Beef stroganoff cooked in a pressure cooker surely isn’t the easiest thing. Hence when it comes to the noodles it’s pretty easy for them to come out over cooked or under cooked. Therefore, I worked with this dish several times in order to have the right method.

Tips and Tricks

First, I added the beef to the instant pot and used the saute mode to sear the meat. Second, I chop all of the mushrooms and onions and place them in the pot to cook for just a few minutes with the meat.

Additionally, I add the remain ingredients except the noodles, sour cream, and cornstarch. Lastly, I cook it for 20 minutes so the beef for the stroganoff is perfectly tender.

Once the pot is finished counting I release the pressure. Additionally, I add in the noodles and make sure that the noodles are covered well. Place the lid back on the instant pot and set to 3 minutes high pressure. After it is done counting I release the pressure. Lastly, I stir in the sour cream and cornstarch with water to help thicken.

Above all, I love how the sauce comes out nice and thick around the pasta. Hence, the first couple of times I made this dish the noodles were way over cooked. However, I continued to reduce the time till the noodles came out with the right texture. We didn’t want them too hard nor too soft.

The time it takes for the pot to come back to pressure and cook the egg noodles for 3 minutes is just perfect. However, remember that egg noodles cook fast compared to something like a spaghetti noodle.

Spaghetti noodles definitely need more time. Additionally, if your cooking with thin spaghetti the time would also need adjusting. Moreover, we hope you enjoy this dish.
