  • Steam or boil 1 lb. of broccoli florets (about 2⅔ cups) for 2 to 3 minutes. The broccoli should be tender, but still slightly crisp.
    Carefully quick release the pressure when 10 minutes is up. Always take caution and wear an oven mitt or use a dish towel when quick-releasing steam from the Instant Pot.
    If using, combine ½ tablespoon arrowroot powder with just a little cold water. Add it to the beef mixture and stir. The sauce will start thickening.

Instead of chili pepper, you can serve the beef and broccoli with some keto-friendly hot sauce on the side. This is a delicious combination!
