I had the same problem. Try pushing inward on the key while wiggling the steering wheel. You most likely cut of the ingnition before you had completely stopped the car, or took you foot off the brake before it completely stopped. This happens on any type of slope and lock up the spring.

Sounds like you are doing the right thing... Also, try to remove any tension on steering components...Try turning the steering wheel a bit more towards the direction the wheels are turned...This will relieve tension on steering wheel internal lock.
