How to Fix Instant Pot Quick Release Spraying Starch

When I did the quick release I got a starchy spew with the steam that was released. Should I have let it rest a bit? Short answer: Yes, you should let it rest a bit! Longer answer: I get the “quick release is spraying more than steam” question from time to time. It’s usually from my Macaroni and Cheese recipe – more on why that is in a minute – and most of the other times are from a bean recipe. It happens to me too! Most of the time with these recipes, a quick release just releases steam. But, sometimes I get more than steam – the pressure cooker starts spitting and sputtering, and I get a mess – a fine mist of the food spraying out with the steam. Q: What should I do when my Instant Pot quick release is spraying starch? A: Carefully close the pressure release valve, let the pressure come down for five minutes, and try again. Carefully! The steam (and the spitting liquid) are pressure-boiling hot. Protect your …

Pressure Cooker Brown and Wild Rice Pilaf

My cooking mantra is “simple doesn’t mean boring.” But…I love fancy rice pilaf. A simple rice pilaf, with white rice and chicken broth? It’s boring, and I’d rather just make risotto. But give me a blend of brown and wild rice? Now I’m interested. Add some fancy rice for variety: red rice, black Japonica, sweet rice? You have my full attention. Then, stir in some dried fruit, nuts, and a little green onion, and you have a side dish that’s worth second helpings. A pressure cooker is my secret weapon for brown rice. Brown rice takes forever on the stovetop; in my pressure cooker, It is done in about 40 minutes, end to end. Looking for a holiday-worthy side dish that is easy enough to use on a weeknight? This is the pilaf to make. Video: Pressure Cooker Brown and Wild Rice Pilaf (1:48) Video: Pressure Cooker Brown and Wild Rice Pilaf with Cranberries and Almonds [YouTube.com] What do you think?

Rotisserie Sirloin Roast

Thank you to my friends at Certified Angus Beef® Brand for sponsoring DadCooksDinner. Please check hashtags #BestAngusBeef and #Steakholder for more beef recipes, and visit them at the Certified Angus Beef Kitchen Community on Facebook. Thank you! Guys, I just realized – I don’t have a rotisserie Sirloin Roast post! I love a big roast for the holidays, and in my humble1 opinion, a sirloin roast is the best value. It is more tender than an inexpensive eye of round roast, can be cut into thick slabs, and is not as expensive as a rib roast. Also, it is boneless – easy to carve into beautiful, thick slices of juicy beef. My favorite cut of sirloin is the center cut top sirloin roast. It weighs about 6 pounds and comes from a large muscle in the middle of the top sirloin. It is an evenly shaped roast, about a foot long and 6 inches wide, easy to truss and cook on the rotisserie. I ask for it at my grocery store meat counter; they usually …
