I love beef stroganoff. I grew up eating it once a year on my sister’s birthday and then (luckily) married into a family that makes it from scratch for special occasions. My in-law’s beef stroganoff is AMAZING and I based this instant pot recipe off of their recipe. 

Some of my other favorite comfort food recipes are Spicy Meatloaf, Instant Pot Italian Beef, and these super creamy instant pot mashed potatoes.

The perfect weeknight 30-minute meal

Instant pot beef stroganoff is made with steak cut into thin strips and seared before cooking in a delicious sauce of beef broth, spices, and a little bit of wine. The egg noodles cook right on top and it cooks for – get this – just 4 minutes on high pressure!

After you pressure cook your stroganoff, simply mix in a good portion of sour cream and serve! It takes the classic stroganoff (that takes my extended family hours to prepare) to an easy weeknight meal! Bonus points: all three of my kids LOVED this meal!

How do you thicken stroganoff sauce?

There are two methods I have successfully used to thicken a thing stroganoff sauce. 

  1. My preferred method: Add more sour cream! The best way to thicken a thin sauce is adding more sour cream. If you have extra on hand, try that before adding a cornstarch slurry. Keep in mind that, either way, your sauce should continue to thicken a bit as it cools. So don’t fret too much if the sauce seems thin.
  2. Cornstarch slurry: After you cook your stroganoff, leave it in the instant pot. Whisk together a mixture of 1/4 cup cold water and 1 tablespoon cornstarch. Press the sauté button on your instant pot and bring the sauce to a boil. Whisk in the cornstarch slurry and let it cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and the sauce should thicken.
