Greek Green Beans – Instant Pot (Fasolakia)

Greek green beans or fasolakia is a hearty, vibrant mix of green beans, potatoes, tomatoes and onion. Oh and feta, let’s not forget the feta. Salty, crumbly feta tops it off. How can this not be delicious? Well, at least that’s what I thought when I first heard of it. (Took me forever to say fasolakia – fas-uh-la-kee-uh) The problem was that the recipes I saw were on the stovetop and that’s not my gig – not right now in this heat anyway. So, I took a cue from my southern green beans recipe, because it’s green beans and potatoes…

Ribs and Gravy – Instant Pot

Ribs and gravy are the easiest, most delicious country-style-tastes-like-home-I-want-to-die-in-this-gravy thing you’ll make in your Instant Pot. And simple! I’m talking explain it to me like a 3 year old simple. Remember not too long ago I shared my boneless BBQ ribs? Well, it’s almost that very same recipe. It was actually born at the very same time on the same day. We did the ribs for that recipe and removed them to a pan to dress it and put it under the broiler. But then we looked in the pot and saw this liquid goodness left in the pot. What…

Boneless BBQ Beef Ribs – Instant Pot

These Instant Pot bbq boneless ribs will quite possibly change your life. Seriously. They are, as my friend said, “The Truth. They should be put in the Bible.” His words, not mine. The wife and I saw these in Costco and we were talking about what we could do with them. After running through plenty of options, like stabbing it with my large skewer sword or marinating them in a lime/cilantro situation, we settled on using the pressure good and hoped it would turn out good. And it was – crazy good. Crazy AF. “This is the The Truth. They…

Southern Style Green Beans & PIP Rice – Instant Pot

A long, long time ago my wife and I used to sit around and French cut a bunch of fresh green beans. Then she would cook them down Southern style (what other way is there, really?) with potatoes and she would make a huge pot of rice. It’s always been a favorite of ours, but it’s work dude. Frenching green beans ain’t quick! Cooking those suckers down on the stove ain’t quick! So one day I was bugging her to make some green beans and potatoes and she kept putting me off – too much work blah blah blah. I’m…

Unexpected, I know. But those beans are ridiculous! Only the first time I went there did I get the meat situation. It’s too much for me and the wife. Too much food.

Spicy Red Lentil Soup

Spicy red lentil soup is both hearty and healthy! I may have mentioned before, we have “days” here on our food schedule. Souper Sunday, Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday, booze OK, (and quite possibly taco Thursday). Friday and Saturday are wild cards, which usually means I’m shooting a video so I’m cooking things that I shouldn’t be. This spicy red lentil soup happened on Souper Sunday. Management and I just basically tossed some things in the Instant Pot and boom! I call it spicy, but if you don’t put the jalape√Īo, it’s not. We like a little…
