Instant Pot Asian Beef and Rice

Instant Pot Asian Beef and Rice

You definitely need to try this amazing Asian beef and rice. There is quite a bit of variation when it comes to cooking rice in an Instant Pot because the correct settings and cooking times vary from one type of rice to another.

Per the manufacturer, the “Rice” setting is intended for white or parboiled rice only. For the long-grain brown rice used in this recipe, use the “Manual” setting on high and set the cooking time to 22-25 minutes, “depending on your preferences and any local issues, like high elevation.”

This beef and rice recipe suggests 22 minutes as the active cooking time, but feel free to extend this time if you prefer softer rice. In addition, this version includes a little more liquid than the 1:1 ratio recommended by the manufacturer to account for the added ingredients.

Ingredients for this Recipe :

  • 1½ lbs. stew beef, cubed
  • 1¼ cup water or beef broth
  • 1 cup long-grain brown rice, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tbsp gluten-free soy sauce or coconut amino
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil, divided
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, finely minced
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Tip :

For best results, marinate the beef the night before for the meat to develop more flavor.

How to Make Instant Pot Asian Beef and Rice :

Step 1 :

Combine soy sauce, 2 tablespoons sesame oil, honey, lime juice, garlic powder, onion powder, fresh ginger, and red pepper flakes in a glass or other non-reactive bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Set aside.

Step 2 :

Place the beef cubes into a sealable plastic bag and pour the marinade on top. Seal and gently turn the bag to thoroughly coat the beef. Marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, or place in the refrigerator overnight. Turn bag occasionally for even distribution of the marinade.

Step 3 :

To prepare, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of sesame oil to Instant Pot and press the “Sauté” button. Adjust the heat setting to high. Once hot, transfer the beef cubes to the Instant Pot and discard the remaining marinade. Brown the beef on all sides, approximately 3-4 minutes. Add the beef broth and scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the container.

Step 4 :

Turn Instant Pot off and add brown rice. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Add lid and securely lock. Flip the pressure value to the “Sealing” position and press the “Manual” button. Adjust setting to high and set cook time for 22 minutes. After a brief pause, the Instant Pot will automatically start building pressure.

Step 5 :

When cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, and then do a quick release for any remaining pressure.

Step 6 :

Carefully remove the lid and fluff the rice with a fork. Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and chopped parsley, if desired. Serve this Asian beef rice immediately with a salad or with your favorite sides. Enjoy this instant pot beef rice!
