  6. Ooo, the instant pot recipe and the curry recipe look so good! A lot of times stroganoff recipes call for cream-based soups which I can’t have since they have gluten in them. So I was happy to see that the instant pot recipe didn’t call for a cream-based soup. I will have to make it this fall and serve it over rice. Mmm.
