Okay, I hear these are the craze so I got one. A smaller 3qt one for the coach. A larger one for the house (S&B). I have no clue how to cook but this makes killer hardboiled eggs :)

Who are the instant pot peeps here and what do you cook in yours? While RVing of course. Or are you still using a slow cooker (crockpot)?

I have the small one, too...I grew up with my mom and grandma using pressure cookers for lots of cooking, so it wasn’t hard to learn to use, my personal favorite is beef tips, which I serve over rice or noodles depending on my mood. I do not care for rice cooked in the instant pot, but I suppose it’s just a personal preference. I get better results cooking it on the stovetop, or a small rice cooker.

We have one in the S&B and one in the coach and cook all kinds of things in it. Rice, potatoes, roasts, goulash, chili. It makes for a fairly quick dinner and relatively easy cleanup. Oh and definitely hard boiled eggs.

Same as @Neal, we have a small one in the coach and a large one at the S&B. They do make great hard boiled eggs, but I don't think they work well for Pop Tarts. :rolleyes: Sorry; couldn't resist.

LadyDi has made some killer pulled pork in ours and it really speeds up the cooking time. We haven't tried it yet, but a friend says it makes great ribs that you can finish on the grill or in the smoker. Again, cook time is greatly reduced.

LadyDi says there's an Instant Pot group on Facebook that has lots of good info.

Soft chicken tacos. Who doesn’t like tacos? Also great turkey chili. Great for “Arizonaska”. 😀

Yep, lot's of stuff on YouTube as well. Of course none of which I've done beyond HB eggs so far. Maybe one day I'll cook up something with more than 2 ingredients!

Forgot about ribs and pulled pork. We also use the pulled pork for tacos.

We have the Ninja Foodi, stores under one of our dinette chairs. At this vary moment attempting to cook Christmas Prime rib in it. No idea how it will come out.
As far as hard boiled eggs, we use an Egg cooker

We got an Instant Pot for Christmas, complements of my MIL. Tonight, Trish put in some ribs for 20 minutes. Then took them out and finished them off with about 5 minutes (per side) in the oven/broiler.

I'm not going to say they are as good as the ones I cook (6+ hours) on the grill, but honestly, they were not bad! And given we had less than an hour in the whole deal, I'm going to give them a 4.5 out of 5 stars! Clean up was a breeze.

Going to be a nice addition to the motor home.

Follow up, Prime Rib came out excellent, as good as anyone I cooked in conventional oven (a little smaller). Crust on Broil 5 minutes per pound, leave lid on change to 250 roast ~10 minutes/lbs took it out at 130 degrees result perfect medium-rare roast. Used
The Meatstick which actually worked with the foodi closed.

After a little research, it appears that the Meat Stick probe needs an additional "range extender/wifi bridge" in order to be used inside a metal enclosure like an oven, covered grill, Instant Pot, etc. No big deal, but it is important to know that before ordering.

As the Instant Pot adventure continues, tonight Trish made Orange Sesame Chicken. Dice up the chicken, add in some other yummy ingredients, and toss it in for “4” minutes. Yes, only 4 minutes!

And it was awesome!
