Every time I read an instant pot recipe I'm a little bit more tempted to buy one, mainly because it shortens the cooking time so much. I would normally cook a dish like this in my slow cooker on low for four or five hours. Does the meat become really tender using the instant pot like it does when slow cooked? I would be concerned that such a short cooking time would render the meat a bit tough. Thank you!
Thanks for your interest. I would strongly recommend anyone to buy an instant pot. The meat will literally fall to pieces it is so tender. I also have a slow cooker, but I must admit since getting the instant pot, I haven't used it.
