If your pressure cooker has been gathering dust in your kitchen, then, it is time to take it out and prepare this dish with it! I do have a lot of similar recipes that you can try to cook using the IP like these: Cheeseburger Soup, Refried Beans, and Pumpkin Soup!

What are beef tips?

They are trimmings from the more premium cuts of beef. They are cut into small cubes that are great for stewing or braising. These flaps are very lean which makes them quite tough to cook.

How to make Instant Pot Beef Tips and Gravy

  • Sauté: First, season the meat with salt and pepper, then, heat some oil. Then, use the sauté function of the IP to brown the meat. Add the onions, too. Then, remove everything and set aside on a plate and cover.
  • Add the rest: Add some broth in the pot to deglaze it. Then, add in the rest of the liquids and other seasonings along with the mushrooms.
  • Cook: Set the IP to manual and cook for about 15 minutes. Once done, do a quick release. Adjust the taste if needed.
  • Thicken: To thicken the sauce, add the roux. Prepare it by melting butter and whisking in flour in it. This roux will thicken the sauce of the dish.
  • Serve: Once desired consistency is achieved, garnish with your favorite fresh herb and serve.

What beef cut is best to use?

While stew meat is a good candidate, you can never go wrong with tenderloin or sirloin tip.

What to serve with Beef Tips

Beef, in general, pairs well with potatoes. So, mashed potatoes are almost a given when serving this dish. Or, you can serve it with rice, your favorite pasta, garlic bread, or dinner rolls.

Can you make Instant Pot Beef Tips and Gravy in advance?

Yes! It can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two days. So, you can plan and consider this.

This also makes for a great freezer meal. Store it in individual freezer bags so that thawing and reheating are easy. It can keep well in the freezer for as long as 3 months or even beyond that.

Recipe Tips:

  • Use cream of mushroom soup in place of everything else aside from the cubes.
  • You can also cook the mashed potatoes with the dish at the same time. Just make use of the steam rack, then, mash it when already soft. Then, mix with dairy and seasonings. 
  • Aside from baby Bella, you can use cremini mushrooms.
