Tips and Tricks for Instant Pot Sirloin Roast Beef w/ Mushroom Sauce
Making this recipe is Eazy Peazy but here are a few helpful tips and tricks so your process goes well and you get the best results.
- Don’t Be Hasty: Resist the temptation to do a quick release once the Instant Pot signals it is done. You need that extra slow release time to finish the dish.
- Too Much Salt: I like to use unsalted butter opposed to salted butter because then you have more control of the amount of salt in a dish. However, if you only have salted butter on hand, no biggie. Just be mindful of the added salt and taste before adding more. You can always add more salt to a dish, but you can’t take it out.
- Cutting Meat: Make sure you cut your meat against the grain. Trust me, it makes a difference. It makes the meat more tender and easy to chew because you have already done some of the work for breaking down the meat’s muscle fibers, opposed to leaving more work for you when you chew the meat.
- Against the Grain: Identify the grain of the meat by looking for lines on your meat. These are the muscle fibers referred to in tip three.
- Measuring: If you aren’t mincing the garlic cloves yourself and already have a jar of minced garlic, the amount is one garlic clove equals ½ tsp of minced garlic. Therefore for this recipe you will need 1 ½ tsps of minced garlic.
Make Ahead and Storage
How to make this recipe ahead of time:
I think for this recipe, fresh is especially best. However, you can make it a couple days ahead of time.
- Follow the recipe like normal, with the exception of putting the sauce on top of the meat. Don’t do this last step if you are not eating the dish immediately.
- Let meat and sauce cool completely. Then transfer sauce and meat into separate air-tight containers and put them in the refrigerator.
- When ready to eat, heat meat in a microwave safe dish, starting with a few minutes and then checking meat with every additional minute. Once almost heated through, add sauce and finish heating.
If you want to make it ahead, go for it. Just know the meat is not going to be as good of quality once reheated.
