Instant Pot Mongolian Beef

You only get one chance a night to really make your tastebuds throw a little party and be happy you made what you worked so hard for. This Instant Pot Mongolian Beef is your chance tonight. This recipe is definitely one of the best Asian food recipes I've had in a long time. 

Servings 4


  • lbs. beef flank steak cut into strips
  • c. beef stock
  • 3-4 cloves garlic finely minced
  • ½ c. soy sauce
  • 1 T. honey
  • 2 T. toasted sesame oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 T. arrowroot
  • 3 c. 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. Serve over white rice or brown rice and enjoy!
