Fork tender pressure cooker sirloin tips in gravy cooked in a pressure cooker in a fraction of the time it would take to cook in the oven or on the stove.
Here’s another great, time saving recipe that I made in my pressure cooker. It is the same idea as my Three Easy Round Steak Meals post, but made faster and easier by using my new pressure cooker. I usually make it for a Sunday dinner and serve it with mashed potatoes. Then I’ll serve it again with lots of cracked pepper over noodles with sour cream on top, and another night it makes a great beef stew.
I was really impressed with how well the pressure cooker browns the meat. The browning adds so much flavor to the gravy, so don’t skip this step and be sure and brown the meat well. Winco had Sirloin Tip Roasts on sale so I used that, you could substitute another lean beef roast or round steak.
After I’ve served it the first night, I freeze the remainder in 2 cup portions in freezer Ziplocs. I love having easy, homemade meals in the freezer ready to put together an easy meal any night of the week.

Pressure Cooker Sirloin Tips in Gravy
- 5 lb. Sirloin Tip Roast cubed
- 2 - 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 Onion diced
- 2 cups Beef Broth
- ½ cup Flour
- 1 ½ cup Water
- 2 cups cubed round steak in gravy
- 1 can crushed tomatoes in puree
- 2 bay leafs
- 1 T. dried parsley
- 2 large potatoes diced
- 2 carrots diced
- 1 cup uncooked macaroni
- 1 small bag frozen corn
- Sirloin Tips in Gravy
- Add 1 tablespoon oil to the pressure cooker pot, select Browning. When oil is hot, brown the meat in small batches, do not crowd.
- When all the meat is browned, put browned meat, onion and beef broth in pot, cover and lock lid in place.
- Select High Pressure and 15 minutes cook time. (It will take about 15 minutes to pressure up and another 20 minutes for a Natural Pressure release.)
- Mix flour and water to make a slurry to thicken the broth. Add slurry to cooked meat and broth in pressure cooker pot.
- Select Browning and bring to a boil. Boil for a few minutes until broth is thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Heat sirloin tips in gravy, tomatoes, parsley and bay leafs until boiling over medium heat. Add diced potatoes and carrots.
- Simmer until potato is almost tender stirring frequently. (Add water if necessary for desired broth consistency.)
- Add macaroni. When the macaroni is almost done, add frozen corn. Serve when corn is heated through and potatoes and macaroni are tender. Remove bay leafs before serving.

You are making a pressure cooker sound like a very sensible purchase, Barbara. I love the time it cuts off the preparation time of many of our favorite meals. And I know it can do a lot more than what my mother used it for. I think I better look into this.

You’re really making me want a pressure cooker. That meat looks melt in your mouth delicious.
I’m really enjoying your posts about the pressure cooker. I’ve never used a pressure cooker before, so this is all new to me. This beef looks superb served over noodles, on it’s own, or in a stew. Beautiful!
Io non ho una pentola a pressione, ma credo che sia arrivato il momento di provvedere!!!
Il tuo stufato ha un aspetto succulento, mi piace!
Ciao a presto
Congrats on the new pressure cooker! What a treat:)
That looks good! A great meal that is comforting and very enjoyable.
Yum! This looks delish. I think a pressure cooker maybe the only gadget I don’t have in my kitchen. Might be time to get one!
I am SO glad you are posting these pressure cookers recipes! I just bought one and haven’t a clue as to how to use it- I’m a little nervous too! But these are exactly the types if recipes I’m looking for. Thanks girlfriend!
I was a little nervous about it too. My mom had a stove one while I was growing up and it was noisy and scary. Just be sure the knob is in the pressure position, the lid is on tight (you can’t pull it up) and use tongs for a quick pressure release. Once you’ve used it once, it’s not so scary. Can’t wait to see what you whip up!

This looks like the perfect family meal!
Looks really good! I’ve never tried cooking with a pressure cooker. Would love to though.

Whoa. This looks delicious, Barbara! And how easy to do, too! I seriously need to get a pressure cooker.
Sounds good! I’ve been neglecting my pressure cooker lately. I have heard that with beef it’s extra important to use the slow-release method; thanks for the reminder about that.
I’m sure a pressure cooker is a great addition to a South Beach lifestyle. I’d love to know some of your favorites.
