How to cook meat in the Instant Pot. Since the day I brought the Instant Pot in my house it became my favorite kitchen tool. Not only is it fast, it infuses flavor into everything it cooks! My favorite thing to cook in my Instant Pot is meat; I’ve never been disappointed with my meats being pressured cooked. I’ve included a printable cheat sheet so you when you need to cook meat in the Instant Pot it can be right on your fridge for reference (see link at the bottom of this post).
If you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, I highly recommend one. But you should be able to use these cooking meat tips with most electric pressure cookers. I cook so much more than meat in mine and I’ll be sure to write up more references in the near future. I make the best cooked carrots, mashed potatoes and beans of all sorts in my Instant Pot. I’ve yet to be disappointed with anything, well except the first time I made rice in it; but that rice failure was more of user error than anything.
Right now, we are in the middle of another hot summer in Phoenix. I love that I can make a great pressure cooked dinner without heating the house up too.
Be sure to check out the recipes I’ve included under each meat section.
