Instant Pot {Pressure Cooker} Hamburger Stroganoff ~ Our Favorite Meal Now in the Instant Pot! Only One Dish to Clean and You Have an Easy Dinner Recipe!

You guys! I’m pretty sure I haven’t shared my exciting news with you that I’ve been keeping a secret for like MONTHS! Ok, so it’s exciting for me at least, maybe not you! The story starts over this past year. Let’s just say I’ve been STRESSED to the max. Full time job, two kids and now three kids at home, a husband, a blog, life….you get the picture. I was BUSY. Real busy. And a little stressed… ok a LOT stressed.

I’d become a not very nice person to be around. I was cranky with the hubs, short with the kiddos and generally not real happy about anything. That could have been half blamed on the pregnancy not going to lie, but the other part was I was working ALL.THE.TIME. I’d get done at my regular job, come home do the dinner and kids thing, then rush them off to bed and sit at the computer for 1-2 hours every night. On the weekends I’d be making recipes, filming videos, scheduling pins, scheduling Facebook and shoving my kids out the door. It was not fun. I LOVE this blog but, well, something had to give.


Let’s just say as much as I want to be superwoman I’ve learned I’m not. I tried to figure out how to add about 10 hours to a day and that didn’t happen either. I was at a crossroads on what to do. Step back from the job? Step back from the blog? Continue to be stressed? Sell my children?

Ok, I’m kidding. The latter one was not an option! But, in all seriousness I had to do something. The hubs kept telling me. I finally listened.

Instant Pot {Pressure Cooker} Hamburger Stroganoff ~ Our Favorite Meal Now in the Instant Pot! Only One Dish to Clean and You Have an Easy Dinner Recipe!

Actually, what I did was pray and pray hard. I asked my Mom to pray, I asked the hubs to pray. I needed some guidance. Well, I more or less needed the good Lord to just pave the route out in a yellow brick road because I’m not real good at letting go and trusting. And pave the way did He!

I kept going back and forth on just quitting my full-time job completely, but I didn’t want to. I love my job, I love the people I work with and I wasn’t ready to let go of that. Unfortunately, we don’t exactly have “part-time” positions where I work. What to do? Plus, if I quit my job then the kids stay home and that’s a full-time job there so I felt like I wouldn’t be accomplishing much. I’d be taking care of them and still blogging on the nights and weekends.

Then in December at an employee meeting my General Manager announced they were hiring a few part-time positions. Say what? Part-Time? My head was spinning. This was my answer. I had to have faith that this was it. I don’t think I listened to much after that as I zoned out. After the meeting I quickly rushed into his office and announced that I wanted to go part-time if it was an option. I literally thought he was going to fall over as he stood there looking at me like I was nuts. Whoops!

He graciously said, Ok but asked me to think about it before they did anything for sure. I said sure I’ll do that. I went back and forth, it was a hard decision. I wanted to do it all. I can’t do it all. I had to come to terms with that. I was letting go of a lot of security if I went part-time. Mainly the benefits that my job offered, but my hubs now has a job that has great benefits to and we were doing that so I could possibly go part-time or quit my job. I had to remember that. Remember? The Lord literally placed everything I asked for in my prayers in front of me! The hubs got a new job with benefits, we had a part-time position, the blog was doing great…. paved the way! It was like He kept handing me a sign and going DO IT!!!Instant Pot {Pressure Cooker} Hamburger Stroganoff ~ Our Favorite Meal Now in the Instant Pot! Only One Dish to Clean and You Have an Easy Dinner Recipe!

There was a lot of things I had to remember and have a little faith in. As I went on maternity leave we just left things hanging at work. They hoped post pregnancy would clear my head and I’d become super woman and come back full-time. Unfortunately, I emailed them and asked them to make it official a week ago.


I’m still nervous, I’m still anxious but I’m so excited!! I will work about 2 1/2 days a week and the rest of the time I will focus on my blog during the day. I might lay on the couch at night and watch crap television, or maybe on the weekends I’ll be able to hang out with my kids and husband! I mean, that’s the point of having them, right? Plus, as the kids get older everyone keeps telling me life gets BUSIER and I don’t have time for busier, but now I do! Maybe…

So keep reading, keep pinning, keep making my recipes so I know I did the right thing… ok? Thanks for making my dreams come true!!

Oooooo by the way. This recipe rocks. I took my all time favorite Hamburger Stroganoff recipe and made it in the Instant Pot!!! Don’t have an Instant Pot? What are you waiting for? Seriously. You guys. If you are as crazy busy as me you need one ASAP.

    P.S. I need to share this recipe with my mom because she loves Stroganoff AND her Instant Pot. This looks like a real winner!

  • Malinda@Countryside Cravings

    Congrats! I think you made the right choice! I’ve been thinking about going part time on the whole mommy thing, lol, just kidding. Selling the kids sounds pretty good too, just kidding again! So happy for you and yes I do need to get an instant pot!

    • Julie Evink

      Some days I’d like to go down to quarter time on the Mommy gig ๐Ÿ˜‰ Get and IP! Life changer!

  • Sharon

    Woohoo! Congrats on taking the leap into part-time work! I struggle to manage my full-time job and the blog so I have no clue how those bloggers with kids AND a full-time job do it! You’re a warrior! I hope you love all the extra time and get everything you want from it ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Julie Evink

      Ha or I’m just CRAZY all the time ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks sweetie!

  • Celeste

    Congratulations on giving yourself more you and family time, I was fortunate to have been able to stay home with my kiddos I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I was worried you were going to stop the blog I couldn’t take that lol good for you. Enjoy that beautiful family of yours! Happy Easter to you! ??

  • Judy Thurston

    I bet you feel alot better on ” Part Time” You have more time to spend with your hubby and kids?With your stroganoff do you have to have a pressure cooker or can i use a crockpot instead? Please Reply back ASAP! It looks so good!

    • Julie Evink

      That’s the goal! I’ve never tried in this in the crock pot. Just on the stove and IP! Guess I need to do that next!

  • Sherrey Kellogg

    I made your wonderful stroganoff tonight and it was a big hit! it’s absolutely delicious, thank you so much for the recipe!

    • Julie Evink

      Your welcome! Glad you enjoyed it!

  • Leanne

    Made for dinner tonight! So delicious and everyone loved it! Thank you

  • Paula Keenan

    Solid dish. I lightened it up by cooking on the stove top so I could drain and rinse ground beef. Used No Yolk Egg Noodles, and Daisy Red Fat Sour Cream. Probably because I made it on stove top I needed about 3 TBSP of flour instead of 1. Also, 1 TBSP of worcestershire sauce kicks it up a notch in flavor. Thanks for the recipe. The kids were fans!

    • Julie Evink

      Great changes Paula! Glad you enjoyed it!

  • Jeanie

    The IP stroganoff was terrific!

  • Ingrid

    I made this today but found it very liquidy, more like stroganoff soup! Is it supposed to be this way?

    • Tracy

      I had the same problem. Super liquidy!

  • Rachael

    This is really good, but I did make some adjustments. First, I doubled up the meat because I prefer a little more meat to noodles.I added 1 lb. lamb and 1 lb. lean ground beef. OMG! It was so good. I also used 2 cups of whole wheat noodles. I live in the Deep South, and I always make some adjustments to seasoning because salt and pepper alone is too bland for me. I grew up with Louisiana cooking. I added some cayenne pepper, thyme, parsley, and a little creole seasoning. I also used garlic salt as opposed to regular salt. I also added some Worcestershire sauce, which I think is a must in stroganoff. The flavor was amazing, especially with the lamb taste combined, Oh, I also switched out the cream of mushroom with cream of celery because my boyfriend does not like mushrooms.

  • Sharon

    This was delicious! The whole family loved it and asked that I double the recipe. Do I just double all the ingredients or is there another way. I am still rather new to pressure cooking. I have an 8 qt. stove top pressure cooker. I am pretty sure I would be able to fit it all in the same pot.

    • Julie Evink

      Hey Sharon! I’m not sure if it would all fit in the pressure cooker or not as I have never doubled it. If you double it I might throw on a few extra minutes of cooking time also as there is more to cook. If you try it let me know how it goes!

  • Mad_jer

    I’ve got this cooking in the instant pot as I type. Can’t wait to dig in!

    Thanks for the recipe!

  • belinda

    i was actually interested until you said pray. i cant seriously believe with the hell that is happening in Syria, any god gives a a rats ass about whether you work full or part time? are you really that egotistical? 7 billion people on this planet and your version of an omnipotent being is paying attention to 40 hours versus 20? really? and cream of mushroom soup is gross.

    • Julie Evink

      Apparently I need to pray for you next as you seem to need it.

      • Sallie


      • Victoria Barnes

        Amen!!!! Great response!

    • Anne

      Belinda, our God is almighty and all powerful. We are his children and he wants us to ask him for what we need in our lives. If it is according to his will, he will grant us what we want. He doesn’t always give us what we want, he gives us what we need. He also allows bad things to happen to us because we are sinful creatures. So yes, he gives a rats ass about what happens to all of us.

      Julie, congratulations on your new status and doing what you feel is best for you and your family. It sounds as if you’ll be much happier and definitely much less stressed. I’m trying this recipe tonight–I just got my Instant Pot and I’m blown away by it!

    • Andreanne

      Belinda, how disappointing it is to read such a negative and harmful post. We are all trying to do the best with what we have and lead joyful lives. If we don’t do that, what is the point of any of this? Honestly, if you have nothing good to contribute, keep your thoughts to yourself. The world doesn’t need more negativity.

  • Amy

    The flavors in this were really good and my kids even liked it! With that being said I do think slightly less cook time would be beneficial, and possibly less broth. My end result was pretty soupy and the noodles were over done for my personal liking. I’m thinking maybe a cup less of broth and only 5 minutes on manual instead of 8. If I try it again soon with these changes I will have to update!

  • Celeste

    Do you think there is a way to make this non-dairy? Any sub for the sour cream that would work out?

  • Corrine Norton

    Can I sub greek yogurt for sour cream? I’m thinking I’m going to have too as I’m out of sour cream and no time to run out.

    • Julie Evink

      Yes I’ve did this before. It just gives it a little bit more of a tang.

      • Corrine Norton

        Thanks- I think I will keep making it this way. Turned out awesome- great recipe!

  • Paula

    Thank you for the quick, simple, and delicious meal idea! Perfect for my skill level!

    • Julie Evink

      Glad to hear you enjoyed it Paula!

  • SandyToes

    This is my first time commenting here, and this is the first recipe I’ve made from your website. This stroganoff was really good, and a perfect fit for me this summer, when my cooking mojo is on an extended vacation. My husband wanted stroganoff tonight but I just didn’t want to cook it from scratch, as I normally do. Your easy version saved me and was even easier because I used pre-cooked seasoned ground beef from the freezer.

    Thanks for keeping my guy happy and saving me from slaving over a hot stove!

  • Crystal

    Hi! I am wondering if this recipe can be doubled in a 6qt. Pot?

    (I have not yet bought a pot, and am still trying to decide between a 6 & 8 qt., but I regularly make this in a crockpot, so am curious).


    • Julie Evink

      It’d be tight! I would go with the 8 qt!

  • Chelsea

    This looks great! I need to triple the recipe. Could I just copy the recipe steps and use my stovetop if I cooked my noodles on the side?

  • Cindy

    Just ordered my IP last night. I’m wondering how much more time you would need to cook it if you use stew meat instead of ground beef? Thanks! This may be our first meal once it arrives!

    • Julie Evink

      I don’t know if it would work with stew meat because you have to brown the hamburger before you pressure cook the noodles. You’d have to cook the stew meat before hand for this to work. If you add time to the recipe for the pressure cooking part the noodles will turn to mush.

  • Vicki Walters

    Was very liquidy, not sure what i did wrong?

    • Julie Evink

      Did you add the sour cream at the end?

  • Ally

    Hi. What does the sour cream do for this recipe?

    • Julie Evink

      Makes it delicious!

      • Ally

        So it’s optional? I don’t need to add it and it won’t really change how the recipe comes out?

        • Julie Evink

          It thickens up the sauce and makes it more creamier. So if you leave it out it’s going to be more beef broth based, so more like a soup.

  • Sue O

    This is a go to recipe with simple ingredients that taste great. It’s a great for new instant pots users and very kid friendly. The only change I have made was the time, 4-5 minutes if you don’t like mushy noodles.

  • Carol

    I’m new to the Instant Pot so constantly looking for recipes to try. I followed your recipe in my 5qt Instant Pot reducing the broth to 2 1/2 cups and cooking for 7 minutes.
    Hubby said it was “excellent”. Yoohoo!!

    Thank you very much for this easy to make great recipe

    • Julie Evink

      So glad you enjoyed it Carol!

  • Shelly

    I put my IP on seal for 8 min? Correct? New to this IP thing:) Thanks

    • Julie Evink

      Yes! If you want the noodles more al dente then 6 minutes ๐Ÿ™‚

  • JoBeth

    I am a family of 7…can I double the recipe and add the whole 1lb bag of dry egg noodles?

    • Julie Evink

      What size of Pressure cooker? I have the 6 quart and I wouldn’t recommend doubling it in this size.

  • JoBeth

    Can i double this recipe?

  • Jen

    Do I just leave noodels on top or mix in before cookimg? Does it make a difference?

  • Marie-France

    I’ve read many times that one must not add thickners (flour, etc.) in the pressure cooking, only after. That thickners would make the liquid too thick, stop the pressure cooker from reaching pressure point… You’ve never had that problem, with this recipe?

    • Julie Evink

      Nope I’ve never had a problem!

  • Amy

    Congratulations on going part-time. I became a SAHM when my disability took away my ability to work, and it’s one of my biggest blessings. Being home with my child, being the one with the biggest influence on her, and getting blessed by her daily is the best gift of motherhood. My daughter goes to preschool two days per week and it’s amazing to think of the huge influence that has on her for just that small period of time. Sometimes we absolutely have to have something going on outside the home, but the more time we can be with our kids, the better. May God bless the time you have together.

  • Loves her IP

    I’m not a fan of canned soups, what could i use instead?

  • Shellea

    I used this recipe as my “guinea pig” for using my new IP for the first time! It was so simple and the flavors were amazing! Only issue I had was it was too thin, but next time I will just add more noodles! In my reg stroganoff recipe I don’t use beef broth, but it did add a different dimension to the flavor. Could be why the sauce was so loose? Thanks!!

    • Julie Evink

      You could reduce the amount of broth that would also help!

  • Jeanette B Gilder

    Hi, This was amazing! My husband loves the box stuff but he said this was delicious. I did omit the soup and used homemade bone broth with a little more flour to thicken.

  • Meli

    Hi! Just got my ip. When measuring your liquids do you use the cup that came with the ip, or a regular measuring cup? I think the ip cup is only 6oz, compared to regular 8oz.

    Thanks! Excited to try your recipe!

    • Julie Evink

      I use a regular measuring cup.

  • Sophie

    The flavors were great but it turned out terrible! I used the exact cook time as instructed and the noodles were complete mush. it was mushy soup instead of a noodle dish. I have no idea what happened…

    • Julie Evink

      I’m sorry to hear this Sophie. I’ve made it multiple times and our family loves it!

  • Laura

    Hello, does anyone know if this freezes well?

    • Julie Evink

      I’m sorry I’ve never tried to freeze it!

  • Catherine Allen

    Hi! Iโ€™m going to try this using ground turkey and chicken broth, plus the Worcestershire sauce another reader recommended, and for only 5 minutes for al dente noodles. My question: is the nutritional analysis done for the whole recipe? Thanks for this brilliant idea!
