Instant Pot Mini Monday — Iced Tea (Whole 30)

IMG_4642

After almost 4 years of  pressure cooking, I have finally found a recipe that I wouldn’t want to make in my pressure cooker again.  Its my recipe for Italian Tomato Sauce.  I made it this morning to put over some meatballs for lunch.  The sauce wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t as good as when I do it on the stove.  I think the problem is in the pressure cooker’s steam filled environment doesn’t evaporate liquid and concentrate the flavors like cooking on the stove top.  It also doesn’t save any time doing it in the pressure cooker so I won’t be making Italian Tomato Sauce in the pressure cooker again.

On recipe I make almost daily in my pressure cooker is Dr. Urvashi Pitre’s pressure cooker ice tea. Making tea in the pressure cooker results in a super smooth tea with absolutely no bitterness.  I can and do drink this iced tea without any added sugar.  This means I have something other than water to drink on my next round of Whole 30.  I use Red Rose brand of black tea but you could use any brand you like.
