Book Preface

Let’s get one thing out of the way. I am NOT a professional chef. I’m not fancy, I cook with the most basic ingredients (while standing over the stove in sweatpants and messy hair), and if you told me two years ago I’d be writing a cookbook, I’d have checked the calendar to make sure it wasn’t April 1st.

In fact, I’ve had zero professional training—everything I’ve learned was from my Grandma Lil (with a little help from my mother). Grandma Lil was a remarkable and hilarious woman who could have easily headlined among the likes of Jackie Mason and Don Rickles in the Catskills, but in our family, she was famous for her cooking. My grandma never cooked with a recipe—she did it all by eye, memory, and creativity.

Enter me in 2017. I wasn’t happy in my career and needed a way to express my own creativity. Then I discovered the Instant Pot, which was on its way to becoming the “must-have” kitchen appliance. Like so many others, I was at first intimidated by my new magic pot. The idea of locking my food inside, not being able to taste and adjust it as it cooked, was totally alien to how I learned to cook at my grandma’s side. But I took it upon myself to learn the ins and outs of this revolutionary device. Once I had it figured out, I created my first how-to video so that everyone else who felt intimidated by it could see just how easy it is. The next thing I knew, I was developing my own recipes for the Instant Pot and posting personable step-by-step videos for each one on my website, Pressure Luck Cooking. Suddenly I was a full-time recipe creator and blogger. And now you’re reading this book I wrote. Surreal!

But remember, I am NOT a professional. I’m just a nice Jewish boy from Long Island who loves to make delicious, home-cooked meals. So trust me on this one: If I can cook in an Instant Pot, you can too. If you’ve never cooked before but desperately want to make a great meal to impress your family (or yourself), this cookbook’s for you. If you’re a seasoned cook but this is your first foray into pressure cooking, this cookbook’s for you. And if you’re already an Instant Pot pro and just want to dig into fast, easy recipes ranging from light, vegetable-centric dishes to rich and creamy comfort food, from international to down-home favorites, and everything in between, this cookbook’s for you.

I want everyone who reads this book to be able to cook along with me, just like I did beside Grandma Lil. Every recipe in this book has photographs showing you exactly what to do in each step (more than 750 of them). There are no surprises: no fancy or hard-to-find ingredients, no frilly extra steps, nothing even the most reluctant pressure cooker user can’t master in moments. With me, what you see is literally what you get. And if you don’t like an ingredient, just leave it out! This is cooking, not brain surgery—make what you love, and don’t let anyone say you must do otherwise.

Now let’s get started!

So, How Do I Use This Thing?

What I hear most often from people who just bought an Instant Pot is that they’re terrified to use it. Like, to the point of leaving it in the box to gather dust (or become a perch for their cat) because they’d rather stare at it than use it.

And I get it! For some, the thought of pressure cooking is a bit scary. If your last memory of using a pressure cooker is from back in Grandma Lil’s day, you may remember something that looked like a torture device and was liable to blow its lid off, embedding it in the kitchen ceiling. But with today’s modern technology, the Instant Pot has made pressure cooking safe—and fun!

And if your Instant Pot is still in its box because you’re not sure what to cook with it, here’s the scoop. This appliance is a stovetop (with the sauté function) and an oven (when it pressure cooks). It sautés, braises, stews, and even makes yogurt, all in record time. I’m a New Yorker, so I’m always wary when things sound too good to be true (I’ve walked through Times Square enough to know the truth behind those “free comedy” shows), but this is one of the rare exceptions when “too good” is indeed true.

Still not convinced? Here’s a quick summary:
