Savory Instant Pot Thai Peanut Noodles
I am a huge fan of Thai food, it is always so flavorful and helps add some new elements of flavor into our meals. I love dining out, but we live in a very small town, so the option for Thai food is not gonna happen. So, if I begin to get a craving I know I have to travel far, or I can pull out my Instant Pot and get cooking. This is a one-pot Thai dish that can be made in less than 30 minutes. I can’t drive and get some in that amount of time, so I might as well whip some up.

Simply saute the garlic, ginger, peppers, and sesame oil for a couple of minutes. Next, you want to mix in the honey, peanut butter, soy sauce, chicken broth, and rice vinegar. Take your spaghetti noodles and break them so they are down so they are in the liquid, and cook on high for 4 minutes. Do a quick release and you have perfectly cooked peanut noodles ready to dish up for your family.
