Teriyaki Beef Noodle Bowl {Pressure Cooker}

Sticky sweet and spicy teriyaki sauce comes together with steak and noodles to make the ultimate one pot dinner!


Ingredients:

  • 1 T olive oil

  • 1-1 1/2 lbs. flank steak cut in half, then cut in strips against the grain- it is very important for the tenderness of the beef that you cut against the grain!!

  • 1 1/2 cups water

  • 1 12 oz bottle Insta-Meal Sweet & Spicy Teriyaki Sauce

  • 8-10 oz rice noodles

  • 1 fresh bell pepper (any color), sliced

  • 1 medium sized zucchini, sliced into bite size strips

  • 6 green onions, white and light green parts chopped

  • 8 oz whole water chestnuts, drained and roughly chopped

  • fresh cilantro, chopped 

  • OPTIONAL ** lime wedges

Directions:

  1. Set your Electric Pressure Cooker to saute mode, once it reads HOT, saute/brown the beef in 2-3 batches in the olive oil. You do not need to cook the beef through.

  2. Pour all the water into the empty, hot pot, and deglaze the bottom, scraping up any browned bits (leave those in the pot, that is flavor!).

  3. Add the rice noodles to the pot. Lightly shake the noodles so they are mostly in the water, or at least touching the water. Be careful not to PRESS the noodles too much. You do not want them to burn on the bottom of the pot!

  4. Place the browned flank steak pieces on top of the noodles. Pour the entire bottle of Sweet & Spicy Teriyaki Sauce over the beef and noodles. 

  5. Place the lid on and turn the pressure valve to "seal". Set the pressure cooker to cook on pressure mode, on high, for 10 minutes.

  6. After the cooking time is completed, do a quick release by turning the pressure valve to "vent".

  7. Quickly add all the veggies (peppers, zucchini, water chestnuts), and give the pot a stir.

  8. Place the lid back on the pot, close the pressure vent (but DO NOT set the pot for additional cooking time), you are simply letting the residual heat of the pot slightly soften the veggies for 5 minutes. Note: You may need to do another release of pressure to open the pot. 

  9. Serve the Teriyaki Beef Noodles garnished with fresh chopped cilantro, and lime wedges (if using). 

Notes:

  • You may have a couple noodles stick or caramelize to the bottom of the pot, that is ok, just discard those few hard noodles before serving.
