We got one for x-mas. used it a couple times now. Not sure I believe the hype yet.  We use to boil and shred chicken 10 lbs at a time. It is faster and easier for that.

My wife made french onion soup in our instant pot tonight. It was tasty. I think it took longer to cut the onions than it did to cook.

Brisket was substituted with Chuck steak

Sherry was subbed with burgundy red wine

No celery

No fish sauce, I think she just used a dab extra Worcestershire

Two thumbs sideways in this one. Easily cooked and super tender but not as much teriyaki flavor as when done on the grill :dunno:

Easy peasy.

So I did this, made a full gallon.  It turned out thin, not sure how to thicken it.  I guess some folks put in powdered milk to thicken but I'd rather have it thin than do that.  I almost put in some corn starch but meh.  I'll just leave it thin.  It has a nice yogurt flavor, I took some out and added vanilla and sugar, and it's just like any other vanilla yogurt but runny.

I don't think I can strain out the whey with it being runny.

I also set aside a half cup for next batch starter, I hope that's enough of this weaker stuff.  This old gal said only 2 tbsp of starter so I'll go a lot more of the thinner stuff .

I used this stuff to get it all started:


The recipe on the box called for one pouch, I should have used both pouches because I made such a large batch.  This is heirloom yogurt culture which means you can use it over and over as long as you set some aside each time.  Other cultures are one time use.  I followed this old gal recipie for the curing and cook times.

for milk, I used:

1/2 gallon of walmart whole vitamin D milk.   (wife got the wrong stuff) 
1/2 gallon whole raw unpasturized milk from local dairy
 
mixed the two for a whole gallon, some of my issue may be with the milk.

Why use an instant pot for that? :dunno:

We use this to strain the whey for about 5-8 hours

Also consider picking up another set of gaskets as we have a dedicated yogurt one that doesn't get the flavors from the "curry" one and the general one.

We won't go back for sure.

The Instant Pot has been a total game changer with this year's deer. I made a pot roast with a big slab of whitetail neck -- meat that would normally become sausage -- and it was awesome. Also made the Carbonnade recipe from Shaw's book and it was surprisingly good. With both I browned the meat and then ran two cycles of the pot on the meat/stew setting.

I drained off all the whey, kept the yogurt in the fridge for about a week and now it's perfect.   I'll be doing this again.    :tup:

So I'm either doing something wrong or I'm not impressed. I'm probably a slightly above average cook, I've catered a few small events and had good feed back so I kind of feel like I know what I'm doing. Every recipe I try that I've cooked before either stove top or crock pot is pretty ho-hum. It cooks fast for sure but I'm just not getting the flavor that I'm used too :dunno:

Me and my son were talking about this, we think itís the speed at which it cooks things, not enough time to soak in the good yummy flavors.

But it is fast and sometimes thatís a plus IMHO.

re-read the first post, we're a nuclear family with kids in sports. It's a quick"er" way to get homemade food on without resorting to pizza's and boxed foods all the time.  We try to limit processed foods, we still use the crock pot, and smoker, and bbq, and grill but we also use an instant pot now too - it's been a welcome addition but certainly it isn't low and slow.

Who uses these things?   I got my wife a Duo Plus 8qt  9in1.  I consider them a quick, convenient way to put mediocre food in bellies without a lot of time or preparation.  Good food requires a lot of time and a smoker  :chuckle:



So far I got a couple frozen pork loin roasts with some apple slices and a splash of ACV, salt and white pepper.  Turned it on for 95 minutes.  No recipe, just tossed stuff in see how it turns out.  What's your favorite dish?
