So I feel like I am using my Instant Pot® at least 4 times a week. I have been having a great time experimenting and am amazed at the way the flavors are locked in and how quickly the meals are finished... not to say the super easy clean up. The main insert can go in the dishwasher and I hand-clean the top with very sudsy water.

This was delicious! I was craving minestrone with beef and this met my (very pregnant) craving! I followed the directions, no substitutions, the only issue I ran into was that I have a 6qt instant pot and the set serving size (8) seems to be for a larger instant pot size. I had to follow the last step by boiling my noodles and the beans in a separate dish and adding them afterwards as with all of the ingredients prior to that point brought it to the max level of the IP. I will adjust accordingly next time. Read More
