Instant Pot Brown Sugar-Glazed Carrots
These Brown Sugar-Glazed Carrots make a delicious holiday side dish and they only take 4 minutes to make in your Instant Pot.
I’m so EXCITED about today’s recipe!
Well, I’m not going to lie the first time I used it I was a little scared.
I don’t know, I felt like it was going to blow up or something . So after I realized that I’m not going to blow up the house, I started making everything I could in my Instant Pot.
And with Thanksgiving only a couple weeks away, I started trying to make all my favorite Thanksgiving side dishes in my Instant Pot to see if they would taste the same.
Not only did they taste just as delicious as they would if I made them on the stove but it only took 4 minutes to cook these Brown Sugar-Glazed Carrots in my Instant Pot.
