Ultimate Instant Pot® Mashed Potatoes

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"These potatoes are unlike any other! The difference with these is that they are pressure-cooked with homemade chicken stock, which gives the potatoes so much flavor, and sometimes eliminates the need for milk or cream and salt! I made this recipe just yesterday for someone who doesn't like mashed potatoes, and they loved it!"

  1. Layer potatoes onto a steamer basket set inside a multi-functional electric pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)). Add chicken stock and secure the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 9 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  2. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.
  3. Carefully remove sliced potatoes from the steamer basket; drain and reserve remaining stock.
  4. Place butter and garlic in the empty pressure cooker; select Saute function. Cook and stir for 90 seconds. Return potatoes to the pot and mash with cream cheese.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can add a small amount of heavy cream along with the cream cheese if needed.
  • Do not use anything but fresh garlic. I can't make myself any will outright ruin this if you use anything else, especially the pre-chopped stuff in a jar.

Normally I would make as written however I am familiar with lutzflcat's reviews and trust their judgement. With that being said, I didn't dirty up my mandolin but rather just cubed my potatoes. ...
