  1. Instant Pot – Set the Instant Pot to sauté and add the ghee. Sprinkle the beef with the salt and pepper and brown in batches on all sides for about 10 minutes. Remove to a plate and add the onion and garlic to the pot. Cook until softened about 3-4 minutes. Add the red wine and simmer until reduced by half, stirring up the browned bits on the bottom. Stir in the tomato paste and stir 1 minute. Add the carrots, celery, celeriac, beef broth and beef. Combine the xanthan gum with 1/4 cup water with an immersion blender until thickened and pour into the pot. Screw on the lid and set to manual for 15 minutes. Let pressure reduce naturally for 10 minutes, then quick release. Stir in the kale, parsley, thyme and cayenne and taste for seasoning. Serve.
