So you already know based on this post that I'm that one food blogger who did NOT get an Instant Pot this Christmas. 

But I'm not above acknowledging that the Instant Pot's incorporation of a pressure cooker is absolute culinary gold. 

A pressure cooker -- whether traditional or more updated like the Instant Pot -- can be your best friend if you want to cook leaner, tough cuts of meat in a short period of time. I don't know about you, but my days of having a few hours to let a batch of beef tips simmer slowly on the stove are but a distant memory. 

There's a {sad} joke around my house that my meat cooking is... well... not my best skill. 

Hi. My name is Regan. And I serve tough meat. 

Or at least that WAS the case until I started using a pressure cooker. I made these beef tips for the family and received rave reviews.

They're tender, meaty, hearty and the sauce is a family-friendly favorite. 

If you're not ready to jump into the Instant Pot frenzy, you have a home here with me, friend. You can easily purchase a traditional pressure cooker for a fraction of the cost. If you DID get an Instant Pot this holiday season, we can still be friends, right? This recipe will work just as well for you, too. 

Enjoy! ~Regan
