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. Lock the lid, set the pot to …

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.

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.

When I say “Italy,” what starch pops into your head? Pasta, of course. But, as I found out on my trip to Venice, Italy is much more diverse than the “pizza, pasta, and meatballs” I grew up with. Northern Italy is all about rice. Milan, in Northwest Italy, is famous for fashion – it’s from Milan, dahling – and for bright yellow Risotto alla Milanese, rice colored with a pinch of saffron, the world’s most expensive spice. Saffron is made of the stigmas of the saffron crocus flower, three tiny threads in the center of the bulb. These threads must be harvested by hand, and roughly 5,000 flowers yield one ounce of dried saffron threads. The half-gram jar of Saffron I bought for this recipe cost $10. (That’s right – it’s even more expensive than movie theater popcorn.) How did Milan become famous for saffron risotto? Well, there’s a great story: The legend of Risotto alla Milanese In the 1600s, Mastro Valerio of Flanders led a team of workmen, creating stained glass windows for the …
Instant Pot Pinto Beans. Simple, delicious, dried beans, cooked in about an hour thanks to pressure cooking.
This recipe for Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Rice came from my kids’ love of Chipotle burritos. I knew I could make them at home, but the kids didn’t believe me. And…ahem…they were right. Until I got the rice right, they kept saying “these are good…but can we go to Chipotle now?” Now they ask “can you make burritos for dinner?” (I have to go on a rant here. It kills me that my kids still think of “Chipotle Burritos” when they’re really Mission Street Burritos. I even took them to a burrito joint in San Francisco, on our one trip to the West Coast, to show them where burritos as big as your head came from. They still think of them as Chipotle burritos. Not that there’s anything wrong with Chipotle; it’s the principle of the thing. San Francisco! Mission street! Authentic burritos! It goes right over their heads. I’ll remind them of the San Francisco visit, and they’ll say “Oh yeah, I loved those!”, and then go right back to asking for Chipotle.) The …
