Cooking meals in an Instant Pot pressure cooker has been a true game changer for my family. There can be a bit of a learning curve with pressure cooking, so I wanted to make it a bit easier. I created this Printable Instant Pot Pressure Cooking Times Chart to help you learn how long to cook items, how much liquid to use, and whether to use the quick release or natural release method. Consider it your Instant Pot cheat sheet!
How Long To Cook Food in an Instant Pot
I use my Instant Pot pressure cooker at least 3-4 times each week to cook family meals and for meal prep. I make Shredded Chicken from Frozen Chicken Breasts, Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs, soups and more! When I first got our Instant Pot, I had no idea what to do with it. I mean, I was ready to use it, but wasn’t really sure how. I started by making a couple of recipes that I found on Pinterest, then as I got more comfortable, I started to learn how to use it to create my own recipes. After getting pretty comfortable using my pressure cooker, I thought it would be nice to create a printable chart to keep on my refrigerator so I could quick reference cook times, liquid requirements and be able to see whether I should quick release or use natural release. I hope these free printable time charts help you get more comfortable with your pressure cooker and maybe even inspire you to cook a few new things!
