I made up another recipe for the Instant Pot. I keep experimenting more and more and find myself using the Instant Pot more and more. Each success builds my confidence. To be honest, it’s getting to the point that I use the Instant Pot way more than I use my stove top. That make clean up easy too as there are fewer pots and pans.
I’ve told you before that I’m a “fly by the seat of my pants cook”. It’s so true. On this day my littlest baby was here at childcare. He’s 10 months old and is starting to eat table food. I still have to use the immersion blender to chop it up but he’s doing good with things that are pureed so I thought noodles would be a good option. I had hamburger and sausage on hand….and so it went. I ended up coming up with a Beef Stroganoff that tastes a lot like hamburger helper. The kids loved it.
The funny thing is that I tossed the in the ingredients making it up as I went…then it was really good and I was running to find paper to quick write down the recipe so I could share it…The back of an envelop was the first thing that I found…so here’s the recipe on the back of an envelope….
Seriously, I’ll give a real recipe.
In the Instant pot using the saute feature
1 pound hamburger and a 1/2 pound sausage – this could easily be cut back to one pound total. Hubby likes his food meaty.
1 chopped onion- Saute.
12 oz bag noodles I used egg noodles
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
using the same Cream of Mushroom soup can measure out and add
3 cans water
3/4 cup sour cream
2 Tablespoons beef soup base
garlic powder and pepper to taste
Turn off the saute feature. Put the lid on. Close the valve. Manual for 5 minutes.
Release pressure. Stir. Serve. Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese. Eat.
I so love the Instant Pot for cooking with the childcare kids. I don’t have to “watch a pan on the stove”. I don’t burn anything. I can natural release and the food stays warm until it’s time to serve. It’s so good for life with kids!! I’ve REALLY contemplated getting a second one. Next year Black Friday I think I’m going to have to cave to the pressure of having two!!
Anyway..the kids liked this…I did and Karl did too!!
