Last year, I came up with an easy goulash recipe that took about 40 minutes to make, with only 10 to 15 minutes of actual cooking time. This made a complete, hearty, one-pot meal that was also kid-friendly, and I was pretty happy with it.
But lately, I’ve been making a whole bunch of meals with my Instant Pot, and it got me to thinking. Could the Instant Pot make that easy goulash even easier and faster?
