I have fallen in ❤️ with my Instant Pot and have been creating several recipes with it! If you do not have an Instant Pot, then I highly recommend it!
It has all the functionalities of a crock-pot, only better! The thing I ❤️ most about the Instant Pot is that you can actually sauté foods right inside of the pot, which gives your food a richer flavor, then set it and forget it! If you have to go somewhere, once your food is done cooking, it automatically goes to a warm functionality for up to 10 hours! Plus, your stove and oven stay clean! Yay for Mom!
To make these Instant Pot Crispy Rosemary Roasted Potatoes is very easy. Let me show you how!
How to Make Instant Pot Crispy Rosemary Roasted Potatoes:
- Step one is to scrub your potatoes clean, then cut them in half. I am using small red potatoes. You can use any that you like, but I suggest leaving them in big chunks.
2. Next, put your trivet and collapsible steamer basket in your instant pot. The trivet comes with the Instant Pot.
3. Add 1 cup of water or the minimum amount required by your Instant Pot. I am using the larger 8 quart size which requires 1 cup. Place your potatoes, seal the lid and make sure the valve is on sealing mode.
4. Set your pressure to high pressure for 5 minutes.
5. Once the timer beeps, let it sit for another 10-15 minutes. If your potatoes are in bigger chunks, let it go for 15 minutes, if they are smaller potatoes, you can let them go for 10 minutes. Use an oven mitt to release the remaining pressure.
6. (Below is how the potatoes look once they are steamed). Remove your potatoes and steamer basket carefully, you may need to use a towel or oven mitts to remove the basket.
7. Dump out the water in the Instant Pot into the sink. You no longer need this. Dry your Instant Pot.
8. Add 2 Tablespoons of oil. I used avocado oil, but any oil will do. Then add potatoes cut side down, sprinkle with rosemary and do not touch them for several minutes. After 4 minutes, they will release and you can flip them. If they do not release easily, then give them another minute to brown. The potatoes will easily released once browned. If you try to release them before they are fully browned on that side, they will stick! You can brown on back side too if you like more mushy and crispy potatoes, I just browned the skin side 2-3 minutes.
9. Now you can sprinkle with salt and pepper, toss and serve hot!
There are several variations you can make with this recipe:
- Garlic Rosemary Potatoes
- Bacon Rosemary Potatoes
- Onion, Bell Pepper Rosemary Potatoes
When you sauté, add any of the variations above to your recipe to add different flavors.
Another thing you can do is save the steamed potatoes in the fridge and then toss them in oil and broil them on a baking tray until crispy.
These can be served for brunch and accompanied with Gluten Free Waffles, bacon and eggs.
For dinner, serve these Instant Pot Crispy Rosemary Roasted Potatoes with Cast Iron Grilled Chicken and some steamed broccoli or asparagus.
