Instant Pot Beef Bulgogi - healthy Beef Bulgogi recipe made quick and easy in a pressure cooker. Soy-free and refined sugar-free

If you’ve never tried Korean Beef Bulgogi, you’re in for a treat! It’s sticky-sweet with a little bit of heat. Paired with your choice of cauliflower rice or white rice, the meal is perfectly satisfying!

Traditionally made with soy sauce, brown sugar, canola oil, ginger, and gochugang, we’re swapping out some of the ingredients to make the recipe paleo-friendly. I use coconut aminos in place of soy sauce, coconut sugar in place of brown sugar, and sesame oil in place of canola. 

The end result is a delicious, mouth-watering Korean beef that you’d never guess isn’t completely authentic!

Aside from the fact that this paleo Korean beef is completely magical, the best part about the recipe is it is so easy to prepare in a pressure cooker! I used my Crock-Pot® 10-Quart Express Pressure Cooker to prepare the recipe, which requires hardly any effort or time at all! You can find Crock-Pot® products at Target locations and Target.com

How to Make Pressure Cooker Paleo Bulgogi Beef:

Add the beef broth, coconut aminos, coconut sugar, pure maple syrup, garlic, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger, and gochugang to a bowl and stir well until combined.
Plug in your pressure cooker and add the chopped beef.

Sear the beef in the pressure cooker

Pour the sauce over the beef and stir. Secure the lid, press Manual Pressure, and set the time to 15 minutes (which ends up being closer to 25 minutes total). Leave the steam release valve sealed.

Pour broth into the pressure cooker with the beef

Once the pressure cooker has finished its cycle, open the lid and add in the tapioca flour and sesame seeds. Press the Sauté button and cook at a boil, stirring occasionally, until sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes.

Add the tapioca flour to make a thick sauce 

Pressure cook the beef bulgogi then stir

Serve beef with chopped green onion and choice of steamed white rice, coconut rice, or cauliflower rice.
