10 Yummy Instant Pot Filipino Recipes

Looking for Instant Pot Filipino Recipes? We have 10 of the yummiest Filipino food you can easily cook in your Instant Pot pressure cooker. From soups to stews to porridge and coming very soon are Filipino desserts!

Cooking Filipino recipes in an Instant Pot pressure cooker not only makes the process of tenderizing meat faster but also enables you to skip babysitting the cooking process like how you would normally do if you cook on a traditional stovetop. It’s like a slow-cooker where you dump the ingredients in the pot then come back when it’s done cooking except it cooks fast.

As a guide, most of these Instant Pot Filipino Recipes recipes require you to saute your aromatics (ex. garlic, onion, ginger, etc.) first followed by dumping the ingredients with the sauce to pressure cook then followed by pressure cooking the vegetables separately so they wouldn’t be too mushy. All the cooking will be done in the Instant Pot. In some of the recipes, you can also just dump all the ingredients in the pot to cook altogether like the Arroz Caldo and the Adobo. Searing the meat is also optional, I usually skip it.
