Do you not use a trivet in this recipe?
No you do not need a trivet.
when I make Pork schnitzel I prepare a lot ( 20 at a time ) a tub of flower with salt and pepper dip in first, then in a tub of egg wash (eggs with a bit of milk blended ) last in a tub of bread crumbs. they can be frozen as is or I even precook them and then frozen. The conventional method is faster in my case. Prepping each schnitzel is the same yet I use 2 electric skillets to fry 4 at a time, my schnitzel are so large they would not fit in the instant pot. I fry them in sunflower oil at medium heat 3 minutes a side till golden brown. I think my method is faster
I just bought an instant pot and fear the same thing. I too make big batches, and my first two will be cold by the time I do all 12. I think I am going to return it and get an electric skillet like my grandfather always used. (I use a cast iron right now, but I am always off on the oil temp) I was hoping for less oil waste. But this air fry method is definitely not faster, not as crispy, but maybe healthier. And I am not a pressure cooker fan either..as it is usually the morning when I have time to prep food, and so I use a slow cooker. Which is also a lot bigger than the Instant Pot. I wanted to like it, I really did.
Doesn't breading come out like mush?
It's not crispy due to the nature of the Instant Pot, you can choose to finish it with air frying if you desire a crisp crust.
Can I pressure cook pork first before sauteing (pan frying). I am afraid the fried pork may turn soggy atter adding water?
Thank you. How long do you cook chicken?
No chicken is used in this recipe
You say to add water.. HOW MUCH???? I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING!?!?!
Half a cup :]
