Dinner in an Instant: 75 Modern Recipes for Your Pressure Cooker, Multicooker, and Instant Pot® Reviews
From the title I was expecting fast and easy recipes for the Instant pot, this is not that. Most of the recipes have quite a few steps (put this in to brown, take it out, put the next ingredient in and brown in then take it out...) and LONG lists of ingredients. I did find a handful of recipes I hope to try, when I have time to dedicate to the cooking process.
I thought "the incident" had banished pressure cookers from my life forever, yet even I succumbed to Instant Pot fever in October, lured by promises of safety features that would certainly prevent chicken and dumplings from exploding in the kitchen when a seventh grader is at home alone. (Just to pull a hypothetical situation out of nowhere.)
I really like my Instant Pot - I give it credit for the best chicken curry I've ever made. I also really like the guidance Melissa Clark gives for using an ...more
I just purchased this book and devoured it in one sitting. It is going to completely change my instant pot use. I have been completely underutilized my pot. This book is very well put together and I am excited to try many of the recipes and adapt many more.
Thanks Melissa Clark
I picked up this book for two purposes: to find a few more time-saving dinner recipes, and to learn a bit more about my Instant Pot. I didn't find the former. Most recipes called for at least a dozen ingredients, and there were very few "weeknight" meals. I was pleased to see so many recipes designated as gluten-free or vegetarian, and her explanations for making yogurt, eggs and braised meats were informative. And she included several modifications for slow-cooking rather than pressure cooking, ...more
I knew this book featured recipes for the Instant Pot before I read it but many were adaptations of things that I already make without an Instant Pot. Only a few interested me to possibly try. I expected it to be Great because of the author's reputation so maybe that was my problem: I expected too much? The book is exactly what it says it will be: 75 modern recipes for your pressure cooker Instant Pot.
I recently accidentally bought myself a present (hate it when that happens) and even though I was a little afraid of the Instant Pot initially, I have forged ahead with modern pressure cooking. This cookbook is a great resource and I wanted to try just about every recipe in this book. For those unfamiliar, an Instant Pot can sear, slow cook, pressure cook, make rice and yogurt (no, not all at the same time). I intend to try each feature because if I'm going to buy myself a present, I really shou ...more
This was okay, but I mostly skimmed the second half after I realized most of the recipes were either more involved or used ingredients a little too exotic for my grocery budget. The stuff I made was good, but at this stage of my life, I'm more at the quick, cheap, and easy stage of meal preparation.
Would have liked to find more quick week night type meals.
