19 of the most delicious Instant Pot & other Electric Pressure Cooker recipes around! Breakfast to dinner – we’ve got you covered!
No one was more surprised than me when I fell so deeply in love with my Instant Pot. My love for simmering soups and braising meats runs deep as well, and I never dreamed that another cooking method could compete. I’d seen many electric pressure cooker recipes around the internet but simply never bothered to investigate further. After all, I was content with what I had; why go looking to stir the pot?
See what I did there? ;-)
Part of the reason I love cooking with my Instant Pot is actually because it’s so different from slow-braising and simmering. It was so strange to me when I first began looking at electric pressure cooker recipes because they all said to “close the pot and cook for xx minutes”…what?? No, I would need to see how my beautiful roast, soup, casserole, you name it, was doing through the process so I could make adjustments if needed. Not being able to see what was going on in there until it was done wasn’t something I thought my anxiety issues could handle.
Surprisingly enough, that’s part of the Instant Pot charm. To be able to toss some ingredients into a pot and have it magically transform into dinner? It’s a fun, exciting way to cook and one that I am confident I’ll be using for years to come. Not that I’ll ever give up long, lazy Sundays with a Balsamic & Dijon Pot Roast in the oven for hours, mind you. It’s just that if I want that pot roast in an hour…now I can.
I’ve made some of the Instant Pot and other electric pressure cooker recipes below and some are just on my “need to try” list. The yogurt sounds especially delicious to me (my first yogurt attempt is coming soon; that vegan version will be shortly after). I really hope you enjoy these 19 Instant Pot & other Electric Pressure Cooker Recipes!
