Tips & Tricks on how to make the perfect Pressure Cooked Beef Bourguignon Recipe:

  • I always say this, but a good meat centered meal starts with quality meat, preferably use organic beef for this meal. I used stew meat.
  • Look for fresh meat, that has a bright color, and lots of marbling, the marbling is essential to get great flavor and tenderness.
  • Cut the beef into 2 inch chunks, so they hold their shape well after cooking.
  • Browning the beef is essential, it will lock the flavor and the beef juices and also elevate the meat flavor.
  • I used lots of garlic in this recipe, we love garlic in our family and I think it works really well with the flavors. Feel free to use less if you are not a huge garlic fan.
  • You can also add a cup of chopped celery.
  • You can add red pepper flakes for the dish to be spicier.
  • If you want to make this dish without the wine, you can replace it with beef broth.

Does the alcohol from wine cook off in the Instant Pot?

When you are cooking with alcohol using a Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot) or slow cooker, the alcohol won’t evaporate as when you were cooking on the stove-top. The alcohol is sealed in this case, and only a portion of it will evaporate into steam. Therefore, the dish should only be served to adults.

What is a 10 Minutes Natural Pressure Release?

A Natural Pressure Release means that the pressure is released gradually. For a Natural Pressure Release, you click on Keep Warm, and wait 10 minutes, after which you open the valve and let any leftover pressure to release. Another option is to Turn Off/Unplug the pressure cooker, wait 10 minutes and after that open the valve. A natural release is usually used when cooking soups, meat in a large amount of sauce, pasta or steel cut oats. This method prevents for any foam from the dish to shoot out through the valve, which can happen during a Quick Pressure Release.

  • 1 1/2 - 2 pounds stew meat cut into 1 1/2 - 2 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola or olive oil
Rest of Ingredients:
  • 1 sweet yellow onion peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 carrots peeled and chopped into 2 inch chunks
  • 8 ounces baby Bella mushrooms trimmed and quartered
  • 1 cup celery chopped - optional
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 pound mini potatoes or Yukon halved
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary

  3. Once the oil is hot, cook the beef in batches 2-3 minutes on each side until nice and brown.
  4. Remove the beef from the pot, cover with foil and set aside.
  5. Add the chopped onion to the pot and cook for 1 minute, add the garlic, stir and cook for 1 minute.
  6. Add the cup of beef broth, and using a wooden spoon scrape well the bottom of the Instant Pot to remove any bits that stuck to it, make sure you scrape it well to avoid burning during cooking.
  7. Add the beef back to the pot, add tomato paste, tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce.

  13. Release manually the remaining pressure.
  1. If you want the beef bourguignon sauce to be thicker, mix corn starch and water in a small bowl until fully combined.
  2. With the IP on Saute, add the mixture to the pot and gently stir, trying not to crush the veggies. Cook for a few minutes until the sauce thickens.

  3. Serve and enjoy.
