10 Best Instant Pot and Pressure Cooker Recipes of 2016

Thanks to all my wonderful Readers. Last year was full of yummy recipes and I appreciate all your feedback and support. You all keep asking me, which are the top Pressure Cooker recipes on the blog. I’ve read your reviews, listened to the feedback and crunched the numbers.

Instant Pot is the #1 best selling Pressure Cooker on Amazon.It is nothing like the old Stove Top Pressure Cookers. The Instant Potis safe and easy to use. Instant Pot has safety features built in. You cannot open the Instant Pot, unless all pressure has been released!

10 Easy Instant Pot Recipes for New Owners

If you are on the fence about getting your first Pressure Cooker, check out my poston Easy Instant Pot Recipes for Brand New Ownersand let your fears fall away. These recipes work in all brands of Electric Pressure Cookers. Think of it this way. A recipe for a GE Oven will work in an LG Oven, right? Same thing with pressure cooking. AnyPressure Cooker Recipe can be made in any brand of Electric Pressure Cooker.

FUN FACT – and in keeping with the oven analogy, if ever your food is not cooked enough after Pressure Cooking, just put it back into the Pressure Cookerand cook it some more,using 1-5 minute increments. It is never a problem to use your Pressure Cookerimmediately after releasing pressure!

Here is the Count Down to the Top Ten Recipes of 2016.

Coming in at Number 10, this Authentic Chinese Take-Out Beef and Broccoli is easy on your wallet.
