So this recipe doesn't actually use the pressure cooker feature of the instant pot, Just the saute feature. It would be easier to cook this on the stovetop.

Hi - please clarify. At what point would I pressure cook and for how long? Natural or manual release? The recipe reads as if everything is done on the sauté mode but the total time for the recipe mentions release time is included. Thanks!
