I just picked up an Instant Pot on clearance.Does anyone else use one or have tips on pressure cooking?The book is a bit confusing to me, listing pressurized cooking times for meat as per pound, even stew meat.I saw information on line that lists chunks of meat are to be cooked a certain time only, not also by the weight.I hope it's not another useless gadget.I bought it for my son, as he's showing interest in cooking and tired of eating out, but has little time. (Like most of us).thanks in advance,nag
Just found an Instant Pot site with videos, hopefully that will help.nag
Just google things like "instant pot beef stew," "instsnt pot carnitas," "instant pot vegetable soup," etc.Here's a site I like with good recipes for instant pot:https://nomnompaleo.com/post/125878339293/my-top-paleo-press...
I have an instant pot.It's great for (whole) squash - esp spaghetti squash.I use it primarily for chicken - fresh or frozen- not recipes, just suggestions..Chicken, salt/pepper/ 1 chopped onion/potatoes or carrots if desired@ 1/2- 1 cup of sauce -of- choice:teriyaki/soybbqrotelsalsa (of any kind, red, green, garlic, mango...)what-everset manual for about 20 minutes, natural pressure release.Cut or shred.sometimes I add rice & 1-1/2x that quantity of water, usually the rice cooks appropriately.peace & instant potst
Thank you both - alstro and tconiThe website is neat and knowing I can 'wing' it with just food in this contraption is great.I'm sure there's a learning curve.naghappy 2020 - let's hope for a better year
The main thing is it cooks faster because the pressure raises the boiling point of water.
If you've been adding commercial canned/boxed chicken broth to soups/stews/etc, just try making homemade chicken broth in your Instant Pot. You won't want to go back!I tend to throw a chicken carcass--like a roast or rotisserie chicken with not much meat left on the bones, half an onion, couple celery ribs, couple carrots, a garlic clove, a bay leaf, a few peppercorns and a splash of vinegar or lemon juice (supposedly leaches more minerals from the bones) into the IP for 60-120 minutes. If planning to use for Asian dishes, I might add a few slices of ginger root, a star anise seed pod and some coriander seeds.
Homemade chicken broth sounds heavenly.I don't like the boxed stuff at all and it's expensive.nag
I'll be trying this out myself -who knows, maybe my son won't get it after all.nag
Homemade chicken broth sounds heavenly.instantPot broth is nice- just save bones in the freezer, from whatever you cook,along with vegetables that may be questionable :- ) and make broth at your leisure.peace & brotht
