    1. It surely depends on the size of the steak you used: If it was too thin, it was overcooked, but on the other hand, if you put a big piece of meat into the pot, 12 minutes won’t be enough. Like any other recipe, Instant Pot ones have to be adapted to the single case, because there are things that can vary: Size of ingredients, model of the pot, result you want (rare, medium, well done for meat) etc.

  1. Wasted 15 dollars in steak w this recipe. Did it twice, first time was way over cooked so I cut the times in half and it still was awful.

  2. I’m not sure what it is exactly that I’m doing wrong. I follow the recipes to the letter and sometimes it comes out great and other times it completely ruins an expensive steak. I’m getting to a point of returning this product and going back to my four pans on the stove to cook dinner. Just not as easy as everyone makes it sound.

  3. I prefer a slow cooker over the instant pot. My question is: How long should I let ut cook in a slow cooker?

    1. With a slow cooker it really depends on how much time you want to set aside. I choose to do 8 hours on low for when go to work. And when I am at home I cook for 4 hours on high.

  4. Couple of questions for Corrie – what was the temperature if the sirloin after cooking this recipe? How much time should it take for different sizes of sirloin?

  5. Our 3/4″ Sirloin was tough as a boot when done but the flavor was good. So how does one estimate the cook time for this size of steak?
