Well this lil pot is pretty neat, I googles and found directions for its use. I've only used it to cook a chuck roast and port roasts. I must say it makes the best most tender roast. One day I cooked a roast my normal method in the oven and no one in the house liked it anymore. With this pot it is so tender. I think some shredded barbecue would do nicely too, but my dh is the only person on earth who doesn't like barbecue so.. He is a meat & potato guy too. No salt anymore due to kidneys failing. This is a pain because I like processed frozen food when I am in a hurry but they are all high in sodium.

That's pretty neat that you got to inherit this little gem. It is amazing, isn't it how tender stuff comes out. It must be hard for you husband with kidney problems...and hard to cook and be super careful about salt. I'm sorry he has that. But it might be that you are becoming a very innovative cook. And less salt is healthy for all of us.

Asta'mom...you can still make lamb curry without the Instant pot. lol. It is still super good. That's another thing I made without a recipe a couple of times and it was before I had this appliance...just made it on the stove. Or you could make it in the oven. I just chopped up some lamb that I borrowed from the dogs (it was the dog's lamb when I was feeding raw. lol) And seared it, chopped up an onion, lots of garlic and I think I used some carrots, potatoes and a rutabaga or some such tasty root vegetable. I like parsley and grow it so I am quite sure, if memory serves me, I probably put in a handful of that and rosemary. OMG Rosemary is so good. Then let's see...a person could use cilantro if one likes that...just a little. I also like Mexican tarragon which I grow in my herb garden. That's wonderful stuff and a pretty plant with little yellow flowers. Oh, and fennel! Wonderful. I don't think I put all that in though. I just keep thinking of things that are so fun to grow and have at my disposal. And some of those things would be good in lamb stew.

And then I totally cheat and put in a bottle (or more) of Trader Joe's yellow curry sauce that comes in a bottle. It's not that spicy so if you need a little kick, you can add a dash or two of Cayenne pepper. And some broth...enough so it's a nice consistency and gives you some juicy stuff to dip your french bread or any kind of hard bread into. And then at the end I stir in some coconut cream from a can...very thick and nice. I got Trader Joe's but you could use any kind.

Tell us how your cabbage tasted once you make it. It's so good and to me it's like candy. Very healthy except for the salt, which you really need in this. Oh and except for the bacon. lol. But there's not that much in there. Or you can use less. One time I didn't have any bacon so I just made it anyhow and it was pretty good. But it's better with bacon. Everything's better with bacon, no? lol.

Thanks you for your kind words.. a good cook I'll never be but am I am starting to get ideas on how to cut salt. Last night we had fajitas, now I usually take a packet of seasoning and ix it in but this time I kept one chicken breast (cut up) aside for his. I told him he could add 1-2 small pieces if he wanted flavor but I think all the onions n peppers helped. We all love how tender and moist meat is in the pot. My husband always liked his meat well down, so well done it could bounce off the plate, lol the rest of us just ate dry meat. Now we all like it and he does too. I may try some beef stew. I guess you would add the veggies in when its about halfway done

I wouldn't say that Mufar...that a good cook you'll never be because you can do anything if and when you're interested enough in it. At least I'm pretty sure of that. But maybe you're not so into it. I wasn't a good cook. I'm still not a great cook by any means. But I became more interested in it rather recently...just a few years ago. And I looked things up, asked questions of people who most consider very good cooks. And while it's not my first passion where hobbies are concerned, I am more interested than I use to be. And the more curious I am, the more I experiment and check out stuff online, the better my food seems to turn out. At least some of it. lol. I made something a while back that was so bad, I just tossed all those ingredients. I felt awful wasting all that but it was too salty so it got dumped. But seriously, I think the degree of one's interest in something is what helps determine how well they do something.

Would an IP be useful for this kind of cooking? I grill, roast or pan cook practically every meat entrée.

so today only walmart is advertising the 6 qt ip lux60 for $69 plus free shipping. it's also $69 at amazon. this model does not have as many fancy features as others, but i have the 3 qt model and it's more than adequate for the straightforward stuff. the reason for getting the larger model is so you don't have to struggle with fitting everything in the pot. amazon also has the ip 6 qt for $79 and the 6 qt duo plus for $99.95. maybe check amazon or the instant pot dot com site itself for easy comparison of features of all models.

"LOL. I was looking back to see what you could possibly mean. hahahahaha. And then I saw that I meant to take a little look and spelled peek like Pikes Peak. LOL. OMG! How sloppy of me...kind of like my "recipes." Yep, I'm terrible that way. I think I inherited it from my grandmother. There's a recipe from her that says, "put ingredients in the green bowl." ROFLOL. Yep, It's fly by the seat of your pants when you follow one of my recipes. I really should start measuring and figuring out what I do and write it down. No two spaghetti sauces are exactly alike or any home made soups. While I'm not the best cook in the world with other things, I do get compliments on my home made soups and spaghetti sauce. People ask for my recipes and I have to tell them that I don't have a recipe exactly. lol."

I don't really notice typos. I usually just see what was meant . I enjoyed your recipes because it shows Art in cooking. Cooking starts like a science but it's the art that makes it special!

Patk, thanks for the info. I need to read thru some manuals and go stand in front of each size, I think. And, I understand there's accessories .

Poodle beguiled..yes I guess you are right. Interest has a lot to do with it. This lil pot does help spark interest.

I posted a link to a description of the models on the last post of the first page.


Here's a site that shows a lot of accessories. The only thing I have, which I already had is the simple steamer shown. It works for me. But the big one with the handle might be nice. I haven't bought anything else. My regular pot holders work fine. But you might find some additional things useful. I'd wait and see how you get along first and then you'll know better what things you can't live without. lol. I think I'd like those stackable steamer pans maybe.

if you're able to do that, it would be best. even the 3 qt is bulky, so the amount of counter space available can be an issue. also, one reason i like the ip duo plus 6qt is the ability to store the lid on the handle while accessing cooked items. i don't like, for example, placing a lid into even a scrupulously clean sink if it's going to end up back in possible contact with food in the pot. and i can't claim my sink is always scrupulously clean. anyone who rinses chicken, for example, (even after all the warnings not to) then goes on to cook without scrubbing the sink, very likely does not have a scrupulously clean sink. guilty!
