  • instant pot or pressure cooker



  • Turn Instant Pot to saute HIGH. Add olive oil to pot.
  • Salt and pepper beef strips and add to instant pot ½ at a time. Do not crowd or they won't brown. Cook for a few minutes until you get some good browning. Remove from pot and cook next batch.
  • Once beef is done add garlic to pot and cook for one minute. Add beef broth, tamari, maple syrup and sesame oil. Give it a quick stir and add beef and juices.
  • Set pot to high pressure and sealed and use the manual button to cook it for 10 minutes.
  • While the beef cooks microwave the broccoli in a microwave safe bowl with ½ cup water for about 5 minutes. Poke with a fork to check tenderness.
  • Whisk cornstarch and water in a small bowl until combined.
  • When timer goes off indicating the 10 minutes is up just let the pot sit there for 10 minutes and then do a manual release. Use a dishtowel to to turn the knob to venting.
  • Turn the pot to saute and add the cornstarch mixture. Stir well to coat the meat. Add the steamed broccoli in and stir again. Cook for a minute or two until saue thickens and bit and the broccoli warms up.
  • Serve with white rice or for a healthier option brown rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice.


Gluten free notes:
Tamari is a gluten free substitute for soy sauce.
Make sure your beef broth is gluten free. I like Pacific.
