Instant Pot Lemon Pepper Brussels Sprouts

I bought my Instant Pot on a whim earlier this year. It was on sale and I couldn’t pass it up. I am not much of a cook and I figured the Instant Pot could make things easier for me. I was originally looking at the smallest one, the Instant Pot 3qt. Now that I have my Instant Pot, I am always looking for easy, fun, and quick recipes to make in my new appliance! Get ready for our Instant Pot Lemon Pepper Brussels Sprouts!
