Inspired by Japanese Hibachi, this Instant Pot Steak and Mushrooms is saucy, full of flavour, and tender! Step by step video instructions down below!
Instant Pot Steak and Mushrooms (aka Instant Pot Hibachi Steak)
I know – some of y’all are ride or die when it comes to cooking steak in your cast iron and cast iron only and using an Instant Pot for sin is a sin.
But hear me out – cooking the steak bites in the Instant Pot makes it so tender as well as you can just pop in the meat, press pressure, and boom, you can leave the kitchen and do whatever you want. Who doesn’t like handsfree cooking?
I also have an air fryer version of this steak and mushrooms recipe if you want to give it a go in your air fryer instead!
What You Need To Make Instant Pot Hibachi Steak and Mushrooms
- salt and pepper
- soy sauce
- beef stock/broth
How To Make Instant Pot Steak and Mushrooms
In your Instant Pot, layer in your onions, steak, garlic, salt, mushrooms and pepper, soy sauce, beef broth, and close the lid. Set the lid to sealing and set the Instant Pot to 4 minutes under high pressure.
Once done, quick release.
To thicken the sauce, you can remove the beef and mushrooms or leave it in the pot, turn on the sauté function, and stir in a cornstarch slurry (1 tbsp cornstarch to 1 tbsp water).
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container.
TIPS AND NOTES ON MAKING THIS AIR FRYER STEAK BITE RECIPE
I like to serve this alongside rice – other ideas include cauliflower rice, noodles, and potatoes.
If you are meal prepping and don’t want the rice/carb mixing with your steak, you can get containers that have dividers to keep them apart!

Does this recipe have a strong garlic taste? Five cloves seem like a lot.
I don’t personally find it too much. However, you’re welcomed to decrease the amount if you are concerned.
I disagree…going to make this tonight, and you can NEVER have too much Gar,ic! (I am Polish! Lol!)
LOL! I LOVE garlic everything :) I hope you enjoy! If you have a moment after you’re done, I’d appreciate a rating on the recipe :)
I’m Polish, too❤ 3rd generation American. We call onions and garlic Polish Roses
(Liliies) in my family.
This looks delicious for dinner tonight. I’m concerned that it doesn’t call for one total cup of liquid though.
The onions release extra liquid
Thanks! Can’t wait to try it tonight.
This is one of my favorite recipes!
How long would it need to be under pressure for frozen steaks (whole)?
I haven’t tried this from frozen unfortunately. The mushrooms might not hold their shape!
This was delicious! A hit with both my husband and our grandson. We will definitely be having this again.
I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe :)
I made this tonite – used 2 lbs of strip steak, so increased soy sauce & water to 1/2c each. Also doubled the corn starch slurry. Noticed the recipe directions omitted putting the mushrooms in w/onion, steak, garlic (FYI).
It was perfectly cooked, and SO DELICIOUS (and I don’t really like mushrooms – but they were cooked, but still firm, and REALLY GOOD)!!
We will definitely be making this again!! YUM!!!😍👏🏻
Thanks for catching that! I’m so glad that you enjoyed this recipe. Thanks for the rating :)
I’m planning to make this tonight! Do I cook the steak in one piece and then cut to serve, or should I cut it before I put it in the pot? I’m new to this IP thing!
Hi Jen, near the first half of the post, there is a video (if there’s an ad blocker on your browser, you’ll have to turn it off to see it I think). It shows you step by step how I make it. It shows how my steak is cut before cooking.
thank you, the video was indeed blocked! I see it now, thank you so much :)
I hope the video helps :)
Loved this meal! Was so easy and quick! We made the rice first in the instant pot then cooked the rest! Can’t wait to make it again!
Yay! So glad you enjoyed :)
Make this now! It was great and plenty of liquid. We had it with Udon noodles and steamed stir fry veggies!
Haven’t made it yet, but how long should I cook for if my husband and I like our steak rare? I am assuming this will be well done…
Unfortunately, I’ve never tried it. The goal of this recipe was to make melty tender beef. In theory, you could reduce the time but I’m not sure how it’ll turn out. Please let me know if you try it!
Yummy! Because of your recipe, dinner for me and my family was delicious. Thank you for sharing. :)
So happy you enjoyed!!!
Ok I tried this tonight. The meat was not tender it actually came out a little tough and chewy. What did I do wrong?
What type of cut of meat did you use? Another way to prevent meat from coming out chewy is to decrease the cook time and make up for it with a natural pressure release! I haven’t had any issues with chewy steak but this could help :)
Loved this recipe!! It was so easy and quick and delicious! We’ve been so bored with cooking lately, this will definitely make the rounds.
I am so happy to hear!!!!
I tried this recipe twice and it was delicious both times. I used chicken broth once and it was just as good. Adding cornstarch at the end is good to make the gravy thick and savory.
