Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Bone-in ham steak can vary in saltiness. Taste finished soup, and adjust seasoning if necessary before serving.
  • tip 2
    After cooking thick soups and stews, always be sure to inspect the anti-block shield and exhaust valve in the lid of the Instant Pot® to be sure they aren’t blocked with food.
