Your Instant Pot will help you create this luscious dish in a fraction of the time it would take using traditional methods. Instant Pot Beef Burgundy is rustic, flavorful and sure to impress.
Press the SAUTÉ key on the instant pot and the ADJUST key to select the MORE setting. Wait for the pot to say "HOT" before adding ingredients.
Add the beef broth, thyme, bay leaves, and reserved seared beef, along with all the beef drippings, and stir to combine. Place the lid on the instant pot. Press the MANUAL button, select HIGH, and set the time to 15 minutes (making sure the steam release handle is in the "Sealing" position). After the cooking is complete, use a long handled spoon to push the steam release handle to the "Venting" position. Allow the steam to release completely and open the pot. Press CANCEL.
Blot the beef dry with paper towels before cubing and seasoning. Dry beef will sear better when it hits the oil.
For easy to slice bacon, place it in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes while you prep the other ingredients.
Cook time doesn't include time it takes for the Instant Pot to come to pressure which should take about 10 minutes for this recipe.
