Beef and Noodles in the Instant Pot

I’ve told you I love my Instant Pot and use it often.  I make so many things with no recipe…or a modified recipe.  Today I took a crock pot recipe and tweaked it for the Instant Pot.

I put a beef roast into the Instant Pot.  I put in enough water to reach the top of the roast.

I added:
a pinch of celery salt
2 tablespoons of Worchestire Sauce
2 tablespoons of beef soup base
1 large chopped onion
1 pack of dry onion soup mix
1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup

You can add salt or pepper but I prefer to wait until the end.  Many of the ingredients already have salt in them and I don’t want to add a lot more.  So I season to taste at the end.

I set the Instant Pot of Meat/Stew for 45 minutes.  Typically a roast doesn’t take this long but I wanted it to shred when it was done.

The roast will come out like this….
I took a fork and easily shredded it.

Then I put the beef and a pack of frozen noodles into the Instant Pot.  I turned it on Saute for 5 minutes.

Then I put the lid on and let it sit for 10 minutes until the noodles weren’t frozen and puffed up a bit.

Give it a little taste.  If it needs salt and pepper, you can add it now.

Our family is a little different.  Parmesan Cheese goes on a lot of soups and stews at our house so I added some.  Of course it will need a slice of bread with butter to mop up the leftover juice in the bottom of the bowl.

For me, perfect comfort food.

The kids were home when I made the first batch.  They cleaned the pot completely out before I had a chance to take a picture so I had to make it again a couple days later.  It was so good so I didn’t mind making another batch one bit.

  1. I was just looking at Instapots today at Walmart. I’m always the last to jump on board with new kitchen gadgets. Your use of the Reames Noodles along with mine for Chicken and Reames Noodles just about has my mind set on getting one for myself next month for either my Anniversary or my Birthday, hmm.

    Can you let Jeri know that she should wait for the Black Friday specials on IP?? Should save her a significant amount. Those noodles look awesome…they aren’t out here in Nevada!! I love the Facebook IP group I belong to – so many awesome recipes, including cheesecake recipes!!

  3. Looks delicious! No instant pot here but I can certainly use my slow cooker for this! Thanks for the recipe!
    Love and prayers

  4. I am ready to take the plunge and get an instant pot . I have not made a decent tender flavorful roast in years.
    Also Jo, I want to thank you for the pork tenderloin recipe. My husband used to get them all the time ( before we were married). I think in was at A & W root beer stand. He used to ask at restaurants if they had pork tenderloin sandwich’s but finally gave up. It is so easy and he was so happy when I made them. We have been married 54 years and I was so burned out on cooking, it was great to make something he really enjoyed.
    ÏAfter everything you have gone through with your husband I am appreciating him the time we have. Thank you for helping me with that.

  5. Your dinner looks great !! We don’t have those noodles here in western New York, and the chuck roast I just saw at my grocery store,Wegmans was $32 !! Yikes !! I need a trip to Iowa !!

  6. I made this tonight with a couple of tweaks – chopped mushrooms and minced garlic on the last 10 minute rest, and then placed mashed potatoes on the bottom of the plate.

  7. As I posted today, I now own an Instant Pot since our stove and microwave are out of commission during the big kitchen remodeling. I’m in the market for recipes and I’ll try this one!

  8. One more tweak. I always brown my roast first in a fry pan, for added flavor, before I put it in the crock pot. don’t have a instant pot. I live alone and don’t need too many gadgets, even though they sound like a good pot to cook in.

    So glad you posted about the instant pot, beef and noodles. I bought a pot about a year and a half ago and today I decided to not be afraid of it and make the beef and noodles. I spilled half a big can of tomato juice all over this morning so what else could go wrong!? Everything went fine and they were delicious…thanks for the instructions. I enjoy your blog and read most and am glad for all the addresses of people that would take fabric, batting and blocks I haven’t finished.
