If you haven’t heard of the Instant Pot, then let me tell you about it. It’s fucking great! It’s given me more pleasure in the month I’ve owned it than my ex-husband did in our 18 years of marriage (I’m not kidding). It’s an electric pressure cooker that does a myriad of cool things. You can use it as a slow, pressure, and rice cooker and you can sauté and steam too. I love that I can come home from work and put together a meal in roughly 30 minutes start to finish. It cooks food faster and with less mess than a conventional oven. Plus, your kitchen doesn’t get hot as hades. According to the manual, it’s one of the healthiest ways to cook. I don’t really care about that, but I’m sure one of you will. You can purchase an Instant Pot here and here.
It comes with a nice recipe book as well. You can also find many other delicious recipes on Pinterest. Follow my Instant Pot Pinterest board here for great recipes all in one place. Today I made one of my favorite Instant Pot dishes…beef and broccoli (see below). I highly recommend giving it a try. I plan to try this dessert recipe soon. I’ll post about its success or failure in the future.
Happy 4th and don’t apologize for being you!
