Instant Pot Comfort Meals

If you’re looking for comfort meals, I have lots of them in this February Meal Plan. You’ll find comforting dishes like Chicken and Rice, Pot Roast, Meat Loaf, and Chicken and Dumplings. Each of these recipes is quick, easy, and meant to warm you up on these wintry days of February.

Chicken and Dumplings

Instant Pot Sandwiches

The Instant Pot is great for making large batches of meat that can be used in some amazing sandwiches. From recipes for Turkey and Chicken, to recipes for Ham and Beef. There are so many great recipes that can be used to build some wonderfully delicious sandwiches.

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Use my Instant Pot Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork recipe to make the most amazing pulled pork sandwiches. This recipe only requires four ingredients, is super easy to make, and comes out so tender and delicious. Mix the pork with your favorite BBQ sauce and serve on a large hamburger bun with pickles and sliced onions. You’ll have the most perfect pulled pork sandwiches ever!

Instant Pot Valentines Day Recipes

I always like to include special recipes for any special days during the month. This month, we’ll be celebrating Valentines Day. So, I included a wonderful Beef Bourguignon recipe to help you celebrate that day with your significant other over a wonderful meal. If you’re looking for a pasta dish to serve for Valentines Day instead, I have some great ones.

Tuscan Chicken Pasta

I have an extra delicious pasta recipe to help you celebrate those special days with a special person. My Instant Pot Tuscan Chicken Pasta is not only outstanding, but it is super simple to make.

Instant Pot Side Dishes

Every meal needs some delicious side dishes to go along with it. And I always include plenty of Instant Pot sides for you to choose from in my meal plans. For instance, my Dr. Pepper Pulled pork is outstanding served with my Instant Pot Potato Salad. Here are some of the sides that you can expect to find in this February Meal Plan.

Mac & Cheese

My Instant Pot Mac & Cheese is phenomenal. I use a special blend of four kinds of cheese that gives this mac and cheese a super creamy texture and a flavor that pops. If you’re looking for a perfect comforting side dish to go with your comfort meal, this creamy pasta side is a perfect choice.
