    Let's get down to brass tacks. Most of us are out here by ourselves, and eating out all the time is both expensive and unhealthy. I just bought a 3qt Instant Pot and I've never cooked much more than an omelette. What are some good one pot meals that can either be slow cooked throughout the day, or prepared easily to cook while you're doing your paperwork?

    Actually, I just realized that an omelette might be the perfect thing to make in this thing.

    Search pressure cooker recipes. Instant Pot has a website including recipes for using the item. According to website you can cook a roast in 7 minutes.

    It's the name of a very popular versatile pressure cooker/slow cooker.

    Decided to wake up early and make an omelette. Came out alright, but it burned a bit on medium saute, so I'd probably recommend low saute for two eggs. IMG_20181015_055427.jpg

    Looks perfect.
    But I'd rather it be a western omlette.
