Broccoli   and  Beef recipe

To get a few additional servings, you could add 2 pounds of flank steak. You

can even try adding ½ tablespoon of fish sauce to the sauce or more of red

pepper flakes, gingers, or black pepper to taste.


½ cup coconut aminos

2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil

¾ cup beef broth

2–3 crowns broccoli; broken into florets

1 ½ pounds flank steak, sliced thinly against the grain

½ tablespoon ginger, grated

2 tablespoons sesame oil

½ teaspoon onion powder

1 tablespoon garlic, minced

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon arrowroot flour

¼ teaspoon each of red pepper flakes & salt

To Garnish:

Green onions, chopped

Sesame seeds


1. Preheat your Instant pot by pressing the sauté feature. Once the word HOT appears; immediately add and heat up the olive or avocado oil.

2. Once the oil starts sizzling; work in batches & sear the sliced beef half a minute to a minute per side; ensure that you don’t overcook or overcrowd. Once browned; transfer the pieces to a large plate

3. Once the entire beef is browned & you have transferred the pieces on the plate; immediately add the minced garlic to your instant pot & sauté for a minute, until turn fragrant.

4. Add in the beef broth, onion powder, coconut aminos, red pepper flakes, ginger, sesame oil, pepper, and salt. Add beef & juices from the plate to your instant pot.

5. Cover & secure the lid to its place. Pressure cook for 10 minutes, on manual setting. Wait for 10 minutes and let the pressure to release naturally then perform a quick release feature to get rid of the leftover pressure.

6. While you are cooking the beef & sauce; place the broccoli florets in a microwave safe dish filled with approximately ¾ of water. Microwave until lightly steamed, for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain the water & set aside.

7. Once beef is done; carefully remove the lid and combine it with the cooked broccoli; press the “sauté” feature of your Instant pot again.

8. Slowly add in the arrowroot flour; whisk into the liquid using a fork. As the sauce thickens; continue to stir the ingredients.

9. Remove the broccoli and beef using a large slotted spoon & arrange in meal prep containers or a large serving dish. Continue to simmer the leftover liquid until thickened.

10. Once it’s bubbling and thick, pour the prepared sauce on top of broccoli and beef.

11. Garnish with green onions, sesame seeds or more of red pepper flakes. 

Serve hot & enjoy.
