2. CHEESESTEAK STUFFED PEPPERS:
– 4 Red peppers
– 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
-1 cup yellow onion, sliced
-16 slices provolone cheese
-1 lb shaved beef, stir fry meat, or thinly sliced steak
– 1/2 tsp sea salt
-1/4 tsp ground black pepper
-2 tsp garlic or 2 large garlic cloves
-1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley, optional
Prep the ingredients by slicing the onions and mushrooms.
Cut the tops off of the peppers and remove the seeds and white membrane. Push Saute on the Instant Pot.
Add olive oil, onion, mushrooms, salt, and pepper to the pan and cook for about 8 minutes.
Remove the vegetables to the side. Add more olive oil to the pan, if needed, along with a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and saute the shaved beef for 6 minutes until browned on the outside. It’s ok if the inside isn’t cooked through since the meat will finish cooking during baking.
Stir in the minced garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the onion/mushroom mixture back to the pan. Put the pepper halves in the bottom of your Instant Pot. Put a slice of provolone cheese in the bottom of each pepper.
Fill the pepper with the cooked vegetable/meat mixture and sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper. Place a slice of cheese on the top of each pepper. Add 1 cup of water and place the peppers onto the trivet, steamer basket, or even a springform pan. Close the lid, lock it in place, and turn the knob to seal. Hit the manual or pressure cook button and set it for 5 minutes. Allow a 5 minutes natural release when cook time is up. Using the handles of the trivet or steamer basket, carefully remove the peppers from the pot.
Garnish with parsley (optional) Serve immediately and enjoy these Keto Cheese Steak Peppers.
3. INSTANT POT BUTTER CHICKEN
-2 cups Onion, diced
-5 cloves Garlic, minced
-4 tablespoons Butter
-2 pounds of chicken
– 15 ounces Tomato sauce, no added sugar
-3 tablespoons Tomato paste
-2 tablespoons Red curry paste
– 2 teaspoons Garam masala
-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
-1 teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon Smoked paprika
– 1/2 cup Heavy cream Cilantro, garnish
Set your Instant Pot to SAUTE and add butter, onion, and garlic. Saute for approximately 5 minutes until the onions are tender. Press OFF to cancel the saute.
Add the chicken, tomato sauce, tomato paste, red curry paste, garam masala, ground ginger, salt, and smoked paprika to the Instant Pot. Lock the lid in place and turn the pressure valve to seal it.
Set to HIGH PRESSURE for 7 minutes. When the timer goes off do a natural release for 5 minutes and then turn the valve on top to VENTING to let the remaining steam out of the pressure cooker.
Remove the lid and using a slotted spoon remove the chicken from the sauce and set it aside.
Add the heavy cream to the pot and, using an immersion blender puree the sauce until smooth. Set the Instant Pot to SAUTE and stir the sauce while simmering for 7-10 minutes, or until it thickens. Turn OFF saute. Add the chicken back to the sauce, stir together, and serve with a garnish of cilantro.
