Instant Pot Swiss Steak Ingredients:


  • Do your prep. Peel your onion, clean the vegetables and chop everything. Remove the cores of the tomatoes and put to one side.

  • Pound your steak on a chopping board and if not already diced, dice your steak. Season with paprika, parsley, salt, and pepper. Load into the instant pot and using a little extra virgin olive oil, brown your steak on the sauté setting.

  • Remove the steak and put to one side. Load the instant pot with your celery, pepper, onion, and mushrooms and sauté for a minute or two. Cancel the sauté and deglaze the instant pot with red wine.

  • Place the tall trivet over your swiss steak making sure it is not wobbly. Add a steamer basket or something similar that will fit and load it up with cubed potatoes. Place the lid on the instant pot and set the valve to sealing. Pressure cook for 25 minutes and then follow this up with a 10 minute natural pressure release.

  • After releasing pressure and removing the lid, remove the potatoes and make mashed potatoes. They will be very soft and will not need much of an effort. Then drain 75% of the liquid from the instant pot as this is going to be added to the freezer later for spare beef stock. Then stir the remainder.

  • Load mashed potatoes onto dinner plates with swiss steak loaded on top.

Draining. Of course, you could thicken your swiss steak with cornflour or with gravy granules. But stock from the instant pot is amazing and keeps your meal much healthier. I recommend you drain your instant pot and then add a little back in until you have the correct consistency.
Gravy. If you would like it more like a gravy, you can partially blend part of the stock and it will make a creamy mushroom gravy.
