How to make Italian Beef in the Pressure Cooker

This is a family favorite of ours! It has been a while since we have made it. Considering today was Mother’s day and our sons 16th Birthday my husband was kind enough to cook dinner tonight for us. Bot Jack and I had a request for a little Al’s Italian Beef. Around 10 years ago we had the opportunity to visit the city of Chicago and to date it truly has been one of our best family vacations. We hit every local eatery we could that was either featured on the food network or places were heard were musts.

Be sure your beef has some fat on it. It really adds to the flavor.

Looks like a rainbow of color and flavor.

Pin it, Make it!

How to make Italian Beef in the Pressure Cooker

Pressure Cooker Italian Beef

Servings 6


  • 3 LBS Sirloin Tip Roast
  • 16 OZ Giardinera
  • 1 Whole Yellow Onion Chopped
  • 2 Cups Beef Broth
  • 1 Packet Italian Dressing optional
  • Chopped Roasted Garlic To Taste
  • Salt and Pepper To Taste
  • Thyme To Taste


  • Drain most of the juice from the Giardiniera jar.
    **My husband had everything marinating for about 30 minutes before he added it to the pot**
  • Add a drizzle of vegetable oil on the bottom of your inner pot. Saute sirloin first. Lightly season with salt and pepper and saute your meat on both sides.
  • Add remainder of the mixture into the pressure cooker. Close lid, turn to seal and set on Manual High pressure for 45 minutes. Let natural release.
  • Serve on an Italian crusty roll with side of your choice. Be sure to add the au jus on the roll and even have a little bowl on the side for dipping. Delish. I do not add the Giardiniera to my sandwich. That is optional. I prefer a little horseradish sauce instead. Just a personal preference.
