Oh hi.

Have I told you that I have joined the Instant Pot cult?  Why yes I have.  I started an entire Instant Pot wing of this website!

Yeah.  I got myself an Instant pot for my birthday last year, and it has taken me a few months to get the hang of the thing.  But Here I am now, sharing my latest and greatest creation with it.

So far, my favorite things to make in it are:

Mashed Potatoes

Sticky Rice

My Carrot and Ginger Soup

Pulled Pork 

And now this Moo Shu Pork.   Here is a little video of how I made it.

Can I tell you something?  I love those rice moo shu shells that come with your moo shu pork at restaurants, but I can’t find any place in Eastern Iowa who sells them!  I tried to get the Chinese restaurant in Cedar Falls to sell me some, but they wouldn’t.   My mom said she has seen them at the Asian grocery store in Naperville, so I will have to get some the next time I’m up there.
