A couple of months ago I tried a new tool that really revolutionized my meal planning, prep and cooling. I have tried lot of things – but this has made the difference – Instant Pot! I have the version that is both a pressure cooker, a crock pot, yogurt maker – and so much more!
New Kitchen Tool
With my kids home this summer, they wan to eat all the time! Not small snacks, but substantial meals all day long. So I started making lots of shredded chicken at the beginning of the week – so they could make tacos, burritos, wraps, spring rolls – themselves. And in the pressure cooker – it takes maybe 15 minutes (after it comes up to pressure, though you don’t have to do anything while it does). And I would make beans – 9-10 minutes in the pressure cooker and some rice (which I did separately). Other days I made pulled pork – ~20 minutes – amazing!
I started collecting Pressure Cooker recipes and am adding them to my Evernote collection. It has also changed my meal planning and prep for the week. I can have the pressure cooking on while I’m working on my business – as it will go off to the warming function once it’s done.
I’m looking forward to finding new ways to incorporate it into my meal prep – for the school year. There are many great websites that have recipes specifically for Instant Pot. Some of my favorites are:
Can’t wait to have healthy food prepared for when they come home.
