- Generously season beef with salt and pepper.
- Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)) and select Saute function. Heat 1 tablespoon avocado oil and tilt the pot to distribute the oil evenly. Once oil shimmers, add 1/2 the beef and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer browned beef to a bowl and repeat with remaining beef.
- Heat another tablespoon oil in the Instant Pot(R); when oil shimmers, add mushrooms. Cook mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until slightly brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add mushrooms to the bowl with the beef. Add 1 tablespoon avocado oil to the pot and cook carrots, onions, and celery until onions begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until just fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in wine to deglaze the pot, scraping up any browned bits, and cook until wine has almost evaporated, 3 to 5 minutes. Return browned beef and mushrooms to the pot. Stir in barley, tomato paste, bay leaves, thyme, bouillon base, red pepper flakes, and beef broth. Stir until well combined.
- Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 30 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
- Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions for 15 minutes. Release remaining pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Remove and discard bay leaves. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt.
- Cook's Note:
- The barley will be al dente.

As always, 5 stars from this recipe submitter. Loved the chili flakes! I did end up adding another 1/3 cup barley after turning it off. The only barley I have in my area is quick cooking barley ...
Made this yesterday. It was great! Everybody loved it. Only thing I would change is adding 1 cup barley.
This recipe is great. My family likes a little kick to their food, added a bit more spice. Tastes great!
Made it exactly as recipe said and it was so good! The beef was tender and it was hearty. Will definitely make this again!
