Pressure Cooker Pepper Steak

Pepper steak is one of my favorite dishes but I was always disappointed with beef that was too tough. This recipe solves that problem! I've stored leftovers in one big container and also in individual portions for quick lunches.—Julie Rhine, Zelienople, Pennsylvania

    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 beef top round roast (3 pounds)
  • 1 cup water, divided
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 large green pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 8 cups hot cooked brown rice

Directions

  • In a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker, combine roast, 1/2 cup water, soy sauce and garlic. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 1 hour. When finished cooking, quick-release pressure. Add onion and peppers. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 2 minutes. When finished cooking, quick-release pressure. Press cancel. Remove beef to a cutting board.
  • Select saute setting and adjust for high heat; bring liquid to a boil. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch, sugar, ginger and remaining water until smooth; gradually stir into vegetable mixture. Cook and stir until sauce is thickened, 1-2 minutes.
  • Cut beef into slices. Stir gently into sauce; heat through. Serve with rice.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled beef mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary.

    My family loved this!! We had it over riced cauliflower instead of rice for a healthier twist. Will definitely make this again!!
