Even though we hauled our Instant Pot across the country with us on our big drive last summer, it took me a little bit of time to warm up to it.
While it’s nice to be able to saute, slow cook, pressure cook, etc in one dish, the time needed to get up to pressure (15+ minutes) is annoying and makes weeknight IP’ing (as the cool kids are saying) more difficult.
Nonetheless, I’ve persevered and have been actually enjoying our Instant Pot lately and found a few recipes I’d like to share here (and keep on record for quick reference):
Urvashi Pitre’s Instant Pot Butter Chicken from the New Yorker
We pair ours with naan, jasmine rice, and roasted cauliflower with slivered almonds and raisins.
Instant Pot Salisbury Steak With Mushroom Gravy by Live Simply
We nestle these Salisbury steaks in a bed of creamy, garlic mashed potatoes with a veggie on the side.
It’s not that photogenic of a dish and I always devour it right away, so no photos. Please use your imagination.
Instant Pot Beef and Broccoli by Savory Tooth
Michael has a soy sensitivity, so when we can avoid it, we do. Thankfully, coconut aminos exist and are delicious as a soy sauce substitute in this recipe. We sub them 1:1 and the sauce tastes so much like “normal” sauce!
I electronically hoard other Instant Pot tips, tricks, and recipes on Pinterest too. Check them out. And please share some of your IP favorites for me to try out!
