💭 Tips For Great Instant Pot Recipes To Make In The Fall
An Instant Pot or pressure cook is an incredibly versatile kitchen tool that can make tons of recipes in a snap! Here are some extra tips!
- Seasonal Ingredients: Look for recipes that incorporate fall ingredients. Use things like pumpkins, squashes, apples, pears, sweet potatoes, and root vegetables.
- Soups and Stews: Fall is known for warm, hearty soups and stews. The Instant Pot can easily break down meats in a fraction of the time it would take on the stove.
- Slow-Cooked Dishes: Consider recipes that typically require long, slow cooking. Your pressure cooker can considerably shorten the cooking time for dishes like pot roast or pulled pork, while still delivering that slow-cooked taste and tenderness.
- One-Pot Meals: Seek out recipes that allow you to cook everything in one pot for convenience.
- Adapt Favorites: You don't have to stick to Instant Pot-specific recipes. If you have a beloved fall recipe, see if you can adapt it for your pressure cooker.
- Sides: Don’t forget about the accompaniments! Your pressure cooker can make creamy mashed potatoes or steamed vegetables.
- Familiarize Yourself with Your Instant Pot: Each model may vary slightly. Make sure you read the instructions for your specific model.

Equipment You May Need
- Whether or not you peel the potatoes is a personal preference. I leave the peels on my potatoes (and I leave the skin on my carrots), but you can certainly peel either or both of them if you'd like to.
- If you plan to slice your pot roast, it should be juicy and easy to cut after 80 minutes in the pressure cooker. If you prefer to shred your roast, I recommend adding 10 minutes to the cooking time for a total of 90 minutes.
- This pot roast is delicious with gravy! Reserve the juices to make my quick and easy pot roast gravy recipe!
- To store: Once your pot roast has cooled to room temperature, place it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
- To freeze: Cooled pot roast can be frozen in a plastic freezer storage bag for up to 4 months. Be sure to squeeze out as much excess air as possible. Thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating.
- To reheat: You can reheat your pot roast in your Instant Pot for 5 minutes on high pressure, or you can reheat it in the oven. Place the roast and veggies into a baking dish with a splash of broth to keep it moist and cover with foil. Bake at 300°F (150°C) for 15 minutes or until warmed.
