Boiled peanuts are a southern snacking tradition. Great for tailgates, cookouts and watching the game. Fire departments and church groups used to do large "boils" for fund raisers. It is not unusual to see Boiled P-Nuts signs along the highways in the south. You can make a large batch with the Instant Pot and freeze some for the next big game.
If you like beef brisket sandwiches here is a way to get that flavor in a much shorter timeframe and somewhat less hassle. The chuck roast or California roast cut is very flavorful and can be smoked in just a few hours. This can be cooked in a slow cooker or instant pot for sandwiches as well; but, I prefer smoked.
Excited to use my recently built Ugly Drum Smoker so decided to do cedar plank salmon. The First Mate keeps experimenting with rice in the Instant Pot so here we go.
Soft Boiled eggs are phenomenal when cooked in an Instant Pot. The eggs will be perfect and ready for whatever your desire dictates.
I set out to make a whole chicken as simply as possible. No browning. Nothing but bird, water, and seasonings. You can even just use salt and pepper. This is a great way to make a healthy dose of protein to use in other recipes like chicken and rice, burritos, salads, etc. Total time from fridge to plate is 45 minutes.
