I purchased my 1st Instant Pot last year. I've had some really epic crockpot fails that ended with a flavorless and mushy meal. I was nervous to try the electric pressure cooker. Well, time and again it has proven to be a winner. Even a simple meal of spaghetti is made so much better by this baby! It's like the flavor infuses into every part of the dish and plain pasta with marinara has never tasted so good! I always considered pasta to be a very simple meal but now I don't even have to wait for water to boil and keep on eye on it or even stir.
I wanted to share with you some recipes I've been collecting.
If you look in the description and comments of each "pin" I will share my notes for each. For now I will leave you with my top 3 and also, one I can't wait to try!
Top 3 - Put these into your menu this week!
Balsamic Shredded Beef - A classic!
30 Minutes Beef Chili - It tastes like it's been simmering away all day!
Tomato Basil Soup - Can I get an amen! Add an extra splash of half and half while no ones looking. ;)
I can't wait to try this! *There are so many fun IP "tricks". This is one of the popular ones. Cooking your potatoes and hard cooked eggs at the same time!

Pressure cookers have been around forever. This is not a fad! Our grandmothers knew how amazing these things are. They did have drawbacks and could be messy/dangerous. Now with this amazing electric model they are very safe and take the guess work out of measuring the pressure gauge. The Instant Pot has lots of great settings to help you out. It also comes with a cookbook and another guide with charts of cooking times.
Alright, it's a crisp day here in the Pacific Northwest and I'm off to throw some chili into mine!
Spaghetti squash made easy - Place the whole squash on top of the trivet. Add 1 C of water. Cook on high pressure (HP) for 20 minutes. Quick release (QR) the pressure and remove. Now just peel the shell away! So easy and no hacking thru a tough squash!
