    Betsy... The oatmeal came excellent. 3 minutes on porridge setting. I put sliced almonds, vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar and some light cream. **Stir n let sit few minutes; really gets those oats puffy. DELICIOUS!

    *waves at SJC* - good to see you!  The other thread is 2 years old and no one has posted to it in 6 months, I don't think there is anything wrong with starting a new thread.  Just my not-so-humble opinion ...

    I use my IP several times a week, sometimes almost every day.  Still the best new kitchen appliance I have found in years.  Always love to read new recipes and ideas.

    Here is the last IP cookbook I bought for Kindle just last month.  It's still priced at $1.20 as I type this and is the best all-round guide I have found yet.  Not only does he take the mystery (and 'pressure cooker' fears) out of the basic functions for the beginning user, he provides great charts and base recipes to fix things beyond the 100 recipes in the book.

    Please continue this thread. I would love to have a bunch of recipes all in one place. The other thread is old and has a lot of stuff in there other than recipes. This would make it much easier to find something to try.

    Crebel got me to pull mine out the other day again to make chicken soup. I just need ideas for the thing or I won't use it as much.

    The soup turned out great with some leftover veggies from the fridge, 4 cups of chicken bone broth, 1 lbs of chicken thighs frozen. Salt and pepper and some herbs. I'll make that again, especially as it gets colder.

    One of our favorite uses is actually making our own bone broth. We save all our bones in a bag in a freezer and when its full, we make a batch of bone broth and freeze in mason jars

    Are you using regular rolled oats, or steel cut oats? I use steel cut oats and have to cook for longer with the IP, maybe 9 minutes. Although I use the IP for many things, I have discovered that it is easier to use my Zojirushi rice cooker on porridge setting for my morning oatmeal.

    When I was still eating grains I think I used a recipe that had me doing 12 minutes as I also use the steel cut, not the instant type stuff. The one that takes like 20-30 minutes on the stove top. I don't eat oats anymore so haven't made it again. I used to make a batch and put it in small containers and then eat one each morning.

    I made this on Wednesday.  So easy. But next time I'll not try to brown the skin in the instant pot first. It all just stuck to the bottom of it. I found another site where they just put it in breast up and cook it. And for those that want crispy skin, they put it under the broiler after for a few. But to be honest, it was so moist and flavorful, I didn't need the crispy skin. I made keto chicken enchiladas with leftovers yesterday, ate some more for lunch the day before and I still have leftovers. I'll cut those up and freeze them for soup later. I took the bones and put them in the freezer, although I should have taken it apart that evening while it was warm. I tried doing it the next day cause I was lazy and it was hard to cut the meat out since it was cold. so there are some meats still on the bone when I make broth later.

    Today I made egg custard to take to the coast with us. In the past I have made it in custard cups, but this time I made it in one pan which makes it easier to travel.

    I am new to the Instant Pot and am still learning.  I made posole soup and cannot believe how moist the pork chunks were.  It was easy and cooked in no time at all.  I think I am going to like this thing.

    2  14.5 cans golden hominy (drained)
    1  4 oz. can chopped green chilies    (I use frozen roasted chilies and use a bit more than 4 oz. to taste)
    1  medium onion, diced
    2  cloves garlic, minced
    1  lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut up     or    diced pork  which I like better
    1  14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
    2  14.5 oz. cans reduced sodium chicken broth
    1  tsp. dried oregano, crushed
    1/2  tsp. ground cumin
    2   Tbl. fresh cilantro, chopped

    I sauteed onion, garlic and pork in pot then added rest of ingredients
    put on lid and set pressure release to Sealing. Press Cancel button to reset program and select Soup and set cooking for 20 minutes
    Let pressure release naturally for 10/ 15 minutes and then move Pressure Release to venting to release steam. 
    It's done. Can garnish with sour cream (I don't)

    I made the pozole, pretty much like the recipe. We just added some sliced radishes and shredded cabbage at the end. It was so good. I used cut up pork shoulder. I'll make this again and again.

    Thanks for that one prairiesky

    A couple of days ago my IP Ultra, a little over a year old, gave up the ghost. I plugged it in....nothing. I had my husband go check the breaker box, but all was fine out there. Mind you, I have (or had) 3 IPs. a 3qt, a 6qtDUO (my original that now lives at my DIL's house), and my IP Ultra, which is (was) my workhorse. A few days earlier I received a new 6 qt DUO in the mail from my brother as a Christmas gift. I chuckled as I told him thank you, but I really don't need 4 IPs. I sent the new one back 4 days before my Ultra went belly-up. I hopped onto Amazon, put a new 6qt DUO in my cart. By the time I went to place the order, the 6 qt was out of stock. I went back a few hours later, and it was back in stock for $10 cheaper! I pounced on it, and a few hours later discovered it was now $10 more. Not sure what is happening, but I am expecting my new 6 qt IP to arrive tomorrow.

    One thing I have gotten into the habit of since using the IP frequently is to cool, pour into a freezer ziploc bag, and freeze any/all broths.  I reuse them for the next batch of IP cooking or as really wonderful base for soups as the flavor concentrates each time you use them for your pressure liquid.

    Everybody else is probably already doing this, but it was kind of a "duh" moment for me to understand I was creating awesome vegetable/beef/pork/chicken broth every time I was using the IP and that it would continue to amp up the broth flavor if I used it again the next time.

    Dipping my toe into the IP waters. I was given an IP for Christmas...2017... but after one okay meal and one "How did I make that burned and mushy at the same time?", I put it away for my enameled cast iron.

    Then my husband decided he really wants to try keto, and bought a keto instant pot cookbook for me. (He knows I like to get a cookbook, go through and try three or four recipes, and then adjust the seasoning levels from the author's taste to our taste, and cook my way through until bored, then find another cookbook. It's a hobby!) So now I'm gingerly working my way through the learning curve.

    Will keep an eye out here for cool recipes to try!
