Instant Pot beef tips are a melt-in-your-mouth main dish made with sherry gravy and savory mushrooms. Comfort food made easy!


  • 22.5 lbs beef chuck roast, cut into 1 in cubes
  • 3/4 cup cooking sherry
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 11oz packet of onion soup mix
  • 8 oz fresh white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbs instant tapioca


  • Add your cubed chuck roast, 3/4 cup cooking sherry, 1/2 cup beef broth, 1 packet of onion soup mix, 8 oz sliced fresh white button mushrooms, 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves, and 1/4 tsp salt to the Instant Pot and stir to combine.  
  • Close the Instant Pot with the lid and set to “Manual” for 35 minutes.  It will take approximately 10 – 15 minutes for the Instant Pot to get to pressure then the 35 minute countdown will start.
  • Once the 35 minutes is up and the Instant Pot beeps, allow it to sit for an additional 10 minutes allowing a natural release of pressure.  After 10 minutes, flip the pressure valve to release the remaining steam.
  • Open the pot and add in 2 Tbs of instant tapioca and stir to combine.  The liquid inside the pot with the beef will be thin and relatively clear.
  • Change the setting on the Instant Pot to “Saute” so the liquid in the pot starts to simmer.  Stir it after about 5 minutes to help prevent the sauce from burning on the bottom.  This will help reduce the sauce and activate the tapioca to create a thick gravy like sauce.
  • After 10 minutes, turn the Instant Pot off and allow your beef tips to sit for an additional 10 minutes so the sauce can continue to thicken.  
  • Serve over cooked egg noodles, mashed potatoes or rice.


  • If you don’t have sherry you can substitute it with an equal measurement of red wine or additional beef broth.
