Pressure-Cooker Beef Tips

These beef tips remind me of a childhood favorite. I cook them with mushrooms and serve over brown rice, noodles or mashed potatoes. Here's one of the best Instant Pot recipes for a quick and easy dinner. —Amy Lents, Grand Forks, North Dakota

  • Select saute setting on a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker and adjust for medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons oil. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Brown meat in batches, adding oil as needed. Transfer meat to a bowl.

      I found this to be very good. I didnt think that it really lacked in flavor, but would not be against adding different seasonings. I will be making this again. Thanks for the recipe.

      Made this last night and my hubby and I looooved it! Glad there was some leftover for lunch today. I used arrowroot instead of cornstarch which is what I had and 3 tbsp would probably have enough in case anyone needs to make that adjustment. I did 4 tbsp and just added more wine to thin it out. Wine-not?! Added more salt and pepper to taste at the end. Always love an excuse to open a bottle of wine when the recipe calls for it. ;) Thanks for the recipe. I definitely feel more confident using my Instantpot now.

      Made this last night and it was a total hit! Doubled the recipe and made the following changes: 1. instead of cubing the meat, I cut them into thin slices. 2. added one tsp of Better than Bouillon Roasted Garlic Base 3. added one tbsp of Better than Bouillon Roasted Beef Base 4. did not use wine, used beef broth only IT WAS DELICIOUS! The meat was really tender and there was so much flavor. This is a definite keeper! Thank you for sharing this!

      I made recipe per the directions except I increased the mushrooms. It was pretty tasty, but I think the next time I will dry-brine the steak for added flavor.

      As per other reviewers' suggestions I doubled the Worcestershire sauce, and added thyme, and garlic. Next time I will add a beef bouillon cube. It was really good. The wine gave it a great flavor. Thanks for sharing!
