Beef Tips:

  • 2 pounds stew meat cubed
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 cups baby Bella Mushrooms cleaned and sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 3 cups low sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups beef broth more if needed
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Select Saute on the Instant Pot and adjust to Hot.
  • Season the beef cubes with salt and pepper.
  • Add two tablespoons of oil to the heated IP, once shimmering add beef in one layer and brown on all sides, refrain from stirring the meat, except when needed to turn the beef for even browning. You will have to do this in batches.
  • Once browned, remove the beef to a plate and cover with foil.
  • Deglaze the pot with 1/4 cup of red wine, scraping well the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to remove the burnt bits of beef. Transfer the liquid to a cup and set aside.
  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the inner pot and heat until shimmering, then add diced onion. Cook until onion is soft and slightly begins to brown, at that point add the sliced mushrooms. Saute until mushrooms are tender, for about 10 minutes.
  • Add minced garlic, dried thyme, and rosemary, and cook 1 minute longer.
  • Add the liquid from deglazing the pot and stir to combine.
  • Add back the browned beef, the Worcestershire sauce, Soy sauce, and the beef broth.
  • Cancel Saute function. Cover and lock the lid and point the valve to seal.
  • Pressure cook on high for 20 minutes. Followed by a 15 minutes Natural Pressure Release. Release manually the remaining pressure.
  • Open the lid.

Prepare the Gravy:

  • Once done, using a slotted spoon remove the beef and veggies into another bowl, cover to keep it warm.
  • Select Saute on Medium, in a bowl, combine the butter and flour until you can form a ball. Add the butter/flour ball to the pot. Stir to combine.
  • If the gravy needs more liquid, use the 2 cups of liquid beef broth as needed. Continue to whisk as the liquid is added.
  • Cook the gravy on medium-low heat until it begins to thicken, then add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Return the beef and mushrooms mixture to the pot and combine it with the gravy.


  • Serve beef tips and gravy over mashed potatoes or egg noodles.
