Review: Instant Pot Southern BBQ Cooking Sauce

      A new week & its' Y2K twenty years later. If anyone was old enough to remember Y2K (I was a Senior in high school in 2000), everyone freaked out, bought a bunch of random crap thinking the world was going to end. With the coronavirus, I know that the average, healthy person will be fine. Staying too focused on the news & other media will have you stressing out from fear & anxiety. I am going to write a post on how to cope with both of those tomorrow.

Around here, I am going to keep it lighthearted. I think when times are chaotic, that keeping a positive attitude, while staying in a high, good vibration helps. We all know how one negative thought or one person freaking out from fear can spread kind of like everyone going & buying all the toilet paper in the city (which I still do not understand). 

Today, I am going to share the second review from the Instant Pot sauces I received from Influenster. This flavor was Southern BBQ. Now anyone who knows on thing about me: I do not like barbeque sauce. I usually put white sauce on my barbeque. I did try it though.  Again, I received the sauce complimentary to review for testing purposes.

-1 Tbsp oil
-2 lbs meat (I used pork, cubed)
-1/2 cup water
-1 jar-Instant Pt Southern BBQ sauce

-Set Instant Pot to saute', adding oil.
-Add pork to pot, cook for 5 minutes while stirring frequently.
-Add sauce & water to pot, do not stir.
-Close pot & turn the Pressure Release Valve to the sealing position.
-Cook for 6 minutes on the High Pressure/Manual setting.
-When finished cooking, use the Quick Pressure Release to release the pressure before removing the lid.

Below is the end result: 
I put the pork over brown rice. The verdict is that it was not that bad. Cooking this sauce was different than the Lemon Herb in the I added 1 lb more of meat & I added a little less water. It helped give the sauce a better consistency than the with more water & less meat. The sauce also somewhat spicy. The two sauces were two opposite ends of the spectrum: one had little flavor & the other had a lot. I would try this again but next time I would use a different type of meat & add some vegetable to mix it up.

Happy start of the week. Peace & Blessings, all & keep safe out there.
