The latest entry in the growing Instant Pot canon comes from recipe developer and Sarcastic Cooking food blogger Bundalo, who offers 75 options for time-pressed home cooks. Virtually all the recipes can be prepped and added to the device in a couple of minutes, and none of them require hard-to-source ingredients. Even for recipes that call for the slow cooking setting, prep time is quick: prepping the Chicago Polish Sausages takes four minutes (three hours to cook), and the French onion cheeseburger sliders can be prepped in 12 minutes (with four hours to cook). The majority of the dishes, however, can be finished in less than 20 minutes, including green chili macaroni and pimiento cheese, Korean BBQ beef lettuce wraps, pineapple buffalo chicken wings, and lentil-mushroom Bolognese. Bundalo’s friendly tone and introduction to each recipe helps readers manage expectations, not just in terms of time and techniques required (often minimal), but what they can expect the finished dish to look and taste like. This is a solid reference for owners of the popular kitchen appliance. (Apr.)
