What are people making in their instant pot?


#1

Tonight is split pea soup.
Later in the week I’m making mujadara and black lentils.


#2

Oh man, those both look so good! How was the soup?


#3

The soup is a staple around here. I add some diced pancetta at the beginning before I sauté the veg.


#4

My Instant Pot just broke, I’m waiting for the replacement. I pressure cook beets and chickpeas and sometimes yams (when it is too cold outside to bake on the Q) to add to smoothies. Nothing fancy.


#5

Nothing fancy for me: my pork roasts, boiled eggs, and potatoes. Vegetarian chili wouldn’t be a bad idea now that i think about it :thinking:


#6

I’ve been on a serious Chinese food kick lately, so my big go-to is this chicken congee recipe, or sometimes a chicken fried rice recipe. When I’m feeling like unhealthy comfort food I usually reach for my beloved Parmesan risotto recipe.

I also generally love any recipe Gina Homolka from Skinny Taste posts, and she has a whole section on pressure cooker recipes now. I think this one is gonna get made this weekend.


#7

Ooooh those look good, specially the fried rice! I have been making this mushroom and spinach risotto. I’m always amazed by how well it turns out. And a beef stew from Pinch of Yum.

I do eggs as well; they are so easy to peel for an egg curry if they’ve been cooked in the IP.

Those of you who do potatoes, @Dymerej & @apond58 - do you put them in on the rack with some water or what?


#8

I chop them up into 1 inch or so cubes and use the basket that comes with it. Keep the potatoes out of the water


#9

It’s crazy how much easier risotto is in an Instant Pot. Just as tasty, and WAY easier to make.

I’m a big fan of steel cut oats in the IP as well. I use this recipe but I usually doctor it. A favorite around my house is to add some brown sugar and real maple syrup or cinnamon. The oats take just as long as they do in a regular pot, but I love that it’s fire-and-forget. Dump the stuff in, start it, come back 30 minutes later and it’s ready to eat.

I hope this doesn’t go too far down the rabbit hole but what Instant Pot is everyone using? The risotto (both) looks phenom along with the stew, fried rice, soup…

I saw this on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/Instant-Pot-Multi-Use-Programmable-Pressure/dp/B00FLYWNYQ/ref=sr_1_3?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1542656769&sr=1-3&keywords=instant+pot

Using this one


#12

I have the 9 in 1 version of that. Got it cheap last year during Black Friday sales (it was cheaper than the 7 in 1).


#13

I’ve got the Ultra.


#14

I do the sweet potatoes out of the water with the skin on. I just want them soft to add to my smoothies.


#15

I made this recipe last night. Delicious.


#16

Plain chicken to eat as lunch/dinner all week whenever I don’t feel like making something else. Would like to try making ribs in it or something soon
