How to Serve Instant Pot Beef Tips with Mushroom Gravy

  • Our family favorite is with mashed potatoes. For an easy dinner I use the Bob Evans Original Mashed Potatoes (Refrigerated Dinner Sides). Easy to heat in the microwave. But I would agree that homemade is the best but how has the time on a busy weeknight dinner.
  • Rice is also a perfect side if you are on a gluten free diet.
  • Zucchini noodles, or low carb noodles are a good option for a keto diet.

With the “Fairy Godmother for the working woman” (my Instant Pot) I put a few ideas together and I came up with a very similar dinner made quick & hands-free. After a long day working outside or inside the home, the last thing you want to do is take an hour to make dinner. But as modern moms, we want to serve our families healthy homemade foods. 

With a few good Instant Pot recipes, you can skip the fast-food line and have dinner cooking in the same amount of time it takes you to wait for that “not so fast” and not so healthy food.

Quick Tips To Make Beef Tips with Mushroom Gravy

  • One of the ways to make this dinner quick and easy is to add a rich beef taste with convenient ingredients. Using a gravy mix and two different soup broths add this rich flavor without cooking a dish all day long.   Durkee Mushroom Gravy Mix can be found in any food store. (The link will show you what the package looks like but you only need one, not a whole case)

  • Another way to make Beef Tips with Mushroom Gravy dinner faster is to have your meat already cut up into bite-size pieces in the freezer so your only chopping is the onions and the mushrooms.
  • We purchase all of your meats at Costco, but as you know all of their packages are large, that is how you save, as you get more for your money. One of the ways to make this dish faster on a work night is to have the meat already cut and in the freezer. I purchased a large package of Beef Top Sirloin and cut up the whole package at once. Half of the meat I used for this recipe and the other half I put in a freezer bag in my freezer to use another night.
  • One of the best features of using pressure cooking and the Instant Pot is that you can use frozen and fresh meat just the same. The pressure cooker has to come up to pressure for the cooking to start.  If your meat is frozen you can add it frozen to the recipe after you saute the onions and mushrooms(you will skip the browning step). It will take the Instant Pot longer to come to pressure but you are free to spend time with the kids, dinner just takes a little longer to cook.
  • I loaded the recipe up with more vegetables and was able to get rich gravy using a mushroom gravy packet. I also made Tofu Shirataki Spaghetti noodles to keep the recipe low carb.  Now that we are home it is time to watch what we eat. (next time I make the recipe I will make mashed potatoes as it was so good)

  • My last suggestion for making a week-night dinner quicker is to cook a large meal on Sunday. Cook up a large amount of mashed potatoes, rice or pasta, and have in the refrigerator dinners. I usually only keep cooked food in my refrigerator for 3 days, but with a family, it will be long gone by then.
  • I have also made this recipe with frozen beef tips and added it to the Instant Pot without defrosting and without browning the meat. The recipe turned out delicious even with these modifications.

  1. This was amazing! Made it tonight with a couple revisions – No wine, and no onions (allergic). Replaced the french onion soup with another can of beef consomme, and used regular beef gravy mix. Served it over mashed potatoes, and toasted ciabatta bread. The beef was so tender, and the depth and richness of the gravy was perfect. This is one we will repeat often!

    1. I love how you made this your own. That is what I love about cooking you can be as creative as you want.

  2. Well, this is another reason that I should probably go out and buy an Instant Pot! It sounds so wonderful, and of course easy to make with an IP! Maybe somebody will buy me one for my birthday!! 🙂 . Thanks fo sharing this with us at Fiesta Friday this week!

  3. That looks so good, Susan. I’m collecting IP recipes right now. I bought my IP more than a year ago, and I can count on the fingers of one hand how many times I’ve used it. Thanks for sharing with #fiestafriday!

  4. Looks yummy, Sue! I have an Instant Pot, but I haven’t used it in a while. I’ll have to take it out to try this! Thanks for sharing.

  5. This looks so good and I know my husband would love it. I have to get an instant Pot though.
