If you’ve been having trouble making Instant Pot popcorn (yes, it can do that, too!), this video will show you how I do it and hopefully will give you some good tips so you can be a successful popcorn popper!
The recipe I use is very simple:
- 3 tbsp of olive oil (you could probably use any high heat oil)
- 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels (I happen to be using America’s Best White Popcorn, but any kind should do)
- 3 tbsp of butter and 1/2 tsp of salt for flavoring (substitute whatever you like, or none at all)
I use an Instant Pot Ultra, but the results should be the same across the different models, and I suspect across the different sizes, as well.
Note: While I used an Instant Pot glass lid in the video, you don’t need one…but you do need some sort of lid, or you’ll have popcorn flying all over your kitchen! 😁 The regular lid will do fine, but there’s no need to lock it down.
