Instant Pot Recipes

Potato corn chowder – just throw it all in and run on high pressure for 5 minutes (10 was too much)
Thai Peanut Chicken – replaced chicken with frozen, pre-cooked shrimp; high pressure for 1 minute; fine to add onions and other veggies; after pressure cook, add cornstarch, water, and lime juice and finish on the stove (could the pressure cooker finish it instead on a non-pressure setting?); serve with tons of rice
