How to Make Freezer Meals for the Instant Pot
Freeze Your Meal in a Circular Form
Pro Tip 1
Freeze the meal in a zip-top freezer bag, and place the meal in a bowl (or something that is a round shape). It’ll plop right into that Instant Pot!
IF POSSIBLE, DON’T STACK YOUR MEAT WHEN FREEZING MEALS FOR THE INSTANT POT.
Pro Tip 2
Because the Instant Pot cooks so fast, if meat (especially chicken breast) is stacked, it’s really hard for it all to cook evenly.
LARGE CUTS OF MEAT SHOULD BE CUT INTO SMALL PIECES BEFORE FREEZING
Pro Tip 3
We’re talking pork shoulders and beef roasts. In order for meat to cook evenly and to get really tender, it’s better if it’s not in one big chunk.
SAUTÉ THE FREEZER MEAL IN THE INSTANT POT FOR 5 MINUTES BEFORE COOKING.
Pro Tip 4
The point of this is to release some liquid from the frozen meal, which will help the Instant Pot come to pressure more quickly.
