NOTE: If you are using an Instant Pot as your slow cooker, press the “Slow Cook” button repeatedly till the “More” light is selected. This is the “High” setting. Then set the timer to cook for 8 hours. The Instant Pot does not get as hot as a traditional slow cooker and needs to be set at a higher setting.
