    I don’t have an IP but I do have a pressure cooker and I think I’ll try the roast recipe @Copa. Having moved to CO a few years ago, I just can’t seem to get a moist roast, so I’m excited to try that. I don’t generally use the pressure cooker much – mostly I forget I have it. But I have made applesauce in it and it was the best applesauce ever – and so simple!

    @ladyinpurplenotred, I made the cheesy lentils and brown rice last night – sooooo yummy and sooooo easy! Easiest recipe I’ve tried yet. That one will be on heavy rotation in our house. Thanks!

    I thought this was going to be about brownies.

    @lianne so glad you liked them!

    I made chipotle style rice in it this weekend. So easy and delicious!

    I have the day off and am currently doing some batch cooking for the week. This chili is a long-time favorite of mine — easy to make (you can dump everything in one pot without even browning the meat), makes a ton of food, and the leftovers freeze well. I just dumped it all into my Instant Pot to see how it goes.

    ETA: Haven’t tasted it yet, but I weighed the total amount so that I can easily portion it out. It made over 5.5 lbs of food.

    That’s a lot of food! Haha!

    I made chicken breasts in it last night; seared them on both sides and then pressure cooked for 5 minutes with a 5 minute natural release. They were so juicy and delicious! My husband and I couldn’t believe how quick it was (20 minutes from starting dinner to on the table) to make dinner.

    I made this goulash/american chop suey the other week and it was also a hit: https://www.idonthavetimeforthat.com/instant-pot-goulash/

    Yeah, when I make that recipe, I usually eat it for lunch every day for a week and still have leftovers. I was stunned by how fast everything cooked, though.

    When you made your chicken breasts, did you have to add liquid in there to pressure cook them?

    I want to try using my Instant Pot as a slow cooker soon. I’m hesitant to get rid of my (very old, dented, but well-loved) Crockpot until I know it works.

    I received an Instant Pot as a birthday gift last fall. I tried this recipe last night and it was very good! I did broil the meatloaf for the 3 minutes it said, but don’t feel like it really needed that.

    Yes. I did two good size breasts. Seared them for about 4 mins per side, then took them out, added ~1 cup of water, and put in the trivet. Then added them back in, on top of the trivet. Seasoned them with whatever I wanted before searing.

    Thanks! I keep forgetting it came with a trivet because I have yet to use it!
