  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.

    1. I also made this from frozen – last night. It was delicious, and the smell while it was cooking made me RAVENOUS. Cooked exactly as directed. Well, maybe we added an extra minute of sauté time and let it NPR for 2 minutes (by the time we could get back to the IP after the timer went off). 😊 Leftovers for lunch today were just as tasty!!!

  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?

  7. Hi, I’ve made this a few times & love it, but have questions. I’ve tried freezing in a gallon bag & that didn’t work well because the bag would crinkle and parts would get stuck in between (I even tried shaping using a bowl to place the bag in). So I bought the round containers and now I am having an issue getting the frozen contents out. Any suggestions on how to easily get the contents out of the round container? Would it mess with the flavor or cooking times if I thawed first? Thx!

    1. Great questions, Donna! You can run warm water over the edges where they have ‘folded’ and around the edges to help release the meal. You do not want to do this to fully thaw the meal as that would not be advisable for safe thawing. Alternatively, you can also thaw this meal completely and properly in the fridge overnight and it will still cook well for you. 🙂
