Brown hard boiled eggs on a teal plate

Instant Pot 7-Hour Eggs in 75 minutes (Korean Sauna Eggs)

Forget about 5-5-5 hard-boiled eggs. How about 7 hour eggs, cooked under pressure in an Instant Pot for an hour? Cooked so long the whites turn brown? Instant pot 7-Hour eggs sound so weird. I MUST TRY THEM. The picture of a brown egg inside a white shell grabbed me: Make Korean Sauna Eggs in Your Instant Pot[skillet.lifehacker.com]. I read the recipe, then started googling around, trying to figure out why it’s “Sauna Eggs”. The story is, Korean bathhouses take advantage of the wet, steamy heat in their saunas to cook eggs all day long. They cook for so long that the eggs brown in the shell. (I also found references to food scientist Harold McGee trying this, getting similar results with an hour of pressure cooking.) Like I said, I had to try this out. Based on Harold McGee’s timings, with my usual adjustment for electric pressure cookers, I went for 75 minutes in my Instant Pot. Water, salt, a rack, and the eggs – that’s everything.

Cooked black beans in an orange bowl with a jar of chipotles behind it

Instant Pot Chipotle Beans

When I’m not busy being a food nerd, I’m a Science Fiction and Fantasy nerd. (I’m sure this is a shock to all of you.) One of my favorite authors is Ursala Vernon; her Clockwork Boys series were , and she mentioned “Chipotle Beans” on Twitter a while back. I immediately thought “What a great idea!” Instant Pot Chipotle Beans, here we come. So I made a batch – saute some aromatics, add chipotle, cook the beans in my magic bean cooker, the Instant Pot. They were fantastic…and it looks like I’m not the only one to think so. It turns out, Ursula’s husband Kevin got the recipe from the Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook. Which, I’m ashamed to say, has been on my Kindle for over a year now, but I never got around to opening it up. In other words, special thanks to Laurel Randolph’s cookbook for indirectly inspiring this recipe… What do you think? Questions? Other ideas? Leave them in the comments section below.

Instant Pot Italian Ricotta Cheesecake

Reader Ray needs an Instant Pot Italian Ricotta Cheesecake recipe. I can’t let him down, can I? Of course not! I started researching recipes, which broke down into two major techniques. The first is all-ricotta-cheese cakes, usually with the egg separated, the egg whites whipped and folded into the cake. In other words, a ricotta soufflé. The other kind are Italian-American hybrids, using both cream cheese and ricotta cheese. That’s the kind I went with – I’ve never had much luck with soufflés, and separating and whipping seemed like too much work. After that it was pretty much my standard Instant Pot Cheesecake Technique, with ricotta mixed in. Oh, and a dusting of powdered sugar, and seedless raspberry jam as a topping. Looking for a cheesecake with Italian sprezzatura? Here it is. What do you think? Questions? Other ideas? Leave them in the comments section below.
