Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Not all slow cooker chicken tortilla soup recipes are created equally. This one is so good that the first time I made it, I actually hurt myself by having thirds. But I had no regrets about it! It does require an “extra” step: cooking a whole chicken to use both the meat and broth. We did this overnight, then removed the chicken and added remaining ingredients in the morning. Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup | The Foodie Eats

2 Reasons to Use a Whole Chicken

With two little ones at home (and a third on the way), we’re always looking for ways to save a few bucks. Buying whole chickens is a no-brainer for using since they’re usually the cheapest meat at the grocery store.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup | The Foodie Eats

But even more than for saving money, the increased taste factor from using a whole chicken in this soup is the main reason. Sure, you can use chicken breasts and store-bought broth and they’ll work just fine. But the depth of flavor from this method takes this soup to another level.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup | The Foodie Eats

Is it worth the extra step?

I will admit… while developing this recipe, I wondered to myself if I was wasting my time by cooking a whole chicken first. In my head I thought it would be worth it, but I really just didn’t know. Then, after my wife took her first bite, I knew I had made the right decision. She said something like, “Okay, this might be the best thing you’ve ever cooked.” I’ll take it!

Pressure Cooker Bone Broth – 2 Recipes for Chicken and Beef

Pressure Cooker Bone Broth

2 Recipes for Chicken and Beef

Now I know this is not an everyday thing. But trust me… when you have the time, there is no other single better way to take your cooking to the next level than making your own stock. There are a few reasons why I find making pressure cooker bone broth so much better than on the stovetop. First, you will reduce your cook time by more than half. And secondly, none of your stock will evaporate in a pressure cooker, so you get more in the end!

Pressure Cooker Pho

Pressure Cooker Pho | Easy Pho Recipe | Instant Pot Pho | The Foodie Eats

Pressure Cooker Pho (Instant Pot Pho)

I had never even heard of pho until a few years ago. But once I tasted it, I immediately had a new favorite food. I’m not kidding. A great bowl of pho is my favorite food in the whole world. So, for that reason, I was a little reluctant to post a recipe. I have a pretty high standard for pho broth. This pressure cooker pho has all the flavor of an authentic preparation, but in a fraction of the time. Even though this easy pho recipe takes more time than most Instant Pot pho recipes, the depth of flavor that is achieved is worth a few extra minutes.
Pressure Cooker Pho | Easy Pho Recipe | Instant Pot Pho | The Foodie Eats

Easy Pho Recipe – But it Takes a Little Time…

There’s no doubt that my Instant Pot is currently my favorite kitchen tool. I love the versatility and precision that comes with it. But I may be the only person that refuses to sacrifice quality for time’s sake. I would much rather spend a few more minutes and end up with a meal that is amazing than cut corners and just barely enjoy my dinner.

Pressure Cooker Pho | Easy Pho Recipe | Instant Pot Pho | The Foodie Eats

That being said… this recipe will take a while to cook. While the prep is very easy, there’s about 2-hour total cook time. It will take your IP about 20 minutes to come to pressure, then a 60-minute cook time, and finally 30 minutes of natural pressure release. So this is not an everyday type meal. But, when you’re ready for something special, it’s worth every minute!

 

Why Not Splurge a Little?

I’ve prepare this dish using several different choices of meat. And I must say, without a doubt, it’s worth it to spend a few more dollars for filet mignon. The tenderness is just in a league of its own. If you do decide to use filet, I recommend using the thinner end cuts of the tenderloin. Nobody usually wants these for steaks, so they are always available in the grocery store.

Ingredients

  • 2-3 lbs. beef shank
  • 12 cups water
  • 2 inches fresh ginger peeled
  • 1 large yellow onion roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 5 star anise
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 tsp. fennel seed
  • 1/2 tsp. coriander seed
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 lb. filet mignon (or top sirloin) thinly sliced
  • 14 oz. rice noodles
  • 1 small yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. cilantro finely chopped
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Place the following ingredients in pressure cooker and lock lid - beef shank, water, ginger, onion, fish sauce, star anise, cloves, cinnamon, fennel seed, salt, bay leaves.
  2. Set manual time for 60 minutes at high pressure. Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for about 30 minutes, then release all remaining pressure.
  3. Line a colander with cheese cloth and pour broth into stovetop pot to keep hot until ready to serve. Discard all cooked ingredients, since all you will eat is the broth. Feel free to skim as much of the fat from surface as you like. Some fat is good, so don't remove all of it.
  4. Prepare rice noodles according to instructions and set aside.
  5. Place equal amounts of uncooked steak into 4 bowls. Do the same with the noodles. Pour boiling broth over steak (this is what cooks the meat) and allow to sit for a minute or two.
  6. Top each bowl with sliced onions, cilantro, and scallions. Serve immediately!

Recipe Notes

For garnish - use any combination of bean sprouts, limes, jalapeno, basil, mint, hoisin sauce, and Sriracha.

Grandma B’s Pressure Cooker Chicken and Rice

Grandma B’s Pressure Cooker Chicken and Rice

Some of my most vivid memories are attached to food. And I don’t think I’ve ever known a cook as good and my Grandma B. I remember growing up and being amazed at how good even her rice tasted. She is no longer with us, so I can’t ask – but I’m pretty sure this pressure cooker chicken and rice recipe is similar. Even if it isn’t, it sure reminds me of eating in her kitchen after school. And that’s just fine with me.

Pressure Cooker Chicken and Rice | The Foodie Eats

 Few Ingredients. Few steps.

Ya gotta love a recipe that doesn’t require any ingredients or complicated preparation. Every now and then it’s just nice to have something simple that still delivers the delicious. I mean, the toughest part of this pressure cooker chicken and rice is trying to remove the whole chicken from the pressure cooker. Then just remove the meat from the bones while the rice cooks, and add it back. Anyone can do this! Anyone.

Course Soup
Cuisine Southern
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 25 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings 12
Calories 440 kcal
Author The Foodie Eats

Ingredients

  • 4 lb. whole young chicken
  • 2 quarts water
  • 2 cups basmati rice
  • 4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. black pepper separated
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Place whole chicken in Instant Pot breast side up, then add water, salt, and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Lock lid, close vent, and set manual timer for 25 minutes on high pressure.
  2. Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally (will take about 30 minutes). Then remove chicken from pot to a separate bowl. Be careful because it might be falling apart, which is good!
  3. Add lemon juice and rice to broth, then mix well. Lock lid, close vent, and set manual timer for 4 minutes on low pressure.
  4. Meanwhile - remove all the meat from the bones and tear into medium-size pieces. Throw away all the skin and bones.
  5. Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure. (If liquid starts to come out of vent, just close it and wait a minute or two. Sometimes the rice will produce those starchy bubbles.) Then remove lid and add chicken and 1 teaspoon black pepper to pot. Mix well.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I would recommend not covering the rice after it's cooked. This will cause the rice to continue to cook and become mushy.

I’m not exactly sure how this happened. But somehow and some way, this Instant Pot vegan potato soup has a “meaty” flavor. Now, that is not the point – to have food taste like meat. But when eating a strict plant-based diet, I’ll take any meaty flavor I can get! And, additionally, is actually more of a potato-vegetable chowder than a soup.

Recently, my two worlds collided – switching to a plant-based diet meets using the Instant Pot for everything possible. And the first creation is this Instant Pot lentil dal. It is super easy  to make and pretty much fail-proof.

Comfort Food? Well, Yeah! Kinda.

(But not really. Lol!)

When you think of comfort food, I’d be willing to bet that curry and lentils don’t come to mind. But, in my opinion, this dish has some of what comfort food is all about. The flavors are warm and rich. And after eating a bowl, you’re left with that satisfied feeling. Isn’t that pretty much the definition? I believe that every cuisine has comfort food dishes. It’s not just mac-and-cheese and casseroles. Mmmm, casseroles…
