Instant Pot Potsticker Bowls–all the flavors of potstickers with hardly any of the work! Ground pork, noodles, cabbage and a flavorful sauce all come together in a delicious one pot meal.
Instant Pot Potsticker Bowls
Greg literally had three servings of these Instant Pot potsticker bowls. He was obsessed! They are super tasty. With noodles that soak up the savory asian sauce, cabbage, pork and some scrambled eggs it’s a home run dinner that I think you’re going to love!
- Make sure to use low sodium soy sauce for maximum flavor but a dish that is not over-the-top salty.
- Ground pork is what I used but I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t use ground beef or ground turkey.
- It will seem like a lot of cabbage but it shrinks down so much. Don’t worry if the cabbage is almost to the top of the pot.
- For a flavor and spice boost stir in a teaspoon or two of sriracha.
- Buy ginger root in the product section at the grocery store. Use a tiny grater or microplane to grate the amount you need. Wrap the ginger in foil and store in the freezer. When you need it for another recipe you can just grate it frozen. It’s actually easier to grate frozen. You don’t even need to peel off skin.
- I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. You can make this in the 8 quart with no changes. Halve the recipe in the 3 quart pot.

All the flavors of potstickers with hardly any of the work! Ground pork, noodles, cabbage and a flavorful sauce all come together in a delicious one pot meal.

- 2 tsp rice vinegar
- 1 1/2 tsp minced ginger root
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 Tbsp minced garlic
- 1 1/2 cups water or broth

- 3 green onions, diced
- Turn Instant Pot to saute setting. When display says HOT add in the pork and break it up. Brown for about 5 minutes. Turn off Instant Pot.
- In a bowl stir together the soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, pepper, garlic. Stir the mixture into the meat.
- Pour the water into the pot and scrape bottom of pot so that nothing is sticking. Break the noodles in half and lay them in a criss cross pattern on top of the meat.

- Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 5 minutes. When time is up let pot sit for 10 minute and then move valve to venting. Remove the lid.
- In a pan on the stove, scramble the two eggs. Stir the eggs into the pot.
- Add sriracha to taste, if desired. Stir in the green onions. Serve and enjoy!

Any idea what the timing would be for oriental rice noodles? Maybe prepare them sepately?
I would not pressure cook them. They get super gluey and do not turn out.
This was really good! I have made an eggroll in a bowl but my husband liked this recipe better. He told me I can make this one often.
Yay! Thanks for the 5 stars Chris!
Great umami flavor! I doubled the recipe but didn’t have double the meat. I used ground turkey and added in 8 oz portobello mushrooms. Daughter said it is the best she’s had!
It was a bit salty even using low sodium soy sauce the first night I made it. Leftovers don’t seem as salty. Will make again!
So glad you and your daughter enjoyed the potsticker bowls! I love this recipe!
I want to double the recipe, which I found the ingredients list for, but I need to know how much time to pressure cook, release, etc. for the doubled recipe
Keep the same cooking time for the doubled version of this recipe.
I do a lot of pressure cooking meat or making broth but I rarely try pasta or one pot meals, so I was skeptical about that. This was SO GOOD. I used ground chicken but stayed pretty loyal to recipe. Will make again!
I’m so glad you tried it!! I love this one too.
This was delicious. I used spicy sausage for extra flavor. I was able to get away with only using 1/3c of tamari because I didn’t have low sodium. My head of cabbage must have been small because I was able to use it all! Also added sesame oil to my serving. The noodles came out perfectly. That was my biggest worry. Definitely will make again!!
So glad you liked it!
I think I need to find a different soy sauce because that’s all I could taste, the noodles were also undercooked and I used linguine noodles. If I were to make it again I think I would likely add some honey to the sauce and more ginger.
Sorry! I am not sure what soy sauce you used but that could have been the issue. Increase cooking time by a couple minutes next time hopefully that will help.
I order super low sodium soy sauce on Amazon. They come in a pack of 2 large bottles and are tasty and contain less sodium than those in the market.

Any tips on using gluten free noodles? Would the cook time be the same? I always have either Barilla or Jovial in my pantry.
I am not sure! Honestly I have never cooked with gluten free noodles in the IP or otherwise
Kelly Flynn says
Do you think I could throw in frozen pot stickers in place of meat and noodles? Would you adjust the cook time?
I wouldn’t pressure cook pot stickers. They will be way overcooked.
Val B says
Neither my husband nor myself will eat cabbage no matter how its cooked, can you suggest a substitute. Love mostly all of your recipes but especially those one pot does all.
Thank you Karen
For this recipe you really need the cabbage…you may want to try a different recipe if you don’t like cabbage
How many cups of cabbage would this be if I were to buy preshredded cabbage? Can’t wait to try this! Thank you so much!
I would say 3-4 cups
It was easy and good. Only had 1/2 lb. of ground pork and it was enough. Also added a diced carrot for color. Used linguine and cooked for 4 minutes.
This recipe was just okay to me. Too much of the same flavor/texture.
John M. says
This was extremely tasty and so easy to prepare. Another ‘365’ winner! Thanks so much, Karen.
A note to IP 3-Qt. Mini users — I made the entire recipe as written with room to spare, so go for it. I did have to add 4 minutes of pressure cooking time to get the fettucine noodles soft enough to eat.
Good to know it works in the 3 quart!
Can’t wait to try, thoughts on using chicken breast vs ground pork?
I don’t love the idea honestly. I do think ground chicken would be good though.
Tema Goldberg says
I think She meant groundChicken instead of Pork.
Amanda B. says
I used ground chicken last night and it was delish!
can you cut this recipe in half?…. I’m never sure when using the IP if it will work the same.
Yes it should work: https://www.365daysofcrockpot.com/how-to-halve-instant-pot-recipes/

Hi! Love your recipes! Made this with regular noodles, but I would like to try with spaghetti squash. Any tips?
Thank you <3
Cindy R says
Ok.. I LOVE this! And so does my husband! I just have one question! My husband likes his noodles a little softer… any suggestions on how to accomplish that?! Would you cook it longer.. or add more water/broth … or both?! Help!!! I LOVE this and plan to make it again… and again.. and again!
I would do a little of both 🙂
Jennifer s Jennings says
This was SO good! Even my picky 8 year old ate it. I used ground turkey and homemade pork stock. Super yummy and I’ll make this again! Thank you, Karen. I love your recipes!
I’m so happy to hear it! We LOVE this one
I came here from Facebook and I wasn’t expecting much because it just sounded too easy. I’ve now added this to my favorites and will definitely make it again and again! Thank you so much for this recipe. I’m new to your site but will be sticking around. Thanks!!!
Awesome! So glad you are here Jill!
Karen makes our dinner 6 out of 7 nights a week! I’d be lost without her as I hate cooking and I’m not creative. My mom found her and shared her site. Mom really DOES know best. 😂 😍
Jeff Winett says
I swear on my whisk, that this dish will be made regularly. It was fantastic. The ground Pork that I found was very lean (5%), and this is the only part I will even think of changing. I am going to try 15% ground beef when I make this again. The Asian flavors were so delicious. True to the way I cook, I prepped the entire recipe in advance. I stopped before laying the noodles and cabbage. I did this early in the day and kept chilled. Before laying the noodles and cabbage, I stirred once again to make sure that nothing was sticking to the pot. All I can say Karen, is that if you have elders in your family, they have to be so proud of what you share for those of us who love cooking. Thank you for this one.
LOL!!!! You are so nice! I love this comment!
Val hurst says
Can you freeze this dish successfully?
I bet it would be *okay* not great when reheated
To freeze, I’d make the recipe up to the part of before adding the pasta and water, etc. Take it out of the freezer and continue with the recipe. If you want to reheat the mixture the easy way, I use the Pot n pot method in the instant pot too.
I made this tonight. The only thing I did differently was to use 1/4 inch wide rice noodles instead of fettuccine. I wasn’t sure if I would have a gloppy mess, but they worked fine. This is definitely a keeper. Thank you!!
Ooooo good to know. I haven’t had success with rice noodles so I’m glad you did.

I want to PIN this recipe. There is some glitch. No way to PIN it. Can you fix this?
I’m not sure the issue. Can you use my pin? https://www.pinterest.com/pin/153896512258652487/
Hi Karen – did you know they now have chopped ginger in the freezer section of grocery stores. It’s frozen in little cubes. Another good item to have on hand.
Can’t wait to try this recipe!
Good to know! Thanks for the tip 🙂

I am looking forward to trying this. I have LOVED almost every recipe of yours that I have tried. I have one “niggle”. I print the recipes I want to try. Yours always have a border which wastes a lot of my ink. Just a suggestion–make them more printer friendly. I just got the IP a few months ago and it has made cooking interesting again (after more than fifty years). Your site is just wonderful. Really enjoyed your son in the video. P.S. Still haven’t discovered what to use in place of “American Cheese”.
Twink Martin says
Velveta….but I still love cheddar for everything
Why not try an app called Cheftap? It is excellent. You can scale your recipe up or down as needed. This way, your recipes are always there. No more sorting paper copies. I have my recipes on both my phone and my tablet. You create your own folders. Eg chicken, Chinese. Sometimes I give it both names, so I can search in either folders. Hope that helps.
Thanks for this suggestion, Carol!!!!. I checked out the app and then downloaded a similar one…my recipe box based on reviews to try. So much easier than printing stuff or dealing with pinterest saves. What a game changer. Thank you!
I use an app called RecipeSage that does the same thing. I can add labels so I can sort on my InstantPot recipes.
I use the Paprika app…it’s great. No more clipping recipies and loosing them!
I will ask about the print border. So glad you are using your IP!!

get the browser app from print friendly. you can then size printout to your liking. I use all the time. regards
