One Pot Delights for Winter

What many of us are looking for in January cooking are meals that are warm, filling, comforting and healthy. It would help if they didn’t take too much time to prepare as well. It’s a perfect time to explore what a pressure cooker can do for you!

The popularity of the Instant Pot has brought pressure cooking into the mainstream, but you can make delicious hearty meals no matter what brand of cooker you own.

If you are new to pressure cooking, you can get the lowdown on what kind of cooker to buy and how to use it in Serious Eats’ How to Really Use an Instant Pot and Other Multi-Cookers.

Here are some delicious-sounding pressure cooker recipes for winter we found on highly regarded food blogs:

Vegetarian Recipes

Three-Bean Chili from Smitten Kitchen
Chili, to me, bridges the gap between the seasons — it can be treated as heavy and hearty as the thickest stew or be scooped with tortilla chips for a perfect summer dinner.

Instant Pot Dynamite Cold Tonic from 101 Cookbooks
If you need to jolt a cold out of your body with brute force, you might consider starting here. This head-clearing, sniffle-blasting cold tonic is the color of Tang, with flavor like a stick of ginger dynamite.

Instant Pot Mushroom Stroganoff with Vodka from 101 Cookbooks
Pasta fans especially, this one is for you. Quite healthy and hearty. This is my take, trying to land squarely in the later camp.

Those last two are from 101 Cookbooks extensive Instant Pot Recipes page.

Omnivore Recipes

Pressure Cooker Pot-au-Feu (French Boiled Beef and Vegetables) from Serious Eats
Pot-au-feu (pot on the fire) is one of France's most famous home-cooked dishes. It features an assortment of beef cuts and vegetables, all simmered in a flavorful broth until buttery and tender. 

Korean Braised Short Ribs from Smitten Kitchen
This recipe is a delight. On the second day, it’s even better, and as well as the third.

And here are some recipes that you can make with on-sale items in our One Pot display:
