Ingredients

Instructions 

  • First, combine all seasonings in a small bowl.
  • Pat steaks dry with paper towels. Rub seasonings all over both sides of steaks.
  • Press sauté on Instant Pot. Add olive oil to pot.
  • Once oil is hot, place steaks in pot. Sear for 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  • Press cancel. Use tongs to remove steak from pot onto plate.
  • Pour 1 cup water down into pot and scrape bottom of pot with wooden spoon to deglaze it.
  • Place trivet inside pot. Place steaks on top of trivet.
  • Secure lid and turn vent to sealing. Pressure cook on high for 3 minutes for medium rare, up to 12 minutes for well done.
  • When timer goes off, carefully turn valve to venting and manually release pressure.
  • Finally, carefully remove steaks from pot. Allow steaks to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into to lock in those juices.

Notes

  • Any cut of meat will work, but I have had success with both ribeyes and sirloins.
  • Feel free to replace seasonings with Montreal seasoning or your favorite seasoning mix.
  • After steak has seared on both sides, add water and scrape bottom of pot with wooden spoon to deglaze pot.  This helps to prevent burning.
  • Pressure cook steaks for 3 minutes for medium rare, up to 12 minutes for well done.
  • Allow steak to rest for 5 minutes after cooking.  This helps keep the steak juicy.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • My pressure cooker only took 5 minutes to come to pressure.
