    I didnt rinse my IP between stages, because i wanted to keep all that flavour in my dinner.

    I replaced the beef broth with 1 large can of diced tomatoes, eliminating rhe need to drown the serving with ketchup when eating it.

    I also added a little cream cheese to my mashed potatoes, as usual in my household.

    Excellent. All members of my family loved it. Meat needs a LITTLE something extra..maybe just more worshistire.

    Was tasty. Next time we will double the Worcestershire sauce to 4 TBSP. Couldn’t take it at all. You could add a little more black pepper as well.

    This one took a bit more time then most IP recipes but was worth the wait. I added some extra pepper and worchestire sauce as some on here recommended and it turned out great. Will make again soon.

    Cannot get over how easy this is in the Instant Pot. I have since bought the air fryer lid, so plan to broil IN my instant pot this time!

    Why do you need to PC completed dish?? The meat is cooked, the potatoes are mashed! Can’t you just use the AC lid to brown potatoes and melt cheese?? That’s what I did.
