Greek Style Lamb & Potato Stew in the Instant Pot

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.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Leg of lamb with the bone in is great for this recipe however boneless lamb works too. Use whatever you have. Beef is a excellent substitute.
Store leftovers in the refrigerator or freeze for up to 2 months.
