20 Instant Pot Dump Dinner Recipes

What are Dump Dinners?

Dump Dinners are meals that you dump everything into one pot and press cook. Originally Dump Dinners were created for the Crock Pot, but here at The Holy Mess we are a bit Instant Pot obsessed because it’s so much faster than the slow cooker.

These pressure cooker dump recipes can be made right before dinner or they can be used for Meal Prep with your Instant Pot.

Instant Pot Meal Prep Recipes

Dump Dinners can be made fresh and they also work amazingly well frozen. I’ve been freezer cooking for years and have been blown away by how it’s even easier with Instant Pot meals because you can cook foods right from frozen so there is no need to thaw.

I’ve found that I can so much more easily stick to a healthy diet when I have healthy instant pot meals like these prepped in advance and ready to go.

Use these recipes to make a delicious, easy dinner for tonight, or try creating a few at one time and freezing for later.

Note: A few of these recipes do require one additional step, like browning the ground beef, but his can be done right in the Instant Pot and then you dump in everything else.

    • Cabbage Soup by Whole Some Yum – A hearty, healthy cabbage soup with ground beef.
    • Healthier Egg Roll in a Bowl by So Very Blessed – Tastes just like egg roll filling. This one does require browning the ground beef first, but the rest gets dumped in and cooks in minutes.

    • Swiss Chicken by Wonder Mom Wannabe – Chicken breasts topped with cheese and stuffing mix.
