  1. It would be nice if you could include instructions for a stove top pressure cooker. Not all of us have an instant pot.



  2. Honestly, 4 minutes was way too much, came out well done, almost burned…..Im sure it would be just as good to stirfry like I normally do…pieces are small enough to cool up tender…..
