Ok…here we go!
How To Make Stuffed Peppers In An Instant Pressure Cooker:
I’m going to show you using my recipe…but of course, it’s going to be nearly the same process for whatever stuffed peppers recipe you decide to go with.
Start by adding your oil/butter and turn the Instant Pot on Saute mode.
Chop your onion, add it to the Instant Pot, and saute it for a couple of minutes.
Chop your mushrooms, add them to the Instant Pot, and continue to Saute for another minute. Stir as needed when Sauteing.
Pour the rice into the inner pot and stir on Saute mode for 2-3 minutes.
Add in the chicken stock, a little at a time, scraping the bottom of the pot as you mix. Remove, set aside, and wash out the pot.
Cut the tops off of the peppers, and remove the seeds. Arrange peppers in a pan that will fit in the inner pot.
Pour water into the inner pot, and then add the trivet to the pot.
Scoop stuffing mixture into the peppers. It will have a lot of liquid in it. Add any extra mixture to additional peppers, to the pan the peppers are in, or to an extra pan.
Lower the pan with the peppers into the Instant Pot with a sling(I just used foil as a sling just be careful not to burn yourself).
Set the pressure valve to sealing, and then set for a manual high pressure time of 5 minutes.
At the end of the cooking time, allow for a quick pressure release.
I’m sure there are many ways to make stuffed peppers in an instant pressure cooker…this is just how I do it.
