  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Add butter once the pot is hot. Add beef and season with 1 tablespoon adobo seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon cumin, and 1/8 teaspoon coriander. Cook until beef is browned on all sides, 5 to 8 minutes. Add fresh minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour 1 cup beef broth into the pot and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off the bottom with a wooden spoon. Cancel Saute mode.
