Cooking this traditional holiday bird is not a picnic. Large and unwieldy, a typical turkey (14 to 16 pounds) requires 2 to 2.5 hours of roasting in the oven. Even the most spacious instant pot models (8 cups) can not hold such a large bird – at best, you can place an 8-pound turkey in his jumbo pot.
If you only cook for a few people, an 8-pound bird is enough. The smaller size and high pressure conditions of the Instant Pot ensure a much shorter cooking time.
Expect 6 minutes of active cooking (under pressure) per pound. That's about 48 minutes. To enjoy crispy skin, you should plan conventional roasting in the oven for a few minutes. Check out this recipe to make the entire instant pot turkey.
There's another way to activate your instant pot turkey game – use turkey parts instead (think of quarter sections and breast meat). It's certainly the way to go if you have a standard 6 quart pot. Personally, I vouch for this clever recipe. It makes flavored sauce, mashed potatoes and poultry in a batch.
You can not call it Thanksgiving. As with crispy-roasted turkey roast, you need to cook traditionally baked dishes like these in the oven. Everything else, however, you do in the Multicooker.
Here is a recipe for bread and sausage that the Instant Pot website recommends.
The core strength of the instant pot is convenient high pressure cooking. Use this option to make turkey broth and ultimately gravy in a fraction of the time that is normally required.
This sauce recipe requires turkey parts, wings and neck (if present) to develop a deep aroma. After you have fried spices and flavor, brown the turkey pieces in lots. Next, combine everything with water and close the lid of the instant pot. After 45 minutes of pressure cooking and a fast load, your warehouse is ready. You can also create batches for a few days in advance and store them in the refrigerator.
The conversion of this liquid into a delicious turkey breast sauce takes just a few minutes. That's half the time required by the stove method.
I admit that when it comes to cranberry sauce, I'm a barbarian. Since childhood, only the artificially smooth, sour kind from the tin will suffice.
If you prefer home-made seasoning, the instant pot has your back. The dynamic blogging duo Amy and Jacky have a recipe that looks very tempting. If the results are as good as they look, maybe I'll break my bad cranberry sauce habit.
The instant pot is known for its savory dishes, but it can also include desserts . New York cheesecake is a popular option among instant pot aficionados. Two recipes that I came across felt particularly lenient.
The first is a pancake cheesecake. Yes, I said eggnog. The second recipe further enhances decadence. Honestly, this Oreo Cheesecake looks cute enough to enjoy all year round.
