Note: This recipe is for a precooked ham. I buy those all the time to save time. They still take about 2 hours to cook in the oven. That is a long time that you need to plan for before eating dinner. I never have two hours unless it is the weekend but I often crave ham so I figured out how to cook a ham in the pressure cooker.
It is actually very easy. You will need the following items.
Optional Potatoes and herbs if you want to cook your meal together.
1. If you are cooking your potatoes with your ham. The put in the potatoes first.
2. Pour in the 1 cup of water (Whether you have potatoes or veggies or not.)
3. Place a large sheet of foil on your counter (It must be big enough to wrap your ham)
4. Put your ham in the foil. Do not wrap the top. You will leave it open to pour in your sugar and pineapple mixture once it is in the pressure cooker.
5. Mix the packet ingredients or the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg with 1/2 cup of the pineapple juice from the can of pineapple. You can use the pineapples later or put them on the ham in the pressure cooker. Our kids like their pineapples not cooked with their ham. I like mine cooked so I do half and half.
7. Place the foil wrapped ham on top of the sling
8. Make sure the foil will contain the liquid you are about to add.
9. Pour in the liquid mixture.
10. Close the Foil
11. Shut the Pressure cooker
12. Turn it to 10 minutes for your pre-cooked ham that is 6-7 lbs
13. Let the pressure release when it is done
14. Use your mitts to take off the top
15. Unwrap your ham and let it cool
I do this during the week so I can use the ham to make other recipes. These are some of my favorite recipes with ham.

Ever just get that craving for something sweet late at night but you don’t want to spend the time making something (or eat so many calories late at night)? Me too! Some of you know that I love my Instapot, mostly for easy weeknight dinners, but as I have recently discovered it’s easy to make super awesome desserts in it too!

I love corned beef. I not sure when and where it happened, but it did. I have a clue that it happened on a plate in NYC. I had my first Reuben. The flavors overwhelmed my lips in bliss. I still order a Reuben, and now I make them at home. That is why I wanted a quick Pressure Cooker Corned Beef Recipe.
I always thought that this was an Irish dish, the corned beef. It turns out it is an Irish American dish. The Irish Americans used corned beef instead of bacon when it is wasn’t available. I recently visited Ireland, and there wasn’t corned beef in abundance. You can see what I ate while there in my post best restaurants is in Ireland.
I was so inspired by the Irish it was one of the best places I have ever visited. I would go back in a heartbeat. If you like Irish food, I have several recipes you can select from:

I also have a husband who eats Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and Egg-free Instapot Recipes. That means I have to cook things he can eat and also please the three offsprings. We all know finding meals that are healthy, tasty, and kid approved is like finding a four leaf clover is the dessert. I must be lucky because of my kids like this simple Instant Pot Salmon Recipe.

Do you come home or are you home and you realize you forgot about dinner. You realize you indeed are incharge of making it. You are like me and you buy stuff when it is on sale. You know that the ultimate list of frugal tips says buy low and stock up. You even know what to stock up on and when. If you do not read our stock up list to help you out. I even have tips of how to organize your stockpile. I find that know how to save on fruits and vegetables saves me as much money as knowing when to buy meats. That brings me to my Healthy Tilapia Recipes in the Pressure Cooker XL.
I saw a sale where it was buy one bag and then get one free. They were two pound bags and they were frozen. I paid $12.00 for the two bags. I knew I could get three meals out of the $12.00.
The items in this recipe are stables in my home. I always have garlic, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. The rest of the ingredients are optional. The tilapia fish is a mild fish so it will take on the flavor of what you add to it.
I made this recipe using foil but I could have just put the fish on the steamer basket if I wasn’t cooking the entire two pound bag. I usually do not cook that much but I made dinner for that night and then I want the rest of the fish for taco’s the next day for lunch.
