100 Asian Instant Pot Recipes You'll Wish You Tried Sooner (2024)


Why do instant pot recipes say do not stir? ›

As explained by Kitchn, stirring the pasta with the liquid before locking the appliance and setting it to pressure cook will cause the dish to go sticky and gummy as it cooks, due to the way pasta releases starch under pressure.

What foods should not be cooked in an Instant Pot? ›

In fact, there are a handful of foods that just shouldn't be pressure-cooked. Among them are dairy and fried foods, as well as burgers and steaks.

What does PO mean on Instant Pot? ›

If it shows on the front panel PO15 it means pressure on(PO) for (15 )minutes then it will count down.

Do chefs use Instapots? ›

They are most commonly used in industrial settings to quickly prepare meat or stocks. However, in most scenarios, Elite Chefs avoid using pressure cookers because they provide less control over the final dish. Chefs often prefer slow cooking techniques that accentuate and pull out the flavors of the food.

Do I need to stir food in Instant Pot? ›

Follow your recipe for liquid levels. Submerge pasta if possible, but do not stir. Use the steam rack to lift foods out of the cooking liquid. This will ensure even heat distribution, prevent nutrients from leeching into the cooking liquid, and stop burning on the bottom of the inner pot.

Do you stir when slow cooking? ›

Due to the nature of a slow cooker, there is no need to stir the food unless it specifically says to in your recipe. In fact, taking the lid off to stir food causes the slow cooker to lose a significant amount of heat, extending the cooking time required. Therefore, it is best not to remove the lid for stirring.

What happens if you cook too long in Instant Pot? ›

Unfortunately, once you overcook a piece of meat in the pressure cooker, there's no going back. You'll be left with a pile of dry, crunchy, tasteless fibers and no amount of additional pressure cooking is going to put that moisture back into the meat. Earlier, I explained how ingredient size affects the cooking time.

Why is meat not tender in Instant Pot? ›

The moist heat in a pressure cooker tends to turn connective tissue into gelatin. You need to let the meat cool down for a few minutes after cooking, to give time for moisture to be reabsorbed, before releasing the pressure. Otherwise, the meat will likely be tough.
