Instant Pot: Our Favorite Asian Recipes!

Coming from a Filipino background, Asian dinners is common at our house. Since we love Asian cuisine so much, I've gathered our favorite Asian meals made in the Instant Pot! We've got Korean, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Japanese and of course, Filipino represented... so get your Instant Pot ready for some meals inspired by the Far East and beyond!

Pork tenderloin and frozen broccoli florets are tossed in a quick teriyaki sauce made with garlic, onions, ginger, soy sauce, chicken broth and brown sugar... which hit the spot! 

It was another "Fake Out Take Out" dinner at our house! This time, I tackled General Tso's Chicken and we loved the crispy chicken & flavorful sauce over steamed jasmine rice. 

Gimme some of that dim sum yum! These Pork, Ginger & Mushroom Shumai Dumplings hit the spot! 

Another "Take Out Fake Out" option with your IP - Indonesian Shrimp Fried Rice! Sweet and salty flavors came through while shrimp and vegetables studded this flavorful rice dish.

A 'fake out' dinner strikes again! This time, General Tso's Pork Stir Fry hit the 
spot with tender pork, spicy sauce and a melange of vegetables. 

Our tastebuds went to the other side of the pond! The ever popular dish, Chicken Tikka Masala,
was amazing in the IP. The blend of spices in a flavorful sauce is worth making!

Instant Pot: Chicken Tikka Masala Rice

Make once, enjoy twice! Transform leftovers into something delicious new, such as 
this Chicken Tikka Masala Rice with leftover Chicken Tikka Masala. 

Instant Pot: Asian Sesame Noodle Salad with Peanuts

Summer is officially here... so kick it off with some Asian flair by making this 
Asian Sesame Noodle Salad! It's light, flavorful and refreshing!

Put some Seoul in your dinner! This IP Korean Beef Bulgogi is flavorful and 
amazing served with rice or even stuffed in tortillas for Korean tacos!

Instant Pot: Vietnamese Style Caramel Chicken

If you aren't familiar with Vietnamese flavors, this is a delicious way to get started! 
This Vietnamese Style Caramel Chicken combines brown sugar, fish sauce, 
garlic, ginger and some red pepper, resulting in major umami! 

Happy National Shrimp Day! To celebrate, I made Sweet & Sour Shrimp 
in the IP, served over crunchy noodles!

We devoured these homemade Vegetable Potstickers in which the dough and
filling were made from scratch! Once made, you could saute or pressure steam in the IP.

Instead of Chinese take out, we opted for Fake Out 
with this Beef & Green Bean stir fry in the IP! The only thing 
missing was the paper container to serve them in and there weren't any leftovers!

With summer around the corner, lighten up your meals with 
some Thai Basil Chicken! It's awesome over rice, a salad or 
eaten nestled in lettuce cups for something guilt-free & flavorful

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

If you need an introduction to Indian cuisine, this dish is a great way to start. Easy, mild and so flavorful, you'll wonder why it took you so long to try it!

Huli Huli Chicken

This dish is a colorful dish from Hawaii and is a great way to incorporate more vegetables!

Here's another fake out take out meal that;s just as easy as picking up the phone and ordering take out lol...

These ribs are not only great for dinner but as an appetizer too!

If you're in need of a filling bowl of comfort, this is it!

By far, my most beloved dish and national dish of the Philippines, this one comes from my mom...

When the cooler weather arrives, this is the dish that warms me to the bone! Rich, succulent and tender, it's amazing how good the Instant Pot makes it!
