INSTANT POT BEEF STROGANOFF PASTA RECIPE TIPS:
- Use quality meat, preferably use organic beef for this meal. Stew meat works best for this recipe.
- Also, look for fresh meat that has a bright color, and about 15-20% fat content. Due to higher fat content, the meat gets great flavor and tenderness. Cut the meat into smaller cubed sizes.
- Browning the beef is essential, it will lock in the flavor and the beef juices and also elevate the meat flavor.
- You don’t have to pre-cook the egg noodles for this recipe. Add the uncooked noodles to the pot and 5 minutes on HP will give you normally cooked pasta, 4 minutes, a bit more on the al-dente side.
- In addition, egg noodles are customary in beef stroganoff. However, feel free to use other short pasta shapes if you do not have egg noodles available.
- For a spicier kick, add more red pepper flakes.
