Beef & Broccoli Over Rice

30 Minute Instant Pot Meal

My picture is anything but fancy – LOL. Working mom over here trying to make some delicious meals and save my sanity so paper plates for ALL! I love being able to just throw away (recycle) the plates. I know it is not eco-friendly so much as washing dishes BUT I need to get back in to regular meals. Once I have a schedule established then we will resume normal dish using. 

This is a meal similar to my Mongolian Beef recipe – which is another hit in our house. I love the added ingredient of broccoli and the different flavors that are brought out with this meal.


2 lbs boneless beef steaks, cut in thin strips
1 onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can beef broth
1 cup soy sauce
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 T sesame oil (I just used canola oil…)
3 T cornstarch
3 T water
2 broccoli floret heads, chopped
1/4 cup water
Instant Rice, you decide servings!


  1. Add oil (enough to cover the bottom of the Instant Pot) and brown meat in batches on saute setting. Do not overcrowd and remove once browned.
  2. Once all meat is browned and removed, add onions and garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add back meat and any juices.
  4. Turn off Instant Pot and turn back on to manual for 10 minutes.
  5. While meat is cooking in Instant Pot – add chopped broccoli to microwave safe bowl and add 1/4 cup water. Cook in microwave for 4 minutes, adding an additional minute if not tender enough.
  6. Cook instant rice at this time,
  7. Once timer is done on Instant Pot, quick release pressure. Mix together 3 T cornstarch and 3 T water, add to Instant Pot and continue stirring until thickened.
  8. Enjoy!
