Can I Try This With Another Cut of Meat?

Well, you absolutely can. The idea is to utilize that little extra meat you have in the freezer, and turn it into this delicious dish that you can team up with your pasta or rice. 

Of course, the cooking time will be different, depending on how thick the cut of meat is- the bigger the chunk, the longer the cooking time.

What are Beef Tips?

Beef tips, being thinner cuts of meat, take a really short time to cook. As long as you follow the recipe, the meat should be cooked perfectly.

Remember that beef, being a thicker cut of meat, tends to soften and fall apart when you cook it for a longer duration, as opposed to hardening and becoming chewy, which is what happens with lean meats like chicken and turkey. 

Can I Make & Store This? 

Just like most other gravy based foods, you can definitely make this in advance and store it for later. Ideally, the best way to do that is to pour it into an airtight container and pop it into the freezer- it should stay good in there for a month, or for approximately 5 days in your refrigerator. 

Of course, once you defrost and warm it, the meat will not retain that same texture, but it is still worth it if you’re someone who likes to plan their meals or prep them and get them ready for the week. 

How Many Types of Paprika Are There?

There are several different kinds of paprika- sweet paprika, Hungarian paprika, smoked paprika etc.

Serving Ideas & Suggestions

Beef tips taste best when served over pasta or Instant Pot rice, or even potatoes if you’ve got a potato lover in you. Plus, you can also modify this recipe and make it healthier, depending on the ingredients you have in your kitchen. 

Add in our homemade Instant Pot bone broth instead of beef broth for more added health benefits.

To lend it a bit of fiber, you can add some veggies into the mix while you’re sauteeing it- bell peppers, carrots, and onions taste amazing!

To add in a little heat, you can also sprinkle a little bit of curry powder or add in some chopped chili peppers. Boiled peas and steamed broccoli also taste great alongside these instant pot paprika beef tips.

And of course, by adding in some chopped mushrooms into the mix, you can really take the taste to a whole new level.
