I threw together a beef and noodles Instant Pot recipe with steak the other night. It came out so good that I thought I’d share it with y’all. Comfort food easy Instant Pot recipe at it’s finest! Sponsored by Idaho Beef Council.

If you need easy Ninja Foodi recipes, you can use that pot instead.

Any pressure cooker brand will do. You’ll love this, I promise you.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

I have created more than a hundred easy pressure cooker recipes over the years.

The ones we make over and over again are those that are inexpensive, have few ingredients, and all 5 of us love.

  • This one falls into that category for sure!
  • If you have steak in the fridge that needs to be cooked, I suggest trying this tonight.
  • It’s really a quick one pot meal that’s creamy and delicious.

Instant Pot beef and noodles with sour cream

Like many of our other Instant Pot steak recipes, you’ll need to saute the meat and onions together. This will brown the outsides and create a nice texture. Adding the seasonings now will enhance the flavors too.

Onions can be diced or sliced. If you want them to stay in tact more when served, I would slice them thick.

Something to remember: When cooking meat in an Instant Pot you always need to deglaze the pot after you’re done. This will avoid the burn notice and save your sanity. I like using a wooden spoon or spatula.

Beef noodle casserole Instant Pot

  • Beef sliced thin
  • Egg noodles
    • bagged, dry
    • I haven’t tried frozen egg noodles yet
  • Beef broth or stock
  • Onion
sliced onions
  • Sour cream
  • Cream of mushroom soup
  • Flour or cornstarch to thicken sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Parsley is optional
    • I may add a dash of Worcestershire sauce next time too

Another tip when pressure cooking any type of Instant Pot casserole is that you don’t want to stir in the noodles. Instead, put them on top and gently submerge them into the liquid below.

Here are quick instructions but there is a printable recipe card at the bottom of this post as well.

Time needed: 15 minutes.

Instant Pot beef and noodles

  1. Saute

    Saute your beef strips, onion and seasonings together until meat is no longer pink on the outside. Drain grease from pot.

  2. Deglaze Instant Pot

    Use 1/4 c. of your broth to deglaze your pot. This means to use a wooden spatula to scrape any stuck on meat off the bottom. If you don’t your pot may stop cooking and display BURN on the screen.

  3. Whisk ingredients

    In a bowl whisk together the rest of your broth, cream of mushroom soup and flour together until smooth. Pour this into your pot.

  4. Add noodles

    Pour egg noodles on the top and gently submerge into liquid below.

  5. Cook

    Close lid and steam valve. Set to high pressure for 2 minutes for noodles to cook, followed by a quick release of remaining pressure.

  6. Thicken sauce

    Lift lid and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Stir in sour cream and serve topped with diced fresh parsley!

Something to remember: The longer this sits and cools the thicker the sauce will become. This means it is incredible the next day for lunch or dinnertime!

Super quick and easy right?? With a super quick cook time you can get fork tender beef too your family will love.

How do you thicken beef and noodles?

If at the end you still think it isn’t thick enough, turn pot to saute again. In a small bowl whisk together 2 tablespoons of corn starch with about 4 ounces of water. Add this in and allow to bubble for 2 minutes.

What side dish goes with beef and noodles?

I think it is really a one pot meal with everything included, other than vegetables. You could cook those on the side, or serve over mashed potatoes too. Make either in another pressure cooker or slow cooker.

Can beef and noodles be frozen?

You could freeze the leftovers but you’d need to defrost it before reheating in the microwave or stovetop. I recommend refrigerating instead in airtight containers and eating within a day or two.
