Add water to the Instant Pot.
Add broccoli to the steamer insert and place into the Instant Pot cooking insert.
Close the lid. Using the manual mode, set the Instant Pot timer to 0. If your Instant Pot has high or low pressure cooking, choose high pressure.
Once the timer goes off, immediately reduce the pressure of the Instant Pot by moving the steam valve to open. Once the Instant Pot is fully depressurized, remove the lid and take the steamer basket out of the pressure cooker.
Move your broccoli to a serving dish and season. For a very simple side dish, I like butter and salt.
This method works well with broccoli chopped to any size. I've steamed smaller florets for soup and larger spears and it always cooks perfectly.
