Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 32 minutes
Marinade 12 hours
Servings 4


  • 3 T. soy sauce or worcestershire sauce
  • 4 T. oil
  • 2 T. honey
  • 2 T. lime juice
  • ½ t. garlic powder
  • ½ t. onion powder
  • 2 t. fresh ginger finely minced
  • 1 t. crushed red pepper flakes
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • lbs. stew beef or chuck roast cubed
  • c. water or beef broth
  • 1 c. long-grain brown rice rinsed and drained
  • 3 T. fresh parsley finely chopped


  1. When making this easy recipe, you want to make a simple marinade first. Combine soy sauce, 2 T oil, honey, lime juice, garlic powder, onion powder, fresh ginger, and red pepper flakes in a glass or other non-reactive bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Set aside.

  2. Place the beef into a sealable plastic bag and pour the marinade on top. Seal and gently turn the bag to thoroughly coat the beef. Marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, or place in the refrigerator overnight. Turn bag occasionally for even distribution of the marinade.
  3. To prepare this beef tips recipe, add 2 T of oil to the Instant Pot and use the saute setting. Adjust the heat setting to high. Once hot, transfer the beef cubes to the Instant Pot and discard the remaining marinade. Brown the meat on all sides, approximately 3-4 minutes. Add the beef broth and scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the container.

  4. Turn Instant Pot off and add brown rice. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Add lid and securely lock. Flip the pressure value to the “Sealing” position and press the “Manual” button. Adjust setting to high and set cook time for 20 to 22 minutes. After a brief pause, the Instant Pot will automatically start building pressure.

  5. When cook time is complete, do a natural release for 10 to 15 minutes, and then do a quick release for any remaining pressure.

  6. Carefully remove lid and fluff the rice with a fork. Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with chopped parsley, if desired. Serve immediately with your favorite sides. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Tip: For best results, marinate the beef the night before for the meat to develop more flavor before it is pressure cooked.
