5 Surprising Things You Didn’t Know You Could Make In An Instant Potadmin July 14, 2018 0 COMMENTS
A seven-in-one kitchen gadget sounds like it belongs next to the Snuggie in the infomercial hall of fame, but users of the beloved Instant Pot say it delivers. The device, which is essentially an electric pressure cooker, has secured such a rabid fan base it’s hard not to get caught up in the promise of fast, easy one-pot meals.
And while we’ve all heard tales about the amazing stuff you can make in it, we have to admit we were a little skeptical. But it’s true that this is no ordinary slow cooker. Yes, you can make some amazing chilis, casseroles, dips, and sides in it (if you don’t believe it, check out these tasty recipes). But here are some more truly surprising (and delicious!) things you can make in minutes with your Instant Pot:
CORN ON THE COB
Upgrade this quintessential summer starch by not boiling the flavor away. This list of tricks from the Hip Pressure Cooking blog will even show you how to feed a crowd. Pro tip: If your corn cobs are too large to fit comfortably inside your cooker, snap them in half for a better fit.
The Instant Pot does all kinds of beans so well because it cooks them until tender without making them mushy. This refried beans recipe from Allergy Free Alaska shows you how to take your Tex-Mex night up a notch with a creamy, protein-packed side.
