On Friday I turned 35 and one of the awesome gifts I got was an Instant Pot. Garen got it for me. He also got me a new diamond bracelet so he’s officially the best husband EVER. He knew that I’d never buy one of these myself. Plus, he also knew that I’d never get it out of the box and going on my own. Technology and I have a love-hate relationship. I love it but hate how intimidating it is to me.
We got it going yesterday afternoon with the water test and I cooked my first frozen chicken last night. It worked like a charm. And just like that, I was hooked…. just like everyone else that has one and has tried it.
Today I took advantage of the day at home and cooked up a round of food to get us started including:
- Boiled eggs
- Instant Pot Black Beans (recipe coming soon)
- Pulled pork
- Shredded chicken (recipe coming soon)
- Brunswick Stew- Instant Pot Style
Click on the links above to check out the recipes, all of which turned out great! I’m just getting started so stay tuned to check out my experiments with my newest toy.
Happy Instant Potting!
