Between my air fryer and my Instant Pot; I haven't really used my stove or crockpot in so long. It is nice not having to be a slave to the stove. Here are some of my other favorite Instant Pot recipes:




NEW!! Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki




Pro tip: I remove all the vegetables to a large bowl then add the cornstarch. It helps so the vegetables don't break down to mush. It can be done either way.
