How To Use The Instant Pot Sous Vide Function
Fill the insert pot to the halfway mark with water. Press Sous vide button.
1
Set the temperature using the knob or the +/- buttons, depending on the model of Instant Pot you own.
2
Set the cooking time in the same fashion, using either the knob or +/- buttons, depending on your model.
3
It will take some time for the water to heat up. I recommend double-checking the temperature with a thermometer to be sure it is accurate.
4
Add the food to a high-quality freezer bag. Leave one inch unzipped. Lower into water, allowing the water pressure to force air out of the bag.
5
Zip the bag completely. The bag should be tight against the food, with no air around the food.
6
Use tongs to lower bag into the hot water bath. Close lid and allow cook time to pass.
7
After checking internal temperature for doneness, remove from water and discard bag.
8
For meat, you can “reverse sear” to brown the outside. I use a cast iron pan for this, but you could also use your Instant Pot on Sauté.
