Kelly, Just a Taste shared a picture of her Mongolian Beef recipe on Facebook and it looked fantastic. I had a request for a non-spicy Mongolian Beef pressure cooker recipe, so that was all the push I needed to turn her stir fry recipe in to a pressure cooker recipe.

Making Mongolian Beef in an Instant Pot

An Instant Pot is one of the most popular brands of electric pressure cookers. They are easy to use and your Instant Pot can help you create this delicious Mongolian Beef!

The original recipe is coated with cornstarch and quickly stir fried. In the pressure cooker, it’s best to add thickeners after you cook the beef, so you won’t get a crisp coating in the pressure cooker, but the beef will be much more tender with plenty of rich, flavorful sauce.

This recipe was a big hit with my family. It’s super easy to make and will definitely be making another appearance at our house soon.
