  5. Remove as much of the air as you can by lowering the bag into a bowl of water, using the water to push the air out of the bag, being careful not to allow any water into the bag. Seal while immersed or use a vacuum sealer.
  6. When the Instant Pot has come to temperature, place the bag of vegetables in the pot, close the lid making sure the valve is open, cook for 1 hour.
  7. In the meantime, season 2 x 12 oz/340g striploin/sirloin steaks well on both sides with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
