better Than Bullion Roasted Beef and stir to combine.

When the Instant Pot display reads HOT add diced onion and minced garlic. Sauté for 2 minutes. Next add the steak strips and season with salt and pepper. Continue sauteing for 2-3 more minutes. Pour in the beef broth you have prepared and deglaze the bottom of the Instant pot by scraping all of the stuck on tidbits off with a wooden spatula. Add in Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and stir to combine. On top of the beef mixture add the egg noodles and using your spatula press them into the liquid so they are submerged.



How to cook Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff 

Making sure your ingredients do not go over the max fill line of the Instant Pot inner pot and place the lid on and lock it in place. Turn the vent knob to the sealing position and select pressure cook/manual and set the cook time for 5 minutes. The Instant Pot will take around 10 minutes to come to pressure before it starts the 5 minute cooking cycle. When the Instant Pot beeps to signal the cooking cycle is complete immediately release the pressure. This will take a few minutes to release  completely. When the pot has depressurized carefully remove the lid and stir to  combine the ingredients. At this time add the fresh sliced mushrooms and sour cream and place the lid back on to warm through for 3-4 minutes.

You never want to add a thickener ingredient like sour cream or cream of soup before you pressure cook. Thickeners and milk based ingredients should always be added at the end of pressure cooking. To cook further you can always return the Instant Pot to the sauté function if the keep warm setting isn’t warming the dish fast enough.

What can I use in place of sour cream in beef stroganoff?

As I mentioned above you may prefer using plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream in your stroganoff, but you could also try substituting with cottage cheese, cream cheese, coconut milk, cashew milk, or heavy cream.
