I could have sworn I made this in my Instantpot- following your instructions – but now they are gone???
Hi Jill, sorry we’re a little late to reply. 🙂
Yes, we’ve taken down the Instant Pot recipe for now. Coming up with a Version 2.0 of the same sometime soon. Thanks! 🙂
What type of potatoes and tomatoes work best?
Hi Melissa, there’s no specific ‘type’ of potatoes and tomatoes for this dish, really. We’ve used Russet potatoes and Roma tomatoes, but other variants should work just as well. 🙂
Also which type of onion do I use? Thanks.
We use red onions, but white or yellow should also be fine. ^_^
Delicious and very tasty
