best instant pot recipes

Now that I’ve touted the beauty of the Instant Pot, and perhaps gotten a few of you on board, the pressure is on for me to come up with new recipes. It’s going to take some time to amass a collection, so to tide us all over, I asked some of my fellow foodies for their Instant Pot favorites. I’ve curated 10 tasty recipes, which you’ll find below. For those of you who are already skilled with pressure cooking, I’d love to hear about your go-to meals, so please share in the comments section (feel free to add links to recipes you like).

I’ve never tried one–or know anyone who has one–but it’s always fun to learn something new.

These recipes look interesting.

I am so curious about the instant pot! When I first began to notice all the hype, I wasn’t sure how much I would use it. But, it seems like a real time-saver! I would love to add one to my kitchen!

02.27.2017 at5:53 AM #


LOVE MINE!! Use it several times a week. After I cooked a roast in under an hour that was flavorful and as tender as could be….I was sold! You will not be disappointed and will wonder why you didn’t get one sooner!

02.27.2017 at6:01 AM #

Susan Lorentsen

I love your blog and your recipes are terrific!! I have no idea how the Instant Pot works but I love to cook and would love to try one!!

02.27.2017 at6:07 AM #


Looks amazing. We use an Instant Pot at our preschool!

02.27.2017 at6:35 AM #


I have been borrowing an Instant Pot from a friend and don’t want to give it back – I need my own!

02.27.2017 at6:44 AM #

Val Barnhart

Hi Katie, I would love the chance to own an instapot! The recipes sound terrific. Thanks for keeping us informed on the latest nutrition and cookware. Also in the market for a new blender-can you recommend? Thanks, Valerie

02.27.2017 at6:45 AM #


Thank you for all the great recipes! Now I would love to have an Instant Pot to cook them in! From all I’ve read, it appears to be a kitchen game-changer.

02.27.2017 at6:49 AM #


The instant pot would make dinner time easier.

02.27.2017 at6:50 AM #


Thanks for this opportunity…A new cooking appliance is always exciting!

02.27.2017 at6:51 AM #


Sounds like an incredible, and yummy timesaver!

02.27.2017 at6:59 AM #

Sue Henderson

reminds me of my mother’s pressure cooker–but much less scary!! would love to give it a try…

02.27.2017 at7:09 AM #


Thank you for reviewing and providing recipes! Being able to accomplish in an hour or two what takes an entire day in a slow cooker is a great advantage! Also, I’ve read the one pot makes flawless hard boiled eggs!

02.27.2017 at7:09 AM #


Yum! I would love to try these recipes in a new Instant Pot! Thank you for sharing.

02.27.2017 at7:11 AM #


Love this blog and really would love to have an instant pot!

02.27.2017 at7:15 AM #

Anne Mullen

As a non-enthusiastic cook, like Kate, I’m always looking for something to make it easier. Living on a boat, I got used to using a pressure cooker, but have gotten out of the habit on land. The lamb curry recipe is enough to tempt me to use an Instant Pot instead of having it simmer all day. Here’s hoping…..

02.27.2017 at7:20 AM #

Carolyn Edwards

The fact that this is a multi-tasker is a huge plus. Exchange out slow-cooker, pressure-cooker and yogurt-maker. All in one. Yes!

02.27.2017 at7:27 AM #

Jenn Chic

We would looooove an instant pot! Thanks for the giveaway! And thanks for all you do to make time in the kitchen more fun and delicious!

Micheline Crawford

Need to simplify cooking and this may be the perfect solution. I would like my first recipe to be Korean Tacos. My second will be shredded beef for my tostadas. Crossing my fingers 🙂

02.27.2017 at7:52 AM #

Kim Fishback

Hi Katie, the reason that I would love to win an instant pot is that I have wanted to learn how to use a pressure pan. I have always used a pressure cooker to can foods. My sister uses a pressure pan and makes delicious soups, beans and chicken. After reading about your experience I have been thinking about how healthy it would be to learn how to cook with this instant pot. A bonus would be that I could add this method to my cooking lessons with my grandsons. Thanks, Kim

02.27.2017 at7:56 AM #


Would love to “experience” an Instant pot! Great recipes.

02.27.2017 at8:07 AM #


Time-saver, energy-saver, a healthy and a delicious way of cooking… Wow, I already love the instant pot! I have been a “foodie” for the last two years I am always looking for new, hearty, healthy, and yummy recipes!
I would love this instant pot for my loved ones and I to enjoy great moments of conviviality around a hearty meal ! Because sharing a delicious meal with loved ones at any moment of the day or the week, is, to me, the highlight of the week, the moment a lot of us look forward to! Thank you.

Our slow cooker was damaged in our recent move back to SF and your Instant Pot review was so compelling, I’d like to replace the slow cooker with an Instant Pot. Thanks, Katie! Can’t wait to see more recipes for the Instant Pot.

02.27.2017 at8:18 AM #

Carolina Trotter

I’m very intrigued by the instant pot! Always been terrified of pressure cookers…but seeing what this pot can do make me want to get one 🙂

02.27.2017 at8:21 AM #


I’d love to try these recipes if I had an instant pot! It would be a much appreciated addition to help us prepare meals while our kitchen floor is being replaced! I’ve been without a kitchen for a month now and it looks like another month of waiting to get it back!

02.27.2017 at8:27 AM #

Kendall Laidlaw

Funny, when you first hear about something and once you do, then it seems to be everywhere. Last week, I heard about the InstaPot for the first time and now I’ve read and seen videos on it’s wonders. I’m not a big gadget person, so the vote is still out. But, it could be a good gift for my mom who lives alone.

02.27.2017 at9:03 AM #


Can’t wait to do some instant pot cooking! The recipes sound delicious. Thanks for the chance to win.

02.27.2017 at9:10 AM #

02.27.2017 at9:14 AM #

Vi Dang

I like a multi-purpose cookware. I currently own a pressure cooker and a slow cooker and a rice cooker. It would save me so much space counter and encourage me to cook more when I can just have an instant pot on the counter. Thank you for introducing us to it.

02.27.2017 at9:15 AM #


Yum! I’ve used a couple Zen blends in a pressure cooker. Worked great.

02.27.2017 at9:17 AM #


An Instant Pot is on my kitchen want list! The recipes look great to try when I get one!

An Instant Pot would make a HUGE difference for my family. Why should I have to make a choice between a healthy, hearty meal for my family and being able to make that yoga class? With this I won’t have to!

02.27.2017 at10:14 AM #


Oooh! I would love an Instant Pot! Sounds like instant gratification to me!

02.27.2017 at10:50 AM #


I’ve been looking into getting one, but wasn’t sure about the instant pot vs power pressure XL (because there are 8 and 10 qt options and I like leftovers!). But I’ve heard so much about the instant pot, I’m just not sure which one to try!

02.27.2017 at10:52 AM #

I borrowed my neighbors after Christmas and didn’t want to give it back. Makes great bone broth.

02.27.2017 at1:07 PM #


Thanks for the Instant Pot recipes. No need to enter me in the drawing, since I already have an IP that I have been using several times a week since I got it. Makes the best bean soup and I made a whole chicken last night with Chinese five spice, cumin and white pepper after braising the chicken on the sauté mode and then removing it to sauté fennel, garlic and shallots before putting the chicken back in with about 1/2 cup water. So easy and so yummy! Can’t wait to see more of your recipes!

02.27.2017 at7:51 PM #


My jaw literally dropped when I saw your post say “instant pot giveaway” NO WAY!! With 2 boys ages 2.5 and 9 months I’m always looking for better ways and recipes to make healthy delicious meals for my family. We will soon be moving across the U.S. (Texas to Upper michigan) to move back to my home town to have my boys be closer to my family and while searching for a house to buy we will he saying with my dad… an instant pot would be amazing to help get dinner on the table for all 7 of us!!

I hadn’t heard of an Instapot until this weekend when I was with a friend who is doing the Whole 30 regimen. I’m so curious about it. I have a traditional pressure cooker, but this seems to be even better….I’d love to win it. I learned of your page through Sally of Real Mom Nutrition.

With a 2-year-old and #2 coming in August, an Instant Pot would sure help us get good, healthy food on the table quickly!

I’d love to try my hand at the Insta Pot. I’m curious if meats dry out in the Insta Pot like they tend to do in the slow cooker. Or is the cooking time just too darn fast? Thanks 🙂

I’ve been wanting to try an Instant Pot for months! I’m such a lazy chef that I need all the help I can get! My friend made cheesecakes in hers, so I HAVE to try that!

Hi, Katie! Love this post. I’ve never used a pressure cooker but I’m considering getting an Instant Pot. However, most of the recipes I’ve seen are meat- and poultry-based. I mostly cook plant-based (dairy is welcome!) and fish-based recipes. Have you found that the Instant Pot is good/worth it for plant-based and fish-based recipes? If so, any favorite blogs/cookbooks to check out for recipes? Thanks!

Hi Rima, I think it’s great for beans and legumes. I have not cooked fish in it. Generally, fish is quick cooking, so it probably makes less sense for that. That said, I’ve read that folks are steaming frozen salmon in the Instant Pot. That’s sort of interesting to me. On my ‘to do’ list is to develop more plant-based recipes…chilis, vegetarian curries, etc. I am still exploring myself, and have not hit on a favorite resource. There are a couple of Instant Pot FB groups where there is lot of idea sharing.
