The Instant Pot is all about convenience. It’s the tool you turn to over and over again in the kitchen when you don’t have more than 30 minutes to prepare a meal, or when you’re looking for something that is hands-off and can cook while you’re doing other things. This rings true for whatever kind of diet or lifestyle you live (unless you only eat raw food, then I can’t help you there).

And when it comes to low-carb dinner ideas, there are plenty of great options. Here are 10 of our best low-carb Instant Pot recipes. We have a feeling you’ll want to keep this roundup close by, as you’ll find yourself leaning on the recipes to help get a easy, satisfying meal on the table, weeknight after weeknight.
