Instant Pot Korean Beef with Pot in Pot (PIP) Rice

As you may remember from my post a couple days ago titled How to Soften Brown Sugar-Instant Pot Method I also mentioned I would be making Instant Pot Korean Beef. This recipe is so good as is, really. The only substitution I made the 1st time was for cornstarch I used arrowroot instead. Oh and instead of soy sauce I use coconut aminos with extra sea salt. This time I was feeling adventurous so I decided to double the Sriracha and the ginger, still substituting with arrowroot & coconut aminos. I also decided to experiment with pot-in-pot (PIP) rice. It is such an awesome feature with the Instant Pot to be able to cook multiple foods at once in the same pot! Here is how I did it:

1) Prepare the meat and sauce for the Korean Beef using this recipe and stop after step 2.
2) Rinse the rice (I love this mesh strainer for rice) and put it into a Pyrex Glass 7 Cup Round Bowl.
3) Add broth or water and butter to the bowl. Sprinkle with sea salt.
4) Place trivet over meat & sauce. Place bowl of rice on trivet inside pot.
5) Continue with Korean Beef Recipe at step 3.
6) When done, Quick Release. Remove trivet & rice. Finish thickening sauce. Enjoy!
