If you need Ninja Foodi recipes, you can use that pot instead.
Use any cut of pork you might have really. Just cube it into bite size pieces and you’re set.
Let’s start with a few basic tips:
- Make sure to Bookmark our InstaPot recipes page. We add new ones each week!
- Then LIKE our IP Facebook page for new ideas daily.
- For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.
Here are a few questions you might have before getting started on this one:
It depends on what cut you’re referring to. For the best pork chops you want to make sure you don’t overcook them or they’ll get dry. Larger pieces need to cook low and slow which is why they are great as a Crockpot recipe.
That is a big question and hard to answer quickly. Pork has been said to be a bit more nutritional, but beef has more Iron and Zinc.
These are the ingredients we used. Of course you can really pack it with vegetables. Use whatever type of potatoes you prefer. Red potatoes are great as well.
The cook time is quite quick compared to if it were in a slow cooker.
Yes you must add about 25 minutes to the cook time for it to pressurize and allow steam to release at the end. So count on about an hour from start to finish.
Some quick step by step directions are here but you can print recipe below as well.
Time needed: 35 minutes.
