Instant Pot Goulash

Instant Pot Goulash

I have shared a few Instant Pot recipes in the last couple of months, and I hope you have enjoyed them. If those recipes haven’t convinced you that you need a Instant Pot, I hope this one does. I know I tell you all the time, but I love how great it is having a Instant Pot. It saves me so much time when it comes to busy nights for dinner. I have made Goulash before just in a pot on the stove top. Of course it takes far too many dishes, and that leads to lots of dishes to be done as well. The Instant Pot saves you the clean up time on every recipe you make in it. I think that is the best part of having a Instant Pot. I love the time it saves with clean up from each meal you prepare in it. If you all have not seen or joined my Instant Pot Link Up Party you can every other week Wednesday-Sunday. This week is the week for the party too. I host with 2 other bloggers who love their Instant Pot, and other bloggers link up. My co-hosts & I would love for you to stop by. Check it out here.  Now on to this great Instant Pot recipe.
