Cooking Tips

  1. Choose the Right Cut: Opt for a well-marbled and tender cut, like London Broil or sirloin, for the juiciest and flavorful steak bites.
  2. Uniform Size for Even Cooking: Cut the steak into uniform bite-sized pieces to ensure even cooking. This prevents some pieces from being overcooked while others remain undercooked.
  3. Use a Natural Release: After pressure cooking, allow the Instant Pot to release pressure naturally for a few minutes. This helps the steak bites remain juicy and tender, preventing them from drying out.
  4. Add Vegetables Smartly: If incorporating veggies like asparagus, add them after pressure cooking or use the Instant Pot’s sauté function. This keeps them crisp and vibrant, complementing the steak bites perfectly.

Variations

  • Teriyaki Glazed Steak Bites: Coat the steak bites in a flavorful teriyaki sauce for a sweet and savory twist.
  • Cajun Spice Steak Bites: Add a kick of spice with Cajun seasoning for a bold and zesty flavor profile.
  • Balsamic and Rosemary Infused Steak Bites: Marinate the steak bites in a mixture of balsamic vinegar and fresh rosemary for a sophisticated and aromatic touch.
  • Lemon Garlic Butter Steak Bites: Toss the steak bites in a luscious combination of melted butter, minced garlic, and fresh lemon juice for a burst of citrusy goodness.

These variations offer a range of flavors, allowing you to customize your Instant Pot steak bites to suit your taste preferences or the occasion. Enjoy experimenting with different seasonings and marinades!

You can serve honey garlic steak bites with several side dishes such as: 

Garlic Mashed Potatoes: Creamy mashed potatoes infused with garlic make for a classic and comforting side dish.

Storage & Reheating Instructions?

Cool Before Storage:

  • Allow the Instant Pot steak bites to cool to room temperature before storing them. This prevents condensation and helps maintain their texture.

Refrigeration Time:

  • Place the airtight containers in the refrigerator within two hours of cooking to minimize the risk of bacterial growth.

Consume Within 3-4 Days:

  • Enjoy the leftovers within 3-4 days for the best quality. If you have a larger batch, consider freezing the extras for longer storage.

  1. Hi. I can’t wait to try the steak bites….. But my question is, I have a Farberware instant pot. Mine doesn’t say HI pressure. So how would i know how to set it

    1. The Faberware instant pot has a high pressure mode according to the manual. Do you still have the instructions? I don’t personally have one of these brands but if you can’t find the button, i’d just cook on regular!

    1. I would add an extra two minutes for an extra steak but if you’re adding a whole heap more then that would change the cooking times quite a bit.

  2. This recipe looks amazing. Will definitely be trying this, this weekend. perfect treat after putting up the Christmas decorations. Twelve days of Christmas

  3. Cooked this dish yesterday for lunch and the results was phenomenal…husband said it’s the best lunch I ever cooked! The meat was tasty, tender and juicy. Only changes I made was adding a tsp of minced ginger to sauté the beef, and a dash of sesame oil before serving. Excellent recipe…quick, simple and easy to prepare.

  4. I love how there’s very few ingredients used in this recipe. Would love to try this out one day! Thanks again for posting.

  5. Looks so fabulous to eat! How much and how many pounds of London broil steak? Im going to make it asap once you replied!

    1. One steak weighs 1 to 2 lb., serving 3 to 4. Either 1 or 2 lb will cook the same depending on how much meat you want to eat.
