    Instant Pot stuff

    Man, keep finding how awesome this thing is. Cheesecake like I would never imagine I could make, full blown NY style. Baby back Ribs that fall off the bone in less than 45 minutes including the dry rub and five minutes in the broiler after the IP. Last night we pressure steamed some lobster tails followed by shrimp for an early Valentines day treat. Set it up with steel cut oats and water the night before on delay start, wake up to an awesome breakfast.

    First time I ever made a cheesecake that wasnt Jello Instant :) The only things I might do different is to actually heat the graham cracker crust instead of refrigerate it, and place it on a convex surface when covered in the fridge so condensation from the lid rolls down and away. But even at that, it was some of the best cheesecake I've ever had.

    Okay, I caved. I bought an Instant Pot. Between work and chores at home, and a not so healthy MIL just moving in, I need something that will get me back in the kitchen, and out of the freezer section of the grocery store. Somebody point me to the recipes!

    I joined a FB group "Instant Pot Recipes Only" and so recipies cross my feed on a regular basis. Ones that catch our eye, we'll pull up an either use them or go find versions we like better. The above is great cheesecake. When we find one we like, it gets printed and put into the binder my daughter made up mockingly titled "With the Instant Pot (TM) You do have TIME!!!!" :) One of the go tos is simple hard boiled eggs so we always have some on hand.

    Here's the keeper baby back rib recipe.

    We did crank the pressure cook time up from 35 to 40 minutes, but otherwise didnt change a thing. Used the BOGO ribs from Haerris Teeter and man, what a deal :)

    I thought pressure cookers are used to make bombs?
    If the military wanted you to have a spouse, or family, they would have issued you one.

    Well, they can be. In the "normal" pressure cooker bomb usage the pressure cooker, having exceptionally thick walls and a robust sealing mechainsm, is used becuase those attibutes act as blast enhanchers, a magnified version of the effet you get by placing an M80 in a mailbox. With the added "benefit" that the walls of the pressure cooker shatter and make additional shrapnel.

    But this product, while it is a pressure cooker and could be made into a bomb, has 10 distinct safety mechainsms baked right in to prevent it from becoming an accidental bomb.

    No. They are used to make hard boiled eggs.
