Move aside slow cookers- there’s a new kitchen appliance taking countertops across the country by storm. The Instant Pot is a programmable multicooker that functions as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, and more. This easy-to-use machine slashes cook times on big-batch recipes such as tough cuts of meat, dried beans, and frozen proteins. The cooking method uses heat and pressure to expedite cooking, resulting in tender beef, pull-apart pork roast or creamy beans in a fraction of the time. Read on for recipes using pasture-raised meats and Texas-sourced produce – Holiday version!. (Photo Credit: Business Insider)
