    • Lock the lid in place. Cook at high pressure for 10 minutes. Make sure the valve is set to the sealing position.
    • 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)

    • Select “saute”, add the broccoli and stir a bit.
    • Close the Instant Pot and let the broccoli cook for 3 minutes (fresh) or 5 minutes (frozen) on saute (no need for pressure cooking).
