    Select the sauté function on your Instant pot. Once hot, add about 1 T approved oil to coat the bottom of your pan. Sauté onions for about 2 minutes, then add garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Select cancel.


    Season your beef with garlic & onion powder, and a bit of salt and pepper. Place on top of the onion/garlic mixture.
