Easy Way to Cook Beef Tips!

  • The Instant Pot makes beef tips cooked in gravy taste like they’ve been simmering all day!
  • Serve over potatoes, egg noodles, or rice for an even heartier dish! Perfect for when all the gang’s over to watch the big game!

Ingredients & Variations

BEEF: Affordable chuck roast, sirloin steak, stew meat, and even tri-tip cubes cook up juicy and tender in the Instant Pot! Even frozen cubes of meat will cook perfectly without having to thaw them!

GRAVY: Beef broth and a can of condensed French onion soup make for a densely flavored gravy. Potatoes and carrots can be added to the onions and mushrooms for a more stew-like dish and aromatics like thyme, oregano, or even a package of Italian seasoning mix can be mixed or matched as desired.

How to Make Instant Pot Beef Tips

  1. Saute the seasoned meat in small batches (as per the recipe below).
  2. Remove and scrape the bits from the bottom of the Instant Pot with beef stock.
  3. Return the beef to the Instant Pot and add the remaining ingredients except for corn starch.
  4. Cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.
  5. Make a cornstarch slurry and whisk into the broth until the gravy reaches desired thickness.
  6. Discard bay leaf before serving.

Instant Pot Tips & Tricks

  • Always scrape the bits from the bottom of the Instant Pot. This process is called ‘deglazing’ and the bits get reincorporated into the gravy adding a boost of flavor.
  • You may not use all of the cornstarch slurry so feel free to dispose of what you don’t need.
  • Cut pieces of beef into uniform, bite-sized pieces so they cook evenly.

Leftovers?

Keep leftover beef tips and gravy in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave, stovetop, or instant pot, as desired. Freeze leftovers in zippered bags and use within 4 weeks.
