  1. These were a soggy mess and I did not cook for the full time either. I’m still pretty new to the instant pot but I just knew this wouldn’t turn out… What a waste 🙁

    1. For crispy skin: preheat the oven to broiler. Arrange the Instant Pot cooked fries onto a baking sheet, and lightly spray with cooking oil. Broil for about 3-5 minutes.

  2. I tried broiling them, but they still weren’t crispy. The spices were excellent, though. Would make this again. Just don’t call them “fries.”

    1. Pleased to know that you liked the flavoring. If you like crispy fries, then you can deep fry them lightly after removing from the Instant Pot.
