Easy step by step video to show you how to make Chinese Egg Custard with Egg Tofu (Savoury) in your Instant Pot

I REALLY do like making simple (but tasty) dishes. I mean, using the Instant Pot IS suppose to save you time. No need to babysit the stovetop anymore. It really is set and forget. I also love how I’m able to get a meal on the table without too much hassle. I’m like a super cook without needing to be super because the pressure cooker has the super part covered 🙂 This savory / savoury Chinese Egg custard (with Tofu) is simply delicious and simple too.
