Instant Pot Beef with Broccoli

Beef with Broccoli

When I’m not busy cooking away in the kitchen, I love ordering take out just as much. And Chinese Food is one of my favorites! Today I was really craving Beef with Broccoli, and it’s one of my son’s favorites too! So, I decided to make it in the instant pot with this super tender, & deliciously flavorful Instant Pot Beef with Broccoli!

Note: You can also make this recipe in the crock pot. (I’ll include that variation at the end of the recipe.)

Instant Pot Beef with Broccoli

First, start by making your marinade. Make the marinade by combining: soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, teriyaki sauce, minced onion, mirin, onion powder, ginger powder, garlic, and a little rice wine vinegar. Set one and a half cups aside in the fridge for later! Leave the rest out to add to the steak!

Place your steak on the cutting board and slice it into one inch strips. Next, marinate your steak overnight.

Place the steak in a ziplock bag; Add the marinade you made above. Zip the bag and place it in the fridge over night.

When you’re ready to make it, remove the steak from the fridge.


On the Instant Pot, turn the Sauté setting on. Add half of the steak strips, browning them for a few moments on both sides. Place them on a plate/bowl and put the rest of the steak into the pot to sauté. Repeat until they are all browned.
Then add the first batches back into the pot as well!

Next, add the extra cup and a half of marinade (The one you set aside in the fridge yesterday) into the pot as well. Add the broccoli. Switch to the Slow Cook setting and place the lid back on. Cook for an additional 20-30 minutes. Release the steam!

Let it cool for a few moments and Serve with rice!

Optional garnish: Green Onions & Sesame Seeds!
