3 simple and AFFORDABLE Instant Pot Dinner Ideas – Instant Pot Recipes

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

We are all about simple meals, but making them affordable is even better! These 3 recipes are a breeze to throw together, and taste delicious!
We have 1 Instant Pot Keto recipe, one loaded with carbs, and the other a healthy dinner thought!

I would love to hear what kind of recipes or dinner ideas you want to see! Hope you have a excellent Monday and stay warm!
