Saw reference to instant Pot in another thread and would love to get some good recipes for the Christmas present my wife and I got from Santa. Seems like it's quite the craze, so thought others might be trying it out and coming up with some good meals. I've used it twice now and have really enjoyed using it. I will be using it again tonight to make chili. I made a beef stew last week that blew my socks off. I'm not a stew guy either. This recipe is more brothy than thick gravy, which I prefer. It also didn't have potatoes in it, which I really liked. I served it over rice.

*Full disclosure, I don't measure, so these are guesses on measurements)

2 lb chuck roast (trim fat and cube) - brown on saute in the instant pot (salt and pepper and used butter)
remove the meat when you get a good sear.
Keep the pot on saute and add liquid and scrape up the bits on the pot
1 cub beef broth
1/2 cup or so of red wine
1/2 cup or so of tomato juice
turn off instant pot and add the following
6 carrots chopped in large chunks
3 stalks of celery cut in large chunks
1 medium yellow onion diced
Salt and pepper
Add the meat and stir and click the "stew" button
Once done, turn off and let the pressure release naturally (10 min or so).

The recipe, I was loosely going off of, called for tapioca (put in during the cook) to thicken it. Instead, when it was done cooking, I added 1/3 cup of water with a tablespoon of corn starch mixed in it. It thickened it up just enough for me.

As I stated, I'm not a stew person, but this was so tender and flavorful. The carrots were maybe a little too mushy, but the meat was so perfect, I was ok with that. Maybe bigger chunks would help. I ate it for dinner the first night and lunch and dinner the following night!

We've done stuffed peppers, meat loaf, and baby back ribs in the Instant Pot. I would say I was blown away by the peppers and ribs, the meat loaf was not significantly quicker or better than traditional.

Just rubbed the ribs, put them in for 25 minutes, then finished 10 minutes in oven or grill for some texture.

Will have to get peppers recipe from the wife.

Serious Eats is my go-to site right now. Here are a few of the recipes I've had...

http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2017/05/new-orleans-style-red-beans-rice-recipe.html

With the red beans and rice, the recipe is not a pressure cooker recipe, but I cooked them under pressure for 50 minutes, let the pressure come down naturally for about 10 minutes and then released the remaining pressure manually and finally reduced the liquid using the saute feature on high. It was a bit spicy even using the low amount of cayenne pepper. It did taste better the second day.

I also made these...

I've also used it for hard boiled eggs and I made some chicken stock with it. It's an amazing tool to have in the kitchen.

My wife has done pulled pork, chicken soup, and a few other things. Everything has turned out great. I can see why these gizmos are so popular right now.

I saw a video on doing yogurt in there and it looked pretty good. I'll have to give that a try!

Chicken looks really good.

I subscribe to the "Better Done Yourself" Youtube channel for the fermenting stuff, but he also does Instant Pot recipes, too. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... snlPZyf5Go

I just got myself an instant pot, I tried making yogurt last night. Will have to see how well it set up after chilling today. I was looking for a chicken recipe, I may give that one berniebrewer4life posted above.

This is NOT the subject I thought the title was implying. [laughing] However, thank y'all for bringing this to my attention! I've always been leery of pressure cookers, so I usually crock pot things. I'll have to check this out!

I made the honey garlic chicken recipe last night and it turned out great. I pressure cooked the chicken thighs for 18 minutes (I did the sear/sautee thing first but they were frozen when I did that.)

While the chicken cooked I cut up a bunch of vegetables- I happened to have carrots, celery, red onion, pepper, zucchini and some mushrooms. De-pressurized the pot and dumped all that in and pressure cooked it for another 3 minutes, served with rice. We were amazed at how rich and well the whole thing turned out. I didn't have sesame seeds and green onions on hand, and that would have made it better.

As for the yogurt, I tried it this morning and it was fine. However in my mind, for the amount of yogurt I buy versus the effort to make the yogurt I made which I'll have to work hard to use up, I might just keep buying it from the store instead. YMMV
