    Anyone use one of the pressure cooker instant pots?

    My DIL has one and did a small sirloin roast with taters, onions, carrots. She browned the meat, added the veggies, and 30 mins later it was done. I was impressed. The meat had a nice sear, and was medium rare on the inside, and quite tender for a tough cut of meat. I did a little research and ordered one today. I'd like to try some ribs in it and then finish them on the grill or in the smoker. I'll get rid of the crock pot that we have.

    Just bought the 8 qt one. Did some lamb shanks using the pressure mode. Turned out fantastic in very little time.

    I asked a couple people today about them. No one has tried them. I see their is a rack to do like a beer can chicken. Thumped a squirrel today. He's soaking in salt water. Pressure cooker may be a good way to make some Q stew.

    I've heard to only do skinless chicken. Skin will just be rubber at the end of the process even if you try to brown it first.
    I did some homemade Mac N Cheese now too (Gluten free for guests) and that turned out fine.
    When it came to the lamb I could not believe how much flavor the sauce had and how juicy the lamb was even though it appeared overcooked to my eyes. I guess under pressure it retains moisture better than other methods.
