I have been crazy busy creating lots of easy Instant Pot recipes on The Typical Mom and this easy Instant Pot beef stroganoff recipe just had to be next! This is a meal I remember my grandmother making when I was a kid. Total comfort food that is creamy, packed with vegetables (if you want), and the tenderest beef ever when you use your pressure cooker. (originally published 5/17)
I will tell you I have made crockpot beef stroganoff for years but when I got my Instant Pot last Christmas I haven’t used my crockpot very much at all because I can get everything made so much quicker in this new all in one appliance!
This is what you will need for this easy Instant Pot beef stroganoff recipe:
- Instant Pot or pressure cooker
- Beef stew meat – you could use ground beef if you prefer and just drain after cooking
- Cream of mushroom soup
- Or make homemade cream of mushroom soup
- Sour cream
- Beef broth
- Egg noodles – I like this style
- Vegetables (if you want – I add onions, carrots, and mushrooms)
Why we love cooking beef stroganoff in our pressure cooker
- The meat comes out incredibly tender in a short amount of time
- There’s no need to stand by the stove and ensure it doesn’t burn, your Instant Pot will do all the work for you
- The flavors soak into your vegetables and meat during the pressure cooking process to create a creamy/tender meal all of us love
My kids aren’t real fans of red meat, other than hamburger. It is mostly due to the texture and it being a bit tough (tougher when they have braces).
When you make this the beef becomes really soft and tender soaking up all the sauce and juices in just 15 minutes which is perfect for our busy lives.
- If you do not have a pressure cooker I would highly recommend it, it has allowed us to eat together more often and I cook more often and healthier traditionally too.
Here are a few other family friendly recipes I know you’ll love too:
This is what it comes out looking like!
It’s almost better the next day, so needless to say if you have leftovers (we rarely do) you’ll have a great lunch waiting for you. 😉
Why I cook the egg noodles separately
- The beef needs a good 15 minutes to cook and become as tender and I want it, that is far too long for any style noodle to be cooked in a pressure cooker.
- My husband prefers to have the noodles cooked separately (I have cooked casseroles with everything together like with our Pressure cooker Dorito casserole and the girls and I love that but he prefers separate…so I have not experimented with cooking everything together at the end on this particular beef stroganoff recipe)
- My youngest sometimes wants plain noodles so that option is open using this method.
