Instant Pot Pepper Steak Risotto is a richly flavorful, hearty dinner dish for the winter months. Hi friends, it is Jennifer from JENRON DESIGNS, today I am sharing a flavorful, hearty dinner dish that is perfect for those cold winter nights, my Instant Pot Pepper Steak Risotto.
Risotto has always been such a delicious treat for us, so imagine my excitement when I discovered I could make it in half the time using my Instant Pot. Now I could make my Instant Pot Pepper Steak Risotto as a quick and easy weeknight dinner, without all the fuss and half the work.
Here is a look at the lineup of my ingredients both fresh and pre-packaged. I will be the first to admit that I really love how the Williams Sonoma Risotto cooks up as oven bake, however, it is just as tasty in the Instant Pot too. Now William Sonoma has created several Instant Pot varieties, but we still love the Wild Mushroom and the Pumpkin over here. Although we do find that you will need to jazz them up with some flavors as I have with this recipe.
Okay to get started, set Instant Pot to the saute’ setting for 15 minutes. Using Spurtles, add 2 tbsp. of olive oil and saute your peppers, onions, and garlic for 6-7 minutes. Hopefully, you can develop a slight char or browning effect on the edges of your peppers, while caramelizing the onions and garlic to create flavor.
Next add in your sirloin steak chunks, that you have coated in the Bloody Mary Steak Seasoning mix, seen below. This is an amazing blend that I highly recommend developing even more flavor in this dish. However, if you can not find this specific mix you can substitute it with a basic steak seasoning of your choice.
Once you have browned up your steak, for approximately 4 minutes, add in your red wine to deglaze the pan, while your Instant Pot is still on the saute setting. Then add in your mushrooms, risotto mix, and beef stock while giving it a quick stir. Place lid on your Instant Pot making sure to seal properly, and set to High-Pressure Manual Cook for 15 minutes.
When your Instant Pot is finished cooking, allow it to vent naturally. This will give the risotto a little extra time to soak up all that extra juice, and rest. I serve it up warm using a slotted spurtle, which fluffs the rice perfectly. Then garnish it with some fresh herbs like flat-leaf parsley or chives and enjoy!
