It is fantastic to save time cooking meat like beef stew and carnitas. For dishes that could take hours, the high heat and pressure makes meat melt-in-your-mouth tender. I love opening the pot after the steam is released and seeing everything inside, it’s like opening a present; a delicious present.
Instead of the difficulty of old style pressure cookers, you can cook with a modern Instant Pot with the turn of a lid and the press of a few buttons. One thing to pay attention to is whether the recipe calls for letting the steam release naturally or if the release valve should be used. If you do use the release valve, make sure to use it carefully. I am so glad to have a device that is such an improvement on those old, fussy pressure cookers.
