With a house full of hungry males, I am always looking for different meals that are easy to make and don’t take all day to cook.  I was pretty intimidated by the thought of cooking beef in the Instant Pot, but it is so easy, quick, and the end result is so tender and delicious!  Add Instant Pot Korean Beef to your menu this week!  It takes less than an hour to cook, and you can prepare the rice and stir fried veggies while the beef cooks.
