I've never done it in a broth, only in gravy. The gravy turns out great.

I only want to do it to bone broth to add more nutrients. I don't know how it will turn out, but I get scrap bones for 99c a pound and typically freeze scrap veggies. So if I mess up a 5 dollar pot, worse things will have happened.

I would make your stock and keep that separate and fortify your stock into a broth adding aromatics and the organs. That would be my plan. I would probably roast the heart or cure it then add it in last like a soup but now we are getting crazy esoteric.

cheap beef, onion, garlic, a cup of beef broth, 2 tablespoons of flour, and salt and pepper. Set it for 45 min, leave it alone for about 2.5 hours. Just before you are ready to eat, make some instant mashed potatoes. the meat will all be shredded, in it's own gravy, and you just pout it over the potatoes. it's easy, and good.

I also like throwing whatever chicken is laying around and some Bar-b-q sauce. The chicken will be fall off the bone, and the sauce will make it taste nice. And again, it's easy. Plenty of time for a cold beer.

Chicken thighs, some brown sugar, soy sauce (don't be skimpy) white vinegar, lots of garlic. That's it.
Sorry I don't measure things anymore so you'll have to do it by smell/look/taste.

Can be cooked in instapot or crockpot. The sauce is to die for. The vinegar smell is a little overpowering when you are making it, but when you eat it it's not.

Is it kind of like Korean BBQ or more like teriyaki?

Either way, sounds great.

I'd probably add a touch of fish sauce, hair of ginger, and some Thai chili peppers. 😉

Maybe finish with some green onion. Mmmmmm

I don't care for the instapots, but it does sound like it may be great for making bone broth. It takes over ten hours of boiling bones to make bone broth. In the winter it is not bad, you have to heat your house anyway so it is not much more expensive. But doing that in the summer heats the house up too much. I usually make regular soups in the summer that only need like three hours of boiling to make the stock.

Not to mention doing it in a pot compensates for lost humidity in the winter, so that's an added benefit of old school.

I like it because I can do it fast and in smaller batches (I only cook for myself).

But both sides have benefits!

I often cook stuff up in the Instant Pot and then freeze the leftovers in individual portions (in baggies or bowls). Makes it super easy to reheat whatever we want without having to remake a whole meal.

I have mine full of ham and beans right now. Smells amazing. I cook SO much in it! I have two of them lol. I basically think of meals then look up how to cook it in an instant pot. Haven't been disappointed yet.

Couldnt agree more, however I do still do all searing in a cast iron pan.

Same. I'll use the saute function for browning ground beef for chili, etc... But it doesn't quite get hot enough for a proper sear.

Yeah, I got one as a wedding gift. It's pretty awesome. I've only used it once so far for conventional white trash casserole with fresh green beans..
It's amazing how fast it cooks stuff.
You start the beans in chicken stock and it took about 2 mins to cook, then another couple mins to finish.
Yum
It'd be great for potato based recipes, I bet

For me, the instant pot's great strength is being able to do it all in one container. MY spaghetti sauce recipe has numerous steps, separately browning meat, cooking up raw tomatoes, cooking down peppers before finally going into slow cook mode. It's a mess with convetional setup, a couple of skillets, at least one extra bowl maybe two- cleanup sux. But with the instant pot I only need the extra bowl to hold the meat while the veggies saute. With the one pot, cleanup after a multi-stage cook is a breeze.

Slow cook a roast - without instant pot there's the inevitable "browning vessel" & then the slow cooker.
Instant pot I can saute/brown and then slow cook or pressure cook (with variations for soups stews rice etc.)
You'll find slow cooking has great advantage over pressure cooking and vice versa, depending upon the dish.

One tip: always cook bean-type soups on pressure cooker to get the beans softened up quickly - if you've got a soup that requires time to set your flavor profile, go to slow cook for a couple of hours after the pressure's off. Stuff with tomatoes comes to mind for something that has to cook down to get the taste right.

An other is follow the rice instructions to the tee - I pressure cook (rice setting) for 5 minutes, then use the natural let off method instead of just popping it open at the end of five minutes, let it sit for 10-15. Rice comes out perfect every time, with or without the recommend drop of oil or two.

I had a good friend in high school whose parents were from Italy. They barely spoke English.... Her mom taught me to make spaghetti sauce "the old way" which takes about an hour and a half on the stove. It so amazing (and fattening....). I use that sauce for both spaghetti and lasagna. I have served that sauce at numerous company functions and events. People have raved about it (even behind my back.....) and I've won a couple of awards with it.

Since you mentioned it, I'm curious if I can get the same results in the instant pot.....
