    Please improve the formatting and make it clear that the coconut milk should be added after cooking, this important point was missed and the dish ruined. The recipe looked pretty good, just put that on a separate line

    How much meat do you use? One pound?

    This type of recipe is flexible, so that is a good estimate.

    WHERE are the directions? What setting(s) do you use on the InstantPot and for how long?

    Hi Debbie,

    Where the recipe says, “pressure for 15-20, Release pressure…” this means to cook under pressure for 15-20 minutes, so you could select the “meat/stew” button, and adjust time down to 15 minutes by pressing the “-” key. When the cooking cycle is complete, release the pressure vent, and open the lid to add the additional ingredients to cook in the heat. It’s that simple. Hope this helps.

    Do you do this under the Meat/Stew button or the Poultry button? or is there a difference between the two buttons?
