One item being raved about this past holiday season has made its way to my kitchen. I’m excited to tell you about the Instapot! What’s mainly advertised as a pressure cooker, is really a jack-of-all-trades.
The Instapot is a great tool for quick, after-work meals. Not only can you throw frozen meat into it, but the meat cooks tender, juicy, and quickly. Here are the average cook times for popular meat options.
Of all the features offered with the Instapot, my personal favorite is the pressure cooker. Meals that could take up to 12 hours, like chicken bone broth, will only take two with the Instapot. I’ve experimented with some new recipes and they came out terrific. Join me in trying these new Instapot recipes: Pork Chops with Port Wine Glazed Cherries & Risotto and Tender-Tasty Beef Brisket.
This is a simple yet flavorful and tender pork dish. The risotto was made with a cast iron pan, but it is feasible to cook in the Instapot. Estimate 25 minutes for cook time.
First, cover the brisket in a seasoning blend (Chuck’s Pork and Beef Seasoning is a recipe that I like to use). Once the brisket is covered in rub, you can leave it covered in the fridge overnight.
