    I’ve made this several times and sometimes even double the recipe. Haven’t changed anything. Leftovers the next day are even better.

    Love this recipe. Instant Pot makes it in 30 painless minutes. My 5 year old devours it.

    Have made this twice now and absolutely love it. I didn't use olives as I absolutely hate them. Also for vinegar I used balsamic as that was all I had and some pickle juice from a jar of gherkins. It tasted fabulous:))

    always a winner! Both stove top and slow cooker versions are yummy. Definitely double and will make again!
