- Turn pressure cooker to sauté mode; add oil and allow to heat (Note: we used the 6-qt. Instant Pot ®).

- Once your pressure cooker is heated up add steak, onion and half of your seasoning mix. Sear the steak for about 3 minutes.
- Add beef broth and pasta. Stir
- Pour crushed tomatoes on the top, do not stir.
- Cut peppers into long strips. Place peppers on tin foil, fold foil into pouch and place on top of crushed tomatoes (this allows the peppers to cook without getting mushy).

- Once it has cooked for 10 minutes, let pressure naturally release for 5 minutes.
- Remove foil pouch with tongs and carefully open and incorporate the peppers into the pot. Stir in sour cream and the remaining seasoning mix.
