Easy Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff

  • When there’s a chill in the air, it’s time to make a classic beef stroganoff.
  • Comforting, filling, and so easy to make in the Instant Pot, beef stroganoff is one of the best recipes for getting a hearty, delicious dinner on the table in minutes!

Ingredients & Variations

BEEF: Any chunks of beef stew meat will work, even the more economical, tougher cuts because pressure cooking in the sauce will tenderize the meat. But if stew meat isn’t in the kitchen, ground hamburger, and even a bag of frozen meatballs will be just as good!

SAUCE: The savory sauce is made with a little broth and some sour cream and seasonings. In a pinch, use a can of Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup along with the broth.

MUSHROOMS: Cleaned and ready to use, sliced mushrooms are a serious kitchen timesaver!

6 qt Instant Pot


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 pounds beef stew meat sliced into bite sized pieces
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 ½ cups beef broth
  • 3 cups fresh mushrooms sliced
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 16 ounces package of egg noodles cooked
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch optional


  • In a large freezer bag or bowl, toss together flour, salt & pepper, and stew meat until evenly coated. Remove the beef, shaking off any excess flour.
  • Set the Instant Pot to Sauté setting and add butter. Add beef in batches and cook for 3-5 minutes or until beef is browned on each side.
  • Add onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes or until slightly softened. Add the beef broth and use a spatula to scrape any brown bits off of the bottom of the pan.
  • Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, and Dijon. Layer mushrooms on top.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot. Select the "Meat/Stew" setting on the Instant Pot and set the timer for 35 minutes. Make sure the pressure release valve is in the sealing position.
  • When done, quick release the pressure valve, and open up the lid carefully.
  • To thicken the sauce further, combine 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water. Turn the Instant Pot onto saute. Once simmering, drizzle the cornstarch mixture a bit at time to reach desired consistency. You may not need all of it.
  • When the sauce is the desired thickness, turn off heat and stir in sour cream. Add salt & pepper to taste
  • Serve over prepared noodles or potatoes.


Beef stroganoff will last in the refrigerator for 3 days. 
Ensure the heat is off before adding the sour cream. If it is simmered, it can curdle.
