So you guys can use a Instant Pot, but who can make perfect, non-chunky rue for gravy in a skillet ? I can do it flawlessly.

Wife has had one for a while. I hate crock pots as many leaner meats end up dry. Not so with this bad boy. I love the whole frozen chickens that just fall apart. Dry beans that come out perfect. My wife has a beans, lentils and ham hock recipe that I love and despite the different cook times they turn out great.

We have one. Got it as a gift and ended up really liking it after playing with it for a bit. Being able to brown the meat before cooking in the same pot is one of my favorite things, one less pot to clean. The weirdest trick so far, hard boiled eggs. As many eggs as you want, one cup water, 4 minutes on high pressure and the best part is the shells come right off.

This was a surprisingly good dinner, Pork Carnitas

My wife likes this one, you can cook rice and dinner in the same pot without mixing them

Also, we got a silicone lid/cover so we can just put the whole pot in the fridge if there's leftovers and re-heat them the next day. Here's the amazon link to the cover if you're interested - http://amzn.to/2DyMQCh

I make a pretty good gravy, and I could make it in the instant pot.  Add in some corn starch and put the instant pot on browning mode, and make some gravy.
I don't like flour on beef or chicken gravy, mostly just sausage gravy gets flour and I'll often brown the flour some first to tone down that raw flour flavor a bit.

Only problem with the instant pot is the water is still in the drippings whereas a more traditional method would condense the drippings (evap off the water)
So most likely I'd transfer the drippings to a huge cast iron skillet and condense it, then thicken it.

Mac and cheese is the best! Boiled eggs are good too. Bought the eight quart for my wife last year and really like it. Meatloaf w/potatoes on the bottom, Pizza pasta, baked potatoes, french dip and we keep looking for more dishes.  :twocents:

just got the egg rack in the mail so I can steam cook hard boiled eggs.   I read that the steamed eggs peel a ton better than boiled eggs  :tup:


we will see

We got one for Christmas and have made rice, Mongolian beef (venison) and venison roast. The venison roast was super tender and so far my wife and I are loving it.

Mmmm, used ours for squirrel soup tonight.  Four frozen squirrels, three cups water, chicken boullion and 40 minutes to falling off the bone tender, cut veggies while cooking and cooling, pulled the squirrels, dumped the veggies in with some basil and black pepper, and set it on slow cooker.  By the time I finished picking the meat off the four squirrels, the veggies only had about another fifteen minutes to cook.  Tossed in some precooked egg noodles... YUM!

Water gravy is a failure in my book. Gotta make it with flour and heavy whipping cream........ :tup:
