This Risotto.

So good.

Hngggghh.

I added some mushrooms at the start with a pinch of salt for the moisture. Other than that I followed this recipe and it's so good. Best thing I've done with my IP so far.

Been using this at least 2-3 times a week. Makes cooking very simple. Made some beef stew on Monday night. Sauted the beef, onions, and garlic together, seasoned the meat a bit, poured in beef broth, carrots, tomato paste, can of peas, and some carrots and let it pressure cook for 40 minutes. Meat was very soft, full of flavor, and plenty of leftovers.

Put some pinto beans and smoked pork shanks in last night. 3 cups of beans, 6-8 cups of water, and 3 smoked pork shanks (4th one chopped and mixed in). 45 mins later and the beans were cooked through with a good balance of salty smoke flavor to them.

Best spaghetti ever.

1 lb ground beef (browned)
1/2 lb spaghetti noodle (break in half)
23 oz Sauce
23 Oz water (fill up the sauce you just emptied)

Set to 4 minutes
(no straining needed)


Also, for all the lil nasties out there
2 boxes craft mac and cheese
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 butter stick *(misremembered the amount)

Set to 3 minutes

Also easier ways to make, Vigo Spanish Yellow Rice (4 min), Beef Stroganoff Hamburger Helper (6 min), other boxed food, etc.

Usually, cut the liquid in half and cut the time in half.

If you like pho (Vietnamese noodles), it seems you can make the broth in the instant pot, too.

I tried out this recipe a while back with a few modifications, and it tasted great.

http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...ga-recipe.html

Main differences in what I did:
- Add salt. The recipe doesn't say anything about salt anywhere, but you need to add some or else it tastes like something is missing. I added about 2-3 teaspoons.
- Either chicken or beef work as the meat portion of the broth. Preferably a beef part that has lots of cartilage, like the knuckle. Some beef pho recipes ask for ox tail, but I was way too cheap to use that.
- I boiled some sliced beef into the broth at the end of the recipe (after straining out the spices and bones). Seemed to help.

Slow cooker is still better when serving out of it at parties, but anything actually cooking related is redundant.

This is true, though if you don't have that use then I'd toss it. Instant Pot has a slow cooker mode as well that can be used if you still want to do that all day cooking method.

Made potatoe salad.

Bunch of potatoes and eggs for 6 minutes on high (took quite a while to heat up mind you). Potatoes came out perfect, eggs were cooked. Added some vegetables, olive oil, seasoning and Bockwurst. Super delicious, super easy.

Basically this without all the terrible stuff.

Basically trivializes any recipe with its "set it and forget it" style cooking. Significantly reduces the time spent on typical slow cooker recipes. I had never made a pot roast before in my life and the first time I tried it with this device, it was easily the best I had ever had.

There's so many recipes on youtube for pressure cooked ribs.

This one is a good guide: https://youtu.be/LYxQSt58zmA

He used apple cider and apple vinegar for the liquid, I used beef broth.

I took the ribs, removed the membrane. Added a little bit of salt to the ribs.

Sliced my rack of ribs into thirds so it could fit into the pressure cooker easily.

4 cups of beef broth. (Kroger's had cans that were $0.50 each for 2 cups)

Cooked on high pressure for 32 minutes. (I've seen lots of youtubers put anywhere from 25-35 minutes, so I chose 32 just because)

After it's done in the pressure cooker, apply whatever bbq sauce. I used a mustard based bbq sauce from Kroger's for $1.19 (mustard based sauces have much less sugar than standard bbq sauce and still taste good to me).

With the bbq sauce applied, I put it in a preheated oven set at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, I put on the broiler setting for another 2 minutes. This gives the ribs a nice browning/crispy layer like it came off the grill. Note the ribs are already cooked after the pressure cooker, the oven is to change the texture. Ribs out of the pressure cooker are fall off the bone but aren't the prettiest thing. The oven changes that.

So -
Pressure cooker 32 min
Oven 10 min at 450 degrees.
Broiler setting on oven for another 2-3 min

This works well with both baby back and spare ribs. Baby back are easier to get into the pressure cooker, but spare ribs are so much bigger and have more meat. And when it falls off the bone like that it's amazing.

I should probably try ribs in the instant pot as my first cook, but I really don't like fall off the bone ribs. Also you cannot beat properly smoked ribs, but in 30 mins, I'll take it.

If you don't like it fall off the bone just do 20-25 min instead of 30+. You still want to finish in the oven though.

The way I do ribs in the IP

1. Remove membrane
2. Put on a dry rub (salt, garlic salt, black pepper, smoked paprika,sugar, onion powder, coriander, allspice)
3. Add trivet to IP
4. Add cup of apple juice and 1/4 cup apple cidar vinegar
5. Instead of cutting ribs up, you can stand the whole rack together on end and kinda make a ring of meat around the pot. This leaves the center empty. (*works with baby backs. Not sure if spare ribs fit this way)
6. If you want some baked potatoes with your ribs, stuff the extra space in the middle with some potatoes (make sure you poke them well with a fork so they don't rupture).
7. Manual 25 minutes
8. 15 minute NPR
9. Finish the ribs in the oven for 5-10 minutes with BBQ sauce

Yeah. Electric pressure cooker (much safer than conventional) with a lot of preset cooking settings - rice, yogurt, saute, slow cook, steam, poultry, etc

That's almost identical to my method and they turn out great every time. HiFive!

It's too convenient to not use the pressure cooker. Plus I can usually get ribs for pretty cheap from Krogers.

Trying short rib ragu over parpadelle pasta today. Instead of short rib I have some inexpensive chuck from the freezer that I will cook first til soft then cook again with some chopped veggies and sauce from a jar. I know I can just throw the pasta in with the sauce but I don't like how that looks. I'd rather cook the pasta on the stove and pour the ragu on top before serving.

Whatever the meat setting was, just subtract about 5 mins from that.

Pork ribs need far less time than beef ribs.

I used this recipe, and they turned out perfectly.

Instructions say "Close lid and pressure cook at High Pressure for 16 25 minutes. Adjust the timing according to your preference: 16 minutes (Tender with a bit of chew) to 25 minutes (Fall off the bone)." I did 18 minutes, and they had the perfect amount of texture.
