Yes, if you read my newsletter that week you know that I am part of the Instant Pot rage (this is the pot I got). It sat in the box for nearly 3 weeks from its delivery – I was nervous and scared to try it.
I joined a couple Facebook groups and saw how others were using their Instant Pot and decided to try a simple test – brown rice! It was super easy and quick, and I am happy to report I am giving away my rice cooker – one more appliance gone! The rice was perfect.
My second test was a chicken recipe. Then I also made hard cooked eggs, which also turned out great, and a quick bath of applesauce one morning with frozen apples. Two words – quick and easy – music to my ears!
My favorite part of using the Instant Pot is that I can cook FROZEN meat and it doesn’t take all day and it turns out great! There are some days where I forget to take my crock meal out of the freezer or even decide what’s for dinner, so with the Instant Pot on your side, you will still have success!
So here is a fun roundup of Instant Pot recipes that I have tried so far or will be trying in the next few weeks. You can also follow my Instant Pot Pinterest board too! If you have favorite slow cookers recipes, you can use this converter to make them into Instant Pot recipes too so they take less time.
I made a ham yesterday for Sunday dinner and this will be in the pot in the next few days!
I just picked up another free-range-organic chicken for 50% off at my grocery store – so good!
Are you excited? There are a few super time savers in this collection – I love homemade refried beans (so good and my family loves them).
