3 simple Boxed Meals in Your Instant Pot – Perfect For Beginners

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!

1 box (7.25 oz) Kraft Macaroni & Cheese
1 1/4 cup water
1/4 cup milk
4 Tablespoons of butter

put macaroni and water, butter and milk in the Instant Pot. Close the lid and turn the vent to a Sealing position. Press the “Pressure Cook” or “Manual” button and set the time to 4 minutes on High pressure.
When it’s done cooking, do a fast release.
Open the Instant Pot the cheese packet. Mix the macaroni and cheese with a spoon so the cheese powder turns into sauce and the sauce is evenly distributed.

Rice of Roni Box

Add 1 1/2 cups + 2 Tbsp water to the pot. Add in the contents of the box (seasonings too) and 1 Tbsp of butter.

Brown a pound of ground meat (beef, chicken, turkey) in your Instant Pot using your SAUTE function. Drain off any excess grease.
Deglaze the pot by pouring in 1 cup of water. Then add in the box of Hamburger Helper and the seasonings. Add in 1 3/4 cup of milk.
