  1. Just want to shout out a THANK YOU for these amazing InstaPot recipes!!! I don't have to be searching any longer for recipes because I've found so many on this website. Thank for sharing!

  2. These are great. Instead of BBQ sauce, I used chile sauce. It looks like ketchup but more flavorful. It's sold in the ketchup section.
