  • Steak cut into strips (approx 2 pounds), Sirloin works best.
  • 1 Onion diced
  • 1 TBS minced ginger
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 Cup beef broth
  • ¼ Cup soy sauce
  • 2 TBS brown sugar
  • ¼ TSP Chinese 5 spice
  • 1 TBS sesame oil
  • ¼ TSP red pepper flakes add more to increase spiciness.
  • 2 Cups broccoli
  • 2 Carrots julienned
  • 2 TBS cornstarch mixed with 2 TBS water


  • Whisk sauce together using the onion, ginger, garlic, beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, Chinese 5 spice, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes - inside the Instant Pot insert. DO NOT ADD THE CORNSTARCH SLURRY HERE.
  • Add the sliced steak.
  • Set pressure cooker for 7 minutes.
  • Quick release pressure and add in the cornstarch slurry, carrots and broccoli.
  • Set pressure cooker to saute for one minute so the broccoli cooks.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and serve with rice or noodles.


Note: this recipe is an 8 minute pressure cook time. This does not include the time to pressure up and depressurize. Either way - its quicker than you can order takeout!
