Beef Tips (Pressure Cooker)



It’s no secret that I love using my pressure cooker, it is a great way to prepare meals and still have time to do whatever else you need to do.  Being as we work full time and I don’t always want to spend hours in the kitchen.  It is nice to have this handy little gadget to make life that much easier for me and my family.

This is a fantastic comfort food, and if you make enough of it, tastes even better a few days later. I can testify to this as I was digging into it several days after I made it.

2 pounds stew beef
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup mushroom sliced
32 oz beef broth
2 onions – sliced (I used red and white)
2 tablespoons garlic – minced

Salt and pepper to taste

3 tablespoons corn starch and ½ cup water. Mixed together and set aside

Egg noodles cooked according to the package directions.

Set pressure cooker to brown. Heat butter and add meat.


Turn meat until browned on all sides.
Remove the meat from the pot and add the onions


Cook the onions until they are translucent, add the garlic and mushrooms


Cook for about 3 minutes then add the beef back to the pot


Add the beef stock and salt and pepper. Cover and set to 80 pressure for thirty minutes.


(It will be done but I like my meat to fall apart like butter so I cooked it an additional 30 minutes)

While still hot, add the slurry and stir. The liquid should start thickening, and you will have great gravy.

Serve over noodles and watch it all disappear!



I hope you like this post, and as always I can be reached at


Bon appétit

    Looks great – I have an electric cooker so I assume I should cut the cooking times a bit? I usually add just a bit of red wine and worchesire sauce as well. I’m making this today.


    1. I hope it turns out great. Let me know how it goes. L

    You said to set it for 80 pressure and cook 30 min? is that 80lbs? pressure? I dont think so? My cooker is high and low pressure. Like 8lb and 15lb pressure? Im new to pressure cooking so maybe im missing something. Please help, this looks great and I want to try it.
