Why are so many Instant Pot recipes bland?

Why are so many Instant Pot recipes bland?

Most Instant Pot recipes you see call for too much fluids. The creator of the recipe is simply following a stove-top recipe without making the necessary adaptation.

Most recipes that calls for more than 2 cups of water/broth/etc. for a 6 qt recipe, are bogus because all the meat and veg you put in your Instant Pot will release a lot of fluids. Adding more than 2 cups results in a very watery and bland product. Most of my recipes only use the minimum 1 cup needed to reach pressure.

The exception to this is  my Doukhobor Borshch recipe. It calls for half of the water from the stove-top version.

A good rule of thumb when converting a stove-top recipe to an Instant Pot recipe is to cut the amount of water/broth/etc. in half. And if you are cooking with lots of veg, including tomato, you can get away with adding less than the 1 cup minimum because those items will release a lot of fluids.
