How to Make Sirloin Tip in the Instant Pot

A complete printable version of this recipe with ingredient measurements is available at the bottom of this post


STEP ONE: Combine Montreal steak seasoning, salt and pepper in a small bowl, and rub the entire roast evenly.

STEP TWO: Heat a tablespoon of oil with the stir-fry button, and seal both sides of the meat. Remove the roast and set aside.

I recommend waiting at least 2 minutes after adding the oil when sautéing to add the meat. You can also wait until the Instant Pot says “HOT”.

STEP THREE: Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil and sauté the onions. Add the garlic until fragrant.

STEP FOUR: Turn off the pressure cooker and pour in the meat broth. Deglaze the pot with a wooden spoon.

This just means getting as much out of the bottom of the pot as possible.

STEP FIVE: Place the roast back in the pressure cooker and add the carrots and potatoes. Pour in the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Add the cap and close the pressure valve.

STEP SIX: Cook under high pressure for 10 minutes, then complete a 3-minute natural release, and then manually release the instant pot


Use an instant-read meat thermometer to check the temperature.

If it is too low, remove the vegetables and turn it to “Stay warm”. Let it roast until it reaches temperature.

STEP SEVEN: Place the vegetables and onions in a bowl to rest and turn on the stir-fry function. Combine the cold water and cornstarch in a bowl. Once the juices are boiling, slowly add the cornstarch to thicken the sauce.

STEP EIGHT: Cut the roasted tip into thin slices and serve over roast and vegetables. Sprinkle with fresh thyme or parsley.

How to Make Frozen Instant Sirloin Tip Roast

STEP ONE: Add Montreal steak seasoning, salt and pepper to roast and seal both sides of the meat. Place the meat in a sealed zippered bag and freeze.

Using a frozen and unseasoned sirloin roast is possible, but beef tenderloin may not be as tasty.

STEP TWO: When you’re ready to cook, start at step three above. Place the frozen meat in the pot and arrange the vegetables, broth and Worcestershire. Close the lid and pressure valve.

STEP THREE: Switch to manual high pressure and set the timer for 40 minutes. Complete a 10-minute natural release and check the internal temperature of the meat.

If it’s not done, go to the “Keep warm” setting and let the roast beef tenderloin tip finish cooking


STEP FOUR: Prepare the sauce as shown in the recipe above and serve as directed. Enjoy!

I like my tip to be thinly sliced when served.

Can you overcook the steak in an instant pot?

Yes, unfortunately, you can overcook meat. If you’re working with a smaller cut of beef tenderloin, such as a 2-pound cut, you’ll need to decrease the amount of cooking time by 5 minutes.

When overcooked, the steak is still edible. It won’t be so nice if it isn’t cooked properly.

Be sure to use a digital meat thermometer when checking the temperature. For a medium-rare roast, it should be 120 degrees F.

Does pressure cooking soften meat?

yes! Tenderizing meat is one of the biggest advantages of pressure cooking.

You can use cheaper cuts of meat because the pressure cooker breaks down the collagen in the meat into gelatin while cooking. This is what makes the meat super tender.

What is the difference between a natural and manual release in

the instant cooker?

A natural release means allowing the instant cooker to slowly lose pressure on its own. You don’t have to touch any steam buttons or valves, as the Instant Pot will automatically start releasing pressure naturally as soon as the timer reaches zero and beeps.

A quick release, or

manual release, is when you manually rotate or press the vent valve to quickly release pressure. The pressure disappears completely once the valve falls.

The Instant Pot will let out a lot of steam when released manually, so it’s important to use a wooden spoon, or my favorite is to wear a long oven glove to protect my hand and forearm from hot steam.

Why is my roast hard in an instant pot?

If you find the Sirloin Tip Roast in the Instant Pot difficult to review, it simply hasn’t been cooked enough.

Turn the device to the warm setting and let it sit until it softens.

If it is extremely hard, you can cook it under high pressure for 5 minutes and allow a natural release of 3 minutes.

Do I have to seal the meat?

While you don’t technically have to seal the meat, it will greatly affect the outcome.

Burning meat helps lock in moisture. It gives it a pleasant crust that enhances the flavor.

Skipping this will leave the roasted instant sirloin tip a little boring and taste like something is missing.
