Quick, are you looking for a quick, easy and delicious dinner idea? If you have an electric pressure cooker, you already know how fabulous they are for speeding up the dinner process. What you may not realize is how wonderful they are for cooking steak.
Slow roasting steak has been the preferred method for cooking steaks because the slow and low heat breaks down the proteins in meat so that you end up with a tender forkful. Pressure cookers mock that same process by trapping in the moisture and cooking steak in a fraction of the time. Delicious steak + faster = less crankiness around the dinner table.
This Instant Pot (or whichever electric pressure cooker brand you own) recipe combines several layers of flavor with butter, oil, Dijon mustard and a balsamic glaze as a coating for the sirloin steak bites. Think of it as an Italian barbecue sauce. Add the simplest of seasonings and slices of garlic and a dinner worthy to serve to company is ready in no time.
