10 Best Instant Pot Recipes (with Meat)

What is an Instant Pot?

Before we get into the most popular Instant Pot recipes, we should probably explain exactly what an Instant Pot is.

According to the their website, The Instant Pot is seven different appliances or kitchen tools, all in one. It can do the job of:

  • a slow cooker
  • an electric pressure cooker
  • a rice cooker
  • a steamer
  • a yogurt maker
  • a sauté/browning pan
  • a warming pot

So the Instant Pot can do a lot of different things, but what if you own all of those devices already?

Well, an Instant Pot can cook you an epic meal in a matter of minutes. That’s something that most of these appliances cannot do.
