Honestly, it’s not hard to make the gravy and I was a bit skeptical as to why anyone would need to speed up the process by cooking it in the Instant Pot. I gave it a go this past weekend…..and I am a believer! I wouldn’t say that it’s quicker to make the gravy in the Instant Pot but it comes out SO MUCH CREAMIER! I was impressed and will make it in the Instant Pot from now on.

  • 2 tablespoons bacon fat

  6. Stir until bacon fat has melted and ingredients are combined
  7. Place the lid on the Instant Pot and set the valve to seal.Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes
