  1. I tried this in my new pressure cooker and put it on a hoagie bun and it was delicious! I didn’t have tge pepperoncini so I used banana peppers instead

    1. Diced potatoes only take about 3-5 minutes in the Instant Pot. You could add them with 5 minutes remaining, but you will have to wait for the pot to come up to pressure a second time so it will take longer. Or you could cook them separately and serve them on the side.
