20+ Almost No Prep Instant Pot Recipes (a Dump & Dash Collection!)

by Robin

I'll admit it. I'm not 100% comfortable using my Instant Pot yet. Are you feeling the same? 

I know how to fit a slow cooker into my planning for the day - that's where my Dump & Dash Slow Cooker Collection comes in so very handy for me.  But I feel some trepidation about this high pressure, steamy device that I'm supposed to love. A part of me is a tiny bit afraid of it.

I haven't quite gotten my head around the Instant Pot's pressure cooking function. But, as usual,  Ed's all in without hesitation.  In fact, he made this amazing Dark Beek Pulled Brisket for a football party and it was an absolute touchdown.  I want so badly to embrace this kitchen timesaving device, too!

But unlike Ed, I need to plan. It's deep within my nature. I need to exhaustively prepare for pretty much anything new.  That's what this list is about: I've done the overpreparing so you don't have to.

Below are more than 20 Instant Pot recipes that are super low prep (similar to my slow cooker list).  Not only is it easier to get supper on the table faster with ultra simple recipes - it's easier to get comfortable with your Instant Pot.  Getting dinner on the table in minutes - that's our goal - and this list should help.

👍 I just ordered this 7-piece Instant Pot accessory set - it gets great reviews. I can't wait to try out the steamer basket, egg moulds and springform pan! This opens up even more fast and easy meal ideas. 

Tonights the night!  I'm choosing one from this list and using that darn pressure cooker!  Which one would you make first?
