NEW RECIPE: ABC Beef Soup Instant Pot

Happy Fall everyone! Although Fall doesn’t quite exist in Florida like most Northern States we still really enjoy this season.  The temperature in Orlando has actually dropped a bit and if we go outside very early in the morning we can almost feel “Fall”… LOL. Colder temperature always translate to soupy/brothy dishes for me.  Yesterday …

Vietnamese Wonton Noodle Soup

Recently I scored a few set of chicken bones at the local Asian market. I’ve been making broth for different dishes using these chicken bones.  I love using the IP to make chicken stock.  It’s so easy, effortless and efficient.  I can turn 2-3 lbs of chicken bones ($2) into over 20 cups of chicken …

Cơm Gà – Vietnamese Chicken Rice

So I like to ask the kids in the morning what they want Mommy to make for dinner.  I typically follow with “noodle soup?” hoping they would say yes… LOL.  My husband then pointed out that most of my recipes posted are of noodle soup of some sort.  So I went out of my way …

Bún Măng Gà Instant Pot

Fresh Bamboo Shoot with Chicken Noodle Soup

If you are like me and don’t like to cook whole chicken in the IP just for a few bowls of noodle soup then consider using chicken leg quarters.  Leg quarters consists of about a quarter of the chicken meat on the chicken, hence the name!  It includes a thigh, drumstick, and a part of the …

Súp Măng Cua (Asparagus Crab Soup)

A super belated post but I wanted to share that I also used the leftover chicken broth to make Asparagus Crab Soup last week.  It was easy peasy, in less than 30 minutes!  Dinner was served on time 😉 Here is the link to the recipe: Súp Măng Cua (Asparagus Crab Soup)  

Chicken Broth with IP

So now that I’m back to work full-time I’m trying to come up with ways to save even more time in the kitchen. I’ve actually never made chicken broth just to save or freeze for later. I always ended up cooking the bones and using it immediately for a dish. The other night while putting …
