Cut down your keto meal prep time with these low carb instant pot recipes that are sure to please your entire family.
The Best Low Carb Instant Pot Recipes
I’ve teamed up with a bunch of fellow instant pot lovers to bring you this hefty list of our favorite keto instant pot recipes. Now even though it says Instant Pot, you can also make these recipes in any electric pressure cooker. You can even modify them to be cooked in a slow cooker but the cooking time will not be the same.
So if you’ve never used an instant pot before let me give you the lowdown. It’s basically the best kitchen appliance ever created. Hands down.
And no they’re not paying me to say this LOL. We’d love to work with them though! If anyone knows anyone at the Instant Pot corporate HQ pass them along our info pretty please 🙂
So first off you need to choose which instant pot you will need.
Do you need a 6 quart or an 8-quart instant pot?
With soups and bone broths I prefer to cook in my 8 quart Instant Pot just because they can get a little messy (plus I love left-overs). Most anything else, depending on what size it is should be ale to go into a 6 quart Instant Pot.
Do I need an Instant Pot with a yogurt function?
Probably not. I bought one with a yogurt functions right when it came out and I have yet to make yogurt in it hahaha. I even bought the handy dandy yogurt maker that makes it easier to drain the whey away…it’s still sitting unopened in my pantry.
Will I need a trivet?
In recipes where the food will be sitting in a container (like cheesecake) or in recipes where you don’t want the food to touch the liquid (like to steam veggies) you will need either a trivet or a steamer basket to get your desired results. Check out these Instant Pot Trivets you can get on amazon.
Will I need a push pan or a cheesecake pan?
Good question. Now you can make many more things than just a low carb cheesecake or low carb cake in a push pan or cheesecake pan. You can make casseroles, lasagnas, low carb enchiladas and so many more things. Just get creative with it!
Will I need to make an aluminum foil sling?
You will need to make an aluminum foil sling for recipes which you need to remove a container, such as the cheesecake recipe above. The aluminum foil sling makes it 1000 times easier to remove the pan without burning yourself. Trust me, I’m speaking from experience.
Some other alternatives would be to purchase some silicone mittens or these silicone bands that you can wrap around the container to make it easier to remove from the inner liner.
Now there are a bazillion youtube videos out there on how to use an instant pot so I won’t re-create the wheel, but instead I invite you to watch this video on how to use your instant pot (PS I have no affiliation with this person, it’s just a really good video).
