    1. I was wondering the same thing. Making it right now, and I did sauté with beef only because I didn’t see anywhere else to do it. Fingers crossed! (Also my first ever IP recipe!)

  1. So it’s a 3 part recipe and the beef is cooked first and separate from the other steps, so it’s held out after cooking right? Also, I’m adding the cornstarch mix into the liquid while the broccoli is still in it, or removing the broccoli first? Sorry for needing so much extra info lol! It looks yummy!

    1. Hey April,

      In fact, we are doing all in the same pot, without removing beef or broccoli.
      Cooking beef >> Add broccoli while the beef still inside >> cooking it >> add cornstarch while all the ingredients still inside and stir.

      Hope it helps 🙂

  2. Made it last night…but my broccoli disintegrated in the pot. I was a few minutes delayed on relieving the pressure after the 2 minute cook with the broccoli. The additional pressure must have destroyed the broccoli….taste is really good but it doesn’t look as good.

  3. A great recipe, and so easy! My husband added it to our master list of recipes that we consult when meal planning — a high compliment! Thank you for sharing it.

    1. Oh really sorry about it… at least the taste was good 🙂
      Anyway next time cut the broccoli into bigger pieces and\or cook it for only 1 minutes.

  4. I need to know what the sodium content is. I can’t make anything high in salt. Some recipes I can substitute salt Free for salted intend such as the broth.

  5. This was my second attempt at using the instant pot. First time was a fail. This was absolutely delicious and I figured out what I did wrong the first time! I’m hooked!

  6. I made this earlier in the week and in was an amazing success. Everyone raved about it and asked me to make sure I make it again. Thanks for the great recipe.
