I've had fall off the bone ribs in my Instant Pot and I set the timer for25 minutes - here's the recipe I followed https://mommyshomecooking.com/instan...barbecue-ribs/
Also, the co-worker saying to add 10 minutes to everything you cook in it is dead wrong. I've used mine for about 14 months now a few times a week at least and have never seen the need for that.

Ah dude turned out awesome. I didn't use a specific recipe because I was just doing a traditional pork roast meal so seared the sides of the roast, little sea salt, pepper, stuffed some sliced garlic into the roast and some thyme. House smelt so damn good. Meat was falling off the bone, don't have to pull shit. I always plan multiple meals out of meats like this so I got some pretzel buns for this weekend. I already basically got the meat so i'm just going to make either that glaze from that recipe you posted earlier or if i'm too lazy grab a bottle of sweet baby rays from the pantry. Either way supremely happy with the way it cooked a roast.

Has anyone here done boiled peanuts in one of these things? My wife bought one a little while ago, and I've had a craving for boiled peanuts recently.

We picked one of these up 1.5 weeks ago. We've used it for almost every meal since then. Tomorrow, we find out if it does better ribs than my 6 hour Big Green Egg ribs. Tonight's honey bourbon chicken was some of the best chicken I've ever had. This is a no-brainer kitchen appliance, if you're on the fence.

Check out the Instant Pot Community on FB. You can find a discussion about just about anything. First result that came up was this recipe: http://www.loveyourself247365.com/fa...nt-pot-recipe/

Thanks, I'll check it out. I tried doing a google search for "Instant Pot boiled peanuts" and the number of recipes that popped up was a little overwhelming, to be honest.

I'm still grappling with the Finnish language, meaning I'm buying cuts of meat that turn out to be not what I expected.

In this case, what recipes could work for a piece of silverside beef?

Finally made it, unfortunately a little dry but I have two more portions of the loin I bought so I won't have to search around again for a while...

That glaze though.


All about the glaze, I might have to try Montreal seasoning, something I don't have to actually buy since I already have it. I used the poultry seasoning alternative because I was not about to spend $7 on .6 ounces of ground sage.


WAY LATE EDIT: Another store other than the meat market (which had it on sale when I bought it) in the main town of the county I live in of course put pork loin on sale that Sunday, if I waited a day I could've saved five bucks. -.-

So I know you have to give time for pressure to build up, but is it normal for it to take 15-20 minutes before the timer actually starts? That's a rough estimate, but it is definitely a big chunk of time when you're saying it takes ~38 minutes to do stew but it ends up being closer to an hour.

I'm fine with it, just want to be sure I'm not missing something.

That is perfectly normal. I find that it reaches max pressure much faster if the saute function is used for a few minutes before putting on the lid. Otherwise it takes a while to heat up and reach pressure. Just heating the food and liquid until you see a few tiny bubbles should cut some of that initial time.

Yeah, I'll take the build-up time considering it's still often much faster than other methods and you can walk away from it. That's the real beauty of it.

Yup. Prepare the ingredients. Toss it all in. Leave to go workout or watch an episode of something. Dinner is ready. No babysitting required.

It can definitely take that long if you have a whole bunch of stuff/liquid in there. Just one of those things you need to keep i mind.

First attempt at carnitas last night turned out wonderfully. Browning the meat at the end in a cast-iron skillet is essential.

Nice that looks great! I'll usually do that or I'll get a cooking tray, move a rack to the top in the oven and use the broiler.

Ribs are probably my favorite thing to make so far in the short time I've had mine. Just so easy to cut up the slab, pressure cook, then broil to finish.

Somewhat related: What's the best & least expensive way for me to find a 220V Instant Pot in the United States? I know they're sold in the EU & listed on Amazon UK, but wondering if there are better options.

Nice, that sounds pretty good and simple. Did you feel it was missing some spices or something?

Also got a new rib recipe so I'm excited to try that out hopefully try out and report back.

FYI, there's a Facebook group dedicated to Vietnamese Instant Pot recipes. :) My girlfriend and I are going to make pho one of these weekends but like you said it's a lot of work (and ingredients that we don't have laying around lol). Too bad we'll never really get the chance to bring it to family gatherings since other family members usually have pho covered.

We made stuffed bell peppers last night and they were yummy! Though when I put them under the broiler to finish they were too close to the flame and the tops got crispier faster than I expected. XD Still good though.

welp, making my first meal (chicken fried rice ) with the Duo MINI. I'm a bit paranoid about it thing like exploding or something. I did the water steam test - and just had a small hissing problem. The venting valve seems very sensitive to the slight misalignment. Trying to decide if I want to saute everything on the stovetop rather than in the instant pot itself

Not necessarily, no. I'm just used to adding Cajun sausage and carrots in my chili..kinda missed it. It was fine beyond that..

Whisk up the Salt and Water.

Make sure it is completely dissolved.

Donít taste it, unless you want to gag! 🙂

I wonder if you can float in it.

Like the Dead Sea.

I went to the High School in Israel.

We floated in the Dead Sea.

It was salty!

Thanks for this. I no longer have to imagine how James Joyce would have approached his cooking blog.

How do you wash the potato skins? I usually peel them when I make potatoes, so I have no idea how to cook them with the skin still on.

Made this last night, new recipe for me. Lamb was on sale at the store.

It skips the browning step I guess because of the marinade. I also kicked it up a bit with cayenne.

I make them constantly. Plain, cajun, they all come out delicious. Just make sure to weigh the peanuts down using the trevet and a heavy bowl to keep the peanuts submerged.

Just scrub them like you would for baked potatoes or fries, and then toss them in the pot. Potato skins are the best.

So, I decide to experiment yesterday with some baby back ribs..SUCCESS! I soaked the 3 lbs of ribs in a Ziploc bag with 1 1/2 cups of Goya mojo criollo for 2 hours. Cut it into 3 parts and tossed it and the mojo in the Instant Pot for 20 minutes..20 minutes of natural release. Brushed 1/2 cup of Baby Ray's barbeque sauce on the ribs and baked it on 375 for 10 minutes.

Fall off the bone goodness..it was a struggle just getting it out of the pot without falling apart lol.

How do you seal it? Mine used to have trouble sealing if i just put the lid on and turn it on. Now I turn it on, let it get really steamy then slam and quickly seal the lid. The valve instantly shuts.

It's probably the ring not being on properly, or maybe the release valve stuff is not in place.

Or the ring is getting dirty/damaged?

My pot sometimes steams/whistles for a little while before it builds enough pressure to actually seal, but it always seals by itself.

I had this issue on the 8 qt. Take the valve off entirely and then reseat it.
