Instructions
  1. Cook the bacon in a separate pan, and cook it to just under too done. You want it to be sturdy when you cut it into little pieces. Drain the bacon and then when it is cool, chop the bacon into quite small pieces. Set aside.
  2. Turn the Instant Pot on to saute, and when it is hot, add the ghee to melt.
  3. Add the onion and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring often. Add some salt and pepper here.
  4. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute.
  5. Deglaze the liner with about a cup of the broth. Scrape all the little bits off the bottom, and then add the rest of the broth.
  6. Add all of your potatoes. I like a lot of spuds! Cover the potatoes with 2-3 cups of water so your amount of potatoes is just covered.
  7. Add the bacon grease from the pan you cooked your bacon in. Stir in.
  8. Cover and make sure you lid is correctly locked on. Set your toggle to sealing. Set manual/pressure cook for 15 minutes. Allow for a ten minute natural pressure release.
  9. Carefully open your lid. Take a potato masher and carefully mash the potatoes, stirring as you go. You want about half of the potatoes still in pretty nice chunks.
  10. Add the bacon pieces and stir in well.
  11. Add the can of full-fat coconut milk. Stir well, making sure to incorporate everything in the whole pot. Ladle a little of the soup out into a bowl, and cool it enough that you can taste it. Adjust the seasoning with some more salt and pepper.
  12. This soup can take quite a bit of black pepper, so be generous but careful.
