Ingredients for Beef Stroganoff

Beef – Chuck roast gives this dish the best beefy flavor and comes out very tender in a pressure cooker. You can also use stew meat or ground beef (If using ground beef, reduce the cooking time by 10 minutes).

Skip expensive rib eye or tenderloin steaks or thin strips of beef in the pressure cooker, they are better suited for a stove top beef stroganoff recipe.

Stroganoff Sauce – Use either beef broth or beef stock for a hearty flavor. A dry red wine will add a richer flavor, but it can be substituted for additional broth.

The addition of sour cream is a must in stroganoff although Greek yogurt has a similar flavor and can be used in place.

Add-ins – Use white button or brown/cremini mushrooms, they add flavor to the broth.

How to Cook Beef Stroganoff in the Instant Pot

  1. Brown beef: Brown the beef in batches per the recipe below.
  2. Add broth: Deglaze the Instant Pot (scrape up the brown bits) with a bit of broth or wine.
  3. Cook: Cook meat, broth, mushrooms, & seasonings under high pressure for 35 minutes.
  4. Thicken sauce: Release the pressure and thicken with a cornstarch slurry. Turn off heat & swirl in sour cream.

Tips for a Great Instant Pot Stroganoff

This Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff recipe is easy to make. Here are a few tips:

  • For the best flavor and tender beef, use chuck. Swap out beef for hamburger to make a ground beef stroganoff.
  • If preferred, the browning can be done in a large skillet and transferred to the Instant Pot.
  • Be sure to brown in batches. If you add too much beef to the Instant Pot, it will release liquid, and it will not brown.
  • Wine is recommended but can be substituted for extra broth.
  • Be sure to scrape all of the brown bits from the bottom of the pot to avoid a burn notice.
  • Turn off the heat before adding the sour cream, it can curdle if cooked.

What to Serve with Stroganoff

It’s the ultimate comfort food and great with any type of starch. Regardless of what you serve the stroganoff with, the side should be cooked separately.

  • Egg Noodles – Serve beef stroganoff over wide egg noodles or homemade egg noodles, cooked separately.
  • Mashed Potatoes – Try creamy mashed potatoes or garlic mashed potatoes if you’d prefer.
  • Low Carb – Low carb options include cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash.

Storing Leftovers

  • Leftovers will store for 3-4 days in the refrigerator and 2-3 months in the freezer.
  • Reheat from frozen in a covered pot on the stovetop over low heat. Add more beef broth to loosen up the gravy if needed. Store noodles separately, or make fresh ones.

Ingredients  

  • 2 pounds beef chuck or stew meat trimmed of excess fat and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion chopped

  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme leaves

Instructions 

  • In a large bowl, combine beef cubes with the flour, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and ½ teaspoon black pepper.

  • Add the onion to the instant pot (adding more oil if needed) and cook for 2-3 minutes or until slightly softened.
  • Deglaze the pan by adding the red wine and using a spatula to scrape any brown bits* off of the bottom. Let the wine simmer 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard and thyme. Stir in the beef and layer the mushrooms on top.

  • Serve over cooked egg noodles.

  1. Thank you for this recipe! I followed it exactly and it turned out perfectly tender and flavorful. This is going into my regular dinner rotation.5 stars

    1. Absolutely! Sirloin tips work great for Instant Pot beef stroganoff. We would love to hear how it turns out for you, Mindy!

  2. I was very skeptical that after only 35 minutes that the beet would be tender, usually having to cook bottom round almost 2 hours to make it tender. Followed the recipe to a T and lo and behold, not only delicious but oh so tender!!! Will be making this again and again!!5 stars

    1. I haven’t tried it so I can’t say for sure Julie, but I am not sure it will fit in a 3 quart.
