Once the beef is done, add a little oil to the instant pot, if needed. Quickly saute the minced garlic and grated ginger until aromatic, about 1 minute. Add the soy sauce mixture and deglaze the pan so there are no stuck browned bits at the bottom. Turn off saute setting.
When the cooking time ends, do a quick pressure release. Set the valve to the venting position and when the valve drops, carefully remove the lid. Add the cornstarch diluted with water and stir everything until smooth. Turn on the "saute" setting again. Add the broccoli florets and cook for about 3 minutes or just until tender but not mushy. Add the sesame oil and give it a quick stir.
Taste and adjust seasoning with a little salt, if needed. Serve immediately with rice.
