Can we say hooray for another pressure cooker recipe?! This Instant Pot beef and broccoli is a take on my slow cooker beef and broccoli.
I love that recipe so much but some days I just don’t want to wait for it to cook all day long so the pressure cooker/Instant Pot is my best friend and makes this Instant Pot beef and broccoli recipe possible!
In as little as 35 minutes. Yessss!
Instant Pot Beef and Broccoli Recipe
I love cooking meat in the Instant Pot. If you cook them the right amount of time, they always come out so tender and falling apart.
However, if you cook them too long or short, they can come out chewy and tough or disintegrate.
I’ve played with the Instant Pot enough to know the right amount of time for most cuts of meat.
For cubed chuck roast, like what we are using for this recipe, you don’t need much time at all because it’s already in small pieces.
For larger roasts that you don’t break down, you will obviously need longer.
Why shouldn’t I add the broccoli in at the same time?
I blanched the broccoli separately because if you cook the broccoli in the Instant Pot, you will have disintegrated broccoli.
Like literally just the little green dots of the floret, LOL…it’s terrible. Don’t do that!
What if I don’t have cornstarch?
You can use arrowroot powder!
If you love pressure cooking, you will love this recipe! It’s bringing in the takeout except it’s not takeout at all!
Additionally, if you are loving pressure cooking, you should definitely try this Instant Pot Sausage and Herbed White Bean Soup or what about this scrumptious Korean Beef Ragu?!
Or, if you’re in the market for a pressure cooker or an all-in-one machine, my comprehensive review on the Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi is a post you don’t want to miss!
