75 all-new recipes for Melissa Clark’s signature flavor-forward dishes that can be made in any pressure cooker, multicooker, or Instant Pot®.
“Recipes that are as reliable as they are appealing.”—The Boston Globe
Dinner in an Instant gives home cooks recipes for elevated dinners that never sacrifice convenience. It focuses on what you should make in the pressure cooker (rather than what you can make) because it does it better—faster, more easily, and more flavorfully. These delicious weeknight-friendly and company-worthy recipes include:
• Leek & Artichoke Frittata
• Coconut Curry Chicken
• Duck Confit
• Osso Buco
• Saffron Risotto
• French Onion Soup
• Classic Vanilla Bean Cheesecake 
Here, too, are instructions for making the same dish on both the pressure and slow cooker settings when possible, allowing home cooks flexibility, as well as indications for paleo, gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan recipes. Dinner in an Instant is a new classic and Melissa Clark’s most practical book yet.


  • Every Recipe Has Been Great

    By Adair1029
    I’ve cooked 10 of the recipes in the last three weeks. Each one has been easy to cook and loved by family and friends. Just the other night I saw a sale on short ribs on my way home from work and bought them because I knew I could cook them up relatively quickly- which I never could’ve done without a electric pressure cooker. Lastly, I have several friends who are vegan. A number of the recipes happen to be vegan. They’ve raved about the two dishes I’ve cooked for them.
  • Great book one bug

    Love this book so far. The only problem I've seen is the recipe for Boeuf Bourguignon, which was a major draw for me, doesn't show up in the index. It's in the book, right after Osso Bucco, but because it's not in the index you can't use a short cut link or bookmark the recipe.
