The type of meal that can warm your bones on a cold winter day.

However, typically, Beef Burgundy takes a long time to cook and sometimes, the craving hits you when you don’t have extra time to spare.

That is exactly what happened to me. I was craving a good comfort meal this past week and knew that I would have to use my Instant Pot because I was short on time.

I thought about making Instant Pot Chicken and Dumplings, but I was honestly tired of eating chicken.

Chuck roast is the perfect cut of meat to make beef burgundy.

We have been eating a lot of chicken lately, so I really wanted to make something with beef. Plus, I had a 2 pound chuck roast in the refrigerator, begging to be used.

I have used chuck roast before in my Instant Pot. And I knew that it made delicious Pot Roast and Barbacoa Beef.

So I decided that I would try my traditional Beef Burgundy recipe in the Instant Pot.

And it was an easy transition. Unlike some recipes that require the addition of liquid when converted to cooking it in the Instant Pot, this recipe was perfect.

cubes of meat
Cut the chuck roast into bite size pieces, removing excessive layers of fat.

However, because there are various methods to making Beef Burgundy, there are a few tips that you should follow.

First, start out by tossing your beef cubes in flour. No, you aren’t breading it. The extra flour will help brown your beef and provide a natural thickener when cooked in the Instant Pot.

Brown your meat on all sides, working in batches if needed.

Next, be sure to deglaze the bottom of your pot before pressure cooking. Any stuck brown bits can easily be removed when you add the liquid by using a wooden spatula to scrape the bottom.

We use a dry red wine such as Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon in this recipe. Because we continue to saute the liquid, the alcohol content is removed and you are left with a flavorful sauce.

deglaze
Use the red wine to deglaze the bottom of the pot before pressure cooking.

However, if for medical or personal reasons that you avoid wine, then simply replace it with beef broth.

Just be sure to choose a good beef broth when making Beef Burgundy in your Instant Pot. It will definitely make a difference in the final product.

The Vegetables

Although it depends on what recipe you follow, traditional Beef Burgundy is made with carrots, onions, and mushrooms.

carrots
Cut the carrots in chunks so that they hold up during the pressure cooking process.

Some people use pearl onions instead of sliced onions. And those who aren’t mushroom fans, simply omit them.

I have seen baby potatoes added to some recipes as well.

Here is my take on that. Make it however you like! We typically don’t have pearl onions in our pantry so we use a yellow or white onion instead.

mushrooms
You can use whole or sliced mushrooms for this recipe. And if you don’t like mushrooms, simply leave them out!

The choice is really up to you. And don’t be afraid to experiment with the recipe. Regardless, the process and cooking time for making Beef Burgundy in your Instant Pot will remain the same.

Serving Suggestions

And there is one final choice to make. How are you going to serve your Beef Burgundy?

Most people serve it over cooked, wide egg noodles. And I often see it served with mashed potatoes.

Both are wonderful choices! But let’s think outside of the box and suggest that you can serve it also over rice, cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, or spaghetti squash.
