Instant Pot Pad Thai
Everyone is finally healthy again! I streamed 3 days last week, but wanted to take it easy on the blog and start getting recipes up again so we can start the 30 days/30 Instant Pot recipes over!
So here we go! Day one of my Instant Pot Challenge!
I decided to make Shrimp Pad Thai on stream today because a ton of people in one of my discord servers were talking about it. Plus I haven’t had a good Pad Thai in forever!
Yall, I was unsure of how the rice noodles would come out, but my goodness they were perfect! Seriously perfect!
The Instant Pot never ceases to impress me!
