Expert Tips

  • After cooking thick soups and stews, always be sure to inspect the anti-block shield and exhaust valve in the lid of the Instant Pot™ to be sure they aren’t blocked with food.
  • Harissa is a Tunisian hot chili pepper paste made primarily from roasted and fresh peppers, garlic, coriander and oil. You can find it in the ethnic aisle at the grocery store.
