A few months back the Instant Pot came into my life.
I’d heard great things about the Instant Pot from Wardee at Traditional Cooking School through her Pressure Cooking eCourse (that’s an affiliate link and other affiliate links may follow, read more about these links here) but wasn’t sure how well it would work in my off-grid kitchen.
The verdict after using the Instant Pot for about 6 months….
Our solar system is large enough to accommodate using it on sunshine days and it has been such a blessing!
I love that I can take a frozen roast and have a fully cooked and delicious piece of meat in around an hour and a half.
I love that we can still enjoy baked goods even though we don’t have an oven and not every day is suitable for using my Sun Oven.
I love that I can batch cook veggies and meats on a sunshine day and have the basis for meals for several days.
I love that a tough piece of meat becomes moist and amazing when cooked under pressure.
My Instant Pot is so amazing even my husband sings it’s praises to our friends and family. 😉
There are many recipes available online for the Instant Pot. And with the manual you can easily make things without a recipe by just using the info given on the pre-programmed times.
One of my favorite things to do is cook an assortment of veggies all at one time to use for soups or other dishes. I’ll put in the trivet included with the Instant Pot and then add carrots, onions, celery, acorn squash and maybe a couple of regular or sweet potatoes along with a cup and a half (or so) of water. Pressure cook on low manual for about 13 minutes and the veggies are wonderfully soft. This stash of veggies is especially wonderful to use for a blended soup.
