The chicken is so tender that it melts in your mouth. It’s seasoned with red pepper flakes and garlic, and it’s perfectly paired with the sweet and sour sauce. This recipe is a hit with the whole family and makes a great meal for dinner or a light lunch.

To make this Instant Pot General Tso Chicken, you’ll need some cubed chicken breast and a few simple ingredients. This recipe will only take you a few minutes to prepare and is sure to become your go-to for busy weeknights.

First, saute the chicken in a hot pan on high heat for a couple of minutes until golden on all sides. This will help to cook the outside of the chicken before you add it to your Instant Pot.

While the chicken is cooking, combine the rest of your sauce ingredients together in a bowl. Once the chicken is done, add it to the sauce in your Instant Pot and mix well. You’ll want to de-glaze the bottom of your pot very well so that you don’t have any bits and crumbs stuck at the bottom.

Instant Pot Sweet & Sour Pork

Sweet and sour pork is a must have in every Chinese restaurant menu, and you can easily make your own at home with this quick and easy recipe. The sauce is made with simple ingredients, and you can serve it over steamed white rice or noodles.

To make this Instant Pot recipe, start by preparing the meat. Cut the meat into bite-size pieces and marinate in the ingredients listed above in the “For Flash Marinating” section of the recipe. Then, fry the meat in a hot pan until crispy.

Once the meat is done, remove it from the pan and set aside to cool. Next, combine the remaining ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl. Mix well to incorporate all of the ingredients.

Add all of the ingredients into the pot, starting with the pork. Stir the pork to coat it in the sauce.

When the pork is done, add the pineapple and red and green bell peppers. Simmer until the vegetables are soft, 6 to 7 minutes.

For extra flavor, add a dash of hot sauce. This will help balance the sweetness in the sauce.

If you’d like to thicken the sauce, you can also add a slurry of cornstarch and water to your recipe. This will give it a glossy, rich appearance and will keep the pork from sticking to each other as it’s cooked.

You can serve this recipe over steamed white rice or udon noodles. If you’re making a big batch of this sauce, you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Preparing this Instant Pot recipe is an ideal way to save money on takeout meals! It’s also a great way to cook up a delicious meal on a busy night.

During the pressure cooking process, it’s important to use the manual setting for high heat. This will result in a perfectly tender pork.

Then, when the pork is finished, release the remaining pressure by moving the valve from sealing to venting position. Allow the pork to rest for about 5 minutes before serving.

Instant Pot Sweet & Sour Beef

A twist on the traditional Chinese takeout favorite, this Instant Pot version tastes just as good as you’ll find in restaurants. This recipe is also a great way to get more veggies into your diet, and it takes less than 30 minutes to make!

You’ll want to use a tender cut of beef for this dish. It should be sliced very thin against the grain, no more than 1/4 inch thick.

This sauce will be a perfect marinade for your chicken, but you can also try it as a dip for appetizers! A bold blend of fruity mango, lemon, and ginger, this sweet and sour sauce is versatile enough to be used in a variety of dishes.

Add all the ingredients to your Instant Pot and cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. After the cooking time is up, do a quick release to let the remaining pressure out.

Then, add the red pepper, broccoli, and green onions to the pot and stir well. Replace the lid and let it sit for 5 minutes, this will help slightly steam the vegetables.

Once everything is tender, serve the dish over rice. Garnish with sesame seeds, and enjoy!

This delicious dish is a great option for those who are trying to avoid too much oil in their diet. It’s also a perfect weeknight dinner!

You can make this recipe in any kind of pressure cooker, but you’ll want to use a low-sodium chicken broth for best results. You can also use organic chicken if you prefer.

To prepare the sauce, you’ll need rice vinegar, lite soy sauce, brown sugar, water, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes. You can also mix a corn starch slurry into the sauce to thicken it, if desired.

For an extra kick of flavor, you can use a few chilies instead of scallions. You can even add a little honey if you prefer a sweeter sauce.

To prepare the beef, you’ll need to sear it on both sides in your Instant Pot. This will help it to cook through and keep it very tender. Once it’s cooked, you’ll add the rest of the sauce to your Instant Pot and cook for 10 minutes. Once the beef is cooked, you can depressurize your Instant Pot and garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.

Instant Pot Sweet & Sour Shrimp

If you love PF Chang’s sweet and sour shrimp, this healthy copycat recipe is the perfect quick dinner for a busy weeknight. It’s easy to make in the instant pot and can be served with a side of rice. It’s also a great option for lunch or as an appetizer.

The shrimp are tossed in the sweet and sour sauce and served in lettuce wraps. You can use frozen shrimp if you want to save time, but they’ll need to thaw before they’re cooked.

This recipe can also be served as a dip or marinade for chicken or fish. It’s a quick and delicious meal that’s sure to impress your friends and family.

To start, preheat your Instant Pot over the Saute function. Add the oil if you have one and heat it until shimmering.

Stir in the ginger and garlic, then saute for 30 seconds or until aromatic. Mix in the remaining ingredients, then scrape up any bits that may have formed on the bottom of the pan.

For a healthier alternative, use a low-fat yogurt to keep this dish light. You can also add a sprinkle of fresh basil for extra flavor.

If you’re serving this dish with rice, I recommend making jasmine rice in the instant pot. It’s lighter than white rice and pairs perfectly with the sweet and sour flavors of the dish.

You can also serve the shrimp and their sauce over steamed white rice, or as a topping for a salad. Either way, you’ll be happy you made this meal in your instant pot!

The best part about this recipe is that it’s ready in less than 15 minutes. Plus, you can make all of your prep work in advance so that it’s easy to get this dinner on the table when you’re in a pinch!
