If you have checked out our other recipes, you may notice that our recipe for Ninja Foodi Beef and Noodles is very similar to a couple of other recipes.  This recipe is a twist on our recipes for Ninja Foodi Beef Tips and Rice and Instant Pot Beef Tips and Gravy.  The reason that I have made several variations of virtually the same thing is that I just can’t get enough of it!  Beef tips and gravy in some form is my family’s #1 go-to recipe when we are craving comfort food.

Ninja Foodi Beef and Noodles reminds me of one of my favorite meals at a local family restaurant.  They serve a similar meal in a silver dish that they bring to the table and serve it onto your plate tableside.  I don’t know what it is about the gravy with the noodles, but I have been craving it and thought…hmmm…I can make that!!! So I did!

Tips for making Ninja Foodi Beef and Noodles:


1.Natural release the pressure.  EVERY recipe that I have found online for beef stew meat says to quick release at the end.  This cut of meat will be tough if you quick release.

2. Don’t skip browning the beef before pressure cooking it.  It really does make a big difference.   I’ve made this recipe having browned the meat and not.  The browned meat comes out much more tender and juicy than the unbrowned meat. 

3.When cooking pasta in the Ninja Foodi, feel free to modify the pasta from the recipe.  If you like bowties- go for it.  If you like penne- go for it.  The trick is to look at the cooking times on the box.  Whatever the box says- cut it in half and subtract 2 minutes.  So, if the box says to cook for 10 minutes, you will cut that in half (5) and subtract 2.  All together you would cook for 3 minutes.

4. You can use dry packaged gravy mix instead of the canned gravy but just be sure that you do not add more than 1 cup of water regardless of what the instructions on the packet say.  If you add more water your gravy will be very liquidy!

Directions for making Ninja Foodi Beef and Noodles:


1Turn Ninja Foodi on sauté.  Once the pot is hot, add oil.


2Add beef and season with salt and pepper.  Saute beef until browned on all sides. 


3Move the beef over to half of the pot and add onions to the other half of the pot.  Saute onions until tender- a little browning will add some great flavor!  Be sure to gently scrape off the little brown bits off of the bottom of the pot with a silicone spatula so that they do not burn to the bottom of the pot.


4Stir beef and onions together and add garlic.  Add tomatoes, mushrooms, beef broth and canned gravy.  Stir and close pressure cooking lid.


5Cook on high pressure with valve set to “seal” for 20 minutes.


6Once the timer beeps, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes. Quick-release remaining pressure and then open lid and stir.


7Pour in noodles. Do not stir!  Gently press the noodles down into the liquid.


8Close pressure cooking lid and move the valve to “seal” position.  Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes.  When cooking pasta in the Ninja Foodi, feel free to modify the pasta from the recipe.  If you like bowties- go for it.  If you like penne- go for it.  The trick is to look at the cooking times on the box.  Whatever the box says- cut it in half and subtract 2 minutes.  So, if the box says to cook for 10 minutes, you will cut that in half (5) and subtract 2.  All together you would cook for 3 minutes. The cooking time for my pasta is 14 minutes so that came out to a total pressure cook time of 5 minutes.


9When the timer beeps, naturally release pressure for 5 minutes and then quick release any remaining pressure.  Open lid and stir.  If your noodles are not cooked quite enough, place the lid back on Ninja Foodi for 1-2 minutes but do not turn it on.
