WHAT TO SERVE WITH BEEF STROGANOFF
HOW TO MAKE BEEF STROGANOFF IN THE INSTANT POT
Although this stroganoff recipe is all cooked in one pot, there are several steps, and some of the ingredients are cooked at separate times. Here’s an easy guide to get you going with the pressure cooker recipe.
- Beef: First put the instant pot to its saute setting. Add butter to the base of the pan to grease it. Then add the pieces of stew meat, and season it with salt and pepper. Move the meat around with a wooden spoon to brown it on all sides. This should only take about 6-8 minutes.
- Onions: While still in the saute setting, take the beef out and add in the onions. Cook the onions until they’re translucent.
- Sauce: Add the garlic, mushrooms, flour, and beef to the pressure cooker along with the onions. Stir the ingredients until the flour dissolves. Add the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Whisk them into the rest of the ingredients. Close the lid and seal the valve. Cook for 10 minutes and then quick release the pressure.
- Noodles: Remove the lid and add in the egg noodles. Close the lid again and pressure cook on a 5-minute timer. Do another quick pressure release and open the lid.
- Serve: After the cook time, stir in the sour cream to thicken up the sauce and serve.
VARIATIONS ON INSTANT POT BEEF STROGANOFF
- Noodles: If you don’t have egg noodles you can use other kinds of pasta in your Beef Stroganoff recipe. Penne, fettuccini, bow tie noodles, elbow macaroni, or orecchiette would all work.
- Creamy sauce: You can replace the sour cream in the sauce with Greek yogurt. You can also add other flavors to the liquid sauce ingredients. Mix in dijon mustard, or BBQ sauce with the beef broth for some extra flavor.
- Mushrooms: You can exchange crimini mushrooms in the Instant Pot Stroganoff with portabello mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, or white mushrooms.
- Meat: Instead of tender beef meat, try using simple ground beef in the recipe.
- Seasonings: Another way to experiment with Instant Pot Stroganoff is by adding seasonings and spices like fresh parsley, garlic powder, oregano, onion powder, paprika, or red pepper flakes.
