Step 1

For ultimate flavor brown the pieces of beef in your Instant Pot. You can do this by using the saute setting. Heat canola/vegetable oil in the pot. Brown one side of each of the beef strips for about one minute.. You may have to do this part in batches. Transfer the meat to a plate. Add the garlic into the pot and quickly saute the garlic for about one minute.

Step 2

Add in the beef broth and scrape the bottom of the pot so that nothing is sticking. Add in the sugar, sesame oil and soy sauce. Whisk. Add in the beef. For ultimate flavor you can turn off your pot completely and let it sit there for one hour and let the meat marinate in the sauce. But if you’re in a hurry you can cook right away.

Step 3

Secure the lid on the Instant Pot and press the manual or pressure cook button on high pressure. Make sure valve is set to “sealing.” Set the timer to 15 minutes. When the timer beeps indicating that 15 minutes is up, let the pot sit there for 10 minutes and then move the valve to “venting” to remove any pressure that remains.

Step 4

Remove the lid. Stir to break up any meat that is sticking together. Turn your Instant Pot to the saute setting. In a small bowl stir together the cornstarch and water until smooth. Stir the mixture into the Instant Pot. Your sauce will start to thicken in a few minutes.

Step 5

When sauce is thick, stir in the frozen broccoli. Let the broccoli warm through and get cooked for about 3 minutes.

Step 6

Serve beef, broccoli and sauce with rice or noodles. Garnish with sesame seeds.
