- 1 - 1.5 lbs cube steak I used eye of round steak pounded flat, cut into bite size pieces
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/3 c flour
- 1 tbsp garlic salt
- pinch pepper optional
- 1 pkg. mushroom gravy .75 oz. package
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 1 c beef broth or a bit more if you want it thinner
Pound your eye of round steak with a meat tenderizer/mallet on both sides (helps make meat tender, can buy it at store already tenderized too).
Cut into bite size pieces.
Fill a gallon size storage bag with flour, garlic salt and pepper. Shake to combine.
Set Instant Pot to saute medium and add olive oil.
Put steak pieces inside baggie, zip closed and shake to coat pieces.
When Instant Pot is hot use your fingers to take pieces of floured meat out of bag shaking off excess flour before putting it into the pot.
Stir meat often and cook all pieces until they are lightly browned on both sides, then turn pot OFF/Cancel button - Important step!
In a bowl whisk together cream of mushroom, mushroom gravy packet and beef broth.
Use a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the Instant Pot where the beef has been cooked to remove pieces (helps so it doesn't come up with a burn message when you turn it back on, I typically wait 3-4 minutes after turning it off before turning it back on again to allow it to cool as well to avoid this message).
Pour soup mixture into your pot, stir together gently, put lid on, and close steam valve.
Set to pressure high for 4 minutes.
Do a quick release. Serve over rice or as is. I usually sprinkle with a bit of salt when serving because everyone prefers a different amt. of salt. (this is the perfect "doneness" for us as far as our steak is concerned, if you want it more done set for a few more minutes)
