Instant Pot Beef Nilaga

Beef Nilaga

I think it’s been raining on and off everyday for a week now. At para mas feel ang rainy day, I cooked Beef Nilaga and I cooked it using the Instant Pot.

I’ve had my Instant Pot for quite sometime now but it’s just recently that I began using it — I use it when I cook dishes where in I had to use pressure cooking to tenderize the meat — just like with Beef Nilaga. It’s faster and easier to cook. Plus, the Instant Pot is bigger than all of my pots here at home so it’s ideal for  big batch cooking too. Mas gusto ko na sya kesa sa stove top pressure cooker!

Beef Nilaga

The usual vegetables I put when I cook Beef Nilaga is corn, squash, cabbage, pechay, saging na saba. Ganon din ba kayo? OR may iba kayong vegetables na nilalagay, like potatoes etc. Next time I want to try putting purple camote for more color.

Hope you’re having a great week, despite the rain. Stay warm, dry and safe, mommies!
