I bought an instant pot about a year ago. I was super excited to reduce my cooking time and it was all the rage. Then I read the directions and got nervous. It's a pressure cooker. Would I blow up the house or worse, blow off my face as I peered closely at it. So I tucked it away and scrolled thru some blogs and recipe sites seeing comments from others. Turns out, as long as you let the steam out before opening the lid you are fine. And thy make it impossible to open the lid if you haven't let the steam out. Kinda idiot proof. Ok I bring it back out. Tried rice. Ooh 8 minutes. Nice. Tried brown rice. Also perfect in under 10 minutes. Soup-yep that worked too. So this week I tried a roast and potatoes. 70 minutes and a 4 lb pot roast and potatoes where tender and according to my cavemen children, the best thing in the world. Trust me I'll keep experimenting because mama got like zero time lately however healthy meals still top the list of priorities. Here is the wonder pot I'm talking about.
