Servings 5 people
- 1 T olive oil
- 1-1 1/2 lbs. flank steak cut in half, then cut in strips against the grain!!
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 12 oz bottle Insta-Meal Sweet & Spicy Teriyaki Sauce
- 8-10 oz rice noodles I use Thai Kitchen Rice Noodles
- 1 fresh bell pepper, sliced any color
- 1 medium sized zucchini, sliced into bite size strips
- 6 green onions, white and light green parts
- 8 oz whole water chestnuts, drained and chopped
- fresh cilantro, chopped as garnish and flavor!!!!
- OPTIONAL ** lime wedges
Set the Instant Pot to saute mode, once it reads HOT, saute/brown the beef in 2-3 batches in the oil, just until browned. You do not need to cook the beef through.Pour the water into the empty, hot pot, and deglaze the bottom, scraping up any browned bits (leave those in the pot, that is flavor!)
Add the noodles to the pot. Lightly shake the noodles so they are mostly in the water, or at least touching the water. Be careful not to PRESS the noodles too much. You do not want them to burn on the bottom of the pot!
Place the browned flank steak pieces on top of the noodles. Pour the entire bottle of Sweet & Spicy Teriyaki Sauce over the beef and noodles. Place the lid on the pot and turn the pressure vent to seal. Set the Instant Pot to cook on pressure mode, on high, for 10 minutes.
After the cooking time is completed, do a quick release.
Quickly add all the veggies (peppers, zucchini, green onions, water chestnuts), and give the pot a stir.Place the lid back on the pot, close the pressure vent, letting the residual heat of the pot slightly soften the veggies for 5 minutes. You will not be turning the pot back on.You may need to do a little release of pressure to open the pot. Serve the Teriyaki Beef Noodles garnished with lots of fresh cilantro, and lime wedges (if using). If the sauce thickened quite a bit during cooking, add a couple tablespoons of water to the noodles before serving, this will loosen the sauce a little.
You may have a couple noodles stick or caramelize to the bottom of the pot, that is ok, just discard those few noodles before serving.
To reheat leftovers- add a little water to the noodles to loosen the sauce before reheating.
