120 Best 5 Ingredient Instant Pot Recipes

Looking for a quick and easy recipe for a busy weeknight? Try one of these 5 Ingredient Instant Pot Recipes. Most of them are dump and start recipes that use ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. Plus, since so few ingredients are required for these recipes, they are very budget friendly.

NOTE: I don’t count salt, pepper, oil ,butter or basic spices (e.g. garlic & onion powder) as ingredients for the purpose of this post because they aren’t main ingredients and everyone has them in their pantry. Also, I don’t include optional ingredients since they are not required.
