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!

its like a burrito but instead of eating it in a tortilla you just east it out of a bowl. In the spirit of full disclosure I didn't know either until I found the recipe

Got one of these instant pots for Christmas. I am going to attempt seafood chowder today. I am curious to see if they are as great as advertised.

I did a chicken at 45 min, little over cooked but still juicy. I think 25 and resting would do it.

Make sure it's instant pot brand with the stainless steel inner cooking pot.   I got the wrong one and it didn't last, the teflon came off in just a few months.  Also with the instant pot there's big online community facebook support groups with some cool recipes, they kinda shun other brands and won't let you post images showing other brands.."oh you got xxx brand, I don't know how those work"  etc..

I just picked up the duo plus 80  9-in-1 instant pot, it's the bigger 8QT pot with the most settings.  There's other 8QT models, but they don't have as much bling  :chuckle:

Beans were a miserable failure. I think I needed more water and long cooking time

That sucks, but ya the beans will soak up your water and go dry.

I made them quite a few times, what I like to do now is a quick pressure cook to swell up the beans a little (but not soft yet) then drain/rinse them.  That gets out the gas inducing tannins..

then add your onions, ham, and other flavorings then finish cooking the rest of the way.

I find my instapot is pretty lame as a crock pot. I have yet to have it work. It does work great using the pressure cooker settings. I dont eat yogurt so havent tried that feature. I could look up recipes and stuff but meh that is not how I cook. I just experiment until I like how it turns out.

Seafood chowder came out pretty good. First time I tried using an instant pot and will tweak a few things on the next pass. Going to have to find some more recipes to try.

That is way too long. I typically sear the chicken first but even if I donít I want to say, longest Iíve pressure cooked chicken is 12 min. Usually more like 5-10 if I seared first.

Google ThisOldGal for recipes.  I've used them and all the ones I've tried have been spot on.  I amend it after that but first time cooks I'll trust the oldgal.  We make 2 quarts of greek yogurt a week now with no added sugar just whole milk and some saved yogurt for starter.  Won't ever go back to store bought.
