This Instant Pot peach crisp dessert is super easy to make and sure to hit the spot at all your holiday festivities.
What is the Difference Between Peach Cobbler and Peach Crisp?
One thing you need to know before you start this recipe is that it is not a peach cobbler. I know these two words can get mingled together, but peach cobbler and peach crisp are two different things. Here’s the difference!
Cobbler: A cobbler is a fruit dessert with a thick dropped biscuit or pie dough topping. It is believed that the name came from the biscuit topping’s resemblance to cobblestones.
Crisp: A crisp is a fruit dessert with a crisp and crunchy layer of ingredients as the topping. This could include sugar, butter, oats, nuts, and spice.
Basically, one is crispy and one is not. This Instant Pot peach crisp is crispy.

This Instant Pot Recipe is good to serve to your family at dinner.
- 2/3 cup water
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons Chinese cooking wine
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 1 teaspoon cayenne
- 2 lb round strips (see notes)
- 5 tablespoons vegetable oil, separated
- 4 cups broccoli florets
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
- 1/4 cup green onion, sliced (optional)
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds to garnish (optional)
Mix together all ingredients for the sauce. You can pour into a medium size bowl, and whisk well. Or place in a mason jar, and shake well.
Put your meat in a medium sized bowl. Pour about ¼ of the sauce mixture over the meat. Allow it to marinate at least 30 minutes; longer if you have the time. This will allow your meat to be tender and flavorful.
Turn your Instant Pot on to “sauté mode”. Once it become hot, pour in your oil, and all of the broccoli florets. You can add fresh or frozen. Frozen florets should take about 8 minutes to cook down, where fresh should take about 4 minutes. You might also prefer them more raw, or more cooked. Cook until you reach desired consistency. Once they are as tender as you like, remove, and set aside.
With your Instant Pot still on Sauté mode, add 2 more TBSP of oil, garlic, ginger, and your meat. I suggest placing about 1/3 of the meat in at a time so it doesn’t become crowded in the pot. Brown each portion until each portion is cooked thoroughly.
After all of the meat is browned, add in the rest of your sauce mixture. Mix well.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot, and close the valve. Set the IP to High Pressure at 15 minutes.
Once the time is up, allow the pressure to naturally release for 5 minutes, then manually release.
Open the IP, and add in the broccoli. Mix well so the sauce is coated on the florets as well as the meat.
Serve with green onions and/or sesame over a bed of rice or noodles.
