Did you get anything wonderful for Christmas? Or did you buy yourself something special? I received a programmable pressure cooker from an incredibly thoughtful friend, and it has seriously elevated my cooking game!
I received the 8-quart deluxe model in copper that matches my lovely copper KitchenAid mixer. It’s fast. It’s easy. It locks in flavor and makes even cheap cuts of meat tender and delicious. We now have at least one meal a week in the pressure cooker, and today I’m sharing a family favorite.
This stroganoff uses good ol’ fashioned ground beef instead of strips of steak, making it easy on the wallet as well. It’s a one-pot delicious dinner that’s done in 20 minutes! Let’s get cooking!
1. Start by turning on the Sauté function of the pressure cooker. Crumble and brown ground beef.
2. Next, add minced onion and garlic and cook another 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Season with salt and pepper. Press the Cancel button.
3. Stir in a tablespoon of flour and coat the ground beef. Then add cream of mushroom soup and beef stock.
4. Pour the egg noodles right on top along with some frozen peas, if you please. Although peas aren’t traditional to the recipe, I like to add veggies for my kiddos whenever I can. Close and lock the lid.
Seriously easy, right?
Now the fun begins… make sure the pressure release valve is closed, press the Stew/Soup button and adjust the time to 20 minutes. Now sit back, enjoy a glass of wine and listen to some music. It’s also a good time to heat the oven for dinner rolls to go with the hamburger stroganoff.
5. Once the time is done, press the Cancel button and carefully open the pressure release valve.
When the steam is completely released, remove the lid and stir in sour cream. Oooh, yum!
Serve hot with buttered dinner rolls.
