So I made Pad Thai in my Instant Pot Pressure cooker and you need to do it too

I made Pad Thai, well my version of it, be nice, it's just dinner.  I made it in my pressure cooker because I can and because I wanted to see how the noodles would work without soaking at all.  Spoiler alert, they work beautifully.

Ok, here's the quickie, it's a method rather than recipe, there's a video link below to my youtube so you can see what I did.



some oil in bottom
ground pork or chicken or pieces of chicken or beef or whatever protein floats your boat
(in the video link below, I used .75/lb of ground pork, with chicken, I use a HUGE chicken breast and slice it thinly)
sliced onion
crushed garlic
garlic/ginger paste (optional)
pad thai paste
light soy
chili oil (optional)
thinly sliced veggies, anything works, carrots, cabbage
rice noodles
green onion
bean sprouts (I use canned and use half a can in this video)


partially brown the meat in the oil,
add the veggies and garlic and onion and carrots and whatever other veggie you like
add pad thai sauce/paste, soy and chili oil if you like
add 1 1/2 cups water
lay half packet of rice noodles on top

lock and load, 3 minutes high pressure, release immediately
stir the noodled into the meat and veggies
stir, add bean sprouts, green onion, stir and close lid, tightly, and just leave it on warm for TEN minutes

stir, add peanuts, the greens of onions and eat!!  squirt with lime!!

It's quick, it's easy because it's in one pot, it's all good, it's absolutely one of my 'go to' recipes and I hope you like it as much as we do.  I also like that it's infinitely customizable, add what you like, make it vegetarian, use leftover veggies (put them in for the ten minute rest, not the pressure cook) use all the meats, add shrimp, add scrambled egg...  just do it :D

I hope you enjoy,
