The Instant Pot has become my new favorite tool in the kitchen. Rice has come out perfect and meat has come out nice and tender. Dinner is done in a fraction of the time, which is great for weeknights.
My younger daughter had gifted us with her Instant Pot. She did not want it anymore because she felt intimidated by it. The instant pot is a pressure cooker, it can be dangerous if you are not careful. Just ensure the seal is in good shape and wait to open the lid until the pressure is released.
So far I have made rice, chicken, pork, and beef tips in the Instant Pot. I have found that meat has come out nice and tender in about 30 minutes. To make white rice, for every cup of rice, you add 1 1/4 cups of water. Use the rice setting on the Instant Pot. The dish pictured below is beef tips with Mac and Cheese and creamed peas.
