Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff


Glamping and the Instant Pot! I love this IP!

I made this delicious Beef Stroganoff in the IP the other night, and guess what ......Instead of two pots (one for the beef/sauce and one for the noodles) I used one pot. I would say timing for actual cooking is about the same, but, clean up much faster!

I serve this with a green salad or a side vegetable for a delicious, satisfying meal for 4 adults with healthy appetites.



Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff
  Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 lbs, top sirloin steak or filet and cut into thin strips (or left over steak)
  • 2 T All-purpose flour
  • 3 T. olive oil
  • 3 T. unsalted butter
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces any kind of fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 (10 3/4-ounce) can beef broth
  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • noodles of your choice, I used 1/2 a box of fettuccine that I snapped in half


  Turn the instant pot to saute' and quickly brown steak strips on both sides in the olive oil and butter. Do not crowd the IP, as you want them to brown.

  Remove the steak from the IP. Add the shallots slices and mushrooms to the pan drippings. Saute for a few minutes, until the onion is tender. 



Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons flour, cook the flour for a minute or two. Put the steak back into the IP with the onion and mushrooms. Add the mushroom soup and beef broth. Break the fettuccine in half or your choice of noodle and mix in real well, making sure all the noodles are covered in sauce.

 Put the lid on the IP and close the valve. Put the Instant pot to 'Manuel High' and time for 10 minutes and do a "Natural Release" for 10 minutes when the timer goes off. Release the rest of the pressure, turning the valve to release.

Stir up the stroganoff and adjust seasoning to taste, adding salt and pepper and stir in the sour cream. I garnished with parsley, however snipped chives sprinkled over the top would be a tasty addition!

I served with noodles, but, have served on mashed potatoes too. This is also good over flaky buttered biscuits.

Instant Pot Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread


When the crisp Fall air descends upon us and the Autumnal days of September make their grand entrance, so does my loaf pans and pumpkin spices. The fireplace is burning and the pups are huddled in front of it. Moist and delicious with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and drizzled with JJ's delicious Penuche Frosting. And using my favorite new small appliance, my instant pot!

Farmer's Breakfast Casserole



I made this Farmer's Breakfast Casserole the other morning for two of our children and their families, 10 people total! We met our family at a home we rented on the Oregon coast for a long week end. This Farmer's breakfast was so easy and scrumptious! It is perfect for the holiday brunch, a family get together or a brunch for the soccer team! You can do all the preparation the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning or just make it all in the morning, either way, it is perfectly delicious!
