  • 2 pounds - stew meat (lean)
  • 1 cups - sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3 teaspoons - minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons - butter
  • 2 tablespoons - flour
  • 2 cups - beef broth
  • 4 tablespoons - Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cups - sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons - corn starch, optional, with cold water, for thickening
  • - cooked potatoes, rice, gnocchi, or noodles, for serving with
  • Directions:

    Set Instant Pot pressure cooker to Saute mode. Add butter, garlic and mushrooms. Once butter is completely melted, sprinkle in the flour and stir (coating the mushrooms).

    Add the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce and stew meat. Cover, turn steam valve to "sealed" position and set Instant Pot to Pressure Cook setting (or Manual setting) for 30 minutes. (It will take longer than this - allowing for time to come to pressure first).

    Meanwhile, cook potatoes, rice, gnocchi, or pasta for serving with, as desired.

    When the Instant Pot finishes pressure cooking, do a quick release of the pressure by turning the valve to "Venting" position and then remove the lid after the float valve drops.

    (If you want to cook the noodles in the stroganoff sauce, at this point, stir in 10 ounces of egg noodles and set to Pressure Cook for 3 minutes. Then do another quick release after it finishes).

    Stir in sour cream. Then taste and add salt and pepper as needed. For a thicker sauce (if desired), in a separate bowl mix together the corn starch with 1/4 cup broth or cold water, and then stir that into the stroganoff. Set Instant Pot to Soup setting and allow sauce to thicken for a few minutes.

    Serve over potatoes, gnocchi, rice, or noodles, as desired.
