I’ve been skeptical about the Instant Pot. I know a lot of people either love it or hate it. I find myself somewhere in the middle.

I really enjoy having the Instant Pot, but it has taken some time to get comfortable using it. If you’re like me, then good news! This Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff is a great Instant Pot beginner recipe to use.

If you need additional help with understanding the ins and outs of the Instant Pot, here is a great guide.

Easy Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff

First, plug in the Instant Pot and press the saute button.

Once hot, add the oil to the pot and place the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, and onion into the pot. Brown the meat, breaking it into small pieces as it cooks. When the meat is done cooking remove excess grease from the pot and discard appropriately.

Pro tip: after I remove the excess grease sometimes I’ll add an additional teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, just to give it more flavor!

Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 more minute.

Stir in the flour, cream of mushroom soup, beef broth, water, and egg noodles. Once the ingredients are all combined secure the Instant Pot lid and turn the valve to the sealing position.

Pro tip: You can omit the 1/2 cup of water and use 2 1/2 cups of beef broth. Sometimes it can be a pain to open 2 cans of beef broth and only use a portion of the second can. The water eliminates the need for that.

Cook on Manual Setting or High Pressure Setting for 2 minutes. 

When pressure cooking is complete, do a quick release.

Tip: I like to wear a hot pad glove (or use the end of a wooden spoon) when doing the quick release just in case liquid sprays from the knob. Another option is to turn the knob only half way so that only a small amount of steam is being released.

Carefully remove the Instant Pot lid, stir the mixture and then let cool for a minute before adding the sour cream.

Stir in the sour cream, chopped parsley, and salt & pepper to taste. Serve!
