The best bolognese sauces are slow-cooked, so go find that slow cooker I know you have! Here’s the recipe for the best and easiest slow cooker bolognese sauce ever.
I truly thought my beef barley soup work was done forever with my beloved slow cooker version that I have been making for years and years. That, however, was before I got my mitts on my Instant Pot, and after having made glorious beef stew and scrumptious barbecue, visions of an Instant Pot version of beef barley soup started dancing in my head.
And I realized that while some days it would be fine to let my beef barley soup cook all day in the slow cooker, there were going to be days when I wanted my soup and I wanted it NOW. Or at least, within the hour. And so I present my newest beef barley soup crush: Instant Pot Beef Barley Soup. Let’s make it!
The Southern husband feels about barbecue the way I feel about bacon, and since he is currently residing with me up in the North, far far away from our favorite bbq joint, I take every opportunity to work on my barbecue skills. So it was inevitable that one of the first recipes I came up with for our spanking new Instant Pot was this one for Instant Pot Beef Barbecue. It turns what is usually an all day cooking affair into a quick couple of hours, with most of those hours just letting the barbecue cook into tender, sweet yet spicy deliciousness.
Ready to barbecue up your Instant Pot? Let’s make it!
I do love me some chicken and dumplings in all kinds of ways – the classic version, the soup version – you name it, if it has “chicken” and “dumpling” in the title I am THERE. So you know that this was one of the very first recipes I needed to adapt for my Instant Pot, because the only thing better than chicken and dumplings is a recipe that makes chicken and dumplings in a super speedy way. Ready to get this comfort food favorite on the table lightning-fast? Let’s make it!
Are you the proud new (or proud experienced) owner of an Instant Pot? ME TOO! And if you just got yours over the holidays, I bet you are dying to rev it up and give it a spin. I got mine a few months ago, so I’ve done a whole bunch of test runs for us, and I’m here to tell you that if you make rice, or grits, or hardboiled eggs on any type of regular basis your life is about to change. But I gotta say that my current favorite Instant Pot creation is one that I came up with on my own, and that’s this rich, hearty beef stew. Which is now ready in under an hour, as opposed to the eons it takes in the slow cooker or the regular old stove.
So…ready to make beef stew in a reasonable amount of time on a weeknight? Get out that Instant Pot and let’s make it!
