I have a question about the recipe "Marcella Hazan's Rice and Smothered Cabbage Soup" from Genius Recipes. Could this be done in an Instant Pot? If so, how long would the last cooking stage be for?

I'm sorry you haven't received an answer to this yet Missie. If you've already tried it let us know how it worked out for you in the Instant Pot.

It's an interesting idea and surely worth trying since all the ingredients are so cheap. I'd saute the onions first, though, before adding the cabbage. And I think the second stage would be 6-8 minutes.

I tested this over the weekend and making this recipe in an Instapot. I sauteed the onions first and then cooked the cabbage for 30 minutes under pressure. I added stock and rice and cooked for an additional 6 minutes. The result is exactly the same as making it the traditional way, although I suspect Marcella would not have approved....
