  1. This was so delicious. The only thing I changed was leaving mixed garlic in the pot before adding wine. Sooooooo delicious!!!

  2. It takes much longer than 15 minutes. The instaPot takes a very long time to build pressure just for two minutes of cooking.

    1. Instant Pot indeed needs some time to build enough pressure to start cooking. In my first recipes, I used to add this time to the cooking & total time in the recipe details.
      However, it really made the users confused and I got many comments like “why you say ‘cook for 10 minutes’ while you mention that the cooking time is 25 minutes? What is the right time? What should I do? What is an Instant Pot? Who am I ? Why the earth rotates? etc. So I changed it and now I’m showing only the actual cooking time to prevent confusion.
