Instant Pot Beef and Broccoli is a very easy and delicious recipe that can be made in the Instant Pot. A weeknight staple that can be served with rice or over noodles.
Add vegetable oil, once the oil is hot, add the beef in one layer (in batches), do not move or turn the beef for about 2 minutes to make sure it gets a nice sear on one side (this is important). Stir the beef and sauté for 2 minutes on the other side. Remove, set aside on a plate covered in foil and brown another batch of beef and set aside.
Once done with browning the beef, add 1/4 cup of water to the pot to deglaze it. Using wooden spoon, try to get any bits and pieces that stuck to the bottom of the pot.
Close lid and pressure cook on High Pressure for 10 minutes + 10 minutes Natural Release. After 10 minutes of NPR, turn off the Instant Pot. Release the remaining pressure. Open the lid.
I bought frozen broccoli that can be steamed directly in the bag in the microwave. You can also steam them in a microwave safe bowl: Put all the broccoli in microwave-safe bowl and add 2-3 tablespoons of water per about 1 lb of broccoli. Cover with a lid, preferably should be covered tightly to keep the steam inside the bowl. Microwave for 3-4 minutes. If you are not sure of your microwave power, try at 2 1/2 minutes if the broccoli are done, if needed, cover back and microwave more. Same method can be used to steam fresh broccoli. Make sure you cut them into smaller florets before adding them to the bowl.
