White rice, brown rice, or cauliflower rice for serving
In a small measuring bowl, whisk together the coconut aminos, sweet chili sauce, beef broth, sesame oil, onion powder, and black pepper.
Peel and finely grate the ginger into the sauce mixture and add the pressed or minced garlic.
Place the beef in the pressure cooker and pour the sauce over it.
Close the pressure cooker, close the pressure valve, and cook on "Meat" setting on high for 40 minutes.
Once it's done cooking, turn off the "keep warm" feature if it turns on automatically and allow the pressure to release naturally for 20 minutes. Releasing pressure naturally after cooking meat helps to keep it tender.
Once the pressure is released, open the pressure cooker and remove the beef and set it on a cutting board.
Turn on the brown/saute setting and simmer the sauce in the pressure cooker for 5 minutes to reduce the sauce a bit.
Scoop out about 1/4 cup of the sauce into a small dish and whisk in 1 tablespoon of cornstarch until smooth, then add it back to the sauce in the pot.
Simmer sauce for another 4-5 minutes or until thickened, whisking regularly to prevent scorching or lumps.
Shred the beef and add it back to the hot and thickened sauce.
Serve over hot rice and garnish with red chili flakes, chopped green onions, and sesame seeds.
