This beef stroganoff recipe is the ultimate in flavor, with no cream of anything soup. By cooking it in the instant pot, pressure cooker, you get tender and flavorful beef, and a sauce that is just infused with so much amazing flavor you will want to lick the pan clean.
One thing to keep in mind is I did not cook the noodles in the Instant Pot with the beef stroganoff sauce. The reason is that I wanted the noodles to be perfectly al dente, and haven’t quite managed that in the IP yet. Also, sometimes I like to serve this stroganoff over rice, or zucchini noodles, etc. So, by having the recipe only include the delicious sauce, I have the option of serving it over whatever I want!
The Instant Pot Pressure Cooker
The Instant Pot Pressure Cooker can be a little intimidating when you first start using it, but don’t worry, I am going to share all the tips and tricks to get this recipe to turn out perfect every single time:
- Make sure you get olive oil across the whole bottom of the pot when sautéing. Make sure your roast gets a nice sear, and that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. So spread that oil around.
- Deglaze your pan after searing the roast. This is a fancy way of saying scrape off any of the brown bits and burnt on stuff off the bottom. This is really important to do or your IP may read “burn” and never come to pressure. I have found that a little beef broth is all it takes, with a wooden spoon to scrape. It is easy peasy. Taking the step to deglaze the pan will not only add awesome flavor to your beef stroganoff, but it will also make the recipe work right.
- Thicken your sauce by putting it back on the “saute” function at the end. Because ingredients vary, you may need to give it more or less time to thicken. I have made and remade this recipe many times. Sometimes I have to thicken the sauce with a little corn starch slurry at the end, and sometimes I don’t. It kind of depends on how juicy my roast is, as well as my other ingredients. So keep that in mind, and if it is not as thick as you want, use a little corn starch to help.

As you can see, the sauce turns out nice and creamy, and then I just add some fresh parsley for garnish, and if I am serving it over noodles, I will sometimes stir them right in, or sometimes serve it over top. I like to mix things up! I’m fun like that.
For this recipe I used a 6 Quart Lux Instant Pot, but I know the recipe works well in the DUO as well. I have not tried it in a larger or smaller Instant Pot, so I am not sure how to best adjust timing, etc. for them. Please comment if you make it in another Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker and let others know how it turned out or what adjustments you made. Thanks!
If you love beef stroganoff you will love this crock pot version, which happens to be one of the most popular recipes on my site. However, it does use cream of mushroom soup. You might also like this quick and easy Stroganoff served over Mushroom Ravioli. Yum!
