    this is so simple but one of my favorites. Use it with beef or venison. One packet of dry onion soup ( I use the Liptons brand that come in a blue box) and a cup of water. Let cook all day. That's it. But it's SO GOOD. |

    I LOVE this!!! I make it all the time too, but instead of water, I use root beer. (or I've also used Diet Dr. Pepper)
    Holy deliciousness!!!

    We make this regularly (yesterday, actually): http://allrecipes.com/recipe/25147/sarges-ez-pulled-pork-bbq/. I cook it then weigh out my portion and add bottled BBQ sauce after the fact. The tips on adding liquid smoke are right-on.

    SO easy. Usually I'll make some rice in the rice cooker and set the timer, so everything is done when I get home from work. I'll zap some frozen veggies in the microwave to round it all out.

    Do the same thing in an Instantpot if you got one. Much faster and much better tasting and texture for some reason.

    Don't have one. I've been holding out, but starting to really, really want one. We're a busy family. I think an Instant Pot is a worthwhile appliance (I'm choosy about letting new appliances in).

    Instantpot is many tools all in one and does ALL very very well.
    It will replace your slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, egg boiler etc. etc. Unlike air fryers, this is a worth buying tool.

    Do you have any suggestion on which model to buy, assuming it is best to go w/ the IP brand?

    Any will do. I have the IP 60 duo. Does everything I need it to do.
    You can go fancy and get new ones with blutooth etc... but I dont see the reason for it, yet.
    You can also get the bigger version if you are cooking large meals for big family or want lots of leftovers.

    I have both the Duo 60 and 80. Most weekends they are both being used simultaneously. I tend to use the 8 qt for soups and broths and everything else goes in the 6 qt.

    I would definitely need two, because I usually have that many things going on at once. Like my Crock Pot + Rice Cooker need wouldn't go away, but maybe this would simplify it.

    I have the Ultra and I love it. I like the digital lights though, and the dial..I am a marketers dream. I would honestly not know what to do without this things. Best. Thing. Ever. Except for coffee (I digress).

    I also have an extra insert for the smaller one so, many times, I have one on deck . I guess you can say, I really like and use my mine. :)

    @crazyravr Thank you for the IP suggestion.

    I got the IP DUO80 this weekend. Rocked out my steel cut oats recipe in 40 minutes, beginning to end, versus overnight in the slow cooker. Bonus: IP insert doesn't max out my kitchen scale, so full portions are easier to weigh.

    I've got the dueling crock-pot/instant pot going on now: the instant pot just finished a lovely mushroom risotto, crock pot is channeling Anupy Singla and cooking a spicy eggplant stew. I try to do more vegetarian meal prepping during lent so I have something to eat on Friday.

    I am new to the instant pot - just got one. How do you figure out how long to cook stuff? I want to try the pulled pork ! But last nite I just cooked corn on cob ... 3 minutes like it said ... and it ran out of water and almost burned the corn.

    Whatever you were doing with the corn, you were doing it wrong.
    The IP comes with an instructional book that also has some basic recipes. Read that before you use it again. Also watch some youtube videos.

    I thought I did it correct. It said 1 cup of water, add the corn, and cook for 3 minutes. This is what I did, and the water was completely gone, and the corn was starting to stick to the bottom of the pot. Maybe because I only had 2 ears of corn in it? But thank you for the links

    Thank for so much for the easy... first recipe on the link ! I think I realized when I made the corn that I forgot to "seal" the top. The eggs are now cooling, so I am anxious to see how they turned out.
