20 Frugal Instant Pot Meals (Pressure Cooking)

20 Frugal Instant Pot Meals (Pressure Cooking) chicken beef beans meatless


I love my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker and I know many of you do, too. Frugal Instant Pot meals are definitely something important as we can always use cheap dinner ideas to help our budget.

I love using my Instant Pot for pressure cooking and steaming most often. You can also use it as a slow cooker and several other things, but for this post, I am focusing on the pressure cooker function for easy dinners.

I have gathered the most frugal IP meals I could find. They are conveniently compiled here for you to enjoy and add to your meal plan. There are twenty meals total, so enough for a month, excluding weekends.

I’ve included chicken, beef (including -but not limited to- ground beef), beans, and meatless options. The best part is that they are all simple one-pot dishes!

  1. Thanks Clarissa, I’m always looking for recipes for pressure cooking, but I tend to fall back on my old favourites, mince and onion with mashed potatoes usually.
    I need to get out of the rut and try something new.
