Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cheddar-spinach strata

    • Veronik on January 03, 2019

      Very good recipe to use up day-old baguette. I used frozen spinach instead of fresh and everyone liked it.

  • Savory sausage + broccoli bread pudding

    • cjross on February 13, 2019

      I did not enjoy the taste of this at all, I think because of the nutmeg. It also didn't come out very set.

  • Rigatoni all'Amatriciana

    • Londonyankee on January 04, 2019

      Sauce burned and pasta was undercooked. Finished cooking in the microwave. It had great flavor, but it needs work to fix the problems. Possible solution - according to HIP website, cook pasta for half of time specified on box at LOW Pressure

  • Spaghetti + meatballs

    • cjross on February 13, 2019

      This was incredibly good. Worked perfectly well with gluten free panko and Barilla gluten free spaghetti.

  • Risotto carbonara

    • cjross on February 13, 2019

      I thought this was pretty good but missing something. Maybe a squeeze of lemon would have helped.

  • Chicken cacciatore with mushrooms

    • mamacrumbcake on November 13, 2018

      This makes a nice, easy, and well-seasoned meal. The chicken is tender and the sauce is delicious. You will want something—bread, rice, pasta, potatoes—to soak up all the sauce.

  • Cuban chicken + rice

    • cthdawn on December 30, 2018

      Added recaito

  • Sriracha turkey meatloaf with buttered potatoes

    • Londonyankee on March 07, 2019

      The onion didn’t cook well, and I used prechopped which was not minced. I think I would used pre-cooked or caramelized next time. Flavor was good and it was very easy. Used a small cake pan. My potatoes were too large so I had to cook one packet afterwards. Very easy full meal in the Ipot, just needed a green to round out dinner.

    • mamacrumbcake on February 25, 2019

      I was really pleased with this recipe. The turkey meatloaf was delicious and was tender and juicy.

  • Lamb + bulgur stuffed peppers with yogurt sauce

    • Veronik on February 21, 2019

      Excellent. Will certainly make this again.

  • Shrimp + grits with bacon + cheddar

    • NJChicaa on December 30, 2018

      It would be as easy to make this on the stovetop.

  • Cajun red beans with andouille sausage

    • westminstr on January 02, 2019

      I had to make a number of changes including replacing cayenne with aleppo pepper, omitting the sage, and I also skipped the mysterious clove of minced garlic since I just couldn't figure out where it would go. I didn't pre-soak the beans as called for, so I decided to do a quick soak before proceeding with the recipe. I did this by cooking 1lb of beans, 8 c of water and 2 tsp salt to the pressure cooker for 2 minutes on HP, then left the house to run an errand. When I returned 30 minutes later my beans (sitting on keep warm mode) were almost completely cooked! I drained the beans and used all the beans in the recipe, along with the specified amount of their cooking liquid, and no additional salt since the bean broth already had plenty of salt. I proceeded the recipe, but only cooked for an additional 4min at HP. Turned out perfect! This had robust flavor and was a surprise hit with both kids.

  • Bo ssam

    • Veronik on January 24, 2019

      My roast was smaller than called for, so used less salt and sugar for the rub. I saw a criticism somewhere that their's was too salty, so this may explain why mine wasn't. Another explanation might be the length of the cure - I opted for overnight rather than the minimum 6 hours. All in all, a delicious recipe.

    • mamacrumbcake on November 13, 2018

      I used a boneless pork shoulder, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It turned out very well, the meat was meltingly tender and the ginger scallion sauce was delicious.

  • Chocolate-bourbon lava cakes with sea salt

    • Londonyankee on January 01, 2019

      Incredibly easy and rich! I only made 2 servings, just to try since these must be eaten immediately after cooking. I got 2 ramekins in but it would be hard to get 3 in with 1 balanced on top, so I might need to buy another trivet for the pot.
