I made this as a quick an easy thing on a day when I knew I'd be tired. I didn't think much of it but it was really good. Dd's friend ended up eating dinner with us and everyone loved it.



2 ropes kielbasa smoked sausage sliced (I used just one kilbasa)
1 pound baby potatoes washed and cut in half
1 cup chicken broth or water
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Ĺ teaspoon sea salt
Ĺ teaspoon ground black pepper
Ĺ teaspoon smoked paprika
1 pound fresh green beans washed and trimmed
2 tablespoons butter optional

add sliced kielbasa to the Instant Pot
Add cut potatoes, chicken broth, and half of the seasoning
Place green beans on top, add remainder of the seasonings, and place lid on pot, and make sure valve is on sealing position
Pressure cook for 3 minutes on high pressure, and do a quick release or gradual quick release when pot beeps. When pin drops, remove lid, add butter if desired, and stir everything together before serving

I put in less salt and less smoked paprika because that's such a strong flavor, but it's definitely important.

I've cut back on cured meats over the years, but I do still cook it from time to time.

I'm not a fan of cabbage. I don't like coleslaw. but I loaded all the cabbage in there and it was good.

Made this tonight and everyone liked it. And it's a little bit different than anything else I make.

This is for dinner tonight. Pretty much the same as my chicken noodle soup, but rice instead of noodles.


EDITED TO ADD:  I cooked the veggies the same as when I make with noodles. And I didnít add water, all liquid I added was chicken broth. It was good, but flavour was not as strong as with noodles. Needs more seasoning added to veggies and/or chicken.

Posting for future.


I miss beef stew, but the only beef I can eat is ground beef. (Quality of beef doesnít matter. And I do realize how weird this sounds, but a support group Iím in it appears this is very common.)

The one time I tried red sauce and meatballs in the IP, it scorched on the bottom.  Iíve only done pasta for Mac and cheese, so not spaghetti shape, and itís only 4-5 minutes.  My kids donít eat saucy pasta, so thereís no pint in doing it in the pot.  We like it al dente, too, so better just on the stove.  Then, everyone has it how they like it, in terms of sauciness or mone(dd), or just meat and veggie(me).

Oh, good to know.  Maybe I will try again.  I have another ring I bought for non spicy stuff and rarely have used it.

You may need a new plastic ring. They can get a bit stretched and not seal.

I am no help.

That "burn" message is why my Instant Pot is now collecting dust!  I used it for a year with great successes.  Now I can not figure out why it keeps turning on even though what is inside is not burned.  And yes, same thing, never gets up to pressure.  I was so frustrated.  It did not matter what I was cooking.  I had to keep tossing badly cooked stuff or finishing my dinner on the stove top.  Kind of defeats the purpose of one pot cooking!

Does anyone cook spaghetti in their IP?

Every time I try I get the BURN message. What am I doing wrong?

I broke pasta in half and dropped it in kind of criss-crossed. Added about 4 cups water, one cans spaghetti sauce and one can diced tomatoes. It was all (just) below the max fill line.

It never actually came to pressure, and got the BURN message. Opened it, stirred, added more water. Repeat.

It tasted fine, but what mess to clean up.

I might try that without the cinnamon. Cinnamon is for breakfast. Unless you're having breakfast for dinner.

This made me laugh.

To me, cinnamon is for desert. When I eat anything with cinnamon for breakfast I feel like I should sneak it so my parents wonít see. Lol
