If you’re like a lot of people, you’re busy and don’t have time for endless amounts of time standing over the stove waiting for your food to cook. These two recipes for making cauliflower fried rice and ground beef in the Instant Pot cut back cooking time and clean up significantly. If you’re meal prepping for the week, double the ingredients and add 2 minutes cooking time. This will give you have plenty to portion out across several meals.

Before we go on, I need to tell you how much I love my Instant Pot – literally love it. And I know you will, too. I use it mostly for it’s electric pressure cooker, slow cooker and saute functions, but there’s more you can do with it. Feel free to comment below with any questions about the Instant Pot.

Back to the recipes. I use pre-riced cauliflower. They are readily available at most supermarkets and are comparable in price to whole heads of cauliflower, minus the effort. Let’s face it, ricing your own cauliflower is time consuming and messy. And like I said, you’re a busy person so let’s make that part of meal prep easier.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Ingredients

  • 2 bags riced cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 large eggs, scrambled
  • pinch of salt
  • cooking spray (canola or coconut oil)
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen pea and carrots
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (or 2 tbsp garlic sauce)
  • 5 scallions, diced, white and green separated
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce (or coconut aminos)

Directions

  1. Set Instant Pot to saute and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Once the display shows Hot, add the egg and cook, turning a few times until set. Set aside.
  3. Add the sesame oil and saute onions, scallion whites, peas and carrots and garlic until soft, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Add the riced cauliflower and soy sauce. Mix, cover, and set Instant Pot to Manual for 10 minutes.
  5. When done, let the pressure release naturally or if using the valve release, increase cook time to 14 minutes.
  6. Remove cover and set Instant Pot to saute. Add cooked eggs and toss to mix. Toss a few more times for 1 minute.
  7. Mix in scallion greens and serve.

Cooked Ground Beef

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • cooking spray (canola or coconut oil)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

  1. Set Instant Pot to saute and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Once the display shows Hot, add the onions and saute until soft, about 2 minutes.

For variation, change the spices. Use taco spice mix or ranch dressing. Optionally substitute ground chicken or turkey.
