Instant Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff is my favorite hamburger helper recipe. An easy recipe that is done in 30 minutes, and is perfect for a busy weeknight. An all-in-one dish that's full of flavor, budget-conscious and kid-friendly!
Turn Instant Pot on saute mode to preheat. Add some oil, and the diced onions. Cook until softened or about two minutes.
Add the ground beef, and all the seasonings. Cook until no longer pink.
Turn off saute, and add the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, and yellow mustard. Stir together.
Add uncooked pasta as a second layer in pot. Pour the beef broth on top of the pasta. Pat down the pasta so it is covered with the broth.
Put the lid on, and turn the vent to sealing. Cook on high pressure for 4 minutes followed by a quick release. When quick releasing you should do this in short bursts to avoid hot pasta water from escaping the vent, spraying all over the place.
Add the remaining ingredients to the Instant Pot. Turn on saute mode until cream cheese is melted, and all ingredients are combined.
Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container for up to one week. Reheat leftovers in microwave.
This can be frozen for up to three months, and thawed in the refrigerator. Reheat in microwave.
If you have a bunch of browning on the bottom of the liner add a little beef broth to the ground beef mixture before adding the pasta. Once you add that cook on saute for a few minutes to deglaze the liner which will avoid any chance of a burn notice.This recipe was tested in a 6-quart, and I would not recommend doubling this recipe this unless using an 8-quart pot. Doubling would pasta would result in there likely not being enough room for everything to fit.If for some reason the pasta is not done, likely they were not covered completed during cooking. Cook on saute for a few minutes to complete the cooking. To avoid this be sure to pat down the pasta in the broth prior to pressure cooking.Can I add red wine to this recipe?Yes, if you want to add red wine. Some people like the added layer of flavor that this brings to the dish. Add ½ cup after ground beef has been cooked prior to adding any other ingredients. Cook on saute until reduced by one-third to one-half.Can I make this on the stove?Yes, you can make this on the stove. Make the pasta separately. Omit the 3 cups of the beef broth. Once ground beef is cooked, then add cooked pasta, and remaining ingredients. Combine all the ingredients well.
