Instant Pot Swiss Steak — 6 Comments

  1. Where can I find an Instapot to buy . I have not seen any like that with directions on it for what mode you are cooking in. .

    It would help to make cooking much simpler for me since I am an older person
    and can not stand for long periods of time

  2. This was really good and so very simple to put together. I did cheat a bit bc my family does not like the chunks of tomatoes so I added some spaghetti sauce I had on hand. That took care of the seasoning for me as well. Thanks for the recipe!
