Chop and Saute

Start by chopping up the onion. Cut your beef if you didn’t buy it already cut, and have your mince press and garlic cloves ready. I went ahead and cut my mushrooms in half before I started the saute process as well. Using the Instant Pot, saute function, heat your oil, and then add your onions. Once they’re looking translucent, add the beef.

Brown The Sides of The Beef

Season your beef with some salt and pepper. Add the beef. As the sides of the cubes start to brown, add your minced garlic and thyme into the pot. Cook until it’s fragrant. Should only take about 30 seconds. Then add soy sauce and Worchestershire sauce.

just before the onions are translucent, the beef was added. this image shows the beef being browned on the outside edges, though this step is not completed just yet.

Combine All But The Sour Cream

Stir in your chopped mushrooms. Slowly add the flour, stirring constantly to incorporate. Add your chicken broth. You can add more salt at this point if you feel it needs more.

Time for Pressure

Close and lock the lid. Set the timer for 10 minutes on high pressure. When finished, release the pressure carefully (quick-release). Open the cooker lid away from you.

Add your egg noodles and slowly stir them in. Seal the lid again and cook on high pressure for another 5 minutes. This time allow a natural release for 5 minutes before you release the remaining pressure. Safely remove the lid, add your sour cream, and enjoy.

    Why chicken broth with beef? Shouldn’t it be beef broth or does it need the chicken for a totally different flavor?

  2. Nicole says:

    Hello Jo,
    You can use beef broth if you prefer, it will still taste great.
    For me, I have two reasons for using chicken broth: I like the subtle flavor of chicken broth in most things I cook. Especially when they have noodles. And oftentimes beef broth has a saltier flavor.
    Let me know how yours turns out! 😀
