There are so many slow cooker recipes that require quite a bit of the initial prep to be done on a skillet over the stove. The saute feature on the instant pot allows me to do everything all in one pan. Genius! And most slow cooker recipes can be easily converted to a pressure cooker recipe (which cooks them 10 times faster!).
Depending on your time restraints, these delicious Beef Gyros can be made in the slow cooker or the pressure cooker (instant pot). They literally take less than 10 minutes to prepare and the final product is SO tender, juicy and flavorful.

Serve them in a warm pita with traditional gyro toppings, like my simple homemade tzatziki sauce, tomatoes, cucumbers and onion. We also like to add a little hot sauce, but I’ll leave that up to you.

I did it. I finally bought an instant pot. I’ll admit that I spent a few weeks rolling my eyes at all of the obsessive instant pot posts I was seeing, but it finally got to a point where I had to try it and see what all the hype was about. If something claimed to cook a beef roast in 30 minutes, I had to see that to believe it!
Mostly, I love that I can ditch my old slow cooker and rice cooker and use just ONE appliance for everything. Do you have an instant pot? What are some of your favorite things to cook in it?
So, I can now confirm that I’m a total instant pot junkie. Is “life changing” too dramatic? I love how it cooks perfect brown rice, hard boiled eggs, meats from frozen, and I especially LOVE the saute feature.
