In the Kitchen

Here's a new-to- me kitchen appliance!

It's an Instant Pot!! Basically an electric pressure cooker with added features. It sautes and is a slow cooker. It says it is a 6 in 1, but I haven't tried all the features yet. I've made a pot roast, whole chicken, chicken breast which I shredded for tacos, veggie stock from scraps, chicken stock from bones. There is so much more it can do and I'm learning something every day.
If you have an Instant Pot do you have a favorite recipe?


  1. I am a "pothead"!!!!! I got my Instant pot for Christmas and LOVE it!. My husband calls it the Magic Pot. One of my favorite recipes is unstuffed cabbage bowls. I have made yogurt several times, and have proofed bread in it. Of course the soups and pasta dishes are wonderful. Enjoy it. You can check my Pinterest board for recipes I have been collecting.

  2. New to me me too, very interesting! Does the pressure cooker function make things cook really fast?

  3. I'm late to this party, I know. I just got one of these for my birthday in November, but haven't been nearly as adventurous with it as Betsy. I do a lot of vegan cooking in my family (2 vegans and a vegetarian among my 4 children) and I have used it for cooking beans and brown rice more quickly. I make a three bean chili and I made it for our extended family Christmas party. In one afternoon I had cooked all three kinds of beans from dry to tender, and that was a wonder! I've never had a pressure cooker, so I am just catching on to what it can do. I recently got a couple of cookbooks--now I just need to make time to read them and try some new recipes.
