Are you tired of spending hours cooking meat on the stove or in the oven? Do you want to save time and effort, while still enjoying a delicious and tender meal? Look no further than your Instant Pot! This versatile appliance is perfect for cooking all kinds of meat, from chicken to beef to pork. Here's how to cook meat in an Instant Pot:
Step 1: Choose your cut of meat
First, decide what kind of meat you want to cook. Different cuts require different cooking times and methods. For example, chicken breasts can be cooked in as little as 8 minutes on high pressure, while a pot roast may take up to 90 minutes.
Step 2: Prepare the meat
Season your meat with salt and pepper or any other desired seasoning. If desired, sear the meat on all sides using the sauté function on your Instant Pot. This will add flavor and create a nice crust.
Step 3: Add liquid
Add liquid such as broth or water into the pot, making sure it covers about one-third of the way up the meat.
Step 4: Select cooking time
Select manual/pressure cook mode according to your recipe’s requirement & set timer accordingly based on type & quantity of Meat
Step 5: Natural Pressure Release (NPR) Vs Quick Pressure Release (QPR)
Once done with set time release pressure naturally for some food items like Beef Brisket & Pork Shoulder etc., else release pressure quickly by turning valve from sealing position to venting position
Step 6: Check doneness
Use an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of Meat after opening lid post NPR/QPR release method
Using these simple steps, you can easily cook any type of meat in your Instant Pot. Not only is it quick and easy, but it also results in perfectly cooked and tender dishes every time!
