Instant Pot! Good recipes and ideas?



Recommended Posts

I love my Instant Pot. The meat is a lot juicier than the crock pot. I think it'll be perfect once I can start eating more solids. It's definitely not "instant", but it's hands off, which I appreciate.

LOL, ok, thank you for clarifying. I was so confused and didn't get the joke.

I have been going to CO a great deal lately, ahem, to work on my potential glaucoma issues ;-). It's all just research at this point.

I prefer the crock pot over pressure cookers so far, but I am open to change for a compelling reason.

My fave lamb shank recipe.

4 lamb shanks

1 red onion & 1 white onion

Garlic

1 litre chicken stock

Dried oregano

Dried thyme

Bay leaves

3 large tomatos

1 eggplant

3 potatoes

Add a little oil in the pressure cooker, sear lamb shanks.

Add onions, garlic, oregano, thyme, bay leaves, 1 litre stock, salt/pepper.

Pressure cook for 10 mins, release pressure and open lid.

Then add the eggplant, tomatoes and potatoes and return to pressure for 30 mins.

This is super fragrant and totally yum!

I love serving juicy meat but it is a very hands-on process and not instant.

Can't help it......grillers do it slower............

Alright people! I had to do it. I just ordered my instant pot after seeing the recipe for lamb shanks and watching a few videos.

Looking forward to experimenting with it.

Ok then, I just ran the instant pot steam test, cleaned the pot and I have Baby back ribs in the pot. 30 minutes from now they should be fall off the bone tender.

I am going to have play with this thing all week!

I use my pressure cookers (stovetop and electric) quite often, for many different things, but my favorite thing to use it for is hard-boiled eggs! I can make large batches and even when using fresh eggs they are simple to peel when cooked in the pressure cooker. Every machine is different I'm sure with regard to times, but I do 18 at a time and in 6-8 minutes (once at set pressure - low) they are perfectly done! Times don't seem to change regardless of how many I cook at a time either, making it easy to test with a few to get your timings down, then add more to suit your needs.

Great Snacks and source of protein!

I could not believe how wonderful this pot made BBQ ribs for me yesterday. Literally 30 minutes and they were fall off the bone tender, finished them on the grill with homemade peach BBQ Sauce that was incredible.

Tomorrow I will make chicken cacciatore in it. I won't be making Pasta with it, just a salad and green Beans.

My vote is the pot is going to replace several kitchen appliances for me.

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.
