Filled with 200 recipes from breakfast to dinner to dessert, who knew cooking with an Instant Pot could be so simple.
The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook is a great resource for those people lucky enough to own an Instant Pot or other brand of electric pressure cooker. The author explains that the recipes can also be easily adapted for a stove top pressure cooker too. The recipes are easy to follow and include only ingredients most pantries will have on hand. The introduction includes a very nice discussion about how the appliance works. The best part, of course, are the recipes. Who can resist trying Triple Chocolate Cheesecake, Coq au Vin or Beef Stroganoff made quicker and easier within an Instant Pot? Or cooking dried beans for truly homemade Red Beans and Rice in only an hour? Yum!
The recipes all sound delicious. Having the index organized by main ingredient (i.e., beef, chocolate, zucchini) makes it easy to see what options are available based on what the reader has on hand. Their are many vegetarian and gluten-free recipe options though there is no labeling of the recipes. The only drawbacks are there is no nutritional information provided and pictures are infrequent.
I tried a few of the recipes (Corned Beef and Cabbage, Red Beans and Rice, Quick Turkey Chili) with excellent results. I highly recommend this cookbook for both experienced electric pressure cooker users and newbies like myself.
