We’re hosting a free virtual cooking class led by celebrated cookbook author and chef, Bruce Weinstein, on Tuesday, February 28 from 6:30-7:30p ET. This class will highlight three recipes using one of our favorite kitchen appliances, the Instant Pot®.
If you’d like to cook along, we suggest choosing just one of the recipes to focus on. We also highly recommend doing the homework – this is just prep work to do in your kitchen prior to the class that will ensure you are able to follow along without falling behind.
- All-American Chili which uses ground beef (from frozen).
- Chili Con Carne which uses diced pork shoulder.
- BBQ Pulled Chicken which uses boneless skinless chicken breast.
If you don’t want to cook along, take notes and enjoy the class from the comfort of your couch. And don’t worry if you can’t make it. If you’re registered, we’ll send you a link to watch the class when it’s convenient for you and you can always refer to this page for the recipes.
Plus, we’re doing an Instant Pot® Giveaway! We are giving away FIVE Instant Pot® Rio 6-quart Multi-Use Pressure Cookers, V6 (a $99 Value) during the class! Giveaway is limited to attendees only.
If you are going to cook along, we recommend you choose only one recipe. Trying to do 2 or 3 at time can get confusing without all the kitchen help and support that Bruce will have in the test kitchen.
For the All-American Chili
- Make sure your spices are all measured.
- Open all your canned ingredients.
- The beans should be rinsed and drained and either in a bowl or back in the rinsed out cans
- Take your frozen meat out of the freezer before class starts but it should still be frozen when we cook.
- You can peel your onion if you like or wait and do that with Bruce.
For the Chili Con Carne
- Make sure your pork shoulder is thawed and ready to cook.
- Bruce will start cooking this recipe with his chili paste already made and his meat already cut up. If you are cooking along, Bruce will show you how to cut the meat, make the chili paste, and offer some tips of cutting up bell peppers after his pot of chili starts cooking.
- You can wait and start cooking yours once he shows you these techniques, but you will need to at least have your chilis prepped and soaked as that is a 20 minute process.
- And have all your spices and other ingredients measured and ready as they are listed on the ingredient list.
For the Pulled Chicken
- Have all of your spices, stock, brown sugar, honey, and ketchup measured.
- Make sure your chicken is thawed and ready to cook.
