Instant Pot Mongolian Beef

Have you ever forgot to look at your recipe for dinner in the morning and realized it was a Crockpot recipe and now it’s only 2 hours before dinner? I have been doing this a lot lately and probably should have learned my lesson by now. Ha! This Instant Pot recipe was adapted from a Crockpot recipe from the Frugal Real Food Meal Plan I’m currently using. I converted it to use in the Instant Pot, substituting what I already had on hand and adding extra veggies I needed to use up to make it work. It turned out great!
