This recipe is great paired up with saucy meals. Serve it alongside some Instant Pot Butter Chicken for a complete IP meal. It goes perfectly with the rich, flavorful sauce.

Now some may wonder why bother using the IP?

Such things can just as simply be made on your stovetop or in the oven. I can answer with three words:

It’s freakin’ HOT.

I want potatoes but I don’t want a raging inferno in my apartment to get them. Summertime is not the time for cozy warm kitchens. Ask me in December and I may be singing a different tune. ๐Ÿ˜‰

As for August, I’m using my IP.

This yummy potato dish was based off the recipe from the Instant Pot mastermind “This Old Gal” and her Syracuse Salted Potatoes. Her recipe adds a nice blanket of butter to the spuds, which is super delicious, I’m sure. Keeping mine plain lets them play a supporting role to a great curry or roast dinner.

I chop the leftovers into chunks, toss them with olive oil and roast ’em up as hash browns with eggs for breakfast. The options are endless!

    1. I’m loving my pot! Although I didn’t have a crock pot or rice maker so it kind of acts as those also. I will say it is SO useful for things like broth, soup, chili and stews because it’s really cuts down on time (and stirring!). Thanks for sharing your recipe! Salt & vinegar is the best pairing for potatoes. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great long weekend Diane!

  1. Every time I hear about or see a recipe coming from an Instant Pot, I am more and more wanting to buy one. These potatoes look perfectly cooked, I just want to reach out and grab one. So yummy!
