Instant pot recipes
 
Spicy pulled chicken

2-3lbs chicken breast
1 16oz jar pepperoncini peppers
1 med-large onion sliced
1 pkg taco seasoning or 2-3tbsp home made

trim fat and put breasts in pot

drain jar into pot, stem and slice peppers. I like to discard as many of the seeds as possible. They kind of pull out with the stem if you squeeze just right. lol

add onion and seasoning

close and push poultry

after cooking is done, release pressure and fork shred the chicken. Serve on taco shells, lettuce, whatever.

Beef stew:

We've used different cuts, added or removed veggies, just plain oil or olive oil. The sky is the limit with beef stew.

Pork carnitas:

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/246332/...essure-cooker/

Changes! Once the meat is coated, turn the pot on saute and sear the meat. Once it's all seared, continue with adding the rest. We usually halve the garlic.

Cook only for 35minutes or so, release the pressure and fork shred the chunks. Turn back on saute to thicken it up a bit.

We also quick roasted our pie pumpkins, made easy work of it. After the pumpkin halves are soft we run it through the food processor or immersion blender, bag and freeze.

Thanks! I cooked a chuck roast with potatoes today. Took about 90 minutes and was better than all day in the crock pot.

That's what I've been saying! :D
(Clean up is easier too)

Yeah, it does wonders with pot roasts. Stews only take about 30 minutes and come out as tender as anything I used to cook all day in the crock pot.

The other day used the leftover turkey and bones to make stock for a turkey noodle soup.

And thanks for posting those recipes TT, the pork carnitas look awesome.

Good to know. I've been thinking of picking up an Instapot.

We just used it again yesterday, left over ham, package of 15 bean, veggies and seasoning... soup! We used on Easter. Love our instant pot.

Captain Tuttle 04-21-2017 08:07 PM

We have one, they are excellent

gduck 04-24-2017 12:18 PM

I like to pick up soup bones from the butcher and use those to make stock in the Instant Pot. When I have a little extra time I'll make up a batch and freeze. Comes in handy.

I've seen some people will freeze stock in ice cube trays and use those in place of bullion. I haven't tried that trick yet though.

Love hard boiled eggs in the thing

Great website for eggs in an instant pot

We will never ever go back to doing eggs any way different. HUGE +1 on that.

gduck 04-25-2017 12:49 PM

Huh, never tried hard boiled eggs in it. Never found it that big a deal to just boil a pot of water. Does the Instant Pot cooking method make the eggs any easier to peel? If so I might have to try it out.

tt3 04-25-2017 01:53 PM

Unbelievably so. I read about it on some homesteading sites. Even freshly laid eggs peel clean, it's pretty awesome. I'm still working on the cooling quickly part, my last batch came out a little "green" in the yolk from over cooking. Gotta cool them quick. 5 pressure, 5 wait, release and cool is what I've been doing. Maybe I'll try 4 wait or 3 wait before release.

Don-Dad 04-26-2017 07:12 PM

Going to make mac and cheese in the instapot tonight, and a few beer can chickens on the grill, mmmm.

Holy chickens! I just made some boiled eggs in the intant pot. A cup of water, the steam rack, 5 eggs, 13 minutes on low pressure, quick release, and a couple minutes in cold tap water.

I've never been able to peel eggs so easily, and they were fully cooked and moist. This is only way that I will be hard boiling eggs.

gduck 05-12-2017 12:09 PM

Just did hard boiled eggs in the Instant pot last night (high pressure for 5 minutes, let pressure naturally cool for 3 minutes, then vent remaining pressure, put eggs in ice bath). Not only did the eggs come out perfectly how I like them to be, but the shell slipped right off with almost no effort.

Yup, never making hardboiled eggs any other way.

We made bone broth last night after eating a chicken. We're still loving it!

Mark B. 02-27-2018 08:22 PM

FYI! I know these gadgets have been used by some of you all. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

Yeah, chicken bone broth is good. That's the root of the GAPS diet.

Wow, that would suck. Fortunately mine isnít the model listed, but Iím definitely going to keep an eye on it.

irie feeling 02-28-2018 01:34 PM

Dang. I'm sure if a meltdown happened at my house it'd be my fault for not keeping an eye on it.

Ours gets used a lot for breakfast prep to keep mornings less hectic. We'll set the timer for it to have oatmeal ready in the morning right when the kids wake up. Mixing in some protein powder helps make it more filling and stick to them a bit more throughout the day.

Makes mornings MUCH less stressful when my groggy butt doesn't have to do anything for breakfast but scoop out of a pot.
