Can I make boiled potatoes in the Instant Pot?

Sure. Check out this Instant Pot Boiled Potatoes recipe.

Recipe Ingredients

Boiled potatoes - These should be impudently peeled or frozen and of medium size. Since Yukon Golds Potatoes have medium levels of water and are starch-riched, they are highly recommended.

Onion - About ½ Onion is a good substitute that adds golden texture and depth of flavor to the recipe.

Grinder - You will need it for chopping the boiled potatoes and onion. This utensil is time-saving to opt for rather than shredding the ingredients with a knife.

Egg - Should not be boiled. This is the star ingredient that connects, thickens, and makes emulsification of all other ingredients together.

Black Pepper - It adds a spicy flavor to the recipe. If black pepper is not available to you, papaya seeds and grains of paradise are decent second choices to be used.

Corn Starch - Does the job of thickening in this whole setup. About one tbs corn starch is enough to absorb water and thicken the mixture. You can also constitute the corn starch with rice flour or potato starch.

Flour - It glutens the structure. Tread carefully!! Not to add too little flour because it will make the Hash browns fall apart and too runny.

How to make

Make sure you have all the necessary ingredients on your kitchen table.

Hash brown ingredients

Take two boiled potatoes and peel out their skin.

Now shred these potatoes with the help of a grater.

Add an egg.

Next, add one tablespoon of black pepper into the mixture of ingredients.

Now, add one tablespoon salt to it.

Add one tablespoon corn starch.

Last but not least, add four tablespoons of flour to the pot and stir to combine it with the rest of the other five ingredients, and finally, a crumbly mixture is formed!

Using a ring cutter, make round-shaped Hash browns and transfer them to a separate tray. With my recipe for the Hash browns, you will make about 4-5 pieces.

Take the Instant pot and pour ¼ cup of vegetable oil into it.

Now lower down each hash brown into the instant pot. Keep a guard on them, and as soon as they turn golden brown, immediately transfer them into a plate one by one.

Finally, Instant Pot Hash browns are ready to serve. You can serve your guests with this amazing recipe and make them feel wow!

How To Serve

You can serve this recipe with some great dishes like chicken breasts and Instant pot chicken tenderloins.

Enjoy this appetizing recipe with an empty stomach and you would never stop eating until full!

Can I add more vegetables?

It is also possible to include cooked vegetables in the dish, including chopped vegetables, diced peppers, or almost any other delicious vegetable that you love. However, avoid adding too watery vegetables that will not stand up in pressure cookers, like leafy greens or zucchini.
