This recipe hardly makes sense for a pressure cooker. All I know is that if I add a cube of butter to the pot and set it for 2 minutes, my butter is transformed. This pressure cooker method is gonna give you rock-star status when friends and family just can't figure out how to make cookies taste as delectable as yours. Important to note: This has only worked successfully for me in the Instant Pot®.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Add butter to a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Close and lock the lid. Seal the vent. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 2 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release any pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions; there may not be any built-up pressure, and that's okay. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Quickly remove the pot insert from the base and swirl the butter inside until it is pale golden yellow with brown flecks collected in the bottom. Immediately pour brown butter into a container and allow to cool.

Cook's Note:

Brown butter adds extra depth of flavor to cookies, pancakes, muffins, popcorn, etc. When it's this easy to make, you can have it on hand for every one of those "secret ingredient" moments.

This came out pretty well considering I used an 8 qt Fagor multicooker. I should have taken the insert out immediately because I think it kept cooking. I may try 1 /2 minutes next time. But all in all, a great success. Read More

9.3.19 Used this today on some steamed carrots with chopped fresh tarragon, and although it tasted pretty good, I didn’t find it remarkably better than preparing stovetop. In my opinion, the down side to this is having to wash the big Instant Pot® liner, the lid, and the ring for 1 stick of butter. This certainly did provide browned butter, but I’lll probably stick with doing this stovetop in a small pan with an easy cleanup. Read More

I made this for cheese filled tortellini this evening. It was perfect! The flavor and smell are amazing! I was using the crock pot brand pressure cooker with non stick pot and got an error and it didn t come to pressure but it was still perfect! Thanks for figuring this out! Read More
