I love beef stroganoff. It’s always been one of my dreams to attend a Beef Stroganoff Cook Off but I just haven’t seen any in town.
Until that day comes, I’ve been sticking to Hamburger Helper Beef Stroganoff. With my limited cooking skills, that’s all I’ve been able to do. But with the handy Instant Pot, things are now easier. My girlfriend found our latest Instant Pot recipe thanks to the overwhelming world of Pinterest.
I’ve pinned the recipe to our Pinterest page.
Pressure Cooker Umami Beef Stroganoff:
- 2 pounds well marbled chuck roast
- 1/2 pound white button mushrooms , sliced
- 1 large onions , sliced
- 3 cloves garlic , sliced
- ½ cup dry white wine
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon paprika , separated to ½ tsp (Optional)
- Salt & black pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 cup sour cream or greek yogurt , room temperature
CHICKEN STOCK MIXTURE
- ¾ cup unsalted chicken stock
- 1 tablespoon light soy sauce (not low sodium soy sauce)
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons cold water
- 360 grams dry egg noodles, cooked 10 minutes in lightly salted water
- Finely chopped parsley or chives
Prep: Heat up your Instant Pot (press Sauté button, then Adjust button to Sauté More function).
Make Paprika Salt Mixture: Combine ½ tsp paprika, 4 pinches of coarse kosher salt, and black pepper in a small mixing bowl.
Brown Chuck Steak: Season one side of the chuck steak with Paprika Salt Mixture. Add 1 tbsp olive oil in Instant Pot. Ensure to coat the oil over whole bottom of the pot. Carefully place the seasoned side of chuck steak in pressure cooker. Generously season the other side with Salt Mixture, then brown for 7 mins on each side without constant flipping. Remove and set aside on a chopping board.
Make Chicken Stock Mixture: While chuck steak is browning in pressure cooker, mix 1 tbsp light soy sauce, 1 tbsp fish sauce, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tbsp dijon mustard, and ¾ cup unsalted chicken stock in a glass measuring cup.
Sauté Mushroom: Saute ½ lb sliced white button mushrooms until slightly crisped and browned (roughly 8 minutes). The mushrooms will begin to release their moisture in roughly 3 minutes. Use the moisture to deglaze the bottom of the pot by scrubbing the flavorful brown bits with a wooden spoon.
Sauté Onions & Garlic: Add in onion slices, then saute for another 2 minutes. Add in sliced garlic and saute until fragrant (~30 seconds).
Deglaze: Pour in ½ cup dry white wine and completely deglaze bottom of the pot. Allow the wine to reduce for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat briefly to cut the chuck steak.
Cut Chuck Steak: Cut the chuck steak into ⅛ inch thick beef slices. Since chuck roast grains run in different directions, slice it against the grain the best you can. Mix beef slices with 1 tbsp of flour in a large mixing bowl.
Pressure Cook Beef Slices: Stir in ½ tsp paprika and Chicken Stock Mixture from Step 4. Place beef slices + flavorful meat juice in pressure cooker. Ensure all beef are partially submerged in the cooking liquid. Pressure cook at High Pressure for 12 minutes + 12 minutes Natural Release (wait 12 minutes then carefully release remaining pressure).
Cook Dry Egg Noodles: While Instant Pot is cooking, heat a large saucepan filled with lightly salted water and bring it to a boil. In a small mixing bowl, place 1 cup sour cream from the fridge and bring it to room temperature. When Instant Pot is natural releasing, place dry egg noodles in boiling water and cook for about 9 – 13 minutes (see package’s direction for a more accurate cooking time).
Temper & Add Sour Cream: Press Cancel Button, then Sauté Button to heat up the sauce in the pot. Slowly mix 1 cup of Sauce Mixture into the sour cream (at room temperature) to temper it. Slowly pour sour cream mixture in Instant Pot while mixing.
Thicken Sauce: In a small mixing bowl, mix cornstarch with water and mix it in one third at a time until desired thickness. Taste and adjust the seasoning with kosher salt and black pepper if necessary.
Serve: In a serving bowl, layer beef slices on top of cooked egg noodles. Drizzle with the yummy sauce and garnish with finely chopped parsley or chives.
Total Time: 1 hr 15 min
This was another easy recipe to knock out and one hundred times better than the Hamburger Helper version I’ve been accustomed to. I really loved this recipe and would do this one (or slightly assist in doing this one) again in the near future.
