Let me help you take the guessing game out of “what can I make in an Instant Pot” with this huge roundup of Instant Pot comfort food recipes!
What’s an Instant Pot?
First, a quick explanation of what the heck this kitchen appliance is, and why you might want one.
Yes, it can make yogurt. I haven’t quite stumbled on a reason why I’d want to make yogurt in an Instant Pot instead of buy it, but if you know of a reason, definitely drop a comment and illuminate me.
Do you need both a Crock Pot and an Instant Pot? Personally, my answer is yes. I am only scratching the surface of what all Instant Pots are capable of. I own four slow cookers in varying sizes, and I’m not sending any to Goodwill quite yet.
