Notes

Tip if the broth/soup is a little runny you can thicken with corn starch.  Mix 1 tablespoon corn starch to 2 tablespoons water - mix well first and then bring the broth back to the boil by turning on the instant pot to sauté again and add the mix in stirring well. Boil for about 2-3 minutes to cook out the cornstarch.
