Just bought an instant pot electric pressure cooker and wondered if anyone has used one and what their thoughts are on it.

We use ours a lot. I really like it for chicken quarters. Debone the meat for the wife and I. Grind up the skin, bones and connective tissue for a doggie treat. Throw some veggies and spices in after and make soup stock. I gets my money worth out of some cheap chicken. Also great for reconstituting small batches of dry beans for a single meal.

I love carnitas, how did it turn out? Sounds delicious and its lunchtime. Wish I could find some around here.
I made the refried beans in the pressure cooker and they were easy and great. The carnitas i made in the oven i use a recipe from serious eats website that is out of this world good. http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2010/07/no-waste-tacos-de-carnitas-with-salsa-verde-recipe.html
take some of the salsa verde and mix with the shredded pork then place under broiler until a bit crunchy in spots and the salsa verde glazes on the pork. best part it can be made ahead of time and broil as much as you want. i am on day 3 of heaven with them.

Excellent. I looked at a bunch of recipes last year and kind of came up with my own and they were delicious. I'll check your link out for sure. I made tacos with mine. Alas, the pictures are all on the phone that I donated to whomever stole it, down in Jamaica. Made mango salsa and a pickled cabbage for toppings and damned if they weren't delicious. Thanks for the link. Good eating!
