Instant Pot Beef Tips

This is a wonderful recipe from Simply Happy Foodie. I'm not one for cooking beef as it's own dish; as it's expensive and I don't usually eat a lot of cow. But when I do I make sure to buy good beef. This was perfection, tender, and great reheated.


Seasoning Rub

  • 3 Tbsp Flour
  • 2 tsp Steak Seasoning
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper

To Brown the Beef

  • 2 lbs Beef Sirloin Roast, cut in 2" cubes
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil


  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 lg cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup Red Wine (or use beef broth)
  • 1 tsp Beef Bouillon
  • 1 (10.5) oz can Beef Consommé
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp Thyme Leaves (not ground)


Make the Seasoning Rub

  1. In a gallon sized baggie, mix together the seasoning ingredients. Set aside.

Brown the Meat

  1. Turn on the pot's Sauté setting (high temperature).

  2. Cut the roast into 2 inch cubes and put them into the baggie with the seasoning mixture. Shake the baggie to coat all of the meat with the seasoning.

  3. When the pot is hot, add the oil. Then add half of the steak cubes in one layer. Brown both sides, but don't cook through, and remove to a plate. Repeat with the second half of the meat.

Make the Gravy

  1. Add the butter and onion to the pot. Stir and scrape the bottom of the pot, getting up all of the browned bits.

  2. Add the garlic, stir. Cook about 20 seconds, then add the red wine.

  3. Add the bouillon, consommé, Worcestershire sauce, and thyme leaves. Mix well to dissolve the bouillon.

  4. Cancel the Sauté setting.
