Deviled Carrots in an Instant Pot® - www.instantlydelicious.com

A friend recently dropped off a large bowl of beautiful carrots from her garden.  She was headed out of town and knew I would be able to use them.  I am so glad she did!  I have been wanting to try ​Deviled Carrots in the Instant Pot® ​almost since I bought my pressure cooker.
Deviled Carrots ​are a holiday dish in my family.  Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Fourth of July (kidding!) – we serve this as a side. The recipe came from my grandmother and uses an entire stick of butter.  While I love the recipe as is, I had to lighten it up a little for a weeknight dinner. The “deviled” comes from the hot sauce and dried mustard.  The heat is perfectly balanced by the sweet of brown sugar and the carrots.  If you are not a fan of cooked carrots, you should probably look elsewhere. There should be no crunch left in the carrots, and the pressure cooker helps you get this holiday-worthy side on the table in a few minutes.
Deviled Carrots
​Serves 4

1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into quarters (my carrots were small so I neither peeled or cut them)
​1/2 cup water
​2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar
​few dashes of hot sauce (to taste)
​1/4 teaspoon salt
​1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dry mustard powder


1. Place carrots and water into the Instant Pot®. Set to manual-high pressure for 1 minute, making sure the vent is in the sealing position. When finished, set the valve to venting to remove pressure.  Immediately drain. Set aside.

2. Set the Instant Pot® to saute. Melt butter.  Add the brown sugar, hot sauce, dry mustard, salt and pepper.  Stir to combine.  Return carrots to the pot and saute for 2-3 minute, to coat and finish cooking the carrots.  Serve with a garnish of fresh thyme.
