360 Chef: African Peanut Stew in the Instant Pot Recipe How to Make

0 Comment

Hi there! This is Geoff from
I’m in the kitchen today and I’m going to be making a recipe in the Instant
Pot called African Peanut Stew. It is really
delicious. I made this one time before
and it’s made with a lot of great ingredients. Please come a bit closer
and I’ll show you the ingredients for today’s recipe. Alright have
a look down here you can see the ingredients for the recipe. I’ve got two
large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1 inch slices. I’ve got one onion
chopped into small bits. I’ve got 3 or 4 cloves of garlic
minced, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of dried ginger (you can also
use fresh ginger if you want – I’ll put it in the description of the video). I’ve got
half a cup of peanut butter – this is just all natural peanut butter. I’ve got 1
teaspoon of salt. One can of diced tomatoes. I’ve got a 3 or 4 cups of water, 1 cup of
quinoa, which I rinsed in the strainer, and one bag of chopped kale. That’s frozen
kale. First thing we’re going to do is turn
on our Instant Pot on saute mode. So I’ll
push the saute button and I’ll push it until the display says “normal”. I
don’t want it to be too hot as I’m just going to be sauteing some vegetables. So as
you can see here I’ve got the pot starting to warm up. I’m going to be adding the oil. I’ve got about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Now we wait for that to warm up in the
pot. It’s been a couple minutes and I’ll add
the onions to the pot. I’m going to saute this for two minutes or
so until they soften. Give the onions a
stir so they don’t burn. The onions have been cooking for two minutes
and they’re nice and soft. On the Instant
Pot I’m going to push the cancel button to turn it off. I’m going to add the garlic
and then I’m going to add my powdered ginger, as well. Just tap it in. Give it a nice
stir. I’m going to add three cups of water. Scrape the whole bottom of
the pot so anything like flavors or spices on the bottom will be released
off the bottom. Next thing I’ll dump in
the sweet potatoes. I’m going to add
the can of tomatoes. I’m going to add the
peanut butter on top. Add a little bit of
salt. I’ll add the quinoa right on top and I’ll
just give it a stab so the quinoa is submerged in the water. But I’m *not* going
to stir. I’m just going to stab the quinoa so
that it’s covered in the water. That way
it will cook better but it won’t touch the bottom of the Instant Pot. Everything’s in the pot. Take your
Instant Pot lid – make sure you have a sealing dial at the top and you have
your sealing ring (silicone ring) in place and it’s evenly set around the metal
part there. I’ll lock the lid on, turn the
dial to seal and I’ll set it at high pressure (pressure cook) for seven minutes,
and I’ll turn *off* the keep warm setting. That way when it finishes it will be
able to shut off naturally. So after the
Instant Pot starts heating up inside it will build up pressure and
you’ll see some steam coming out of the valve at the top. When there’s enough
steam inside the pot the little metal valve will rise to the top and the pot
will seal. At that point the pressure
will continue building in the pot for another five minutes or so, until it
reaches its full high pressure inside the pot. At that point it will beep and
it’ll start counting down from the time that we sat which was seven minutes. After seven minutes the pot will beep
and it’s technically done but it’s still high pressure inside the pot. Because we
turned off the keep warm setting it will actually start releasing the pressure
naturally through the outside of the pot. We’ll allow it to do a natural
release for ten minutes which is basically just letting the pot sit for ten
minutes and it naturally releases the pressure. After ten minutes we’ll
turn the dial at the top to do what’s called the “quick release” to release the
rest of the pressure. Just a moment ago
the steam was coming out of the Instant Pot and the valve at the top, the metal
valve, rose to the top. Now the Instant Pot
is still bubbling inside. It’s building up steam and in about five
minutes it will start counting down from the time that we sat which was seven
minutes. So the Instant Pot just beeped
and now it is counting down from seven minutes. In seven minutes we will hear it
beep again and then it will automatically shut off because we turned
off the keep warm setting and at that point we’ll let it sit for ten minutes to do a
natural release and then we’ll do a quick release of the pressure the rest
of the way. Okay so it’s been about ten
minutes. I’m going to now unplug the
Instant Pot from the wall and I’ll move Instant Pot underneath the vent here. Now using the wooden spoon I’m going to
turn the valve on top of the Instant Pot. I’ll turn on the fan as well. The rest of
the pressure will release. So the pressure’s pretty much all
released. I’ll move then pot back over to
the counter and in a moment the little valve on
top will drop down. There we go! So when you open the lid,
make sure you open it away from your face because it’s very hot. And make sure not
to touch any of the metal parts with your hand. Give the lid a little bit
of a shake so that the drips of the hot water don’t land on your feet. Then
carry the lid over and put it by the the sink. Now I’m going to add the frozen
kale. I’m going to just dump it into the
pot and I’ll use the whole package because I really like kale. Very good, I’ve dumped in the kale. I’m going to give
it a stir to mix in the kale and now you can start seeing the consistency of this
stew. If you want this more like soup you
can add more liquid, but for me I like to have a really thick peanut stew. Stir it
gently so you don’t break the sweet potatoes up too much. When I mix in
the kale it thaws in the pot. Now
I’m going to make a little close-up video of the mixture. Mmm… looks amazing! Wow! I’ll serve some into a bowl. Then I’ll
do a taste test. That looks really good. Wow very nice! I’ll make a little close-up video of
the serving. Beautiful! Mmm mmm mmm! It looks wonderful! All right so this will be the taste test
of the dish. Have a look here – it looks
really amazing. I love the combination of
flavors. Here let me try it out! That’s
awesome! It’s stunning. It’s super amazing! I could
have this all day! Well this recipe is very much thanks to
