Free Printable Instant Pot Cheat Sheet

    Posted by  ·  January 4, 2018

    The instant pot pressure cooker has truly been life changing at our home. It has helped to make getting healthy meals on our table. We use our pressure cooker at least four to five times a week. If it isn’t making a main course it is helping out with rice, pasta, grains, veggies and even boiled eggs.

    I am constantly referring to my instruction book and thought it would be super handy to have a cheat sheet to hang inside my cabinet. These are a few of the items I make regularly in my pressure cooker. I hope you will find these cooking times super helpful.

    Instant Pot Cooking Times

    These times are just a guideline. As with everything you might need to adjust for your specific pressure cooker.  For instance, when I am in a rush I add two minutes to the boiled egg cooking time (7 minutes), skip the 5 minute natural release and do a quick release and then quick water bath.  For sure, the five minute cook time, five minute natural release and five minute ice bath will produce the best eggs with shells that slide off but this works great too and saves a bit of time.  Changing these cooking times to meet your needs is okay!

    I have been using the Instant Pot now regularly for two years.  I hope you will try some of our family favorite instant pot recipes. Please share in the comments some of your favorite pressure cooker recipes for us to try.

    Here are a few of our faves! Don’t overlook dessert!  This pressure cooker cheesecake is AMAZING.

    If don’t have a pressure cooker yet this is the one I purchased on Amazon. (affiliate link)

      These egg bites are so good, I could eat them every day.

      • 8 large eggs
      • 1 cup Ricotta cheese
      • 1 big hand full of baby spinach ( chiffonade like basil)
      • 10 slices precooked bacon diced
      • 2 sliced green onions
      • 2 ½ cups sharp cheddar cheese
      • ¼ cup half and half or milk
      • Salt and pepper to taste
      • 1 cup water
      Combine eggs, ricotta and half and half. Beat well. Salt and pepper. Add cheese, bacon, onions and spinach. Scoop into instant pot egg mold (I use an ice cream scoop) or baby food jars. Pour water into pot, Place trivet into pot. I like to use half of my hard boiled egg stackable trivet.

      Is an Instant Pot the same as a crock pot? Thank you
      • Cindy
        Saturday, January 20th, 2018
        No they are different. Some instant pots allow you to turn it a crock pot setting.

      Is there a minutes per pound of meat ratio that should be used?

        Jim, let me think on this. I don't really think I pay attention to it unless it is a large roast. I might add 10 mins.

      I have a Power Cooker XL, it's like a bigger instant pot (10 quarts). Do you think these recipes will work for it as well?
      • Cindy
        Saturday, January 6th, 2018
        Ashlee, I bet the Power Cooker XL came with an instruction booklet with times. Compare those times with this sheet. If it is close I think you are good.

      What is an instant pot
      • Cindy
        Thursday, January 4th, 2018
        Pat,
        An Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker. For years I stayed away from pressure cookers because I found them quite scary. The electric pressure cooker is really easy to use and safe! I got this one on Amazon.
    25. Thursday, January 4th, 2018
      Thank you for this. I don't have an instant pot yet but I'm hoping to get one soon.

        Would these work with most electric pressure cookers? I have a cooks essential, standard PSI is 15.

        Melis, look at your instruction booklet and compare the times. If they are about the same I think you can use this sheet as a guide.
