Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place beef and onion in a 6-quart multifunction electric or stove-top pressure cooker. Stir in water, coconut aminos, salt, ginger, and pepper.

  • Lock lid in place. Set electric cooker on high pressure to cook 7 minutes. For stove-top cooker, bring up to pressure over medium-high; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 7 minutes. Remove from heat. For both models, immediately release pressure. Open lid carefully.

  • Using a slotted spoon, remove beef and onion; keep warm. Add broccoli to pressure cooker. For electric cooker, use sauté setting to cook 5 to 8 minutes or until crisp-tender. For stove-top cooker, simmer, uncovered, over medium 5 to 8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Using slotted spoon, add broccoli to beef and onion. If desired, continue simmering liquid 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened. Spoon sauce over beef mixture. Top with sesame seeds.
