  • 2 lbs Flank Steak cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 Onion Sliced
  • 1 cup Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Water


  • Place the beef in a 6 quart electric pressure cooker.
  • Place the sliced onions on top and pour the teriyaki sauce and water over the top of the beef.
  • Seal the instant pot and cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.
  • After the cook time, allow the instant pot to sit for 15 minutes (this is called a natural release) to gradually release the pressure from the instant pot. After this time, if the pressure vent is not all the way up, move the valve on the lid to the venting position to release all the remaining pressure from the instant pot.
  • Serve warm over rice and enjoy!


You can also use diced up round steak, diced up beef roast or stew meat for this recipe. 
If you would like a thicker sauce, combine 2 Tbsp of Cornstarch with 1/4 cup of water and stir this mixture into the instant pot.
