Instant Pot(R) Kielbasa, Sauerkraut, and Potato
May 16, 2019

If you want to avoid your kielbasa turning to mush what you need to do is, when you put the kielbasa back in, put it on top of everything. Then secure the lid and set the instant pot to 0 minutes. It will come to full pressure and then automatically go to the keep warm setting. Let it naturally reduce pressure for 10 minutes and then let the rest of the pressure out of the instant pot. You just have to make sure that you slice your potatoes thin enough that the 10 minutes at pressure will cook them through. 3/4 inch to one inch works fine. This keeps the kielbasa from turning to mush. Now this is only if you are using precooked kielbasa.
