Easy Instant Pot Recipes by Alice Engelbrink
You’ll be amazed by all the things your instant pot can
Pulled Pork Barbecue
Perfect for one of Alice’s quick lunches or a messy but delicious dinner, use the instant pot to slow-cook or pressure-cook barbecue pork. Simply drop in the pork tenderloin, mix in your favorite sauces, and set it to cook according to your timeline. Alice prefers classic East Texas style with a sweet, ketchup-based sauce and some smoky Hickory wood flavor, but you can take it anywhere you want.
Once you’ve picked your sauces, all you have to do is wait for it to cook and come back when it’s done. Pressure-cooking one pound of meat, which will leave it nice and moist, should take about 50 minutes at high pressure. Then take it out and watch that mouth-watering barbecue come apart easily with a fork. Use buns, add toppings like cole
Classic Shepherd’s Pie
One of our favorites of Alice Engelbrink’s fast weeknight dinners is the traditional shepherd’s pie. It’s a tasty, hearty meal that can please the whole family, and with a multi-functional device like the instant pot, it’s easy and convenient, too. While you could just toss everything together, it’ll be even better if you take it in steps.
For best results, you should sauté the beef and onions first. Then add the vegetables, spices, and broth, and you put the potatoes on top. Cook on high pressure for 15 to 20 minutes, and then take the potatoes out and mash them with butter, cream and garlic salt. For a perfect, elegant looking pie, you can transfer it to a baking pan, add the potatoes on top, and broil in the oven for a few minutes to give it that delicious golden brown look. You’ll have a lovely dinner, and you’ll probably have leftovers to use for one of Alice’s quick lunches the next day!
