Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs flank steak or sirloin steak cut thin
  • 4 Tbs corn starch divided
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs sesame oil
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic
  • ½ tsp ginger finely minced

Sauce

  • ½ cup water
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 3 Tbs soy sauce
  • ¼ cup beef stock
  • 2 tbsp dark brown sugar

Garnish

  • Green onions sliced thin
  • Sesame seeds toasted

Optional

  • 2 cups Broccoli Florets

Instructions

  • Cut flank steak into thin strips, and coat in 2 Tbs corn starch
  • Turn instant pot on to saute.
  • Add oils, cornstarch coated flank steak, and garlic and ginger. Saute for 2-3 minutes, until meat is starting to brown.
  • Add in sauce ingredients (water, ground ginger, soy sauce, beef stock, brown sugar).
  • Secure lid for high pressure, set to sealed. Hit the "Keep Warm/Cancel" button to turn it off Saute
  • Then hit Manual, and manually set high pressure for 10 minutes.
  • After the 10 minutes is up, Quick release pressure. I like to put a rag over the valve, and turn it so it doesn't spit hot water out and burn someone.
  • Turn pot back to saute mode, and bring to a boil.
  • Whisk in additional 2 Tbs corn starch, get rid of all the lumps (you could make a slurry by removing some liquid from the pot and adding it to the corn starch, then add it back in), cook for 2-3 minutes allowing sauce to cook down some and thicken up.
  • Remove from pot, and serve over rice, garnished with sesame seeds and green onion.
  • Note: Can add broccoli during the last 2-3 minutes to get a light steam and have a complete meal with side.
