Whether Chinese takeout or Mongolian beef is your idea of comfort food or if you have a craving for some soy sauce cooked chicken, the following pressure cooker recipes will help you get your favorites on the table in 30 minutes or less!
Can you cook two things at once in the Instant Pot?
Yes! Absolutely yes. The easiest way is to make it a one-pot meal or casserole – meaning everything is mixed together.
However, if you want separate dishes, like meat with a white rice side, you just need to invest in a little trivet or stand for your Instant Pot pressure cooker.
Can you cook frozen Chinese food in an instant pot?
Absolutely! The best part? It is super easy because you do not need to make any adjustments to the cook time instructions based on whether the foods are frozen or not.
For example, if your gluten-free orange chicken and bell peppers recipe says to cook for thirty minutes on high pressure with a natural release of five minutes, you do exactly that!
Because, the beauty of the instant pot is that because the food is frozen, it will take the pressure cooker longer to get to the high pressure. Effectively cooking the frozen food a bit longer with no extra work (and no math!) from you.
