For the Sauce

  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic

  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

  • 1 cup beef broth

  • 1-2 teaspoons erythritol or monk fruit sweetener 

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  4. PRESS Cancel, then press MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK on HIGH. Set to 4 minutes and cover with lid. Turn the heating valve to the SEAL position.

  5. While beef is cooking place broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup water. Microwave 2 to 3 minutes until broccoli is tender. or steam in a large dutch oven for 5-10 min depending on preferred tenderness. 

  6. Quick release the pressure of the Instant Pot after the 4 mins beep.

  7. Carefully open the lid once steam has stopped.

  8. To thicken the sauce, in a small bowl, whisk together arrowroot starch with 1 tablespoon cold water and whisk into the sauce.
