The major reason for the burn notice is brown caramelized bits on the pan.
No Deglazing- Burnt bits left in the pan after sautéing. When you make a recipe that calls for sautéing or browning before pressure cooking, make sure you deglaze. Deglazing is a way of getting more flavor but in this case, more importantly it’s to avoid the burn notice.
To deglaze– After you have finished sautéing, add the liquid to the pan and using a wooden or silicon spatula, rub the bottom of the pan so all burnt bits get mixed up in the liquid. Only after than, pressure cook.
