Here are the best Instant Pot Freezer Meals to Fill Your Freezer!
There are a few different ways to do meal prep to help organize your life at meal times.
I use 5 different types of meal prep in my life, but my most used method is to prep a recipe, freeze it raw, and cook it in my instant pot during the work week.
Why make Instant Pot Freezer Meals?
Can I cook right from frozen?
Yes, unlike cooking using a slow cooker, you can cook from frozen in your Instant Pot.
But, there are a few things to note:
The cook times will change. See this post on cooking from frozen in your Instant Pot. It has the printable cooking from frozen cheat sheet seen above.
If you are cooking from frozen, you need to be conscious of the container you freeze in. If you freeze your meal in a zip bag, and then freeze flat, your flat square will not fit into your Instant Pot.
How do I prep Instant Pot Freezer Meals?
First, you want to label your containers. You will 100% forget what your meals are once they freeze.
Next, you simply assemble according to the freezer prep friendly recipe. Not all recipes can be made like this. Not everything freezes well.
Remove as much air as possible. You can use this non vacuum sealer method to really get that air out well.
For most efficient storage. Lay flat and allow it to freeze.
My personal preference is to allow the meal to thaw before cooking, then just dump it in and set the pressure time!
