Spicy Basil Beef Bowls
Cook a spicy basil beef along with a pot of rice at the same time in your pressure cooker. Make a quick-pickled salad while they cook, to serve a healthy, fast dinner.
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time20 mins
For the Salad
- 1 carrots julienned or coarsely grated
- 1 cucumber peeled and julienned or coarsley grated
- 1/4 cup White Vinegar
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Splenda or sugar
For the Beef
Turn your Instant Pot to Sauté high, and when it is hot, add oil. When the oil is shimmering hot, add ginger, garlic and chilis and sauté 30 seconds.
Add sliced onions and sauté 1 minute
Add in ground beef and break up lumps. Don't worry about cooking it at this point. Just make sure it's not going to cook as one big lump of meat.
Add 1/2 cup of chopped basil leaves (add more if you like basil, just leave enough to add some fresh leaves at the end).
Add all the other beef ingredients and mix well.
Place a steamer rack on top of the beef.
On the rack, place the covered rice pot. (Sorry mine shows cooked rice, because I forgot to take a picture before hand).
Cook on high pressure for 4 minutes and allow it to release pressure for 5 minutes. Release all remaining pressure.
For the Salad
While the rice and beef are cooking, julienne the carrots and cucumbers, and mix with vinegar, sugar and salt. I added red pepper flakes to mine.
