Instant Pot Beef & Broccoli w/Ramen

IP Beef & BroccoliThis has quickly become one of my absolute FAVORITE Instant Pot recipes, so I thought it only right that I share it with you all.  My family loves Asian inspired dishes, but I don’t necessarily love the cost of ordering takeout for 7 people.  I found a recipe on Pinterest that I was able to adapt for my family and I hope that you all enjoy it, too!


•2 pounds of meat (chuck roast, rump roast or flank steak), cut into thin strips

•3 tablespoons olive oil (or oil of your choice)

•1 medium onion, diced

•1 cup beef broth

•2 tablespoons garlic, minced

•½ cup soy sauce (I prefer a low sodium soy sauce)

•3 tablespoons brown sugar

•1 bag frozen broccoli (or 1 pound of fresh broccoli if you prefer)

•1 teaspoon ground ginger

•2 tablespoons starch

*Optional – I use 3 packages of ramen noodles cooked according to package directions.  You will NOT use the flavor pouch that comes in the package.


1  Start by slicing the meat against the grain in thin slices. Dice the onion and cut the fresh broccoli.  (I bought precut meat and used frozen broccoli for this step)

2  Add about 3 tablespoons of oil to your pressure cooker and sauté the onions until they are translucent in color.

3  In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, beef broth, garlic and ginger.

4  Add the meat to the sautéed onions.

5  Add the liquid mixture to the meat in the pressure cooker and set it on manual high pressure for 10 minutes.  Then quick release the pressure valve.

6  Steam broccoli while the meat is cooking

7  Carefully remove about a ⅓ cup of the hot juices and add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Use a fork or a whisk to make sure the cornstarch is well combined.

8  Drain the water from the broccoli and mix it in to the beef mixture in your pressure cooker. The beef and broccoli is done and ready to serve.

9  My family really loves this particular dish served with ramen noodles, so I cook them while everything else is working and then add at the last minute.  But, you can absolutely serve this with rice or by itself.

I hope you enjoy this recipe!  Let me know if you’d like to see more content like this featured on my YouTube channel, or here on the blog!
