Banana Bread Steel-cut Oatmeal is warm, comforting, and the flavors remind me of a freshly baked slice of banana bread. Cooking steel-cut oats in an Instant Pot® pressure cooker is an easy way to enjoy a hearty, whole-grain breakfast in minutes. There are so many flavor combinations and nutritious add-ins for your oatmeal, that you could enjoy oatmeal every day of the week in a different way. I make a big batch at least once a week, changing up the flavors depending on ingredients I have on hand. Banana Bread Steel-cut Oatmeal is always a favorite.
There is something so comforting about a plate of boiled Corned Beef and Cabbage. I think about it throughout the year, even though I only eat it on St. Patrick's Day. It holds many fond childhood memories, and I like to think that I am passing along similar ones to my family. St. Patrick's Day is still 5 days away, but I think most people do their celebrating the Saturday before. Unofficial St. Patrick's Day, perhaps? Tonight, we are celebrating too. Traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage cooked in the Instant Pot® is on the menu. This was so delicious and fast that we might celebrate again on the official holiday, next Thursday.
This isn't a recipe, per se. It is more of a technique for cooking broccoli in the Instant Pot®. I was so excited to make all sorts of steamed veggies using the steam setting in the pressure cooker. However, I was less than impressed with my first few attempts. Asparagus? Soggy. Broccoli? Reduced to a grayish hue. This is no way to treat a vegetable, and certainly no way to convince your family to eat more green things.
If you love Thin Mints® and you love cheesecake, then you need to make this recipe for Chocolate Mint Cheesecake in the Instant Pot®. I know quite a few enthusiastic Girl Scouts, so I ended up with more cookies than we could eat (who am I kidding, we could have easily eaten them). However, I wanted to figure out how to make a really great cheesecake in the Instant Pot® since all the enthusiasts are raving about it. When I was looking at my very last box of Thin Mints®, it hit me - a Chocolate Mint Cheesecake. It combines one of my favorite flavors with one of my favorite desserts.
I call this THE SOUP. Vegan Black Bean Soup is quite possibly the easiest soup in the world to make. Everyone loves it - especially kids. My non-vegetarian son requests it all the time. When their friends come over to hang out, I serve it. My son's best friend ate three bowls the last time he came over! They go home and tell their parents how delicious the black bean soup was. When the parents text me asking for the "recipe," I am almost embarrassed to share, because it is so easy. However, I always do, because I feel like all parents need easy and healthy kid-approved recipes in their repertoire.
Instant Pot® Fall-off-the-Bone Ribs are amazing. Like make them right now, amazing. Today was one of those rare 70 degree early-March days. The kind of day that brings back memories of the sun on your face and barbecues in the backyard. I decided to extend the summery theme of this day by using the Instant Pot® to make 3 slabs of ribs in under an hour. FALL-OFF-THE-BONE-RIBS IN UNDER AN HOUR. Sorry for shouting, but I am that excited.
When my husband and I were dating and in our first few years of marriage, our favorite restaurant was a Middle Eastern place that served amazing kebabs over a bed of dill rice. To this day, I still love this rice more than any other. It is sprinkled with buttery lima beans and the fragrant and unexpected flavor of dill. Recreating this favorite was a breeze in the Instant Pot®. Now to work on my kebabs.
See the cauliflower in the picture below? If you look carefully, you can see that it sat in my refrigerator for a couple of days too many. This frequently happens in my house. I buy a boatload of produce with the best of intentions, but things like the cauliflower end up alone, at the back of the fridge, getting a little funky. Who wants to waste food and money? Not I.
I recently made amazing Baked Beans in my Instant Pot®. As soon as my younger son walked into the kitchen, he said, "baked beans?" His eyes lit up, until I said that they had bacon in them. He's a vegetarian. He sweetly asked if I could make him vegetarian baked beans. How could I let him down? After a little trial and error, I came up with a winner.
