    Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore - an easy pressure cooker meal loaded with tender chicken, tomatoes, bell peppers, kale, carrots and sliced mushrooms. A comforting rustic dish that's perfect for busy weeknights with the best hearty and cozy Italian flavors.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 10 minutes
        •    Cook time: 20 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 6

    Ingredients

        •    2-3 tbsps olive oil
        •    6 oz tomato paste
        •    1 tsp dried oregano
        •    1/4 tsp dried thyme
        •    1 cup sliced carrots
        •    1/4 tsp dried rosemary
        •    4 cloves garlic, minced
        •    1 cup sliced mushrooms
        •    4 kalamata olives (Optional)
        •    salt and black pepper to taste
        •    1/4 cup diced red bell peppers
        •    1/2 medium white onion, chopped
        •    6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
        •    1/2 cup chopped kale, stems removed
        •    fresh basil leaves for garnish (Optional)
        •    1 28 oz canned diced tomatoes drained
        •    2 tbsps fresh chopped parsley plus more for serving

    Method

    1. Season chicken with salt and black pepper. Heat olive oil in the Instant Pot and press the SAUTE button.

    2. Sear the chicken until you get a nice brown caramel coating. You may have to work in batches, depending on the size of your Instant Pot. Transfer the chicken to a plate.

    3. Add the inner pot back to the pressure cooker and add more oil, if needed. Saute the garlic, onion, bell peppers, carrots, mushrooms, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, dried basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme and salt and black pepper to taste. Stir to combine.

      Add the chicken back to the pot. Press CANCEL then cover with lid. Turn the valve to SEALING and press PRESSURE COOK HIGH (OR MANUAL - for older models).

    4. Set the timer to 10 minutes. Once the Instant Pot comes to pressure and cooks for 10 minutes, do a QUICK RELEASE. Open the lid carefully and stir in the olives and kale.

    5. OPTIONAL STEP:If you prefer a thicker stew, witch to SAUTE mode and stir in an arrow root starch slurry (or use xanthan gum for low carb) and cook for about 2-3 minutes until the stew bubbles and thickens up.

    6. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, basil leaves and taste and season with additional salt or black pepper, as needed. Serve hot over zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice, pasta or your favorite sides.

    Pan-Seared Sirloin Steak

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 30 minutes
        •    Cook time: 20 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 2

    Ingredients

        •    1 tbsp olive oil
        •    kosher salt, to taste
        •    1 tbsp unsalted butter
        •    freshly ground black pepper, to taste
        •    2 sirloin steaks, about 1 inch (approx. 300gm) thick

    Method

    1. Pat the steak dry with paper towels. Season both sides with salt and let stand at room temperature, 30 minutes to 1 hour, or refrigerate up to 72 hours. (If refrigerating, bring the steak back to room temperature before cooking by resting for 1 hour.) Pat dry with paper towels and season with more salt and pepper. Press the pepper into the steak to adhere.

    2. In a large skillet, melt the butter with the oil over medium-high heat. When the butter foam subsides, add the steak. Sear until a brown crust forms, about 2 minutes per side. Use strong tongs to press the edge of the steak into the pan, rolling and cooking edges until the fat is rendered. Return steak to pan flat-side down, reduce heat to medium, and cook until desired degree of doneness, about 2–2½ minutes for medium rare. For medium rare, the internal temperature should be 125–130°F, internal color should be an opaque, lighter red, and the texture should be just resilient to the touch—droplets of red juice should rise to the surface of the steak. Cooking time will vary based on steak thickness.

    3. Remove the steak from pan and transfer to a cutting board or plate, tent with foil, and rest for 5–20 minutes. This is a good time to make a simple pan sauce, if desired. Internal temperature will increase about 5°F during resting.
