Thanksgiving dinner in an electric pressure cooker? Yes, you can! This recipe makes a beautifully moist turkey with savory stuffing at the same time, and all those tasty turkey juices make up a quick herb gravy at the end.
An electric pressure cooker makes great chili in a snap, and it can also bake up delicious corn bread at the same time. When cooked, the top of the corn bread will appear pale, but the bottom will be golden brown — just invert it onto a serving plate for the best presentation.
This slow-cooker version of the Middle Eastern classic is given a twist with ras el hanout, a North African spice blend that can include ginger, anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, peppercorns, cloves, cardamom, nigella, mace, galangal, turmeric and dried flowers such as lavender and rose.
Bright tomato sauce with a splash of vodka gets simmered with juicy meatballs — and it can all be made in advance and ready to cook in the Instant Pot. We like to serve them with steamed green beans or broccoli, but you can also enjoy with crusty bread to soak up the sauce.
No need for Indian takeout or packaged frozen curry dinners — we’re showing you how to make your own. Simply mix together the sauce ingredients with the chicken and freeze until ready to use. Then dump the contents into the Instant Pot for an easy dinner, with no mess and no fuss.
When you cook hulled barley – also called whole-grain barley – in a pressure cooker, you don’t have to soak it beforehand, which cuts down on prep time. It also makes the barley tender and creamy without all the stirring you usually have to do to make risotto on the stove top.
The Instant Pot is a terrific tool for cooking dried beans because it saves you hours of soaking and simmering. Cooking times can vary depending on the batch, so test a chickpea after cooking, and if it’s still tough, add another 5 minutes cook time, then repeat.
Want to do some easy batch cooking with your Instant Pot? Omit the sweet potatoes and broccoli and double the zesty chicken and barbecue sauce ingredients – the leftovers freeze beautifully.
