Beef Tips with Mushroom Gravy is a fabulous dinner full of beef & mushroom flavor with the savory hint of red wine. Your family will love this Instant Pot dinner served over rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes. Served with Low Carb noodles, or zucchini noodles for a delicious Keto Diet Dinner. As a busy mom you will love that you do not have to stand over the stove, but spend time with your kids after a long day of work.
The Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooking appliance makes any dinner quick & Easy. The Instant Pot is becoming my go-to appliance for every dinner recipes as I try to convert all our favorites over to pressure cooking.
Jim & I had a romantic dinner for two at the Edison restaurant in Disney Springs on our last vacation. On the menu was a signature dish of Beef Tips over Mashed Potatoes. The dish was rich and savory with a hint of red wine.
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 take you to wait for that “not so fast” and not so healthy food.
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)
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 convenience 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.
My last suggestion for making a week-night dinner quicker is on Sunday, cook up a large amount of 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 and it tasted just as delicious.
Healthy eating with whole fresh ingredients is my goal for your family’s dinner. But I want you to have as much time in the evening to spend with your family relax or work on a project that you have been dreaming of. Using time tested recipes with modern appliances allows you to have the meals you crave without spending hours in the kitchen.Print
