The Ultimate Quick and Easy Instant Pot Recipe Round Up

instant pot recipe


I have a major confession to make you guys. I think I am in love…with my Instant Pot pressure cooker. I had been eyeing them for several months before I decided to purchase one. Now that I finally bit the bullet and picked one up I don’t know how I ever lived without it.

I can get meals ready in less than an hour that would have taken all day in my slow cooker. I can make foods much healthier than before because the cooking process used in the Instant Pot cooker keeps the flavor in your food without many extras or add-ons.

Below I have put together a list of my absolute favorite Instant Pot recipes from a variety of bloggers from all over the United States and beyond.

Beef Recipes

I am most impressed when it comes to quick and easy beef recipes in the Instant Pot. I highly recommend trying at least one of the following Instant Pot beef recipes such as the beef stroganoff recipe, the beef stew recipe, or the beef roast recipe that reminds me so much of my grandma’s. Of course, back when she made it there was only the noise stovetop version of the pressure cooker. I always knew something good was coming when I heard the clank, clank of the pressure cooker.

Dessert Recipes

Did you know that you can even make dessert in the Instant Pot pressure cooker? I had no idea that I could make easy dessert recipes, healthy pressure cooker applesauce recipes, and even cheesecake recipes for the Instant Pot. Just like making chicken or beef in the Instant Pot, I am a definite fan of making dessert in it as well.
