Beef Stroganoff for Instant Pot®
A truly one-pot meal! Fork-tender beef and mushrooms with egg noodles. This recipe is written using the Instant Pot®.
Instant Pot® Mushroom Risotto
Creamy risotto with softened mushrooms and a sprinkling of cheese seems like a dish best ordered at a restaurant instead of made at home. That's because traditionally risotto is made slowly, stirring often, adding 1/4 cup of hot stock at a time, then more stirring. It's a labor-intensive dish that's worth the fuss. However, risotto made in a pressure cooker is so simple and quick that it feels like cheating. It's not. This is the real stuff. You'll probably start making risotto far more often after you try this one.
Pressure Cooker Beef Stew
This beef stew was made for us when we were just infants, my mother used to put it in the blender for us as babies. To this day it reminds me of home. The pressure cooker makes the meat fall apart tender and cooks up in 20 minutes.
Pressure Cooker Chili
There's nothing like a steamy hot bowl of chili on a cold snowy day. What's even better is having it ready within 35 minutes from start to finish.
Instant Pot® Salsa Chicken
An Instant Pot® makes an easy weeknight meal even easier! Frozen chicken breasts are combined with taco seasoning and salsa for a tasty Mexican-themed meal. You can use the meat for tacos, burrito bowls, or as a topping for baked potatoes. So many possibilities! I used this the first night for chicken quesadillas. The second night I used it as a topping for baked potatoes with shredded cheese, pickled jalapenos, and sour cream.
Instant Pot® Turkey Breast
The Instant Pot® made the moistest turkey breast I have ever made. I usually let this cook in the slow cooker all day, but this turned out so much better. I couldn't believe that I had such a wonderful meal ready in less than an hour total!
Southern Cabbage for the Pressure Cooker
A good pot of cabbage can be served stand-alone with some cornbread or as a side dish to your favorite meal. Preparing cabbage in a pressure cooker preserves most of the nutrients and produces a very sweet yet savory dish. This recipe is quick, flavorful and easy!
Easy Pressure Cooker Potatoes
This is the easiest way I have come up with for cooking whole, skin-on potatoes to perfection for use in whatever recipe you need them for.
Pressure Cooker Bone-In Pork Chops, Baked Potatoes, and Carrots
This is a great, quick and easy weeknight meal. The one-pot pressure cooker makes clean-up a snap and brings dinner to the table quickly!
Pressure Cooker Split Pea Soup
This Pressure Cooker Split Pea Soup recipe will come in handy when you need to get a filling, comforting dinner on the table in a hurry.
Perfect Pressure Cooker Pot Roast
I make this meal quite often it is so simple and so quick and always comes out perfect, if you love tender roast you must try this!
Jen's Pressure Cooker Pot Roast
A pressure cooker is a must for making a tough roast tender. In our large family when I was growing up, this was everyone's most-requested birthday dinner. When my mother was reducing her household size for a move, she gave me her pressure cooker, and I am now teaching my children to make this favorite as well.
Instant Pot® Cheesecake
Cheesecake? In a pressure cooker? You bet. A creamy cheesecake relies on beating lots of air into the batter before cooking it. It also requires steaming. When you bake a cheesecake in the oven, you also need to put a pot of hot water underneath the springform pan to ensure the top of the cheesecake does not crack. In an Instant Pot®, all you need is a little water and the trivet. The result is a decadent cheesecake with no fuss. Serve with fruit on top, such as ripe blackberries.
Pressure Cooker Corned Beef Brisket
This method of cooking makes the most tender, flavorful corned beef brisket that you will ever eat! Cooking time does not include the time for the pot to reach the proper pressure and to release the steam. Cutting the finished brisket with an electric knife makes for beautifully cut meat.
Copycat V8® Juice
Full of tomatoes, celery, onion, pepper, beet, carrot, and garlic, this vegetable juice cocktail tastes even better than the store-bought version!
Pressure Cooker Black Beans
This is a great recipe for black beans that can be used alone or added to so many more recipes.
Pressure Cooker Mashed Potatoes
After years of adjusting, learning from failures, and sorting through advice from others that turned out to be good or bad, I finally have a great recipe that people flip over. The two biggest tips I've learned in making these is to heat the milk and butter before mashing in, and to use a hand masher as opposed to an electric mixer. Using these methods, I have NEVER had the potatoes come out pasty or soupy, always super-fluffy with just enough body.
Pressure Cooker Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are cooked in the pressure cooker and topped with a orange-brown sugar glaze. I love these with roasted or grilled chicken and Southern-style green beans.
Jamaican Oxtail with Broad Beans
This is a traditional Jamaican dish I was taught to cook by my grandmother.
Keto Instant Pot® Soup (Low Carb)
Just a recipe I threw together while entertaining my 6-month-old on a soccer night for my older kiddos when we had limited time. This is an alternative to fast food on busy hectic nights. I prechopped my veggies during nap time, so all I had to do was add them to the Instant Pot®! Garnish with green onions, Cheddar cheese, and bacon.
Pressure Cooker Red Beans and Sausage
I am from the South, and red beans and rice is a weekly tradition in my house. This recipe is cooked in no time, thanks to the pressure cooker! Serve over hot cooked rice.
Instant Pot® Lasagna
You might feel like making lasagna in a pressure cooker is crazy. Don't you need an oven for those crunchy edges? To make sure the meat is cooked through? How can anyone make lasagna without baking it? Well, trust us - this one is well worth making. If you have a 6- or 7-inch springform pan and you kept the trivet that came with your Instant Pot®, you can make a delicious layered lasagna pie in 30 minutes. And if you want to make it ahead, you can prep the lasagna, put it in the freezer, then put it right into the Instant Pot® for an easy dinner.
Instant Pot® Short Ribs
It's easy to love fall-off-the-bone short ribs. The only problem with a traditional braising recipe is that it will be hours before eating happens. Make short ribs in an electric pressure cooker and eat these in half the time. The pressure inside the cooker transforms any liquid into hot steam, which goes deep into the meat and produce far more tender ribs than any other method would make. Less time and better? You bet.
