Instant Pot January Recipes

In September, I wrote 10 reasons I’m not buying Instant Pot. Black Friday – I bought it.

5 Reasons I Got Instant Pot

1. I needed new slow cooker and a stock pot anyways.

2. I knew $99 for an 8 quart Instant Pot was VERY good deal.

3. I listened to your feedback.

4. I was intrigued.

5. I wanted to save time.

At the end of January, I will be summarizing everything I learnt about Instant Pot. Trust me, it’s a bit of a learning curve but very doable. If you have any questions right now though, check out FAQ below or ask in a comment.


Are your Instant Pot recipes healthy?

Absolutely. As healthy as they can be. Let’s be nice to each other and remember that everyone has their own understanding of “healthy”. #its2018

Is Instant Pot January family friendly?

Totally. I tested the heck out of Instant Pot during December and coming your way are our absolute healthy and delicious favourites – approved by 5 kids and 4 adults during family holidays. #kidseatrealfood

I assume some of you bought Instant Pot on Black Friday or got one for Christmas. Many of you already have one. I have 8 Quart Instant Pot (Model IP-DUO80). #itsbig

I will include 2 recipes each time: for 6 Qt and 8 Qt models. I recommend to buy 8 quart only if you feed 5+ people, love leftovers or cook a lot of soups. Otherwise, 6 quart Instant Pot will suffice. #trustme

All main meals that are warm and comforting (#janury), and that make sense to be made in Instant Pot. At the end of the day, it’s about saving time. #instantpoteggs

  1. So glad you are doing Instant Pot recipes! My main issue with my Instant Pot is how much liquid to put in when I’m trying to convert a traditional recipe to Instant Pot. Many times I end up putting too much liquid in and then it won’t come to pressure and cook properly. Very frustrating. Definitely a learning curve to this appliance.

    1. Hi Carrie. I recommend reading this article about max levels. You should have no issues with pressure afterwards. This appliance is mathematical haha. I found regular recipes need some adaptation because during pressure cooking many ingredients get overcooked and flavours intensified. So, really a mathematical approach by trying what works. I hear you. Well, you will enjoy this month’s recipes then.
