  • 1 lb sirloin steak cubed
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup beef broth

For the sauce

  • 4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp chili oil (like Lee Kum Chiu Chow Chili Oil)
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp ginger, freshly grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp Chinese cooking wine (like mirin)
  • 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2-3 cups cooked rice


  • red chili flakes
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • green onion, sliced


  • Cut the beef and broccoli into bite sized pieces.
  • Mix the sauce ingredients, except the cornstarch, in a small bowl. Add 1 tbsp of the sauce to the beef. Stir to coat and set aside to marinate.
  • Set the Instant Pot to saute. Add the cooking oil. When hot, add the broccoli and saute, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Remove the broccoli from the pot. Cancel saute mode.
  • Add the beef to the Instant Pot, along with 1/2 cup chicken broth. Lock the lid and turn the vent to sealing. Using the pressure cook button, set the Instant Pot to 4 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add the cornstarch to the remaining sauce and stir it until smooth.
  • When the time is up, do a manual release of pressure and remove the lid.
  • Press saute mode again and add the broccoli back to the pot.
  • Pour the sauce over the beef and broccoli. Stir well and allow the sauce to thicken for about 3 minutes. Turn off the Instant Pot. Serve over rice, if desired.
