Instant Pot Beef Parikash with Egg Noodles

Time: 45 minutes

For whatever reason, this dish reminded me of White Nights and the scene where Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines dance…. love this movie and love this dish! Maybe it will make you want to dance, too.

Music Selection: White Nights – Mikhail Baryshnikov & Gregory Hines


3 Tbsp olive oil

3 pounds beef stew meat, cut in ½ inch cubes


1 onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

3 Tbsp smoked paprika or Hungarian sweet paprika

1 tsp caraway seeds

4 cups beef broth

¼ cup flour

1 cup sour cream

1 Tbsp worchestershire sauce

2 Tbsp cornstarch

1 – 14 oz can tomato sauce

500 g broad egg noodles

3 Tbsp butter

Fresh parsley, chopped finely


Turn instant pot to sear. Heat oil.

When oil is hot, put beef in the pot and let brown on all sides.

Add in the onion and garlic and saute until soft. Salt/pepper.

Mix in the flour and paprika, mix well, until coating the beef and onions.

Pour in the broth and tomato puree and mix well. Turn off sear button.

Put on the instant pot lid, then turn the pressure cooker on for 20 minutes. Quick release.

In the meantime, bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add in the noodles and cook according to package directions (about 10 minutes). Drain and put in bowl and toss with the butter.

In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and worcestershire sauce into the sour cream, until very smooth. When instant pot is released, remove lid and mix in the sour cream and stir until sauce thickens.

To serve, put some noodles in a pasta bowl and top with the beef paprika. Top with a little more sour cream and chopped parsley!
