I like to pick up soup bones from the butcher and use those to make stock in the Instant Pot. When I have a little extra time I'll make up a batch and freeze. Comes in handy.

I've seen some people will freeze stock in ice cube trays and use those in place of bullion. I haven't tried that trick yet though.

Love hard boiled eggs in the thing

Great website for eggs in an instant pot

We will never ever go back to doing eggs any way different. HUGE +1 on that.

Huh, never tried hard boiled eggs in it. Never found it that big a deal to just boil a pot of water. Does the Instant Pot cooking method make the eggs any easier to peel? If so I might have to try it out.

Unbelievably so. I read about it on some homesteading sites. Even freshly laid eggs peel clean, it's pretty awesome. I'm still working on the cooling quickly part, my last batch came out a little "green" in the yolk from over cooking. Gotta cool them quick. 5 pressure, 5 wait, release and cool is what I've been doing. Maybe I'll try 4 wait or 3 wait before release.

Going to make mac and cheese in the instapot tonight, and a few beer can chickens on the grill, mmmm.

Holy chickens! I just made some boiled eggs in the intant pot. A cup of water, the steam rack, 5 eggs, 13 minutes on low pressure, quick release, and a couple minutes in cold tap water.

I've never been able to peel eggs so easily, and they were fully cooked and moist. This is only way that I will be hard boiling eggs.

Just did hard boiled eggs in the Instant pot last night (high pressure for 5 minutes, let pressure naturally cool for 3 minutes, then vent remaining pressure, put eggs in ice bath). Not only did the eggs come out perfectly how I like them to be, but the shell slipped right off with almost no effort.

Yup, never making hardboiled eggs any other way.

We made bone broth last night after eating a chicken. We're still loving it!

FYI! I know these gadgets have been used by some of you all. Just wanted to give you a heads up.
