Instant Pot Italian Stew

Instant Pot Italian Stew at Miz Helen's Country Cottage

It finally happened, I got a Instant Pot for Christmas, and I have been having fun! I have used a pressure cooker for years and really wasn't afraid of the pressure and love the fact that I can set the pressure and the cooking time then walk away, whereas with the pressure cooker, it requires a constant watch. It is cold weather here so I thought I would start out with a very simple Italian Stew, it was delicious and sure didn't take very long to prepare, plus it gave me a lot of freedom to take care some something else in the kitchen while it cooked. Thanks so much family, I sure am enjoying this new kitchen toy!
