When I was growing up we had a few meals that were regular menu items. We wouldn’t usually go much longer than 2 weeks without having one or the other. You know what I am talking about, right? Spaghetti, Pizza, pot roast, fried chicken, and beef tips and rice were always on the list at our house.
Instant Pot Beef Tips and Rice Recipe
Fast forward about 30 years later and I actually do the same thing with my family. We don’t do all of the same recipes, but I definitely have the beef tips and rice on a regular basis. It’s so simple and I just love the recipe I use. Making it in the Instant Pot makes this recipe even better!
What ingredients do I need to make Instant Pot Beef Tips and Rice?
I try to keep things super simple. I never want to use more than 5 ingredients if possible. This is one of those recipes that really doesn’t take long to make and doesn’t take a lot of ingredients either. Other than the actual beef tips and rice, you only need another handful of ingredients. I like to use Dale’s seasoning sauce as one of those ingredients. If you don’t have that available in your area, you can always substitute it for worcestershire sauce and black pepper.
How to Make Beef Tips and Rice in the Instant Pot
There are several different ways you can make beef tips and rice in the Instant Pot but I have found that I really like this recipe the best. It doesn’t take long, and it’s just long enough that I can fold a load of laundry or get one of the kids bathed before my Instant Pot is BEEPing and letting me know they are done.
Why do I think this is the perfect beef tips recipe? I have honestly never had beef tips as tender and moist as the ones that I make in the Instant Pot. It really did take this recipe up a notch in my opinion.
Cook time for Instant Pot Beef Tips
What is the cook time for Instant Pot Beef tips? I would say that the actual time from start to finish is going to be about 45 minutes. If you are planning on making a side or try and step away from the Instant Pot while it is cooking, you will have about 40 minutes.
First you will saute the chopped onions and beef tips for a few minutes in olive oil until lightly browned. Once finished, add the remainder of your ingredients and then close the lid to seal. Make sure you vent is also set to seal.
Set the Instant Pot on manual and set the timer for 25 minutes. Once you hear the beep and the time is finished, allow your beef tips to naturally release for about 10 minutes and then carefully manual release the remaining pressure. If you have the time, let the beef tips and rice naturally release for a full 20 minutes before serving.

One of my other favorite things about this recipe is the GRAVY! I love how perfectly the gravy turns out in this recipe. However, if you prefer a thicker gravy, add a little cornstarch to water and mix it into the Instant Pot. Give it a couple of minutes and it will thicken up nicely. Serve over a bowl of rice and ENJOY!
