Instant Pot Gyros: Under 30 minutes for the best Gyros made at home.

Okay, so the other night I was just hanging out at the Instant Pot Community Facebook page (can you say cooking nerd? and proud of it!) when my friend Tonya messaged me. We got to talking about what we wanted to make in the IP (we’re both exited about our IP’s) and she suggested Gyros.

Beef & Barley Soup - NOT the box recipe - this is made from beef bones in under and hour in the Instant Pot.

Fall comes, the leaves turn and at that first temperature drop, I seem to crave comfort food. I actually have a list. Well, not a formal one, but one in my head, and Beef & Barley Soup ranks high on that list.

Mongolian Barbecue Noodle Bowls

They’re wild about it and so am I…but the cost makes me crazy, especially for what we get – which is delicious, no doubt, but is basically (for them) a big bowl of noodles with about an ounce of meat and for me mostly veggies. Could I do better at home? You tell me…
