You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Traditional New Mexican stew has pork in it, but, because I found it on sale, I’m using beef roast. Honestly, it’s excellent either way, because the meat will be under pressure for 30-minutes and turn into buttery, spicy, deliciousness. This is the best green chile stew recipe. Change my mind. JK don’t change my mind. I want to change yours.
Welcome to my childhood.
