Yes, the stew is called slanutka so it has passed the food inspector aka mom. It is very easy, composed of eggplant, sweet peppers, onion, carrot, chick peas and spices. If I were to make tacos, I would have to ring the priest for an exorcism of the Instant Pot after!

Yes, and I think the priest would agree to the exorcism after he ate a few tacos - while Mom wasn't looking of course.

I am off to look up that recipe up - the last thing I made from you was a huge hit, but all I remember about it was the paprika. I'd forgotten just how much good flavor paprika has.

Do you use dried chick peas? I try to not used canned stuff unless I have to.

When I use the word slanutka I can't find anything in English, but that recipe has things I like.

I thought to myself that maybe my mother will attempt to cook tripe in the Instant Pot if she sees it works well. I imagine it will take a very much shorter time. Help.....

Yes, I use dried chick peas but if I am lazy I buy canned from a "good" Italian brand. The cans are lined.

That recipe is similar but here, I will share the one I will use.

1/2 eggplant
3 - 4 carrots
2 onions
1 sweet pepper
1 cup dried chick peas
handful of baby spinach
1 tbsp of smooth peanut butter
vegetable or chicken broth
Variety of spices: cumin, dried oregano, dried rosemary, salt and turmeric.

As for instructions / method, I will learn that tomorrow.

Yes, I think Mom's tripe recipe would be far faster in the new toy, but I am not sure if her heart can deal with so much stress. What is these pots are like computers and have those "things" popping up out of them? Tripe is something that requires being tenderized so I really think it would work out well.

Peanut butter! I never would have guess that, but except for the eggplant itself I have everything. Of course, I'd use the entire eggplant - what could I do with the other 1/2?

Ha! I don't know the story about your mom, but I've had tacos that felt like an exorcism before.

I couldn't help myself. I'm making chicken for tomorrow. It's in the pot now. I modified a coconut curry recipe-- it's Greek yogurt, lemon, yellow curry, turmeric, coconut and raisins. Tomorrow I'll pick up cilantro to garnish.

Hah, my mom was horrified by my instant pot. I had to break it down for her that it's just a pressure cooker you have a lot of control over - and pressure cookers have been around since I don't know...the 1800s? There's no "witchcraft" involved, as she put it lol.

I actually use mine mostly for boring tasks like making hard boiled eggs and cooking rice. But I need to start using it to make meals again. Hell, I need to start cooking again, period.

When you have time, or care to share, can I have this recipe? It sounds good!

This is the recipe I started with. I swapped some things, though, because I didn't have them. I just checked it and reset it for 10 more minutes because my chicken breasts were super thick.

Update:

Meh. The meat is really tender and shredded very easily. But...
Not crazy about the amount of lemon. Too bitter. Honestly think it would be better to leave it out entirely. But it's not a waste. Tomorrow I'll make Jasmine rice or see if I can find naan at the store.

The story about Mom is central European Moms think anything not native to their homeland - regardless of where they live now - is offal from the devil.

Tacos? Evil. Thai food? Evil. East Indian food? Evil.

You get the idea. ;-)

OK, latest test recipe. My photo looks like sh*t, but the flavor is very good. The only thing I changed from the original recipe was that I used all ground beef instead of a mix of beef/pork because I just didn't have any.

Lesson learned: Pressure cook everything half-way, then open and add sweet potatoes if you want them to stay a bit firm. These just turned to mush and that's not how I prefer my veggies.

Favorite part: Preps in under 15 mins, cooks in 10 mins. Made dinner for three people in 25 mins with leftovers.

I do have a bunch of kitchen gadgets, but most of them are for cake and cookie decorating, a hobby that my friends love me for!

This though, this looks interesting....may have to try one.

TOTALLY thought this.

I have had one of these for about 2 yrs now. Only its called an electric pressure cooker here. My hub got it for me as he knows I like the old school ones. Originally we needed a gift for a cousin's wedding. So he bought two after watching an infomercial.

I was pretty skeptical at first.
Its good for a lot of things, mostly I use the saute feature and the pressure cooker feature. Have not tried rice in it.
I like it for quick meals. Agree on not putting potatoes in right off as they do turn to mush.
I have come home from work after forgetting to take out anything from the freezer.
Grabbed two packs of frozen chicken drumsticks and tossed them into the cooker, added some herbs like rosemary, and thyme a pinch of garlic powder, olive oil, pepper and salt. Usually have a half finished can of beer in the fridge I didnt finish and add that. Or stock, or water/bullion
Set the cooker for like 20 min. (hint, the cooker has to come up to pressure before the 20 min starts) then forget it.
Maybe make some rice on the side and a few veggies or a salad...and ta da!!
Done.

Made a killer pork roast in it the other night. Thought I'd have leftovers.
Woke up the next morning and my son finished it all off. lol.
That was also semi defrosted..hence why I used the pressure cooker.

I need to order a new seal I think. still works but I need back up for it.

Good point! I do forget that part. I was making this chili with about 45 mins to spare before I needed to leave the house and forgot that it would take a little extra to pressurize. I had to quick release the valve and just leave it on the counter because I was running late.

But the cooking speed is definitely what I'm loving about this thing. And, it doesn't heat up our house like stove-top cooking which is a huge bonus.

I noticed that a pile of potatoes in the house was starting to stare at us. I cut out the eyes, sliced them (unpeeled) about 1/2" thick, set them aside.

I took half a package of bacon and used the saute feature to cook it. Removed the bacon, left the fat in the pot. Tossed in half a rough-chopped onion, some garlic. Turned off the pot. Added 4 cups of chicken stock and about 2T butter. Put the potatoes and bacon back in the pot. High pressured for 6 mins. Opened it up, added 1 cup of milk, a cup of shredded Colby-jack and some brussel sprouts I had leftover in the fridge. Put in back on under low pressure for 3 mins.

Too much stock, but other than that it's got amazing flavor and those ugly potatoes aren't getting trashed.

You can mash a portion of the potatoes and mix it back in or use some corn starch to thicken it - or do a combo of both.

I like think soups though.

Perhaps I should eat more think soups and less thick soups?

Ha! Through thick and think, might be a new way to describe conscious eating plans.

In yours, it's possible to can. We can't in the Instant Pot. That might be a nice feature, I've never done it.
