Why Do People Love Chinese Recipes?
I love Chinese recipes and so do my kids. Before the Instant Pot I used a wok and stove top to prepare them but recently we have been trying our hand at some quick and easy instant pot Asian recipes too. There are lots of reasons why people love Chinese food, although one of the main ones is that there are a wide variety of foods to choose from including noodles, rice and of course stir fries.
One of the main reasons I love Chinese food is that it always tastes amazing, regardless if you are eating in or ordering out. It’s hard to get a bad meal when you go out for Chinese and the same goes with stir fries prepared at home. This means that my daughter and husband can eat lots of different foods without complaining because there are so many options to choose from.
What is an Instant Pot?
The Instant Pot is a 7 in 1 cooker which includes a rice cooker, a pressure cooker a slow cooker a yogurt maker, a cake maker and a steamer. You can use it to sauté or brown your meats prior to cooking and it’s extremely easy to use too. There are lots of recipes here at The Instant Pot Table including cooking times for meats, vegetables and rice in the Instant pot so all you need to do is look up your favourite Chinese recipe and test it out!
Do I Need a Pressure Cooker?
No you do not need a pressure cooker to enjoy Asian recipes at home, however it’s super easy and makes cooking much quicker. If you are cooking to save time then it’s well worth the investment. I would recommend taking a look at Instant Brands if you’re thinking of buying one to see which model is best for you and your family.
