While we're sure you're very familiar with the Instant Pot's ability to revolutionize weeknight meals and perfect steel-cut oats, you'll be happy to learn that everyone's favorite kitchen gadget still has a few more tricks up its shiny stainless-steel sleeve. So if you're scratching your head at what to make next, keep that pressure cooker love alive with these brilliant Instant Pot hacks.
① Hard-Boiled Eggs
If Alton Brown says steaming is the best way to hard-boil eggs, then you better bet we'll be steaming them by the dozen. Place the eggs on the rack, add a few inches of water to your pot and all that sunny-yolked, easy-to-peel goodness will soon be ready for your weekly lunch bags.
② Speedy Dried Beans
Fact: Rehydrated beans taste better than canned beans. Also fact: We're still too lazy to soak those dried beans. Thankfully, your pressure cooker can churn out a bag of dried (and unsoaked!) legumes within an hour. So you can stop settling for those gloopy pinto beans already.
③ Dulce de Leche
④ Velvety Cheesecakes
Not all desserts are suited for pressure cooking, but cheesecakes make for perfect Instant Pot fodder since they thrive in a steamy cooking environment. And now you don't have to wait hours before you can indulge: The speedy countertop cooker can whip up your favorite rich dessert in under 30 minutes flat.
So @jamiemba made this in an #instapot. For some reason I associate 'instapots' to 'nettie pots'. ��� They are not the same thing, not even close. Why am I so weird. � (Jamie's recipe is actually delicious and has nothing to do with noses.) � http://www.mybakingaddiction.com/instant-pot-oreo-cheesecake/
⑤ Fresh-Baked Breads
With the help of a heatproof container—an old coffee can works great—and your favorite quick-bread recipe, you'll be munching on soft, fluffy, homemade slices in less time it takes to wait for a second rise.
Going old school with the pressure cooker bread experiments with a Steamed Brown Bread recipe straight from the pages of 'Out of Old Nova Scotia Kitchens.' Will have to wait for tomorrow to make the traditional baked beans accompaniment. #oldschoolcooking #cookbooks #pressurecooking #bread #underpressure #yachtkate #galley
