Crisp Bacon: Crisp 6 slices of bacon or chopped bacon in Instant Pot - add bacon and heat up Instant Pot using Sauté More function. Stir occasionally and allow the bacon to crisp. Remove bacon from Instant Pot and place them on a paper towel to absorb the excess fat. *Pro Tip: You don't need to add oil as bacon has a lot of fat.
Saute Onions and Garlic: Add diced onion in the bacon fat. Saute until soften (~2 mins). Add in minced garlic, 2 bay leaves, then saute for another minute.
Deglaze: Pour ½ cup (125ml) unsalted chicken stock. Scrub all the brown bits off the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. *Pro Tip: Keep the brown bits as they are very flavorful.
