To begin I cut up the vegetables so they would be ready as soon as it was time to add them.  I used yellow onion, mushrooms, celery and red pepper.  

I also cut up some potatoes and rinsed off some baby carrots.

Then I laid the turkey breast out in a foil pan.

 I rubbed some gluten free Montreal Chicken spice all over it.

Next I turned the Instant Pot on to the Sauté Less function for 8 minutes and added some olive oil.

I seared the turkey breast on each side for a couple of minutes before removing it to start the vegetables.

I quickly added a bit more olive oil and dumped in all the cut vegetables.  I did not add the potatoes or baby carrots at this time.

When the Instant Pot shut off I added in a can of Pepsi and used it to deglaze the Pot.  

This step of scraping any brown bits from the bottom is very important so that you avoid the Burn message when the Pot is coming to pressure.

Adding the Pepsi to the Instant Pot to deglaze.

I added in some chicken broth and then inserted my egg holder to use as my “trivet”.

Next I carefully set the wild turkey breast on top and rubbed some minced garlic on it before spreading the potatoes and carrots around it.

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 16 minutes.

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

I lifted the wild turkey breast out and set it on a cutting board.

I turned the Instant Pot back to the Saute Less function for 5 minutes and stirred in 3 packets of gluten free turkey gravy.

I also mixed a bit cornstarch and water together to make a slurry and stirred it in. 

While the gravy was thickening I cut the wild turkey breast into small pieces.

Then I stirred the pieces of meat into the Pot with all the other ingredients.

Instant Pot Wild Turkey Stew is a wholesome bowl of flavour and comfort.

Each spoonful of this gluten free stew is loaded with flavour and goodness.  Enjoy with biscuits or fresh bread.
