    1. Liz—should the ramekins or soufflé dish be covered by foil or parchment before turning the instant pot on?

  1. Liz, if you read this – you cooked it too long. I always used to cook mine too long, too. Sometimes up to 20 minutes. Seven minutes does not seem like enough time LOL. I cooked mine 7 minutes this time and it was perfect!
