One of my favourite items to order at a Chinese restaurant is beef and broccoli. The salty sweet sauce, and blend of meat and bright green broccoli makes my mouth water just thinking of it. Thing is, you can make an EASY version of this classic from home, making it easier and more affordable.

When choosing meat for this recipe, I suggest a boneless chunk roast cut into strips, as it’ll become so tender when pressure cooked. As a warning, other stir-fry cuts intended for quick searing might become tough when pressure cooked.

One thing that is crucial to remember, is to use Low Sodium Soy Sauce. Any others and your dish will be too salty.
 

What to serve with Beef and Broccoli?

 
We served ours with the all-time favourite, rice. Jasmine rice to be exact. Yet, you could switch things up based on preference or diet and go with a ramen noodle or Cauliflower Fried Rice.

We had leftovers of this dish, and they tasted so good! So feel free to double the recipe {not the pressure cooker time}, and make individual servings for work and school lunches.

For other amazing Asian dishes to try at home, I suggest these Asian Marinated Beef Kabobs, and this Oriental Chicken Salad.

Enjoy the recipe!

  • 3/4 cup low sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch

  2. Add in the broth, soy sauce and brown sugar. Stir to dissolve sugar then turn off the saute mode.
  3. Secure and seal the Instant Pot lid and cook for 15 minutes at high pressure
  4. While the Instant Pot cooks, cook the broccoli {adding in 1 cup of water with it} for 3-4 minutes in the microwave, or until tender
  5. This is also the time to start cooking your rice or other preferred side dish to your meal
  6. When the instant Pot is done, manually release the pressure by carefully turning the release knob and venting. 
  7. Take off the instant Pot lid and remove about 1/2 of the liquid, into a small bowl. Mix the cornstarch into it until smooth.
  8. Return reserve to post and saute again for about 5 minutes, so the sauce thickens up. Turn off saute mode, and toss broccoli into the pot and stir until coated. 
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy!
