  3. Add the diced beef and brown on all sides (you may need to work in batches)
  4. While the beef browns, tie the fresh herbs together with a piece of string.
  5. Once all the beef has browned, add the onions and sauté for 2 mins. Then add the garlic, tomato paste, bundle of herbs, red wine, bacon, mushrooms, and beef stock.
  6. Secure the lid, and select Pressure Cook and set the time to 30 minutes, with a quick pressure release.
  7. When the time is up, perform a quick pressure release, then remove the lid, and add the carrots.
  8. Secure the lid again, select Pressure Cook and set the time for 5 minutes, followed by a quick pressure release.
  9. In a small bowl, mix the corn flour with 75ml water to loosen it into a paste, then add to the beef bourguignon.
  10. Select sauté and cook until the sauce has thickened, then serve your Beef Bourguignon with your favourite mash.
