Turn on Instant Pot using Saute Setting.
Put flour in a medium size bowl and toss stew meat in it until well coated.
Place butter in pot and allow to melt.
Add stew meat to pot and brown. Stir occasionally so the flour doesn’t burn.
When meat is browned, add red wine and deglaze the pot.
Turn the pot off.
Add broth, soy sauce, coconut sugar, garlic, tomato paste, rosemary, black pepper, and all the vegetables. Stir well.
Replace lid on pot, and set to manual high pressure for 45 minutes.
Allow a natural release.
When the knob drops, remove lid and stir.
Turn pot off.
In a small bowl, add cold water. Stir arrowroot flour into the cold water creating a slurry.
Pour slurry into pot, and stir well.
Set pot to sauce, and allow to thicken for a few minutes.
Once thickened, taste and add additional salt, if desired.
Serve, and enjoy!
