This is a quick and easy main dish, something I sort of whipped up on the spur of the moment.
Ma Lipo’s Apricot-Glazed Turkey with Roasted Onion and Shallot Gravy. I made this for both our thanksgiving and christmas dinners in 2011. It’s my new favourite way to roast turkey.
It’s nearing the end of summer, and you’ve probably had your share of hot dogs, but these Argentine dogs are as far from yellow mustard and ketchup as you can get.
This is a recipe from the Palermo Brothers, a comedy duo, who had the famous tag line “‘Atsa Louie, I’ma Phil”. This appeared in their autobiography of that name. I am pretty sure it’s out of print now, but you can pick up facsimiles still. This recipe appeared in the paper, which is how I got it. It’s a winner!
This makes a very tasty, fall-off-the-bone, barbequed chicken done in the oven.
Frittatas are like fancy omelettes with potatoes. This one is very tasty. This recipe came out of a Williams-Sonoma catalog, which coincidently is where we purchased the frittata pan…
Oh my, this was so good. This is now a go-to recipe for us. Consider adding loose sausage instead of the eggs, or even chicken. Yum! This is definitely one for the houseboat!
This delicious stuffed zucchini recipe can be served as either a sidedish or a maindish.
Beef Bourguignon (or “Beef Burgundy”) is my favorite thing to cook in my Instant Pot. It’s aromatic and filling and is a great meal to make for company or to serve on a cold autumn or winter night.
This one goes in the Holy Cow! file – a lot of vinegary stuff in this recipe!
This is another family and potluck favourite. Double for potluck.
This is amazing Mac-n-Cheese. It’s a bit heavy on the bacon for how much other stuff is in there, but if you love bacon, this is your dish!
A pretty simple beef hot dish. This is a recipe my Mom found ages and ages ago and inflicted on us. We actually liked it.
Not a whole lot different that the colorado red chili, but this is just focused on the meat part, not making a chili.
You can use just about any round winter squash for this recipe. But steer clear of the field pumpkins meant for jack-o’-lanterns: Their flesh is stringy and less tasty than other varieties.
I threw this together rather spontaneously tonight with things at hand. It’s a pretty simple thing, probably can be the basis for something even better-er.
From the webiste: “Instant Pot
Shredded Chicken Burrito Bowl is the most delicious Burrito you will ever eat. One pot cooking in your instant pot and it takes less than 20 minutes to prepare.”
This sounds so delicious – I might try to create a non-crockpot version as well.
A great dish, easily prepared, and can be combined with so many things.
This is a traditional Alsacian recipe, rather simplified here, but oh so delicious
Pork chops with applesauce has been a staple in many cultures; cooking pork with apples and onions/shallots is a divine way to prepare this meat. This recipe makes things go even better with the addition of cinnamon and sage.
This is the classic roast turkey recipe I’ve been following for some time, when I don’t make the apricot glazed turkey. This is pretty universal.
This sounds really basic and easy, when I have time to wait while it bakes. TOO THIN!
I don’t have any experience with cooking gnocchi, but this recipe sounds so absolutely wonderful. Another great one from the Half-baked Harvest.
This looks like such a simple recipe, sure to be a favourite!
A rather easy version of that famouse New Orleans dish.
Traditional chicken enchiladas in rolled corn tortillas and baked.
This looks like a super delightful recipe, and easy, too.
Try this garlic scape pancakes recipe from Kitchen Vignettes. These flaky pancakes are a great appetizer or side dish from PBS Food.
A very differently flavoured meatloaf than the usual American style. This is a bit like a loaf of gyros.
a mexican-inspired casserole with chicken and tomatillo sauce
This sounds quite easy to make one of my favourite things to eat. Can also use with ground pork or chicken.
A traditional moroccan dish served each night of Ramadan to break the fast
These Instant Pot Hawaiian Chicken Tacos are out of this WORLD. Juicy pineapple and spiced chicken crisped under the broiler, tucked into tortillas, and rolled up with creamy jalapeño ranch slaw.
Honey Garlic Chicken - moist, tender, fall-off-the-bone chicken thighs in savory and sweet honey garlic sauce and made in an Instant Pot, so delicious
Sure, you could labor over beef burgundy stew for hours like most recipes call for. Or you could make this hands-off Instant Pot™ version that’s ready with less time and less effort. Both techniques result in dinner that’s beyond delicious. We’ll leave it up to you on how to get there.
Now you don’t have to wait for the fair, the food truck or leave your house when you’re craving Greek food.

This is already dairy-free, it needs something besides a pita to make it gluten-free. too
Instant Pot Mississippi Pot Roast with butter, ranch, au jus, pepperoncinis, and a nice chuck roast, this is an absolute classic pot roast. You can make it so much faster in your pressure cooker!
This is another one of those one-pan meals my seester calls “Stuff With Stuff In It” and makes a couple of meals worth of stuff. Mostly this is easy for me to make, doesn’t hurt my hands with much prep or handlind cold items, and is fast enough it doesn’t take all my spoons to make it.
Mung beans turn up in various guises in Asian cooking, with fresh sprouts being the most common form. This favorite dish of southern Vietnam uses yellow mung beans—split dried green mung beans with their husks removed. Nuoc cham is a condiment offered as an accompaniment to myriad Vietnamese dishes, such as these crepes.
I was in the mood for an old family favourite, tater-tot casserole. This was my family’s standard Tuesday night fare, when my Mom came home from teaching at the Weavers’ Guild and needed something quick to feed to hungry children.
Craving the classic flavors of an egg roll but without the wrapper? This one-pan version is an incredibly simple meal that’s made with a variety of vegetables and tastes just like a traditional egg roll.
A good orange chicken should have just that little bit of sweetness and tanginess to it without being completely overpowering. It should also have that beautiful, slightly sticky gloss and marinade that perfectly coats the chicken. Most orange chicken recipes will have you fry the chicken first to get it nice and crispy, but if you want to make this dish healthier, skip the breading and the frying. Cook the chicken pieces in a skillet, then pour the sauce over and let the chicken and sauce boil until you get that perfect gloss.
Baked pork chops coated in parmesan, flour, and breadcrumbs.
Fragrant cinnamon, oregano and thyme lend an exotic touch to this baked pasta dish. I often make it with ground lamb, although beef is a satisfying substitute. It can be made almost entirely ahead and serves a crowd — two things that make entertaining family and friends easy and enjoyable. From Meredith Deeds.
“Makes a lot and is just incredible. Everyone loves this dish and it is worth the effort.”
Not quite converted to DF / GF, but close. A pretty easy casserole. It will need something for the noodle crunch that is GF.
This sounds like a real winner if done in the slow cooker.
Shallots, garlic, wine, tomatoes, and cream make a fabulous fresh sauce for prawns (or shrimp) and pasta. It is paired with angel hair pasta here, but feel free to use your favorite pasta or even cheese tortellini. Have all your ingredients chopped and ready to go because this dish only takes about 15 minutes to cook from start to finish.
One of my all-time favorite German dishes is sauerbraten, but I don’t love that it normally takes five to 10 days to make. Using an electric pressure cooker, I think I’ve captured that same distinctive flavor in less than two hours. —James Schend, Deputy Editor, Taste of Home
This recipe is a nice substitute for the usual beef meat loaf. It’s plenty moist and so flavorful with the sweet red pepper. Leftovers are great for sandwiches the next day.
Another recipe my mom found for us to try. It sounds good, except the olives. :P If I’m making this, I’m leaving out the olives.
Carb Pie starts with potatoes! Potatoes are peeled and sliced in thin, but not totally paper thin rounds. Olive oil and Old Bay Seasoning are applied liberally.

The name on this one is rather bland, but it sounds like a good recipe.
Easiest shrimp boil ever! And it’s mess-free using a single sheet pan. That’s right. ONE PAN. No newspapers. No bags. No clean-up!
Made this a couple of night ago, yet another of what my sister calls “Stuff with Stuff In It” :D
Hum… maybe? Another from the same issue as others.
This was a winner of a recipe. I substituted 1/2 cup of red wine for some of the beef broth. (Who wouldn’t??) We had this two nights running and the “ummmmmms” and “oooooos” around the table were pretty awesome.
Bulgogi is a traditional Korean dish, usually with beef. This is a version done in a crockpot, aka slow-cooker.

The family classic, using the meatball mix from Ingabretsen’s.
From the half-baked harvest blog, these “burgers” and onion rings look like they’d be super delicious, and probably a lot healthier than the standard fast-food sort.
Here’s an Instant Pot Tamales recipe that you can make on a weeknight without too much fuss. It has all of the taste of tamales, but done in under an hour. These tamales healthier and lower fat, since they don’t use pork lard.
I get asked to make this a lot. Before I knew what it was called, I called it “Wild Turkey Surprise.” Now I know better and it’s actually got some legitimacy to it. The basic recipe here started with a recipe from a Sunset magazine cookbook, Favorite Recipes. I’ve modified since then.
Stir-fries are easy and wonderful and you can experiment with all kinds of things. At one point, I just picked up a bunch of fresh veggies and went at it. This is the result. This recipe requires two separate pans, one to cook the vegetables and other to cook the chicken.
This sounds like a pretty awesome dish.
I just made some lunch for myself and it was stream-of-concsiousness cooking.
Yet another variation on Wild Turkey Surprise, aka Stuff with Stuff In It, aka Mess

We call this “Red Kettle” pot roast because we cook it in a red dutch oven :-)
