Beef tips take hours of slow cooking to get tender so I decided to put my multi-functional pressure cooker to the test. The result was the most tender beef tips I've ever had and done in just over an hour. Serve over rice, egg noodles, or mashed potatoes.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place beef tips in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add flour and stir to coat.

  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Add oil and let it get hot. Add beef tips and saute until browned, about 3 minutes; transfer to a bowl. Add onion and mushrooms and saute for 1 minute. Add broth, wine, and Worcestershire sauce; cook for 1 minute while scraping off the brown bits with a wooden spoon.

  • Return beef tips to the pot and stir until everything is evenly combined. Pour condensed soup over top; do not stir.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 25 minutes. Allow 10 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Let sit until gravy has thickened, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For a thicker gravy, mix 1/4 cup cold water with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Stir in the pot for the final 10 minutes of resting.
