Gluten-Free Instant Pot Beef Broccoli

In our house, we do a lot of Gluten-Free Instant Pot Beef Broccoli. It's literally one of our favorites--right next to other Asian meals that are heavy on the yum. For whatever reason, my kids love broccoli served this way--so maybe yours will too.

Servings 4


  • lbs. beef flank steak cut into strips
  • c. beef stock
  • 3-4 cloves garlic finely minced
  • ½ c. gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 T. honey
  • 2 T. toasted sesame oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 T. arrowroot
  • 1 14- oz. bag frozen broccoli florets
  • 3 c. white rice cooked
  • 1 T. toasted sesame seeds optional


  1. Add flank steak to Instant Pot.
  2. In a medium glass bowl, whisk beef stock, garlic, soy sauce, honey, and sesame oil. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Pour mixture on top of beef.
  3. Cover Instant Pot, lock lid, and seal vent.
  4. Cook on "Manual/High" for 10 minutes. Quick release once done cooking.
  5. Remove ¼ cup of liquid and stir in the arrowroot. You could also substitute the arrowroot for 2 T. of cornstarch. Use a fork or whisk to combine it together. Add the mixture back into the pressure cooker and stir. You will notice the liquid begin to thicken as it sits.
  6. Add the broccoli (frozen or fresh) to a microwave safe bowl with 1 cup of water. Microwave on high for for five minutes.
  7. Drain and stir broccoli into the beef mixture.
  8. Serve over white rice and enjoy!
