If you’re looking to get in on the Instant Pot craze, food blogger Joanna Cismaru of Jo Cooks has got you covered.
Cismaru (with the help of her husband, Remo) has created hundreds of delicious recipes in her time writing, creating, photographing and cooking all the delicious recipes you’ll find on her site.
“People ask me all the time, what sort of food I cook and blog about,” Cismaru writes on her site. “The truth is, everything. I cook anything and everything, and well, we eat everything, and if my husband and I can’t eat everything, there are plenty of friends, family or neighbors who love to help us out. I, most of all, love simple recipes with few everyday ingredients that you can either find in your pantry, or are easy to find at your local grocery store.”
Cismaru is entirely self-taught and has been cooking for over 20 years. In other words, she’s just the woman to introduce you to the wonders of the Instant Pot.

Instant Pot chicken noodle soup
Comfort food made simple! Indulge in this rich and mouthwateringly good chicken noodle soup packed full of tender veggies, chicken and egg noodles.

The result is a soup that tastes like it was made using a homemade broth.
Instant Pot beef stroganoff
This beef stroganoff won’t disappoint. Ready in only 30 minutes, this dish is hearty and delectable! Also known as beef stroganov, this Russian recipe has become a classic all over the world, thanks to its great flavor. While there are different variations of the recipe, most stroganoffs call for beef strips cooked in a sauce made using sour cream.
Instant Pot chicken tikka masala
Made completely from scratch, this creamy tikka masala isn’t all that hard to make and takes barely any time. Traditional tikka masala is cooked using a tandoor oven, but you can make it in an Instant Pot pressure cooker without compromising any of the traditional taste. Because the chicken gets cooked under high pressure, it becomes infused with the different spices used in the recipe.
