WHAT HAPPENS IF I OVERCOOK THIS INSTANT POT TRI TIP?
If you accidentally overcook the tri tip, watch the video for the save to make it delicious! If you remove the tri tip at the correct time you will cook it to medium rare so don’t worry! But, if you get distracted and forget about it like I sometimes do, then there’s a risk of it overcooking.
HOW LONG DO I COOK THE TRI TIP?
The cooking time for this tri tip is 17 minutes for medium rare. If you want it to be rare, cook for 15 minutes. Medium well will cook for 19 minutes. If you would like it well done, your cook time is 22 minutes or cook it for 17 minutes and allow it to natural release until the vent is open. This gives you tender meat and is my favorite way to cook it.
IS IT SAFE TO COOK WITH A PRESSURE COOKER OR INSTANT POT?
We purchased a pressure cooker from Amazon and I was honestly really afraid of using it. I remember my Grandma opening the lid and stuff went flying.. not a pretty sight! I’ve heard horror stories of lids flying through ceilings and injuries. The new electric cookers are very easy to use! My Instant Pot is sealed so you cannot open it unless it is safe. I have the Instant Pot version, however, both of my girls have another pressure cooker and it is the same.
I hope you are brave and enjoy this pressure cooker Tri-Tip recipe! Really- don’t be afraid! It was really easy to use! The beef came out perfectly medium rare. You can adjust the time by a minute to two minutes if you want it rare or well done.

A Tri Tip is a triangular shape of meat that is from a cow. It is from the bottom sirloin. When you cut this meat, you will have to change the direction you are cutting in because the grain of the meat changes. It is a great cut of meat for the entire family to enjoy! You can find it at the grocery store and Costco! It is a lean cut of beef and requires minimal effort to get dinner on the table with this slow cooker recipe.

WHAT INSTANT POT BRAND SHOULD I USE?
I have two different brands of pressure cookers. I have only used an electric pressure cooker. The brands I have are the Instant Pot one as well as the Pampered Chef one. I like them both equally. They allow me to make a hearty meal like this one!
WHY THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE INSTANT POT RECIPES:
This Tri-tip is one of my favorite pressure cooker recipes because it is easy to make and tastes delicious. If you make the additional gravy from the sauteed veggies it is the perfect comfort food. You can whip up hot beef sandwiches in less than 40 minutes! Or mashed potatoes and gravy with delicious medium-rare beef in that time frame too! I love meals that are cooked in less than an hour!

This Pressure Cooker Tri-tip is delicious and fast to make. Make sure to release the pressure right away after it is cooked to keep it at medium rare. If you let the pressure release on its own, it will be tough and chewy. Don’t worry if you miss this step. In the video, I show you how to save the meat and your meal.
