There were only three of us home for dinner tonight, so I was very decadent and did steak! Which I don't think we've had since we were first married I did it with a pepper sauce (from a packet) sweet potato fries, green beans and sugar snap peas and it was delicious

Curry again with lots of veggies

Or any Chinese dish where the meat is mainly a garnish for the vegetables and rice

Ooh, good idea. I'm a little thin on veggies, but bet I could do fried rice with scrambled eggs added too.

I dropped my crock pot a couple of weeks ago, shattering the ceramic pot and haven't gotten a replacement. SO.... I'm making crock pot lemon-herb chicken in my Instant Pot. - 35 minutes on high pressure. Here's hoping it works!

It should. I switched all of my crockpot recipes over to pruser cooker 8 years ago when I got my stove top one.

Thanks! Do you have any guidelines for converting recipes? I went by the times for a couple of other IP recipes to figure out how long to cook the chicken last night.

It turned out okay. I didn't measure any of the spices which is why (I think) it was a little under-seasoned, but it was also soupier than the crock pot version. I even used a little less water in the recipe than I do in the crock pot. But bone-in chicken done in under and hour? Pretty cool. (I set it for 35 minutes at pressure, but with going up and coming down I think it took about 55. That's about average, isn't it?)
