        1. The liquid in this recipe is 1/2 cup of beef broth. It is added to the pot in the 3rd step of the recipe. You can drain the excess liquid at the end or use it as a sauce or fortified beef broth.

      1. You sauté with the lid off, since you want the steak to brown nicely in this step. If the lid is on, it would steam and wouldn’t brown as well.

    1. The name of recipe is Herbed Garlic Butter Steak. Butter and herbs are used in the Cooking process. No extra herb butter is required in this dish.

  1. Outside of being so simple that even I look good, this is just spiffy, tasty and good lookin’ – served with steamed & buttered cauliflower made the perfect meal for us. Thanks much, I’ve got a lot more on your that entice me.

  2. This looks amazing! I would like for mine to be medium well though. How long do you recommend I pressure cook it? As I still want the tenderness lol.

  3. This looks so delish! Although I would like mine to be medium well. How long do you recommend I cook for on high pressure? I want it just slightly pink.

  4. Absolutely delicious! I used tri tip steak that was on sale and it fed 5 people. Cooked on high pressure for 15 mins with 17 min natural release, and it was melt in your mouth scrumptious. Will use this recipe again.

  5. I’m just starting out with my instant pot and now that we are in lockdown it’s going to be fun trying all your recipes. Very thankful I found you !!!!

  6. I’m just starting out eating Carnivore, and want a delicious, fast way to cook steak, fish. Is meat able to cook rare but with a crispy exterior in an Instant Pot, much like grilled food?

    1. Unfortunately no, the Instant Pot probably isn’t the best option for that. It is possible to cook rare but the exterior will not be crispy. You could cook it rare and finish it on the grill for a crispy exterior, but you’d likely be better off just grilling. The Instant Pot is better for long, tender braises.

    1. Yes, absolutely! As long as they fit in a single layer, and be sure not to have them too close together or they won’t brown as well.
