The Paleo AIP Instant Pot® Cookbook + a BBQ Pulled Chicken Recipe

The AIP Instant Pot Cookbook

“Life is like a pressure cooker. Sometimes you’ve gotta’ let off a little steam to keep from blowing your top.” – Susan Gale

 In the beginning

Two years ago, David bought me an extremely large Fissler pressure cooker. (Size matters to David!) I had no idea at the time just how it would change my life.

And, if you are one of those people who are a little freaked out at the thought of all that pressure building in a sealed pot on your stove-top; well – I get it. The first couple of times I used my pressure cooker, I was a little nervous, too. But, no more.

Initially, my old-fashioned-but-new stovetop pressure cooker was used to make bone broth. Until that time, I had been making my bone broth in the traditional way – long, slow cooking on the stovetop. And, it was always a bit of a mission. We have a gas cook-top and even the idea of leaving a small flame going always worried me.

Making bone broth

So, the first thing my pressure cooker changed was my bone broth. Instead of a 24 – 48 hour process, I can now have bone broth ready in under 3 hours. Guess what? – I make a lot more bone broth these days! I loosely follow the Zenbelly approach to my pressure cooker bone broth.

Slow Cooker vs Pressure Cooker

Not exactly sure what the difference is between a slow cooker and a pressure cooker? – As the term slow cooker implies, a slow cooker cooks food very slowly, usually taking around 8 hours or so to cook a meal. It’s the set-and-forget option for those who are racing out the door to work. A pressure cooker, on the other hand, cooks food extremely quickly. In a matter of a few minutes you can prepare a similar result to that of a slow cooker, and with all the flavour, too.

Once upon a time, I had a slow cooker. But, it just gathered dust on my benchtop – so, I gave it away. Not so my beloved pressure cooker!

With a pressure cooker, you can be completely unprepared for dinner after a full day out of the house. You can throw a piece of beef, lamb, chicken or pork into the pot with some veggies, herbs and broth and eat a fantastic and nourishing meal less than an hour later. Can’t do that with a slow cooker.

What’s an Instant Pot®?

The Instant Pot is a multi-cooker that has taken the AIP community by storm! It is a single electrical appliance that does the job of a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, sauté/browning pan, and warming pot all in one. And, seasoned AIPers rave about just how fabulous it is.

Impassioned intrigued by the Instapot that I bought one yesterday. As it happens, I just is as it demonstrated on a tv show the day before. I haven’t even opened the box yet, but I am looking forward to learning how to use it in the coming months.

Oh! – how exciting! Do let me know what you think… I’m hanging out for the day they land on the shelves here.
