Top 10 Instant Pot Summer One Pot Meals
It’s going to be 93° F here tomorrow. I’m not ready for those hot summer temps. As the weather warms up my desire to cook goes down. But alas, my family still needs dinner every night. If you’re like me here are some summer one pot meals that will help you get through the summer. I love one pot meals and especially when they are made in the Instant Pot. No more turning on the hot stove and heating up your kitchen!
#1: Instant Pot Smoked Sausage Country Boil
A one pot meal with tender red potatoes, sweet corn, fresh green beans and smoked sausage. A perfect summer meal with tons of flavor.
#2: Instant Pot Egg Roll Bowls
The tastiest garlic sesame sauce coats ground beef (or ground chicken or turkey) and is tossed together with cabbage and fried wontons. This recipe is inspired by Chinese egg rolls but it’s given a fresher spin.
#3: Instant Pot Greek Spaghetti
This spaghetti is not what you’re used to! It has a Greek flare with lemon, feta, cucumber, yogurt, tomatoes and more. This is a perfect summer dinner that is bursting with flavor.

Chicken is pressure cooked and then tossed with the best chicken salad dressing to make a fantastic topping for a bed of lettuce, a bun or croissant.

On my instant pot doesn’t have pressure cooker on it
Hi Donna, what kind of Instant pot is it? Is it a Gem? If so that is not a pressure cooker but a slow cooker.
My Instant pot does not have Pressure Cooker on it,but it does have manual on older models,and that is what you use in place of Pressure !
