Instant Pot® Shrimp and Broccoli


Shrimp and broccoli stir-fry doesn't get any faster or easier than this. Zero minutes is not a typo. The pot will take 10 minutes to come to pressure and that is all the cook time the shrimp needs. Serve over rice if desired.

4 servings


  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil

  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 pound raw peeled and deveined shrimp

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons cold water

  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets

  • 2 green onions, chopped (Optional)

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds (Optional)


  1. Whisk soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, brown sugar, Sriracha sauce, and garlic in a small bowl until smooth.

  2. Pour sauce into a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Stir in shrimp. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 0 minutes. Allow 10 minutes for pressure to build.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk cornstarch and cold water together until smooth.

  4. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 2 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Stir in cornstarch slurry and broccoli. Select Saute function and cook until sauce thickens and broccoli is crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.

  5. Garnish shrimp and broccoli with green onions and sesame seeds.

Cook's Note:

I prefer my broccoli bright green and crisp tender, which is why I add it in the end. If you prefer more well done broccoli, add it in with the shrimp prior to bringing the pot up to pressure.
