Pressure Cooker Pork Chili Verde is a cheaters carnitas - one of my favorite foods. The pork is tender, yet crispy and full of amazing flavor. Perfect on a taco or salad or even served over rice. Making this in the Instant Pot® means you can have slow-braised pork in about an hour.
I love making potato breakfast hash. I love crispy potatoes and I definitely love intensely flavored sweet potatoes. This Instant Pot ® potato breakfast hash combines both for a deliciously satisfying and savory breakfast or brunch.
I have a confession. I love the rice pudding that you buy in the little plastic cups in the dairy aisle at the grocery store. You know the one. It is a little embarrassing, but it reminds me of my yiayia's homemade rice pudding (the more I think about it, she might have passed the same rice pudding off as her own.) The grocery store rice pudding is delicious, creamy, and full of vanilla flavor. I think my recipe for Instant Pot® Basic Rice Pudding tastes remarkably similar. Plus, it is ready in an instant.
I am a city-girl, born and raised. I took the train to H.S., know how to hail a cab, live in an urban area, and love all of the things city living has to offer. That said, my dear friend Laura lovingly refers to me as "Amish" and I kind of love it. I mean, sometimes after negotiating rush-hour traffic and the hustle and bustle of my daily life, I long for a simplicity. Something that involves churning-butter, baling hay, more realistically - making homemade yogurt. I have been making yogurt for years and try to make it every week. I make it in my oven, or in my snazzy yogurt maker, and now in my Instant Pot® on the yogurt setting.
If you are not storing your vegetable scraps in a Ziploc bag in the freezer, then you need to start now. Every time you peel a carrot, or chop onions and celery, save the scraps. You will be so thankful because you can make vegetable stock in an instant, and it is so easy. I have been doing this for years, and use them any time I need chicken or vegetable stock.
Chicken stock in the Instant Pot®, yes please. I make a lot of stock. It is a great way to use up leftovers and so many recipes I use call for chicken stock. I have tried every way imaginable to make it, like simmered on the stove top, in the oven, and in my crock pot. Each of these methods take hours, coaxing out all of the flavors from the bones, aromatics, and spices. These are all wonderful methods, but none are particularly fast.
Barbecue Chicken in the middle of winter? Using the Instant Pot ® to take a frozen block of chicken to delicious goodness in 20 minutes? Amazing.
This is one of my favorite pressure cooker steel cut oat recipes. First of all, let me tell you why I love using my Instant Pot ® for steel cut oatmeal. Steel cut oats are whole oat groats that instead of being rolled are cut into pieces. They are a whole-grain, and have a nutty flavor and chewy texture. Typically, they are made on the stove top, but they require that you pay attention and take at least 25 minutes of simmering. In a pressure cooker, you add everything to the pot, and once it has reached temperature, you have PERFECT steel cut oatmeal in 10 minutes. You do not have to pay attention to it and it never burns (not that I would know anything about that).
Until I started using the Instant Pot®, I felt that making risotto was too fussy for me. It would either be too crunchy or too mushy. It just lacked the right consistency. Risotto is a dish that requires attention and patience. While it is not technically hard, I sometimes lack attention and patience when I am cooking. Enter the Instant Pot® pressure cooker. It is a cheaters method for making a really good risotto. I am sure risotto enthusiasts would argue that it is not technically risotto, it is pretty darned good and perfect for the everyday cook looking to impress with a fancy dish.
I should call these Instant Pot® Baked Beans - Bacon Beans, because they are made with a ton of bacon. Oh my gosh, they are good. Sweet, spicy, and EASY. I will admit that I usually just open a can of baked beans and call it dinner, but these are easy enough to make that I should not do that any more. The recipe makes a ton, so make it tonight and freeze half for a meal in the future.
