- Heat oil in Instant Pot or multi-cooker on the high sauté setting. Add sliced steak; cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until browned. Add mushrooms, green pepper, red pepper, onion, smoked paprika, chili powder, salt, pepper and chili flakes.
- Cook for about 10 minutes or until vegetables are softened. Stir in tomato paste; cook for 3 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, broth and Worcestershire sauce. Select manual setting and adjust pressure to high; set time for 15 minutes.
- Quick-release pressure according to manufacturer’s direction. Stir in cubed cheese; let stand for 3 minutes.
- Garnishes: Top each serving with shredded cheese and chives. Serve with sourdough bread.
Tip: Freezing the steak for 30 minutes before slicing makes it easier to cut into thin, even slices.
