Not many recipes deliver supreme comfort as well as great nutrition, but this classic Italian meatball soup is one of those rare finds. Healthy white beans, spinach, and lots of chopped veggies team up with savory meatballs and a splash of heavy cream to make everybody happy.
I’ve made classic French Beef Bourguignon traditional-style in the oven and also in the Instant Pot, but it’s the slow-cooker version that has gotten the most love over the years. It’s hard to beat a slow-cooker meal for convenience and coziness. When presentation matters, don’t forget the fresh herbs!
When something sounds this good, the recipe better deliver, and you can count on me to layer all the flavors you love into this easy, Italian-inspired one-pot meal.
This one is a little bit of an outlier — it’s vegetarian, and very very simple. Why have you guys loved it so much? I think it’s because of the pure magic that is making risotto in the Instant Pot. The texture is consistently better than any that I have made myself on the stovetop, seriously. I’ll never make risotto any other way.
I always find Ina Garten’s recipes reliable, so it’s no surprise that this delicious chicken make the list of all-time favorites. The chicken is marinated in a buttermilk, mustard, and garlic mixture and then baked to crispy perfection with a generous coating of seasoned Panko breadcrumbs. I like to serve it with roasted Brussels sprouts this time of year, but green beans, a big green salad, or roasted potatoes would also be amazing.
Cooking pork chops in the Instant Pot turns what used to be an all-day affair in the slow cooker into a weeknight ready recipe that feels gourmet. The creamy mushroom sauce is a versatile recipe on it’s own that would be great with chicken or pasta, too!
This is a bright, satisfying, and super easy to prep meal that is great for any size crowd. Peppers, onions, and brats get cooked together on a sheet pan and served up with buns and lots of grainy mustard!
