The Instant Pot pressure cooker has become a popular kitchen appliance in the last few years, and we love how easy it makes getting dinner on the table!

These easy Instant Pot recipes are perfect for any level of home cook — from just digging your Instant Pot out of the box to experienced users. There are dinner recipes, soups, side dishes and even dessert — something for everyone and every mood!

The Instant Pot is a useful tool in getting a wholesome dinner on the table in less time. Because it has the ability to cook frozen meat quickly (we cook Frozen Chicken Breasts in the Instant Pot all the time! <– see how here), and can cook large cuts of meat in record amounts of time (hello, tender and juicy Instant Pot Pot Roast!), it is one that makes busy lives easier.

Easy Instant Pot Recipes for Beginners

What size of Instant Pot do I need?

With 3 quart, a 6 quart and an 8 quart options, it can be difficult to know which is the right size.

The 3 quart Instant Pot is great for meals that feed one or two people. If you know you’ll never want to cook for more than that, then the 3 quart can be the perfect fit.

However, if you occasionally like to batch cook (make a big batch of broth or a large roast), it’s a good idea to start with the 6 quart.

With a family of five, we love our 6 quart and have an 8 quart that we use less often. For me, I like the smaller size of the 6 quart and I find that the capacity is enough for us.

I know that many people with large families love the 8 quart, especially if they batch cook for easy lunches or freezer meals.
