    This was a very good. The only thing I had issues with is that it was too runny after adding sour cream. I put it on saute and let it cook for a few minutes as suggested but I was in a time crunch, so I just added a tablespoon of corn starch and it thickened up just fine. Overall a good recipe and one I'll probably make again.

  2. Gary Evans says:

    I bought my almost new Insta-Pot at a thrift shop for $6 on a lark. I've been using your recipes on Youtube as a beginner and love them - simple, well explained, entertaining and easy to use. It's a great new adventure for an 80-year-old man who likes to try new things. And I never forget to turn my cooker to sealing (ha). Thank you so much.

  3. Momma Cyd says:

    Gary, you are amazing! You made our whole week!! What a deal on your thrift shop Instant pot! And we are thrilled that our videos have been helping. And we love that you remembered "Sealing - Not venting!" You are the BEST! Have a terrific week.

  4. Louise says:

    This recipe is the best. I used a poor cut of beef, and gluten free fusilli, served with toasted mug bread and fresh garden carrots. What a feast! Thank you!

  5. Sal says:

    Hi! Thank you for this delicious recipe, especially from a new mom learning how to use an instant pot is fantastic. However, I've made this twice, and both times when releasing the pressure (before adding the noodles), liquid sprayed up and out everywhere in the kitchen from the pressure vent! Would you happen to know why this happens? It's made for terrible clean up but the flavor is so good that we came back to the recipe to try it again (but it sadly happened again). Thank you!

  6. Terri says:

    I just made this, did not tweak it at all! Sooo good!

    Some foods cause a bigger and foamy mess. You can hold a paper towel or dish towel a few inches above the IP to catch some of the moisture and mess from spewing all over the kitchen.

  8. Jen says:

    Made this for Christmas dinner and it was so delicious! Only thing I did different was add some fresh thyme because I had to use it up! Will definitely make again!
