Pressure Cooker Sirloin Tips in Gravy

Here’s another great, time saving recipe that I made in my pressure cooker. It’s the same idea as my Three Easy Round Steak Meals post, but made faster and easier by using my 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 froze 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.
