Instructions
  1. Add Sauce Mixture ingredients to the pot and stir until well combined. Add beef and toss to coat.
  2. Secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  3. Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 10 minutes.
  4. When the time is up, quick-release the remaining pressure.
  5. Remove 1/4 cup of cooking liquid and mix with cornstarch (If you can’t get 1/4 cup of cooking liquid out, supplement with water).
  6. Stir cornstarch slurry, broccoli florets and toasted sesame oil into the pot for 3-5 minutes until broccoli is tender and sauce has thickened, returning to SAUTE mode as needed.
  7. Garnish with sesame seeds (optional). Serve over rice or zucchini zoodles.

    Came out great! Definitely will be using this recipe often. One pro tip I reccomend is slicing the meat into rather thin 1 square inch pieces or like the size you’d expect from say Panda Express. I cut mine a little too big and chewing became a chore. For rice, i cheated and used those 90 second microwave rice packs you can get for like 2 bucks. 10/10 would recommend.

    Turned out great! Used a t-bone steak and sliced it very thin. Meat was tender abs flavorful. Also used powdered ginger and garlic. Will definitley make again.

    We had a tough time getting the broccoli cooked all the way through. I would suggest steaming for a couple of minutes before adding them. The taste was good but a tad mild. Next time we’ll add more of everything spice wise.
