  • Cuisine: North American


  • 1 lb ground beef, turkey or chicken
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup any broth, low sodium
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb brown mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 lb (4 cups) dry short pasta
  • 12 cups plain yogurt, 2%+ fat content
  • 12 cups whole milk
  • 3 tbsp parsley, finely chopped (for garnish)


  1. On Instant Pot, press Saute and wait until display says Hot. Takes 3-5 mins. Swirl oil to coat if cooking ground chicken or turkey. No need for oil with ground beef.
  2. Add ground meat of choice and cook for about 5 minutes, constantly breaking into small pieces and stirring. Add onion and garlic half way through.
  3. Add broth, thyme, salt, pepper and stir to deglaze the pot if you see burnt bits on the bottom.
  4. Press Cancel and add mushrooms and pasta. Stir.
  5. Close the lid and move pressure valve to Sealing, and press Pressure Cook on High for 7 minutes.
  6. Release pressure using Quick Release method – turn pressure valve to Venting.
  7. Add 1 cup yogurt and 1 cup milk, stir, cover and let stroganoff sit for 10 minutes to create the sauce.
  8. Open the lid and adjust thickness to taste with more milk and/or yogurt if desired.
  9. Sprinkle with parsley, stir and serve warm.

Store: Refrigerate leftovers for up to 3 days, in inner por or airtight container. I would not recommend to freeze.

Reheat with a splash of milk or broth right in inner pot or other small pot on the stove. Simmer on low while stirring a few times and until warmed through.


  • Ground beef: I would recommend to drain fat from ground beef during browning.
  • Undercooked pasta: If pasta appears undercooked or your like very soft pasta, close the lid and let stroganoff sit for 10 mins. The heat will cook pasta further.
  • To double the recipe: Yes, you can double the recipe if you are cooking with 8 quart pressure cooker. Same cooking time. If you have 6 quart or less Instant Pot, I would not recommend to double the recipe. Cook in 2 batches if need to.
  • Gluten free pasta: Cook for 5 minutes.
