Miller Girl: Instant Pot

Hello Miller Girl and anyone who has an Instant Pot.

I noticed that you cooked your corn beef in Instant Pot.
Can you tell me how you like the pot? I have 4 pressure cookers
of different sizes and use them often. However this particular pot
looks like it cuts down on the work load quite a bit in different ways.
You can actually do yogurt in it. It cannot however do canning as the
psi is too low. You need 15 and this is only 11-or twelve and I
wouldn't risk it. But otherwise it looks like a real winner, saving
7 different types of cooking pots. How do you like it.
Really appreciate your input.

thanks

Hi Barbo! My first ever LCF shout-out thread~

I love, love, love my InstantPot. My corned beef turned out awesome. I have also pressure cooked 5 lbs of potatoes for mashed potatoes in twenty minutes, and then the peels slide right off. SO much easier than peel and boil. I have steamed lots of veggies quickly and efficiently. I have also made a couple of soups in it that I really liked. I have also used the slow cooker feature instead of the pressure. Oh, and I used the pressure cooker setting to cook a chuck roast I forgot to thaw, and it was ready in two hours.

I haven't tried the rice or yogurt settings yet, but I am on a great FB page where folks rave about both.

I am incredibly pleased with it, and would recommend it to anyone! I can't compare it to other PCs, because this is the first one I have had.

I hope that helps!

I have one and all it has done is sit on the counter. I have never used a pressure cooker and just don't know where to start. I need to find that Facebook page.

You are to be praised

Thanks so much for answering quickly
My pot is ordered and I should received it in 3-4 days.

I'll catch up with you after I use it a few times.
Am used to pressure cooking but this one looks like a step
saver which I need. Happy cooking. I cannot wait to make
some high fat yogurt in it.

One Pot

It's Jay's b. day Tuesday and all sorts of other things going on.
We decided to do the pot roast first as it's supposed to be
all in the bath tub at the same time.

Everyone with this pot please post about your recipes.

I posted a recipe up top. I didn't go far enough on this thread to find you.
I've cooked this much thus far
:
1 pot roast which I overcooked (learning) it was delish
and the sauté function is fab.

Basmati rice. A little wet but delish. I shall add less water and more time.
Steamed veggies. worked great
Soup, I made the above thread Butternut Curry Soup (gasp it was so good)
Soaking pintos tonight will talk about tomorrow.
Now that I'm not scared silly I shall make some full fat yogurt.
Oh boy I am so counting on the yogurt.
I've loved this pot. It's so easy.

BTW. It is silent, the smells of the food stay in the pot until you open it.
Having quick release of pressure is fantastic. The pot lid can stand up
on it's own in a slot.

INSTANT POT YOGURT

It was fabulous and so easy. I put it on last night before bed and
this morning I had 4 little cups of smooth, creamy and not sour
yogurt. Now I am truly in love. I need to give my Instant Pot a
name.

If you are interested I FOLLOWED THE RECIPE ONLINE FROM Instant Pot.
What I tweaked was the milk. I used 3 CUPS Lactose Free high fat 2%
milk and 1 c. of cream. My starter is 1 heaping tsp.
of Fage 2% fat yogurt into each cup of milk. Put them on steamer
rack and pressed yogurt and went to bed.

Thus far I made 25 minute perfectly cooked Pinto Beans and Ham
(beans were soaked overnight)
Brown Basmati rice
Roast beef with potatoes and carrot, celery all cooked together
The Sauté feature is very good.
Chicken Stock, very rich and gelatinous
Curry Soup
Steamed vegetables
Yogurt

How about Wonder Pot? Wonder what to try next?
I hear that you can layer three different things in the cooker.
More to be revealed.

BonBon,
I have made some mistakes on buying kitchen toys.
Some I regret like that Wolfgang Puck pie maker and other things.
This Instant Pot is not a mistake. I love it. Gotta go and see what
to make next.

Miller Girl

Let's keep the Instant Pot recipes thread going.

I want to make menudo. Have to find some quality tripe.
We have some Mexican markets here and I'm going
to look. I also make a good posole with pork. I think
Char does as well. It would make the meat very tender
and very fast. Menudo takes hours in regular cooking pot.

Barbo, I am all in on keeping this one going... I would completely agree. I have purchased some ridiculous kitchen gadgets. I got that omelette maker thing off of an infomercial- the Express 101? I didn't hear the end of that one for a couple years. My IP is not like that at all! I love it.

We have been busy, busy, busy with baseball season, and the last couple of weeks we have eaten out waaaaay too often. I will set a goal to have two meals in my IP next week!

Ha,
I am still hearing about my 'mistakes' lol
One big one is my expensive bread machine. Oh I love it, but you know
how we are about making bread so it's up very high so I can't get to it.

I had to search for this thread because I bought one yesterday. It gets here tomorrow.

Would love to see more recipes. Thanks

Just an FYI for those who own them - there is a recall on one model (the SMART, bluetooth enabled one) on any purchased before June 1, 2015. Details are on their website.

How would this do for pressure canning? I am thinking about getting a pressure cooker but also want it to be able to double-duty and be able to can. If possible what size/number of jars might fit.

Predominantly Paleo blog just did a recipe round up for Instant Pot. Not all the recipes are low carb, but the ones that aren't could be adapted. Might be worth a look. There is a hard boiled egg recipe on the list.

This is from a question posed on Amazon and answered by the company that sells Instant Pot:

" Can the Instant Pot be used for canning? Jan 5, 2014
There are two types of canning: boiling-water canning at 100°C/212°F (for acid fruits, tomatoes, pickles and jellied products) and pressure canning at 115~121°C/240~250°F (for low acid vegetables, meat and poultry). Please refer to "USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning" for more details. Instant Pot can be used for boiling-water canning. However, Instant Pot has not been tested for food safety in pressure canning by USDA. Due to the fact that programs in Instant Pot IP-CSG, IP-LUX and IP-DUO series are regulated by a pressure sensor instead of a thermometer, the elevation of your location may affect the actual cooking temperature. For now, we wouldn't recommend using Instant Pot for pressure canning purpose. Please note this correction to our early inaccurate information."

Please don't EVER use anything to pressure can that isn't made specifically for it - or you risk poisoning yourself and your loved ones! You need a pressure canner with a gauge on it or other means of keeping the pressure in the safe canning range.

You CAN use a pressure canner to pressure cook foods but please don't use a pressure cooker to pressure can items!
