Instant Pot French Fries without CrispLid

So I know many people don’t have the CrispLid yet, and they still wanna make healthy pressure cooker french fries. That’s why I created this recipe :]

The potatoes in this dish are really tasty, however they are not as crisp as the original recipe or the regular fried french fries.

So in fact you make something like baked potato strips.

    1. I’m using a simple knife since I’m an old fashioned guy :]
      On this recipe unfortunately, the fries are not that crisp as I mentioned above.

    1. Glad they were tasty.
      It’s hard to make them crispy without broiling them at the end. Without that step, the potatoes are more like boiled \ baked potatoes.

  1. I just made these. As others said, they were not crispy. I found they were like baked potatoes. I left the skin on my potatoes. I love potatoes in pretty much every form, so I’m not upset by the outcome. I simply have ideas for the next time I make these.
