To make Instant Pot Wild Goose Breasts with Orange Sauce I put some olive oil into my Pot and turned on the Saute Normal function for 6 minutes.

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

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

While the goose breasts were cooking I diced one yellow onion.  I used the remainder of the saute time to soften the onion.

If necessary continue softening the onion after the Saute Normal function shuts off using the residual heat.

Once the onions were soft I poured in some orange juice and 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 Instant Pot I poured in some beef broth and gluten free soy sauce.  

Next I stirred in some salt and pepper.

Then I put the trivet in the Pot and placed the goose breasts on top of it.

I sprinkled the zest of one orange on top of the goose breasts and then squeezed the juice from the orange over the breasts as well.

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 12 minutes.

While the Instant Pot Wild Goose Breasts with Orange Sauce was cooking I drained a tin of mandarin oranges and used a knife to cut them into smaller pieces right in the can.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 10 minuts before turning the steam release handle to the venting position.

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

Then I stirred in the mandarin pieces.

After adding the mandarin pieces, 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 orange 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 orange sauce over the breasts on the serving platter.

Serve Instant Pot Wild Goose Breasts smothered in more orange sauce and with your favourite sides.  The orange sauce was also delicous over rice!
