Yes! On the shopping list you will find Gluten Free suggestions for any ingredients that might include gluten.
Absolutely! The best part about these meals is that you can customize them to your liking. If you don’t like onions, leave them out! If you REALLY love garlic, add an extra scoop! If you have allergy concerns, adjust as needed!
Simply cross off the ingredients needed for that meal from the printable shopping list and use the empty space to add other groceries you might need to make a different meal. However, might we suggest being adventurous and giving them all a try? You’ll be glad you did!
In general, the cook time will not change. If there is a different cook time for half meals it will be in parentheses next to the original cook time.
Yes, for SOME of the recipes the amount of liquid will change depending on if it is a half or full size meal. This will be clearly stated in the “COOK” instructions. If you are making half meals, always follow the directions in the parenthesis. Example: Add 4 cups (2 cups) chicken broth
When cooking meat, you will typically use a natural release to keep the meat tender. However some recipes and cuts of meat have great results with a quick release. It will clearly state in the recipe which method to use.
To be able to cook the meals from frozen, it is essential that the meals be frozen in a similar size and shape as the pressure cooker pot. Once you have filled your gallon size bags, stand them upright, press out the air, and zip the bag shut. While bag is still in an upright position, use both hands to fold in each bottom corner of the bag to create a more circular bottom. Some of the meals contain bulky ingredients or large pieces of meat. In these instances, the recipe cards will instruct you to freeze the bag of food inside the pressure cooker pot, then remove the bag once it is frozen. This will ensure a perfect fit when it's time to cook. For detailed information and a step by step video of this process, visit our Freezer Meal Upgrade Package.
No special equipment or gadgets are needed in order to prepare, assemble, and freeze your meals. The standard kitchen essentials like knives, cutting boards, can openers, etc, are all you need. We suggest freezing the meals in freezer safe zip top bags and have a few gadgets that we enjoy using for the process (which you can check out here), but they are more for convenience and are not considered essential.
Label bags with a permanent marker. Include the title of the recipe and the date it was assembled. If you prefer to use a sticker label, be sure it is freezer safe to avoid the label falling off the bag once frozen.
DO NOT thaw the meals before cooking them. The joy of Instant Pot freezer meals is that the meals can be cooked straight from the freezer! Cook times provided in the recipe cards are specific to frozen food. If the food is thawed, it will not need the same cook time.
We estimate 3-6 hours to shop for groceries and prepare all the meals. To make prep and assembly time shorter, ask the butcher at your local grocery store if they are able to prepare your meat according to the recipe directions. If that is not an option, cutting the meat and produce one day and assembling it the next is a method many of our customers enjoy.
We offer specific directions for how to prepare the meat in each of the recipes and on the step by step checklist. We have tested MANY ways of preparing meat and have found these cuts to be the best to ensure high quality, tender meat. For video tutorials on how to cut the meat, visit our Freezer Meal Upgrade Package.
The “total cook time” on the recipe includes the time you take the meal from the freezer to the moment it is hot and ready to eat on the table.
The recipes have not been tested in a slow cooker, but will likely do well using this method. We strongly suggest thawing the ingredients overnight in the fridge then cooking them for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
