Class Description

New to 2024! I was not a big fan of the instant pot when it first came out.  It took me years before I even got my hands on one.  Before the instant pot came into my life, I preferred to make food the slow way which takes hours to make.  Then on a Prime day during Covid, I decided to try one since it was so cheap.  I was hesitant and a little scared to use it (it was quite comical actually how scared I was), my first recipe was an easy Beef Chili with an Asian flair.  After that, I was hooked!  Then I tried other recipes that I’ve been doing the “traditional” way.  Pork Carnitas was next on my list to try, and the pork turned out so juicy and melted in your mouth that my whole family loved it, they couldn’t get enough of it!  Then I tried my Italian Wedding Soup, it was just so easy and fast that I could easily put it together for a quick dinner after work. That was when I realized how valuable the instant pot is in my kitchen!  After a family vacation to Corpus Christi, I wanted to recreate a dish that I had there on a chilly Spring day after our morning at the beach at this Mexican restaurant, Caldo de Res.  It is a hearty Mexican beef soup using beef bones and shanks with lots of vegetables.  When I first made this soup, it took hours!  But with the instant pot, after about 55 minutes, my family and I can enjoy this soup on a cold night! The fine prints about all of these recipes: I added my own Asian flair to all of them!
