We LOVE our green masala, whether it’s used as a dip, a chutney or a marinade – coriander and chillies with other spices is King! In this recipe, I’m giving my Instant Pot a whirl by first defrosting ground beef and then allowing it to cook and infuse in a glorious green blend. Try this for yourself!
