Equipment

  • Pressure Cooker

Ingredients

Seasoning Blend

  • 1 teaspoon fine grind sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon thyme leaves dried or about 2 sprigs of fresh thyme

Beef Tips & Gravy

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1.5 pounds beef sirloin roast cut into 1" cubes or 4"x1" strips
  • 2 medium sweet or yellow onions divided in recipe
  • 8 ounces baby portobello or white button mushrooms
  • 10 ounces beef consommé see recipe notes if not using a pressure cooker
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons water

Rice

  • 1 cup white long grain rice
  • cups water see recipe notes if not making in pressure cooker

Broccoli for 360 meal

  • 12 ounces frozen broccoli

Instructions

  • Cut the beef into 3-4" strips that are about 1" wide or into 1½-2" cubes. Season with the seasoning blend.
  • Turn the sear/sauté on high and add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to the inner pot. When the oil is hot, add the beef and brown for 2 minutes. Stir to brown the other side and add in 1 onion cut into 1" strips. Add in the sliced mushrooms or you can leave them whole if you prefer.
  • Deglaze the pot with the consommé, making sure to scrape the bottom to remove any stuck on bits (fond). Add the Worcestershire sauce and balsamic vinegar and stir. Put the pressure lid on and turn the valve to seal. Pressure cook on high for 15 minutes.
  • When the time is up, do an immediate release. This will not dry out the meat because it is submerged in liquid and we are not removing it. Removed the pressure cooker lid and add the second onion (cut into strips). Push the onion under the liquid the best you can.
  • Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear and place in a metal pan. I used a 6"x2" Fat Daddio pan, but you can use any pan that fits on your rack. Add 1¼ cups of water to the rice and cover with foil or a silicone cover. Place the rack in the pressure cooker and set the rice on top. *see below if you are making a 360 meal with broccoli.
  • Put the pressure lid on and turn the valve to seal. Pressure cook on high for 3 minutes with a 5 minute natural release. *the time is different for the 360 meal, so see below for instructions if using frozen broccoli.
  • When the 5 minute natural release is up, manually release the remaining pressure and remove the lid when the pin drops.
  • Remove the pan with the rice and set aside with the cover on. Combine the cornstarch with the water and stir to combine, making sure there aren't any lumps. Turn the sear/satué on high and add the cornstarch slurry. Stir and bring to a boil. This will thicken the gravy. Turn the pressure cooker off once the mixture starts to boil.
  • Uncover and fluff the rice. Serve & Enjoy!

For 360 meal with frozen broccoli

  • The only changes to the above recipe are adding the layer of frozen broccoli and decreasing the second pressure cooking time. This is done because the time to pressure is increased due to the frozen broccoli.
  • Once the beef tips have finished their first pressure cooking time. Place 12 ounces of broccoli in an 8"X2" Fat Daddio Pan or another metal pan that fits under the reversible rack and cover with foil or a silicone cover. Secure the pan UNDER the rack with a grifiti band. Lower the rack into the inner pot, make sure it touches the bottom to allow enough room for the pan of rice on top.
  • Add the covered pan of rice and water, as instructed above, on top of the rack. Make sure the pan is towards the front of the pressure cooker and not blocking the vent and pin. Pressure cook on high for 2 minutes and when the time is up, do an immediate release.
  • Remove the pan of rice and leave covered. Remove the rack with the broccoli and uncover. Season and add butter if desired.
  • Follow the instructions above for making the gravy. Serve & Enjoy!
