To make Instant Pot Wild Goose Breasts with Cherry Sauce I put some olive oil into my Pot and turned on the Saute Normal function for 4 minutes.

When the Pot was hot I added the two goose breasts.

After searing both sides I removed the goose breasts to a plate.

Then I poured the juice from two tins of bing cherries into the Instant Pot.  I used the juice to deglaze the Pot.  

Removing any food bits from the bottom of the Pot is a very important step so that you will avoid the Burn message while the Pot is coming to pressure.

After deglazing the Pot I poured in the bing cherries from both cans along with some brown sugar, ground cinnamon, some beef broth mix powder and salt.

Then I put the trivet in the Pot.

I placed the two goose breasts back in the Pot on top of the trivet.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 10 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 7 minutes before turning the steam release handle to the venting position.

Then I removed the lid.

I removed the goose breasts and allowed them to rest on a serving tray covered with tinfoil.

After removing the breasts I turned the Instant Pot to the Saute Less function for 5 minutes.  I made a slurry of corn starch and water and stirred it into the cherry sauce until it boiled and thickened slightly.

Once the Pot shut off I left the sauce to simmer and sliced the goose breasts.

I spooned some of the cherry sauce over the breasts on the serving platter.

Serve Instant Pot Wild Goose Breasts smothered in more cherry sauce and with your favourite sides.

I refrigerated the leftover sauce (needed the two cans to obtain the right amount of liquid for coming to pressure), and used it on a pork roast later in the week.  Very Good!
