Instant Pot Swiss Steak

Round Steak, cut into serving size pieces
1 cup all purpose flour
Garlic powder
2 cups water
2 Tablespoons Beef bouillon
1/2 a large onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
3 carrots, sliced

Mix flour with salt, pepper & garlic powder.  Dredge steak in flour mixture and brown in Instant Pot on ‘Saute’.  (Reserve 2-3 tablespoons of flour mixture to thicken gravy) When steak pieces are all browned remove to plate and set aside.

Add 2 cups water to Instant Pot and stir, loosening any cooked on pieces.  Add beef bouillon and stir until dissolved.  Add onions, celery and carrots to liquid mixture, giving a good stir and let come to a boil.

Turn Instant Pot off and add steak back, submerging under the liquid.  Put lid on Instant Pot, making sure that valve is closed.  Cook on ‘Meat/Stew’ for 25 minutes. When timer goes off, turn Instant Pot off and do a natural pressure release (NPR) for about 15 minutes, if pin has not dropped do a quick pressure release (QR) to release any remaining pressure.  Remove lid.

Remove steak pieces to a plate.  Turn Instant Pot to ‘Saute’.  Combine reserved flour mixture and 1/4-1/2 cup of cold water and then add to bubbling liquid in Instant Pot, stirring the whole time.  Add enough of the flour/water mixture until gravy is to your desired thickness.

Serve with mashed potatoes and veggie of your choice for a real comfort meal.

**Can also be prepared on the stove top/oven.  Saute the steak in a skillet on the stove top and then remove steak to a casserole dish and set aside.  Add water and boullion and bring to a boil.  Add onions, celery and carrots.  Pour all over steak pieces.

Bake at 325 for 2 to 2.5 hours.  Stir occasionally.  Add water if needed.  Will make it’s own gravy.
