Here is our very easy to make London Broil recipe using the Instant Pot.
- 2 pounds London broil
- 2 whole onions cut them into pieces.
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 can Diced Tomatoes
- 1/4 cup Maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- Remove the fat from the London broil and season with salt, pepper, and paprika.
- Sear the meat for five minutes per side. Add in the maple syrup, coriander seeds, and the tomatoes.

I made this tonight. I added 4 whole russet potatoes on top and cooked it all for 40 minutes. This was amazing. Im so glad it was on sale I bought enough beef to make it again. The real maple syrup added amazing flavor. Instead of salt I used garlic salt, smokey paprika and white pepper. Such a great recipe. So happy I got an insta pot for Christmas.
Was any other liquid required? I thought 1 1/2 cups were needed in an 8 qt. instant pot.
The can of diced tomatoes and liquid rendered from 2 cups onions would provide enough
You don’t list paprika in the ingredient list here but you say to sprinkle it on in the directions. That’s confusing. Do I put paprika in or not? Thanks.
I couldn’t find a London broil smaller than 3 1/2 pounds, I follow the recipe to the letter and cook it for 40 minutes then slow release. Flavor was good but the meat was extremely tough!
I won’t make it again
We thk the pressure may not have built up..I put whole London Broil in pot with soup, mushroons, milk, onions, tomatoes and carrots..meat tough…I guess trying this cut wasnt too smart..
Don’t put milk in instant pot when adding liquids. It doesn’t allow for pressure to build.
Whenever the meat is tough, the best thing to do is pull it out, let it sit 10 mins., then slice, then replace meat to the instant pot. Use the manual setting and set for 5 mins. The meat will be more tender and will have absorbed even more flavor from the sauce, because of the added surface area of each piece. If ever a piece of meat is tough, it means that the cooking time was not long enough. Don’t give up.
I chose to use a chuck roast and I cubed it. It was really tender
I just made this. DELICIOUS! I love this recipe.
Is this rare?
I made this recipe tonight, and I was seriously disappointed in the doneness of the meat. It was tender, but definitely over cooked and very dry. I thickened the liquid a bit with cornstarch, sliced the meat and let it sit in the liquid for a few minutes while preparing the dishes. The gravey type liquid with the tomato’s, maple syrup, onions, and fresh garlic was absolutely delicious and saved the meal! I will make this recipe again, however, I think we need to shorten the cook time in the InstaPot to approximately 15 to 20 minutes tops. Then, if the meat isn’t tender enough yet, remove it from the pot, let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes, slice, and return to the pot, secure the lid and cook for 5 additional minutes on the Pressure Cooker or regular setting.
I completely agree. The meat was very dry. But sauce was delicious.
I typically do this piece of meat on a gas grill or a broil, so this was a different cooking method. Turned out more like a piece of stew meat. I did put a bag of uncle Ben’s white 90 second rice in the tomatoes and onions, and it didn’t exactly save the day, maybe more rice? Kinda got what I expected, meh.
I also thought it was very overdone at 35 minutes. I’ll try again at 20 minutes cook and 15 natural release. Sauce was very good. May try a can of fire roasted tomatoes instead of plain diced.
