Garlic Butter and Parmesan Brussel Sprouts Instant Pot Version
For most vegetables I would cook them in the Instant pot on the manual setting (high pressure) for 0 minutes! Yep! zero minutes! This means that it will come to pressure and then immediately be done. And always do a quick release to stop the cooking right away! The only time I have it in the pot for any longer, is if it’s a little tougher veggie, but even then it’s usually just 1 or 2 minutes!
I’ll give a couple of examples:
First up let me show you these delicious, amazing brussels sprouts (No, I’m not even joking, they are my new favorite veggie)
I adapted this to start in the Instant Pot and then finish in a pan (but actually you could saute in the pot, not sure why I didn’t think about that until now). The original recipe comes from my beautiful friend Tiffani Swain.
There are a few ways to put your veggies in the pot.
1. Straight in the pot with the water.
2. On the trivet or in a steamer basket .
3. In a bowl with the water on top of the trivet. This is called Pot in pot (pip) cooking. If you don’t have a steamer basket this is a great option to easily remove all the sprouts after cooking.
Whichever way you choose, you’ll just need a cup of water and the brussel sprouts.
Trim off the ends and if they are pretty big, cut them in half.
Close the lid and seal. Set for 1 minute and you’ll be ready in no time.
You’ll need Garlic, Butter, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese to finish these beautiful veggies.
Have I posted about my awesome salt and pepper box?? I’m not joking when I say this is the first thing I bought for the new kitchen project. I had it sitting on my wish list for a while and as soon as we finished setting a budget and planning, I ordered it from amazon! 🙂 It’s my favorite and you can get one here!
Melt the butter and saute the garlic until fragrant. Add the steamed brussels to the pan and saute for several minutes, stirring frequently. Once done (I usually like a little crispy edges from the saute, but if in a hurry I just take them off after they are completely coated in the yummy butter. delish either way!) sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
we really do love these Garlic Butter and Parmesan Brussel Sprouts Instant Pot Version.
