Instant Pot Beef Tips Recipe

Instant Pot Beef Tips Recipe
Lately there have been dozens of recipes for various dishes called Beef Tips. Apparently, beef tips are pieces of meat – originally cut from the tenderloin, but lately from other cuts – that aren’t big enough to sell as a roast, but are good for cooking, nonetheless. Beef tips can be sold as pieces of beef chuck, sirloin, tenderloin, or almost any cut of beef. Generally they are cut into cubes and cooked in sauces. The following Instant Pot Beef Tips is quick and easy, and the end result is delicious, tender beef chunks in a flavorful gravy that can be serve with rice or potatoes. I don’t use tenderloin in these beef tips because of the exorbitant price, as well as the fact that they are so tender, that they don’t need much time to cook. Instead, I cut up a chuck roast or use top sirloin – whatever I happen to have in my freezer. You can use any economical cut and it will end up very tender and tasty.

3 pounds sirloin tip steaks, or chuck tender steak, or chuck roast

  1. Trim the meat of fat and cut it into 1" chunks.
