  • Next, secure the instant pot lid. Cook on Manual/High Pressure for 40 minutes with a 15 minute natural release.
    Once completed, remove the instant pot lid, select sautée and adjust the timer to 30 minutes. Mix the cornstarch and water to create a slurry. Pour the mixture in, and continue to cook until sauce has thickened (create more slurry if needed or if you want it thicker).
