  1. I am confused. You said 30 was a misprint and should have been 3. Saut'e time is 5 and pressure time is 5. What is 3? I am new to INSTANT POT and have used many of your recipes(10)so far. Every one has really been great. Thank You Bob

  2. Why is everyone so concerned about having excess juices, this isn't a sandwich filler your making, it's a stew. Mop up the excess with some bread and enjoy.

  3. Made it! Added three chopped carrots, two stalks of chopped celery, some Cajun seasoning and it was absolutely perfect and delicious. That’s not bad coming from a Louisiana boy!

  4. Made this with substituting bell peppers with carrots and zucchini and use beer for the broth. It was excellent! When Corrie say don't NPR after it's finished don't! 😉

  5. My Instant Pot indicates not to pressure cook without 18 oz of fluid but the recipe only calls for 4-6 oz. It was my first try with the IP so I went with 2 cups and while the recipe had good flavor (added chopped peppers, celery, dill, garlic, and cayenne) the extra chicken stock wasn’t a good idea. Had to drain it off. I’ll try it again with less liquid but because this was my first attempt I felt I had to follow what the IP book stated.

  6. Tried and tested. Potatoes crumbled, lots of water left over, had to drain it. This recipe needs to be reworked.

      1. My potatoes crumbled and there was lots of leftover juice... perhaps need to use less water and use potato halves.
