Instant Pot Pineapple Skirt Steak

Instant Pot Pineapple Skirt Steak


3/4 cup pineapple juice or pineapple juice blend

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 1/2 pounds skirt steak, sliced about 1/4 inch thick against the grain

2 scallions, green parts only, thinly sliced, for garnish


Place the pineapple juice, soy sauce, and pepper in the inner pot and stir to combine. Add the steak and stir to coat it with the sauce. Close and lock the lid. Set the valve to Sealing. Press Manual or Pressure Cook and use the Pressure or Pressure Level button to select High Pressure. Use the – or + button to set the time to 12 minutes. When the cooking cycle ends, carefully use a wooden spoon to release the pressure by turning the pressure-release valve to Venting. (The pressure is released when the small metal float valve next to the pressure-release valve sinks back into the lid and the lid is no longer locked.)  Press Cancel and remove the lid. Remove the steak from the inner pot.   Serve warm, drizzled with a spoonful of the sauce and garnished with scallions. Pineapple Skirt Steak and cooking liquid will keep, in an airtight container in the refrigerator, for up to 4 days. To reheat, place the steak in a pot, add cooking liquid to cover the bottom, and warm on the stovetop over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Note: To cut against the grain, slice perpendicular to the muscle fibers running through the steak.
