Start out in saute mode.
I tried it and BOOM! Life changing.
Or at least dinner changing.
I plug in my Instant Pot, set it to saute and then add whatever liquid I’m using. Or if I actually need to saute something, such as onions, or want to brown meat I’ll add a bit of olive oil and toss in that food. I prep whatever else I need – veggie slicing, can opening, etc. – while that’s going on.
The pot is nice and hot by the time I have everything in there, close the lid and head into the pressure cooking phase. This means it comes to pressure SUPER FAST.
- pasta (again)
- rice pudding
- bone broth
- dried (unsoaked) black beans.
All yummy. All fast. All easy peasy.
