Instant Pot Beef Bourguignon {AIP/Paleo}

I’m just starting to venture into using the pressure cooker setting on my Instant Pot, but each and every time I do, I am overwhelmed with the deliciousness that prevails.

This past Friday night while my daughter was on a play date, I really fancied Beef Stew, and I had some Stew Meat in the fridge and some bacon, some veggies and I thought that was the route I would go, until my eye landed on a bottle of Red Wine that a friend had opened while visiting recently and I was reminded of a recipe that my Mum used to make when I was a child that would fill the house with a rich aroma that warmed you just on inhalation!

Alcohol is not AIP Compliant but when it is cooked, the alcohol is burned off, so waste not want not, I decided craft an AIP Compliant Beef Bourguignon Recipe… as my ode to Julia Child!

As the aroma started to fill the house, I actually started salivating, pleased that I only had to wait 30 minutes for dinner to be ready… and boy was I rewarded.

  1. Im going to make it using carrots and zucchini and fennel. I think those are all safe for me- unfortunately all in the onion/garlic family have become the enemy.

  2. Please clarify the time setting. If the Instant Pot is set to 50, it will bring to pressure (which takes 20 minutes or so) then it will cook for 50. But you say it will only cook another 30 – as if the coming to pressure time is included in the 50?

    1. Yes per the recipe, set the Instant Pot to Hight Pressure for 50 minutes, this includes the coming to pressure time and the cooking time! I hope this clarifies – thanks for confirming! Hope you enjoy the dish

  3. So really the cooking time is only 30 minutes not 50 because the Instant Pot doesn’t start counting down on the timer until it comes to pressure.

  4. I am also confused because if set to 50 minutes, the IP will come to pressure and then cook for 50 minutes, right? Perhaps this a different setting than I am used to?

    1. I set mine to 30 minutes and it comes out perfectly. The one time I made this recipe and set the IP on 50 minutes it was overcooked.

    1. Based on other Instant Pot/slow cooker conversions, I believe you would need to cook this recipe on LOW for 6 hours in a slow cooker.

  5. I’ve made this recipe several times and we love it! My husband wants me to make it for his birthday dinner but I would need to double it for the number of people that will be here. Do you think doubling the recipe will still be okay in the IP?

  6. Totally confused. You mention you adjusted the recioe, but the only one I see shows 30 minutes. I am BRAND new to using the IP. Can you clarify sgain?

    1. Catharine, If you set your Instant Pot to “meat/stew” and 30, it will come out just fine. I haven’t quite figured out the IP completely, but I’ve found there is often some wiggle room with timing.

  7. Instant Pot timer starts once pressurized. If you set it to 30, it will come to pressure, then cook 30 minutes after coming to pressure.

    That’s about 40 – 50 minutes total time from the time you start until it is finished.

  8. Before aip I made the Julia Child version of this recipe, which takes almost 24 hours to make from start to finish. I’m so pleased to find this aip version, which is currently cooking in my pressure cooker. I can’t wait to try it. Only a couple of minutes away! I will post once we finish eating to let you know how we liked it!

    1. Well, I certainly wasn’t disappointed! It turned out very good. However I seem to remember mushrooms being part of the original recipe, so will make sure next time I make it, to include mushrooms.
      Thank you again for this recipe.
