  • 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. Or could cut in half if preferred.
  • 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.
  • Cook all pieces until they are lightly browned on both sides, then turn pot OFF/Cancel button - Important step! Remove meat from pan and pour some beef broth in to deglaze the pot (get stuck on food off bottom).
  • In a bowl whisk together cream of mushroom, onion soup mix packet. Worcestershire sauce, and remaining beef broth.
  • Add diced onions on bottom of the pot. Then put browned meat on top of that followed by soup mixture into your pot. Put lid on and close steam valve.
  • Set to pressure high for 5 minutes followed by a natural release for 5 minutes. Then let out rest of steam.
  • Lift lid and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes so sauce thickens more. Serve over rice or as is. I usually sprinkle with a bit of salt when serving because everyone prefers a different amt. of salt.
