Tender seasoned steaks cooked in your Instant Pot!

  2. With a paper towel pat the steaks dry. Rub the seasonings on both sides of the steaks.
  3. Turn Instant Pot to sauté setting. When display says HOT add in the oil and place the steaks into the pot. Let the steaks sit (don’t move them) for 2 minutes. Flip them over with tongs and let them sit for 2 more minutes on the other side.
  4. Turn off the Instant Pot. Move the steaks out of the pot onto a plate. Pour in 1 cup of water and scrape the bottom of the pot so nothing is sticking. Place a trivet into the pot. Place the steaks on top of the trivet.
