Beef Teriyaki and Rice
By :Urvashi Pitre

Too often, store-bought or restaurant teriyaki sauces are nothing but sugar with a little soy sauce thrown in for funsies. This version is a lot less sweet than what you’re probably used to, but the other savory flavors shine through. For a lower-carb option, use frozen riced cauliflower in the pan rather than rice, and use xanthan gum for thickening rather than the cornstarch.

Instructions
  1. For the Beef: In the Instant Pot, combine the steak, onion, soy sauce, mirin, water, sugar, ginger, salt, and pepper. Stir well.
  2. For the Rice: In a 6 × 3-inch round heatproof pan, combine the rice, water, oil, and salt. Stir well.
  3. Place a trivet in the pot. Set the pan on the trivet.
  4. Secure the lid on the pot. Close the pressure-release valve. Select MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK and set the pot at HIGH pressure for 5 minutes. At the end of the cooking time, allow the pot to sit undisturbed for 10 minutes, then release any remaining pressure.
  5. Open the lid, and remove the rice.
  6. For Finishing: Select SAUTÉ/Normal on the pot. Add the onion and bell pepper. In a small bowl, mix the water and cornstarch to make a slurry. Stir the slurry into the pot and allow to bubble. Cook, stirring frequently, until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.
  7. Serve over rice. Sprinkle servings with green onions and sesame seeds.
Recipe Notes

Note: If using xanthan gum, sprinkle the gum into the mixture and stir until the sauce thickens.

    any idea what a 6 × 3-inch round heatproof pan?
    if it is round, how come it says 6×3? I am confused.
    does it mean 6″ diameter round and 3″ high?

    Step one says to place the meat and other ingredients in the pot. There’s no mention of removing it.
    Step three says place a trivet in the pot.
    Am I supposed to place the trivet directly on top of the meat and other ingredients?
