Put the lid on and close the pressure valve then select the STEW/SOUP function and adjust the time to 8 minutes.
When the program has finished press CANCEL. For this recipe we recommend the QUICK RELEASE method before opening the pressure valve and removing the lid.
In a cup or bowl, combine the cornflour with some water, and mix until you have a thick paste, then add this to the stew.
Select the SAUTE function and stir to thicken the sauce for 3 minutes. While you stir, scoop each star anise from the top before serving.
