Instant Pot Beef Recipes: One Grocery List, Four Meals

In this busy rush of fall (but really anytime of the year!), we’re trying to find any way to save time. This is where batch cooking comes in. What is batch cooking? It’s practically all your week’s meals completed in one quick afternoon—what could be better? But wait, how about if someone else makes the grocery list and gives you fresh recipes? That’s where we come in; short of doing your grocery shopping, we’re hoping to help set you up for a healthy rush of back-to-school activities and falling temps.
This is our second batch (pun intended) of batch cooking recipes (pork recipes were our delicious, first rendition), both of which use a beloved kitchen appliance, the Instant Pot, though a crockpot could easily be used, too.
Instant Pot Batch Cooking + Recipes
Here’s how it works. You make one huge batch of something; in this case it’s beef brisket.
When the beef brisket is cooking, you prep for the other three meals:
- Shredded Beef with Cabbage
- Cumin Beef Cauliflower Rice Bowls
- Beef & Mushrooms with Cauliflower Potato Mash
Once the brisket is done, you use it in those three meals immediately, or store in the fridge or freezer for later in the week.
Have we convinced you to give batch cooking a try and see how much easier it makes your week? What’s nicer after a busy runaround day than coming home to a meal that is ready, or one that you simply have to toss together with already prepped ingredients?
We’ll be sharing another set of batch cooking recipes and a grocery list, so stay tuned by signing up for our newsletter or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest to get the new recipes as they come out!
