I have another recipe for Italian Sausage Sandwiches on the blog and I believe it is the ONLY recipe that uses the "slow cooker"function on theInstant Pot® on my entire site. That recipe is a family favorite that uses pizza sauce and mushroom gravy as the sauce. I was going to make it this week for dinner, but I couldn't find mushroom gravy. Since it isn't the healthiest anyway, I decided to update the recipe using the "pressure cooker" function, for a quick, easy, and delicious weeknight meal. While I love our old standby, this recipe is faster and uses easy to find ingredients.
I browned up the sausage for a few minutes using the saute function. Since I didn't have any fresh peppers, I threw in about a cup of frozen sliced peppers. These Italian Sausages would be delicious sliced and tossed with pasta or on sausage rolls. It is a great recipe to double or triple for a crowd. Leftovers can be frozen for another time. Plus, this dinner is ready in minutes, so it is perfect for busy weeknights.
Easiest Instant Pot® Italian Sausages
2 teaspoons olive oil
5-6 Italian Sausages (hot or mild)
1 - 15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 cup sliced bell peppers (fresh or frozen)
1. Set Instant Pot® to saute. Add olive oil and heat until shimmering. Add the sausage and brown for 3 minutes/side.
2. Cover sausages with tomato sauce and peppers, stirring to combine. Set the Instant Pot® to manual - high pressure for 8 minutes. Lock lid, making sure the valve is set to sealing. When finished, do a quick pressure release, by moving the valve to venting. Serve with pasta or on rolls.
