  1. Quick question – do you put both containers in the IP at the same time? Do I need to worry if the ice hasn’t thawed to generate a lot of liquid at the end of the 5 minutes? Do I add extra liquid?

  2. Made this tonight! Couldn’t figure out how to get the double disposable containers to work, so I just made it fresh. Soooooooooo good. Felt it needed an extra TB of apple cider vinegar and an extra teaspoon of salt. Everyone loved it!

  3. This really good and a great way to hide veggies! I used ground turkey and I didn’t have sweet potato or rosemary at home so I left them out. It still was amazing and I’ll be making it again.

  4. Has anyone tried this from frozen? My experience with freezing any recipe that contains beets is that the beet flavor permeates everything and overpowers the entire dish when it is cooked or reheated. For that reason, I’m inclined to bag the beets separately when freezing, but would like to hear if anyone else has had good success without doing that.

  5. I made it from frozen according to the recipe and everyone likes it, even those who don’t usually like beets.

  6. Hi I made this as an instapot recipe and loved it. I’m part of a slow cooker meal share group and would love to use this. How do you think this would translate as a slow cooker meal?
