    Teriyaki Pork Recipe. For Instant Pot, It says to cook for 60 minutes. What setting? I have another brand of pressure cooker. Should I cook on the meat setting?

    • Tricia McFarland says:

      I was wondering the same because I have a diff pressure cooker. Ended up putting in the crock pot. But if I did use the pc, I’d use the beef/pork setting.

    • Kelly McNelis says:

      I use the basic “pressure cook” button because I figure it will work with whatever model of instant pot people have.

  • Kathy Boyle says:

    Hi Kelly! New here 😊 I’m just curious do we add the wet ingredients on the bottom? I know you said to add the protein last so it will be on top, but I’m not sure about liquid?
    Thank you Kelly.

    • Kelly McNelis says:

      In most recipes it doesn’t make a difference. If it is a recipe with a lot of ingredients I normally do veggies at the bottom, sauces and spices in the middle (so they don’t get left in the bag when it’s time to cook), and meat at the top.

    I just subscribed to Family Freezer Friday. I the teriyaki pork tenderloin as my first recipe. I made this with a boneless pork roast. It cane out amazing! The recipe was very simple to make, then put it in the crock pot and got to do other things. I made it with cauliflower instead of Broccoli because that’s what I had. My husband raved about how tender and flavorful it was. We both loved the sauce. I also made the beef taco soup, white chicken chili, and lemon-garlic chicken, 2 of each to freeze. I have 6 meals ready to use with very little effort. I am loving this!

    Ok mine is the power pressure cooker XL. I guess to sauté, you leave lid off & click meat function. Hope I’m doing this right. Just wondering approx. how long to sauté it for? Also, I wanted to try one of these recipes right away after signing up so it wasn’t frozen. Are you able to tell me about how much less time that usually takes? All the recipes look great!

  • Karen MacDonald says:

    Oops, just noticed 5 minutes! Can’t edit my comment. Lol just need to know how long to cook it if already defrosted? Thx,!

  • Ginny Jeanmougin says:

    Looks great! New member here. For crockpot instructions, it doesn’t say to put it in frozen or thawed? Which should it be? Thanks!

  • Ginny Jeanmougin says:

    Sorry forgot to mention. Making it tomorrow/Thursday. Hopefully someone can answer soon? Thanks.

  • Lisa McDaniel says:

    Would pork loin boneless chops work as well instead of the roast? Would I cook for just as long?

  • Diane Castonguay says:

    Hi, how do I get to the shopping list for each recipe, I’m a newbie.

  • Coreena Butts says:

    Made this last night for the first time. I ended up cooking it in high for 4 hours because I didn’t put it on in time, but I didn’t freeze it first and it turned out perfectly. It was so full of flavor and so tender. Even my two picky grandchildren loved it! I love these simple yet healthy recipes!

  • Robin Guffey says:

    Made this last night for dinner. My family loved it!

  • Janette Naines says:

    Making the teriyaki pork tenderloin today, and we’re looking forward to it, and the prior recipe the wedding soup was awesome! TGIF
