Chinese Pepper Steak with Onion


  • 1.5 lb beef strips (I used thinly sliced round steaks and cut them into strips)
  • 1 green bell pepper, cutting to thick tranches
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into thick slices
  • 1/2 thick sliced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Methods :

Place beef, peppers and onions in an electric pressure cooker.

Adding season, brown sugar & soy sauce on beef / peppers.

Pour beef broth into Instant Pot.

Stir to combine.

Add the lid and make sure it is tightly closed. Set pressure to high for 15 min.

When done for a quick release (or if you want the steak to fall apart, do a natural release)

Remove the cover and press the Cancel button. Then switch the pressure cooker to sauté mode.

In a separate small bowl, mix 1/4 cup cold water with a tablespoon of cornstarch together. Then stir the pepper steak mixture into the Instant Pot.
