My grandma would make this beef stroganoff often with leftover beef roast from her traditional Sunday roast and potatoes dinner. So if you have leftover steak this meal would be perfect for that! However if you are making from scratch, and fresh beef you can make it on the stove-top or in a pressure cooker!


Pressure Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Why would you want to use your pressure cooker for beef stroganoff? Well, beef is tricky- its hard to know the best cut when buying. It’s hard to make perfect tender beef on the stovetop (especially if the cut of beef was not so great) So to cut out all those variables and make the most perfect finished beef bites- take it to the pressure cooker. This is the one I currently own, 6-n-1 Instapot.

Where you are buying your beef choose a nice thick steak, or roast. Cut it into thick bite size pieces.

You’ll flour the beef (to create a thickening agent) and sear (to seal in all the juices and create a nice crust). Then you’ll cook it for only 15 minutes! I always let my pressure cooker natural release when cooking meat to ensure tender juicy results.

After the pressure cooker is finished add some sour cream and thicken it up to a beautiful gravy! Serve over egg noodles, homemade noodles, dumplings or even rice!

One last tip that you cannot skimp on. The secret ingredient to make this beef stroganoff legit is to add the red wine vinegar. This is what makes this dish AMAZING. If you forget to grab some at the store you can sub it with apple cider or white wine. The vinegar adds a whole different dimension to the sauce.
