Thank you so much for this recipe! It was delish and easy to follow. I’m a long time ‘mom chef,’ but new to Instantpot/pressure cooking. Just stunned that I prepared flank steak in such a short time period that was tender and SO flavorful! I happened to have sesame seeds and tossed those on, once plated. It really is a gorgeous dish on top of delish! This was restaurant worthy for sure, thank you again. 🙂
Thanks for the great recipe after working a 12 hour day, I came home and cooked this up for myself and hubby. Was delicious, I admit I wouldn’t typically cook a recipe with 1.5 cups of sugar but it makes the best sauce, beef was super tender and full of flavor. I cooked up with some jasmin rice and fresh steamed broccoli. Thank you!
I just got my instant pot today and your recipe was the first thing I tried. AMAZING ! I customized it a little to our taste (we like a little spicy with our sweet) but this is just spot on. Flank steak in 12 minutes ! Who knew ! Thank you thank you !
Made this tonight. My first IP recipe. It. Was. Amazing!!! Hubs had two helpings. Instructions were great. I sliced the meat yesterday to save some time after work today. The longest part was browning the steak on sauté in the IP. This will become a regular at our house. I felt so fancy!! Thank you!
Made this for dinner a couple of nights ago. It was a HUGE hit! So glad I found this recipe. Going to search for more recipes from Aunt Bee!
This was amazing! Thanks so much for sharing this super tasty dish! It’s being add to our meal rotations!
I am SO excited about this recipe! For several reasons but mainly because it is adapted from the first recipe I ever blogged! We absolutely LOVE making Chinese food at home. My whole family said it was one of the best things they have ever eaten and I AGREE! We absolutely LOVED IT! I was blown away by how tender the meat was after only 12 minutes of pressure cooking. It really is like magic!
