Filipino Chicken Adobo Recipe

By , February 20, 2014

Submitted by Jessica R.

I basically looked “Balsamic Chicken Thighs” http://instantpot.com/balsamic-chicken-thighs/ for just the COOKING TIMES and used the recipe found here http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/filipino-chicken-adobo-recipe.html.

If you are too lazy to read the links above then you basically need the following ingredients:

Ingredients:

  • 4 -5 lbs. chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp. black peppercorns
  • 3 bay leaves

Instructions:

1) Set your Instant Pot to the Poultry setting and add the chicken and all ingredients. You do not have to saute anything.

2) Close the lid, and cook for 15 minutes.

3) Serve with white Jasmine rice, Calrose white rice or at my house we serve with Nishiki white rice. (You can buy Calrose or Nishiki at Amazon or Asian market).

You can also use chicken breasts but my mom would use a mixture of drumstick, thighs, breasts with bone in it. Unfortunately I do not know the cooking times for this in the instant pot.

Hawaiian Teriyaki Beef Short Ribs

By , November 2, 2013

Submitted by Aaron.

This is a asian-fusion take on a Hawaiian favourite.  You don’t get a lot of beef dishes on the islands so I’ve modified a traditional Shoyu (Soy Sauce) chicken recipe with some additional Asian elements (Korean & Thai) to make some tasty short ribs.

Prep Time: 10 – 15 minutes

Marinating Time: 4 – 24 hours (depending on your tastes)

Cooking Time: Around 30 minutes with Instant Pot Programmable Pressure cooker

Ingredients: 4 servings

  • 4 large beef short ribs
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce (used reduced salt soy sauce for those who have salt intake concerns)
  • 1/2 cup tightly packed brown sugar (use 1/2 cup equivalent of artificial sweetener for those who have diabetic or carbohydrate dietary restrictions)
  • 1 large orange, halved (use a blood orange for a slightly different taste)
  • 1 head of garlic, separated, peeled and crushed (or use more or less to taste.  You can also substitute garlic powder in a pinch)
  • 1 piece of fresh ginger, about the size of 1/2 a deck of cards, peeled, sliced and crushed (or use more or less to taste.  You can also substitute ginger powder in a pinch)
  • 1 bunch of green onions, chopped
  • 2 fresh Thai firecracker peppers, chopped (dried pepper flakes can be used)

OPTIONAL

  • 1/2 tbsp. sesame oil for a Korean style of ribs

Prep:

  1. Mix water, soya sauce and sugar in a large bowl or extra large freezer bag. Stir\mix until the sugar is dissolved. * NOTE: If you’re going to be using a bowl to prepare the marinade and/or to marinate the meat, remember to use a non-reactive material like glass, plastic, etc.
  2. Squeeze the juice from the halved orange in to the mix and stir\mix.
  3. Slice the orange in to pieces and put in the mixture.
  4.  Add the garlic, ginger root, green onions and chilli peppers in the mixture and stir\mix thoroughly.
  5.  Put in the ribs and stir\mix together.
  6.  Marinate to taste, no less than 4 hours (up to 24 hours for better tasting ribs), and stir\mix occasionally.

Cooking:

Heat a small about of oil to medium-high heat in a large skillet and add beef short ribs. Sear for 2-3 minutes on each side. Place beef short ribs in the Instant Pot IP-LUX60 Pressure Cooker and add the liquid mixture. Lock lid in place, choose the meat\stew setting and cook for 30 minutes.  Serve with sticky rice.

Balsamic Chicken Thighs

Oh, this is so delicious and tender.  My husband can’t wait for me to make it again. If you are serving this with Jasmine rice, cook the rice first. Add a couple pats of butter to the rice when cooking.

  • 1/2 teaspoon of Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of minced green onion
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons of EVOO light olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of Balsamic Vinegar (buy the expensive one, it is better)
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup of Cream Sherry wine.

How to Make it:

  1. In a plastic bag, Mix  the basil, salt, pepper, Sherry, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, minced onion, and balsamic vinegar.
  2. Mix it up, then add chicken to the mixture, be sure to cover the chicken in this sauce and set aside.
  3. Set your Instant Pot to Saute, add the olive oil and saute the minced garlic, stirring frequently.
  4. Set your Instant Pot to the Poultry setting, add the chicken and sauce from bag to the existing olive oil and garlic that is already in there.  Close the lid, and cook for 15 minutes.
  5. When serving, sprinkle the chopped cilantro on top for a tasty treat.
  6. Serve with white Jasmine rice and your favorite vegetable.  Your family will ask for more!

  • Add oil, sauté onions until just translucent.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients except cornstarch slurry. Make sure spareribs are submerged in sauce. You can marinate refrigerated in the pot for several hours.
  • Pressure cook on “Stew” for 12 minutes, leave on keep warm for 3 minutes. Release pressure. Check meat for doneness and moisture. If needs more time set timer to “Stew” for a few more minutes.
