Instant Pot Cola Pot Roast - comfort food at your fingertips!

Cola Pot Roast – Instant Pot

Many, many, many years ago this cola pot roast was made in a dutch oven. I like…No, I love that method. Slow roasting just brings out something special in meat. I do still do it that way in the winter. Sometimes I do it outside over a fire. But what about the summers? Some days I want cola pot roast! So it occurred to me one day to make my favorite roast in my pressure cooker and it turned out brilliant. And it pressures for a fraction of the time of oven cooking. Gotta love that. I think I ran…

Nashville Hot Boiled Peanuts in your Instant Pot! Oh baby!

Nashville Hot Boiled Peanuts

I’ve taken the classic southern boiled peanuts and turned it up a notch. That’s right. Nashville Hot boiled peanuts! And let me tell ya, if you love boiled peanuts (I know, not everyone does, it’s a southern thing!), but if you do, Nashville Hot just takes it to another level! And…and…I forgot to tell you the best part: It’s made in the Instant Pot or whatever brand of electric pressure cooker you have! If you’ve never had boiled peanuts, you’re in for a real treat. It’s quite a polarizing food, though, even here in the south. You either love’ em…

Crazy Delicious Pork Tacos (or Nachos or Burritos)

Crazy delicious pork tacos in the slow cooker or oven – great for tacos, nachos, burritos. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again.  My heart belongs to tacos.  Always has always will.  Sorry wife.  Sorry kids.

When I want pork in my tacos, and I’m being especially lazy, this is the recipe I make.  This is one of those recipes that you pull out of a magazine and say you’re gonna try and you actually…

So, I went to the Hearth and Patio Expo in New Orleans a couple of months ago and stumbled on some neat stuff. You know, like you do at expos. But one thing I found was John Henry’s line of rubs. Now, you have no idea the amount of rubs I have! Management is always on me about the “rub situation”. I’ll admit, it is…

This fried pork tenderloin sandwich will take the boring out of pork tenderloin. Tender, juicy and so delicious! We all know what time it is guys, it’s quarantine time. And to be honest, it hasn’t been so bad. I know people are having some tough times right now, but for me personally, I’ve had zero stress about this. Me and the wife have actually been enjoying it. It’s been, oh…I don’t know, a month since we’ve seen civilization. Not exactly true, we did go to Costco twice in that month but other than that, we’re staying home. So yeah, it…

Homemade Pastrami is easier than you think and once you make your own, you will never buy pastrami again!

Homemade Pastrami

So yes, I’m gonna go there – homemade pastrami. I’m not gonna lie, it’s a huge time commitment, but 98% of it is passive time, so no skin off your knuckles. But so freakin’ worth it. I promise you, once you do this, you will never buy pastrami again, NEVER! There are some things/tools you’re gonna need and I want to put it right out there from the start. I don’t want to spring it on you at the end and say well damn, I just wasted my time on this joker because I don’t have or want to have…

Smoky Red Chimichurri Sauce

This smoky red chimichurri sauce has become my new favorite sauce! It’s crazy easy and it goes on everything! I mean every.thing. I’ve smoked baby potatoes with it, used it on shoulder tender and ribeye, smeared it on cod and baked it. It just wants to be friends with everything. And while I do love, love green chimichurri, this one seems…simpler somehow. Not that the green one is difficult at all, but you do need a lemon for it and I don’t always have that around. I’m not gonna use bottled lemon for a fresh chimi. So then I have…

Restaurant style Mexican Rice is my favorite side dish with Mexican food and it's so easy in the Instant Pot!

Restaurant Style Mexican Rice – Instant Pot

No matter where you are, you hit up a Mexican restaurant and you get that red rice as a side. Some are better than others, but still it’s always there. And I don’t know about you, but sometimes I want that restaurant style Mexican rice at home, you know, when I’m making wet burritos, or lengua tacos, or carnitas. I typically make a version of Mexican rice on the stove, but have been trying to come up with the most perfect, restaurant-like version in the Instant Pot. Because let me tell you, on the stove it takes a bit of…

Flavor bomb barbacoa – right in your Instant Pot. Taco Tuesday will never be the same! Ready to get bombed? No, not like that – put away that Jager. I’m talking about a bomb in your mouth. A barbacoa bomb. Honestly, now that I’m looking at that in the written word, a barbacoa bomb does not actually sound that appealing. Anyway… But this flavor bomb barbacoa is! Trust me. Now, I’m sure if you’re here looking at this recipe, you’re interested in barbacoa in your pressure cooker and you’re not a keyboard cook. However, if you are a keyboard cook,…

Looking to switch up your oatmeal game? Cheesy Oatmeal in the Instant Pot will make you a believer in breakfast again! 14 minutes to start your day right!

Cheesy Savory Oatmeal – Instant Pot

For some of you, this cheesy savory oatmeal may be hard to wrap your head around. Or maybe it just sounds weird. I’ve been there and I’ve heard it all before… Oatmeal is supposed to be sweet. It’s supposed to be topped with berries and fresh whipped cream, or smothered in peanut butter with walnuts and maple syrup on top, or come in little bitty packets loaded with sugar and who knows what. I know, I’ve been there. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Before savory oatmeal came into my life I hated oatmeal. But now I love it. It makes…
