Pressure Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Pressure Cooker Beef Stroganoff

My head is still spinning.

The holidays are all..Rush Rush Rush..

And then, BAM, it’s over in a second.

Hope you got some good swag for Christmas.

My Mom rocks cause she got me one of those new-fangled electric pressure cookers.

This one to be exact.

Fancy, huh?

I was torn between and electric one and a stove top one.

Way back in the day, I reviewed a stove top pressure cooker, and I just couldn’t get the thing to cook right.

Everything burned.

Operator error? Whatever.

So I asked for an electric one to be on the safe side.

I had no clue where to start.

I read that you could pretty much cook whatever you normally would in a slow cooker in a pressure cooker, you just needed to reduce the time and liquid.

Beef Stroganoff was a safe bet.

Annnnnddddd, It turned out Deeeee-licious!

Tasted like it had been cooking for hours..the meat just melted in the mouth.

Oh, and my kids liked it. So you know it’s that good.

I think I am going to love love love my New Pressure Cooker.

Pressure Cooker Beef Stroganoff. Tastes like it's been cooking for hours!
  • 3½ lbs. Sirloin Tip Roast, trimmed of tough tissue and cubed
  • 2 + Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ¾ cup Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Course Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • ½ teaspoon Dried Rosemary
  • ⅛ teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 large Onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1¾ cup Beef Stock
  • ¼ cup Red Wine
  • 8 oz. Sour Cream
  • 12 oz. Medium Size Egg Noodles, cooked to package directions
  1. In a gallon sized zip lock bag, mix together the flour,salt, pepper,onion powder,thyme,rosemary and paprika.
  2. Add the cubed beef and toss to coat.
  3. Set the pressure cooker to browning.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons oil to pressure cooker.
  5. Working in small batches, taking care not to over crowd the pot, brown the meat on all sides. (took me 4 batches).
  6. Remove the beef to a plate.
  7. Add the onions to the pressure cooker, adding more oil if needed and cook for 5 minutes.
  8. Add the garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute.
  9. Add back the beef and any juices that have accumulated on the plate.
  10. Stir in the beef stock and wine.
  11. Place the lid on and set the cooker to High Pressure for 20 minutes.
  12. After 20 minutes has elapsed, allow the pressure cooker to naturally release the steam. This will take 10-15 minutes.
  13. Carefully remove lid.
  14. Place the sour cream into a small bowl.
  15. Ladle about ¼ cup of the hot juice from the pressure cooker into the sour cream and stir.
  16. Do this several times until the sour cream is warmed.
  17. Stir the warm sour cream into the meat.
  18. Salt and pepper to taste.
  19. Serve over egg noodles.
I used the Cuisinart 6- Quart Electric Pressure Cooker for this recipe. Mushrooms are often used in beef stroganoff, however my family doesn't like them. If you choose to add them, add them before the onions and cook for a few minutes until they start to brown.

    Wow Leslie….I never even knew they had electric pressure cookers. This seems a little less scary!! I’ll be interested to see the meals you make in it. And not a bad price either.

    Happy New Year!! It was great to meet you this year, and I hope our paths cross again!

    I love Beef Stroganoff, my family will not touch it. It’s been over 25 years since I’ve had it. This looks so good. Happy New Year and much success to you in 2013

    I have had my eye on a pressure cooker for a while since usually when I think to start a slow cooker recipe I need to have dinner ready in like 45 minutes! Maybe I should put it on my wish list for next year!

    I love beef stroganoff…I have been going nuts trying to pick a pressure cooker as the old-time ones scare me. I am leaning towards this one as I see Karen uses one of these, but when I watch QVC, they have one that is also a slow cooker..hmmm..Anyway, this recipe looks so delicious! I can’t wait to try it.

    I’ve been using stove top pressure cookers for years. You can cook almost anything in them! I have a great recipe for creme caramel in the pressure cooker too. Who knew you could make dessert in it!

    This sounds really good Leslie. I have an older stovetop pressure cooker but am really considering getting a new one and will probably go with electric. I’ve pinned this recipe to try later 🙂 I miss you girl! Hoping that we can see each other again in Orlando, crossing my fingers that all works out for FBF!
