The Kosher Instant Pot cookbook is aimed at home cooks with 52 soups per year



kosher instant pot cookbook


Admittedly, kosher cookbook author Paula Shoyer was late for the Instant Pot game.

The Washington, DC-based kosher cook refused to buy one of the electronic multicookers, largely because she didn’t want to make room for it in her overcrowded kitchen.

When she finally gave in and discovered the groundbreaking methods of the combined pressure cooker and slow cooker, Shoyer was delighted. The device and its use became the subject of her latest cookbook, “Instant Pot Kosher Cookbook” (Sterling Books).

Shoyer had only made three recipes – pea soup, rice, and short ribs – before wondering about the benefits of the Canadian-made multicooker that cooks meals quickly like a pressure cooker on the stove.

“Meat, which usually takes two and a half hours, was so tender,” said Shoyer. “I cook everything with four buttons” – there are a total of six on an instant pot – “and after one use everyone is an expert.”

Then, when Shoyer discovered the Kosher Instant Pot Facebook group (now 14,600 members) commenting on Instant Pot recipes and kosher substitutions, she knew there was a built-in audience for a kosher Instant Pot cookbook.

“There are so many cookbooks in the world that I didn’t want to write a book unless people needed it,” Shoyer said. “The kosher market is pretty saturated too.”

But she had clearly found a new niche. The “Instant Pot Kosher Cookbook” sold out in advance orders for the first time, and a second print was recently completed.

“It clearly fulfills a need,” said Shoyer, who based the book’s 100 new recipes on traditional kosher standards and Israeli favorites. She’s thinking of offering a different version of the cookbook of stove alternatives for each recipe for those who don’t own instant pots.

The multicooker was introduced in 2009 and took kitchens home by storm over the next decade. On Black Friday 2016, around 215,000 units were sold on Amazon, which gave the device cult status. It remains one of the top sellers on Amazon, where most of the instant pots are sold, including to Israelis who have to pay import taxes depending on the model.

The multicooker was developed by Robert Wang, a computer scientist and home cook in Ottowa, Ontario. Wang took advantage of the downsizing of his high tech job to invent a smarter and healthier multicooker than those already on the market.

Combining pressure cooking and slow cooking, the pot offers home cooks a new way to cook rice and make yogurt, brown vegetables for a stew, and steamed vegetables in the same vessel. The army of Instant Pot supporters swears by the device, which uses high-tech sensors to regulate its own temperature.

“This pot gives you a completely different burner and replaces a lot of pots and pans for a 25-year-old who lives in an apartment with a small kitchen,” Shoyer said.

The concept of instant pot cooking has transformed family meals for busy home cooks, especially in the final year of the pandemic when many people cooked more and didn’t necessarily have the patience to mess around in the kitchen.

Shoyer compared the experience of cooking traditional kosher favorites in the Instant Pot to the experience of Jewish immigrants to Israel or the United States who didn’t always have the pots and pans they needed and had to figure out how to put their traditional dishes in the appliance, that they discovered in their new home countries.

The Israelis long used the Wonder Pot, a locally invented pan-shaped Bundt pot that could be used to cook balls and cakes, rice, potatoes and chicken on the stove. This was a viable alternative when many people didn’t have an oven in the country’s harsh years of the 1950s and 1960s. The three-piece aluminum pot is still available in some ultra-orthodox areas and is used by some who do not have a second Passover oven and use the miracle pot as an alternative.

For today’s kosher chef, the Instant Pot, which speeds up the cooking process, is a boon for those who cook the Thanksgiving dinner equivalent every Friday night, Shoyer said.

“Our culture has a need to expand our food as much as possible,” she said. “You can take a small amount of meat and stretch it with ingredients to feed a lot of people. That’s good because we always cook with volume.”

At its core, Shoyer said, the electronic pot is best for soups and stews. Their kosher home cook audience prepares many of these dishes year round, especially for Shabbat and the holidays.

“Who else makes soup 52 weeks a year”, she asked, referring to the typical first course at many Shabbat dinners.

Their Instant Pot Chicken Soup is a Friday night classic, Shoyer said, rich and complex, made from browned vegetables and chicken.

The book’s cover recipe, a beet and quinoa salad that is gluten-free and can be a vegan main course or side dish, was inspired by a similar salad at a Haifa restaurant she visited a few years ago.

“It’s pink, it’s beautiful, and you put the beets and quinoa in the pot, pressurize it, and then naturally let go and it’s done,” she said.

The Instant Pot can also cook desserts. Shoyer contained several recipes made in a double boiler, such as a malabi flan and a cheesecake with an orange and caramel sauce.

Shoyer’s favorite Instant Pot recipes include Spaghetti with Flank Bolognese, a perfect weekday meal with everything including spaghetti cooked in the electronic stove.

“With every recipe, I try to be in a person’s shoes in the kitchen, how much time they are ready to stand in the kitchen,” she explained, stating that she’s going for recipes that use a small number of mixing bowls and measuring cups. “I try to respect the house cook.”

Punctuality: 21 minutes
Printing time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Keys to use: sauteing and pressure
Trigger type: quick release
Pre-preparation: Can be done 2 days in advance

Served 6

3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 medium onion, chopped into ½ inch pieces
4 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
1 pound ground beef
½ pound boned flanks or short ribs, cut into 1/3-inch pieces
½ cup of white wine
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pound of spaghetti
24 ounces marinara sauce
Water to fill the sauce glass
Salt to taste
black pepper to taste

Press sauté and add 2 tablespoons of oil, onions and garlic to the inner pot when the display shows “Hot”. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the ground beef and flanks and cook the meat for 5 minutes, pressing the pieces of meat into the bottom of the pan, stirring occasionally to brown on all sides. Add the wine and cook for 3 minutes to boil off some wine. Add the pepper. Press Cancel.

Take half of the spaghetti and break the strands in half. Rinse under cold water and place each handful in the saucepan, laying the strands in different directions. Repeat for the remaining spaghetti and add them to the saucepan. Drizzle the remaining oil onto the spaghetti strands. Pour the sauce over the pasta. Fill the glass with water and pour it over the pasta. Add a little salt.

Attach the lid and make sure the steam release handle is in the sealing position. Press the push button and set the cooking time to 15 minutes.

When the cooking time is up, turn the steam release handle to the vent position to relieve any remaining pressure. Press Cancel and remove the cover.

Use two forks to separate the strands of spaghetti and to mix the pasta and meat together. Try the pasta. If it’s a little tricky, put the lid back in the pot and let it warm up for 5 minutes. Stir again and serve. Add more salt and pepper if needed.
