Flank and bottom round steaks are inexpensive cuts that become deliciously tender in the slow cooker. They're great from a pressure cooker, too!

I did not make any changes to the recipe. This is wonderful. My husband is on a low carb diet and loves this. It is one we can all eat. Definitely a keeper.

My husband and I made the Instant Pot version for tonight’s meal. We loved the recipe and will make it again. The only thing we will change, is to add a little more corn starch slurry. We did not experience a burned pot, quite the opposite, one of the easiest cleanups in ages. Please post more IP recipes.

Sounded good, but was a disaster!!! I used a pressure cooker, following the directions, and the bottom of the cooker was a charred mess. Perhaps the hoisin and /or sugar was the culprit. However the flank steak was nicely done. To salvage the dish I mixed some corn starch slurry, beef broth, and soy sauce to cook the broccoli, and then added the cooked flank steak.
