10 Takeout Favorites You Can Make in Your Instant Pot
Making restaurant-worthy meals at home takes very little time or fuss when you're equipped with an Instant Pot. Here are 10 takeout favorites to prove that you (yes, you!) can master the flavorful dishes you first discovered in your go-to restaurants.
Instant Pot® Beef Pho
This Vietnamese noodle soup is beloved for its deeply flavored, yet light and aromatic broth. This preparation infuses steamy bowls of head cold-bashing soup with fragrant star anise, ginger, cinnamon and a hint of fish sauce.
Instant Pot® Chilorio
The taco truck can't touch this succulent, boldly flavored pork! "Use it to make tacos, burritos, chimichangas, tostadas, quesadillas, sopes, or even tamales," says bd.weld.
Chicken and Veggie Miso Soup
"A Japanese-inspired take on traditional chicken noodle soup," says JoDee Phillips. "Full of fresh ingredients and delicious flavor!" Bobby Robinette raves, "This was my first Instant Pot Soup and it turned out great."
Instant Pot® Thai Red Curry with Chicken
"This sumptuous restaurant-worthy recipe is a perfect use of the Instant Pot," says Diana. "The Thai red curry can be as mild or spicy as you'd like. Chock-full of vegetables and so aromatic."
Instant Pot® Indian Butter Chicken
Talk about an excuse to stay in and get cozy, this mildly spicy dish is going to take the chill off in a cook time that's less than 30 minutes. Yes, there's a yogurt-based marinade involved, but it's easy to put together the night before and get the chicken tucked in for a good, long soak. Basmati rice cooks in the Instant Pot in just six minutes.
Instant Pot® Carne Adovado
Instant Pot® Mongolian Chicken

Instant Pot® Coconut-Curry Chicken
"This rich, creamy coconut-curry dish comes together quickly in an Instant Pot," says Helene Choi. "Customize the taste by using more or less curry powder and sugar. Delicious over jasmine or basmati rice!"
Easy Instant Pot® Chicken Tikka Masala
"A wonderful and easy midweek dinner option," says Fioa. "Simple and absolutely irresistible chicken tikka masala made in the Instant Pot with all the flavors of garam masala and turmeric."
Instant Pot® Sweet and Sour Pork
