Instant Pot Red Beans And Rice With Beef Tips

Sometimes we all need convenience in our lives. This recipe is just that. Convenient, easy, delicious, and very filling. It is my take on a classic “Red Beans And Rice” except with a spin. It has the classic flavor of red beans and rice with the added meat portion of beef tips. It makes for a healthy and delicious meal. I love cajun cooking and this recipe hits that for me.
