Chicken Parmesan Instant Pot Conversion Recipe
Today I am excited to share with you another family favorite recipe!
Smothered Beef Burritos now converted to the Instant Pot!
I’ve been really trying to convert some of our old crock pot recipes to be prepared in the Instant Pot. We have a lot of crock pot recipes, I use to grab my crock pot 2-3 times a week. and Now thanks to the Instant Pot I haven’t touched a crock pot in about a year and a half!
So, we have really been missing this Smothered Beef burritos recipe and I’m so excited that it is now ready in under 30 minutes instead of 4-6 hours!!!
Perhaps you have heard the news and now you are asking yourself,
Recently it became big news that some products from Instant Pot have been recalled. There has been a lot of confusion surrounding this recall and I’ve even heard of some people suggesting that everyone should throw their pot away!
Please DONT! 🙂 The recall is real, but most likely does not affect you at all. And here’s why:
Instant Pot (the company that makes the very popular pressure cookers) has quite a few different products under their brand name. The product that was recalled was NOT any of their pressure cooker models.
It was a mulit cooker called the Gem and it is only sold at walmart stores. It’s sort of like Instant pots version of a fancy crock pot, if you will. With the Gem you can do things like steam rice, roast, and slow cook but does not pressure cook! Anyways, I don’t know a lot about it… mostly because with the many pressure cooker options offered by Instant pot, I don’t see a need to have one.
But, if you happen to have the Gem Mulit cooker.. then yes it was recalled ( you still shouldn’t throw it away, you can take it back to walmart)
You can see the official recall notice from consumer reports here.
If you own an Instant Pot pressure cooker like many of us do…. please please keep cooking!!! Of course, if you really don’t want it, you can send it to me…but there isn’t any reason why you shouldn’t use it and LOVE it!
