Instant Pot crispy roasted potatoes are insanely delicious nuggets of crisped golden skins with soft buttery insides~a perfect side dish for any meal!
These Instant Pot crispy roasted potatoes are one of my top reasons for loving the Instant Pot. I can have perfectly crisp & tender potatoes in less than 30 minutes without turning on the oven or heating up a skillet. Since we are a potato loving family, the Instant Pot is now my go-to method for cooking these yummy spuds that taste skillet seared and roasted (but were cooked 100% in the Instant Pot~start to finish).
In two easy steps, the Instant Pot cooks up these yummy spuds. First, the potatoes are crisped up and browned in the pot by using the SAUTE feature. You simply add oil and seasonings, press SAUTE, and throw the potatoes in the pot~which heats up like a skillet. Stir the potatoes as needed (lid is off the pot during this process). Second, when potatoes are crisped, just add a 1/2 cup of liquid and PRESSURE for 7 minutes on high.
Once you brown the potatoes, the rest is hands off. After you put the Instant Pot on pressure cook for 7 minutes, you can run errands, take a nap, whatver you need to do. The pot will turn off when the potatoes are done, and the warm feature will keep them warm until serving time.
These actually taste great the next day just thrown into a skillet with a splash of extra virgin olive oil and sautéed for a few minutes and crisped up again.
If you have an Instant Pot and make these, I’d love to hear how they turn out for you. I make these often to serve with Mississippi Roast and carrots and perfectly roasted whole chicken. Simple and easy comfort food! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
