Crock Pot Express Beef Recipes

Let’s start with a cow shall we. I will say we eat a lot of these because we buy half of one every single year from a local farmer. Saves us time, money, and I know where our meat is coming from this way.

You can combine a few ingredients together with your meat too though. Essentially if you have the liquid to grain ratio right you can add pasta or rice in there like our beef and noodles recipe. Now let’s move on to the most popular bird to eat too…….

Chicken Recipes Crock Pot Express

Our most popular is probably our Crock Pot Express Barbecue Chicken – The cheapest and easiest dinner you’ll ever make in this multi cooker pressure cooker. It is a kid fave, you only need 3 ingredients and made into tacos they are always a huge hit.

For a whole chicken there are several choices. All of which you want to sit on a trivet with some liquid in the bottom. Add garlic and fresh herbs into a stuffed whole chicken or leave empty inside.

  1. Crock Pot Express Beer Can Chicken – Oh yes you’ve gotta’ try it. (photo above)
  2. Chicken Tikki Masala Looking for an Indian flavored cuisine that you can make in under 30 minutes?  This recipe is for you!

  6. 7 Minute Chicken Soup in pressure cooker –  You’ll have to try this recipe to believe it!  Chicken noodle soup in 7 minutes?! Just brown saute the meat, add everything else and it’s done in a few minutes.

I will tell you that soups work probably the best for a fast meal. You can start with dry beans or peas too and start from scratch quite easily. A cheap meal that goes over well especially if it is cold and snowy outside.

Recipes for Crockpot Express

I always use simple ingredients. You can always swap out spices or seasonings you would rather use than my suggestions. Most important part to take into account is how much liquid is necessary for each one. If not enough is included the pot will stop working and you’ll be frustrated.

That comes into play more than ever with grains like our pressure cooker lentils and rice to get it tender.

  1. Chicken Pho Best pressure cooker chicken feast for your family
  2. Crockpot Express Whole Chicken  What else can cook a whole rotisserie chicken in under 30 minutes?  Your machine can.
  3. Pressure Cooker Pulled Chicken Shred it and pair it with any veggies of your choice.
  4. Yummy Chicken Orzo Soup  Soon to be a staple on your weeknight meal plan!
  5. Tomato Basil Chicken Breast Not only does it look great, it tastes even better.
  6. Chicken and Dumplings pressure cooker  A true crowd favorite.
  7. Cooking a simple Bone In Chicken Breast Recipe is done under high pressure in just 12 minutes!

Go from your grandmothers favorite dish that took all day to make to less than 30 minutes flat. Using leftover rotisserie chicken or fresh meat this one turns out fabulous every time. You can throw together our healthy soup recipe here and pressure cook for just 3 minutes to soften and done.

Electric Pressure Cooker Recipes

Let me tell you that you should not try slow cooker recipes in this thing. That function doesn’t work well and you’ll be disappointed. Just use your old fashioned pot for that because that is what it is for. More recipes please??!! Here you go!

  1. Pressure cooker Oxtails Super simple…and tender meat recipe.  A fun take on a classic dish.
  2. Quinoa Black Bean Crockpot Express Stuffed Peppers
    • Enchilada-Style Stuffed Peppers Meat, cheese, and veggies?  A complete meal in one! You really can stuff these with any ingredients you want.
  3. You can cook any sort of organ meat under high pressure as well. Pork, beef or deer liver gets tender nicely this way in just a few minutes.
  4. Bolognese Sauce  Great recipe to serve over noodles!

For a treat I would try pressure cooker lobster tail. You can start from frozen or fresh, a great way to steam seafood.

Crockpot Express Salmon cooked in 5 minutes?  Game on. We love that one for an easy and healthy dinner option. If you are wanting to venture out to try something new, pressure cooker cow tongue may be the way.

If you’re also looking for Ninja Foodi recipes, we have a resource for those too on our site! You can make any of those on that tab, they work just the same way. Things like air fryer mustard chicken get super tender with crispy skin with sauce on the outside.

For a family friendly meal with frozen meatballs you should try our quick and easy Meatball Stroganoff recipe.

  1. Creamy Mac and Cheese   Unbelievably delicious, and super cheesy.
