  1. Thank you for sharing these recipes! These dishes look amazing! I am thinking about investing in an instant pot. I am from Hong Kong originally and I do miss mommy’s homemade soup. I was wondering if the soup from instant pot taste the same as the one you made from the Chinese clay pot? Thank you!

    1. Hi Iris,

      Thank you for your question 🙂

      You will want to use the saute high mode to boil the soup for 15 – 30 minutes to get the thickness from stovetop.

      Have fun cooking & please take care

  2. Does the recipes work for the 3 quart, mini instant pot? How to adjust settings? I’m looking at particular the chicken and rice recipe.


    1. Hi Sandra

      Hope you had a wonderful New Year & Christmas 🙂
      thank you for your question.

      Our recipes are developed in the 6 quarts and for most of them you will not need to divide the recipe in half (as long as the meat fits)

      For recipes with a lot of liquid such as chili, soups, pasta, congees, stocks…etc, you will want to cut them by half in the 3qt.

      The cooking time will stay the same!

      Please take care & have a wonderful weekend

  3. Hi Amy and Jacky,

    I came across your page while debating whether or not I should buy an instant pot. Your recipes look amazing and I can’t wait to get my hands on one and start cooking.

    Do you update your Chinese recipes often ?

    Thank you!


    1. Hi Jessica,

      thank you so much for your kind words 🙂

      We aim to add at least one Chinese recipe every week or other week.

      Merry Belated Christmas & Please take care!

  4. This is awesome. Thanks for the Chinese recipes. Might be able to make when I’m feeling homesick. I’m Chinese originally from Malaysia. I miss Hainan chicken rice, char siew and many more. Yummy. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it and watching your video.

  5. Hi Amy & Jacky:

    Love your recipes, and I just made the chicken congee over the weekend. Yes, it was very easy & so fast; the congee turned out great! Thanks!
    I am wondering if you have a recipe for hot & sour soup? Would love to try to make that at home.

    1. Hi Kelvin,

      thank you for your kind words and question 🙂

      We don’t have a hot & sour soup yet. Just added it to our long to-make list

      Happy New Year to you and your family

  6. Hi Amy + Jacky, some of the recipes are my favorite, such as the Chinese Steamed Eggs. I love the way you cook, I would like to try to cook the recipes using the pressure cooker.

  7. Hi,
    Thank you so much for all the tested recipes. This is very useful and I can’t wait to try them.
    I’m so looking forward to learn more HK style cooking with Instant Pot, maybe recipes for 蘿蔔牛腩, 豉油雞 (whole chicken), 紅豆沙 more savory dishes and more 糖水.

    You guys are awesome! Keep it up!!


    1. Hi Kat C.,

      Happy New Year to you!!! We have Oxtail stew on our ever-growing to-make list.

      Hopefully we can make a lot more awesome dishes in 2017 🙂

      Have fun cooking

  8. Same as the above commenter, I’m looking for dim sum. Steamed dumplings and the like. I don’t have a basket steamer and wondering if I can use the IP instead.

  9. Hello Any and Jacky,
    In your Chinese/Asian section of recipes, I was hoping to find recipes for the variety of dim sum steamed dumplings tested in IP by steaming function. Some made with rice flour, filled with meat/veg filling (made from scratch), some using store bought wrappers and some for pork bbq buns (using all purpose flour and yeast). Even though one can find recipes on the Internet it is techniques we need for using IP to make them. Thanks.

  10. Do you have a recipe for braised beef, as in the braised beef used in noodle soup?

    Amazing recipes!! Happy I can make my Chinese family something they will like in the Instant Pot!
