It’s tough to pass up those quick take-out meals — orange chicken from Panda Express, butter chicken from your favorite Indian restaurant, Mongolian beef from the Chinese restaurant down the street. But just search with your favorite takeout recipe name and add the phrase “Instant Pot” — you’ll find simple and quick recipes for all of them. (The butter chicken recipe from Dallas food blogger Urvashi Pitre became so popular she was written up in the New Yorker.)

Here’s a recipe tip: Search for the recipe you want along with the name of your Instant Pot model. Mine’s a Duo 60 Plus, and some recipes written for earlier models had me hunting for the “manual” button when mine had renamed it “pressure cook.”
