-Make sure your Instant Pot is plugged in and has power before turning it on.
-If you’re using an older model Instant Pot (before 2013), you’ll need to manually increase the cooking time by 10 minutes because the Instant Pot begins heating from the bottom up.
-If you’re using a newer model Instant Pot (after 2013), the cooker will preheat quickly and will not need to be increased in time.
-Start by adding your ingredients to the pot. Depending on the size of your ingredients, this may take up to 3 minutes for smaller items or 7 minutes for larger items.
-Once your ingredients are in the pot, set the timer and wait for the alarm to sound. This will tell you that the Instant Pot is ready to cook.
-Pressurize and seal the lid, then turn on the heat to high pressure andcook for 6 minutes. Quick release the pressure manually or allow the pressure release naturally according to your Instant Pot’s instructions.
-Remove any cooked food from the pot using a slotted spoon or strainer. If there are still bits of uncooked food clinging to the sides of the pot, use a spoon or chopstick to dislodge them.
