Pressure Cooker: Beef Tips with Mushrooms and Onions
Looking for a simple to the dinner table meal? Try Beef Tips with Mushrooms and Onions in the pressure cooker for a simple, yet delicious dish.
It’s no secret that I love using my pressure cookers, between my Instant Pots and my Pressure Cooker XL, I can have dinner on the table in no time! I will admit that I have become a little more lax than I should with meal planning because being able to grab from the freezer and have the meat done in less than an hour has spoiled me!
This is one of our favorite comfort meals. Not only is it delicious, it makes a great dish to whip up for a friend in need or to carry to a pot luck gathering.
2 pounds stew beef
2 tablespoons oil
1 box fresh mushrooms – sliced (or you can use 2 cans of mushrooms)
2 cans beef gravy (for gluten free, I love this beef gravy by McCormick)
2 onions – sliced
2 tablespoons garlic – minced (fresh or jarred)
Set pressure cooker to brown or saute depending on your model of pressure cooker
While waiting on the pressure cooker to heat, season the meat with salt and pepper
Once pressure cooker is hot, add oil and the meat and onions
Allow the meet to cook until brown (keep turning the meat to brown on all sides) and the onions are soft
Add mushrooms, gravy, and garlic – mix well (add cup of water if more gravy is desired)
Lock lid in place and set venting knob to closed
Press cancel (or off depending on your brand of pressure cooker) to turn off saute mode
Press manual (or pressure cook depending on your brand of pressure cooker) and set cook time to 20 minutes
Once cooking is complete, allow to natural release for 10 minutes before moving venting button to open and releasing any remaining pressure
Stir well and serve
Great served over rice or noodles (these are our favorite gluten-free noodles)
Roasted root vegetables are also wonderful with this dish. They can be served as a side or mixed in before serving.

I love this recipe. Do you have any recipes for single people? I got an instant pot for Christmas and I am dying to try it myself for just me. I cooked a meal for my fiancee’s family and my Mom.
Paula Pennachio says
This is the most recipes I’ve seen I live that. They look awesome
I loved this recipe. Used PAM spray instead of oil and it worked just fine. My husband and I added leftover balsamic roasted broccoli to the leftovers and it was fantastic. Thanks so much!
ellen beck says
I make something quite close to this. I will sometimes add the onions sometimes not. I love to use Vidalias if we have them.
I have an Instant Pot pressure cooker. I know I’ll have to set it to sealing. Will the time change? Also if I wanted to add the noodles right into my cooker, how much additional liquid would I need to add?
If you want to add noodles, prepare the other items. Then quick release and add the noodles and 2 cups of water. Seal, close vent and cook for 8 minutes. That is the best time that I have found for adding pasta.
Can I use brown gravy packets? I can’t find the canned beef gravy.
Sherryl Wilson says
Yes you can use the packets. I mix them with a cup of water before adding to cooker.
Emily Endrizzi says
We don’t have a pressure cooker, but this looks amazing. If we get one I would definitely like to try this!
Judy maharrey says
This does sound delicious. All except the mushroom soup, I have never liked mushrooms!
Traci U says
Looks like i’m gonna have to invest in a pressure cooker because this looks and sounds too good not to try.
I should get a pressure cooker. I always forget to pull something for dinner. This recipe looks delicious. And, it’s easy to make.Without the pressure cooker, I’m not sure how long to cook it. Anyways, this would be good served open faced on a piece of bread, over mashed potato.
John House says
Love pressure cookers – my mom used to use one all the time. Glad to see they are making a comeback (did they ever go away). Gotta try this recipe (pinned for the wife).
Carolyn Massey says
I just got a pressure cooker. Had one for years and bit the dust. I am going to try this recipe, looks so yummy and know the meat will be tender.
Katherine Riley says
Our best friends just got an electric pressure cooker, I will have to get the ingredients for this for them to makes so we can be invited over for dinner!!!!
I come raised from a single-parent family, where the other half (my father) was suppose to pay child support but never did… It is for this reason my mother had to watch what she spent what little income was earned on my sister, her and myself. The item that belongs cooking in almost everyone’s kitchen should be that of mushrooms; they go great with almost any meat dish prepared whether it’s for everyday, holiday or special event. And this is a recipe to which I intend many of my friends & family will enjoy eating so it’s been shared! I couldnt imagine a greater treat for tonight’s dinner!
laurie nykaza says
This looks like such a good recipe always looking for something new to make the family they love beef.
Trish F says
Wow, amazing what little time it takes to cook in a pressure cooker. I don’t have one but have been conteplating getting one. I remember my mom having one when I was little. The recipe sounds delicious and I bet I could use it in my slow cooker, but then of course it will take hours to cook. Thanks for sharing.

Karen Beckett says
I have never tried cooking in a pressure cooker. Your recipe looks & sounds delicious
Soha MOlina says
This looks great. I should get a pressure cooker.
Carolyn Massey says
I just bought a pressure cooker, had one for years but gave out. Usually stew beef is tough but cooking it in a pressure cooker makes it so tender. This recipe looks so good I’m going to try it. Thanks.
Nothing beats the tenderness of a Pressure Cooker meal! This recipes looks like a winner…would love to have a 3 in 1 Fagor Multi Cooker!
Sandy Cain says
Wow, this looks easy enough. And mushroom & onions? They are the staples of my life! LOL, I’ve eaten pineapple with mushrooms & onions. They go with anything. I’m hooked on this recipe!
dawn Wright says
Looks very good definitely going to try!
Vicki Hale says
I love things fixed in a pressure cooker, so tender and fast. Thanks
This looks so filling for a winters evening! I have never used a pressure cooker before so I will save this for when I get one.
I don’t even have a pressure cooker! I remember my Mom making essentially the same dinner using a pot on the stove–I loved that dinner. Maybe, since I do not own a pressure cooker-I will make this for myself in a much smaller portion size in a big pot–thank you for reminding me of this delicious dish!
