Instant Pot Broccoli Beef

The beef turned out so tender and the flavor was wonderful. We are looking forward eating leftovers!

Recipe adapted from Pressure Cooking Today 

  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless beef chuck roast, well trimmed and sliced into thin strips
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup beef broth (I used 1 cup water with 1/2 Tbsp beef broth paste from Costco)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 lb. broccoli florets
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

Put olive oil in the cooking pot and select browning. When oil begins to sizzle, brown meat in batches until all meat is browned - do not crowd. Transfer meat to a plate when brown. 
When all meat is browned select Saute and add chopped onion to the pot. Saute for 1 to 2 minutes until onion starts to soften. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute more. 
Add beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes to the pot. Stir until sugar is dissolved. 
Add browned beef and any accumulated juices. Select High Pressure. Set timer for 12 minutes.  Let natural release. 

Cook broccoli until broccoli is tender. (I cooked on the stove)

In a cup combine cornstarch and water; stir until smooth. Add to pressure cooker pot. Stir well to combine. Select browning and stir until sauce comes to a boil and thickens. Add steam broccoli. 

Serve over hot, cooked rice.
