Season the beef with salt. Rub in the saltTurn of the instant pot on Saute on high - Be patient and allow the Instant Pot to get hot. Next sear the beef on all sides. Do not be in a hurry or your end product will not be as good as you can achieve.
Once seared on all sides add in the carrots, onion, poblano, celery and saute them for a few minutes. Look for the vegetable to release some of their water and take on a little bit of color.
Next, add in the red wine and cook it with the vegetable until the alcohol has cooked off. About 2 minutes.
Then add in the Tomato paste. This will bring a deep level of flavor to the recipe. I would not skip this setup. Cook the tomato paste with the vegetable for around a minute. Just looking for the tomato paste to incorporate into the vegetables.
Now add the beef back into the Instant Pot along with the 2 Bay Leaves, Salt, Pepper, Cayenne & Soy Sauce
