When life gets really busy, getting dinner on the table every night becomes a challenge. That’s why I’ve rounded up an entire month’s worth of tried and true Instant Pot dump recipes.
Looking for a reason to love your Instant Pot? Whether you just hate spending time in the kitchen or you lack the time, these Instant Pot dump recipes will provide you with plenty of effortless meals all month long!
Instant Pot Dump Recipes Printable Menu
I’ve created a menu for a full month using only Instant Pot dump recipes. I tried to vary the selection from day to day so you don’t end up eating a noodle dish or chicken dish several days in a row.
I’ve also included some soups and vegetarian options to help keep cost down. Feel free to print off the menu. The recipes included in the menu are all hyperlinked in the menu and in the list below the menu.

Looking for Instant Pot Freezer Dump Meals?
I know that for many people, “dump meals” translates to meals that you prep in advance and freeze then toss in the Instant Pot to cook. That was NOT my criteria for these recipes.
However, if those are the type of dump recipes you are looking for, I’ve put together a collection of over 20 Instant Pot Freezer Meals just for you. Every recipe on the list is designed to go from freezer directly to your Instant Pot.
Instant Pot Dump Recipes
You won’t find any recipes in this meal plan that require you to saute ingredients first. I also omitted any recipes that required a lot of slicing and dicing beforehand.
A couple of the recipes do call for time to marinade before cooking, but the marinade had to be simple (e.g. dumping the necessary ingredients into a Ziploc). And, after marinating, you only have to dump the ingredients into the Instant Pot to cook.
