Beef Tips Instant Pot Recipe

Beef Tips Recipe

I recently discovered this new Beef Tips recipe for my Instant Pot.  It is the best new recipe I have tried in years and I highly recommend this wonderful dinner recipe.  I found the original recipe in my Taste of Home Instant Pot Cookbook, which has several wonderful recipes for the Instant Pot.

I was resistant to make this recipe because of the mushrooms, but after consideration, I decided to try it.  After all, I knew I could eliminate the mushrooms from my own serving.  I am so glad I didn’t let the mushrooms keep me from cooking this delicious meal in my Instant Pot.  We will be making it again soon, and often.

I own the Instant Pot Ultra 10-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker, therefore the following recipe is written using the settings and terms on that specific cooker.  However, I have tried to add general terms too for those of you who own a different Instant Pot.

I did need to alter the original recipe slightly to accommodate my cooker.  Specifically, I noted that my instant pot gets really hot on the ‘saute’ setting and needed more olive oil than the original recipe listed. Plus, the original recipe gives the option to add dry red wine which I did not add.  And, finally, I used 2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce instead of one and a yellow onion, which was not specified.
