Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter (divided)
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 2 ropes kielbasa sliced
  • 2 boxes pierogi frozen
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 1/2 cups cheddar cheese shredded

Instructions

  • Hit SAUTE on the Instant Pot, and when it reads Hot, add 1 tablespoon butter, chopped onions and kielbasa
  • Cook until onions are slightly soft, then hit CANCEL
  • Add frozen pierogi over kielbasa, then pour in water, and add remaining butter on top
  • Place lid on pressure cooker, make sure vent is set to Sealing position, and hit PRESSURE COOK for 1 minute
  • Pot will take a few minutes to reach pressure, then cook for 1 minute. Do a quick release, and when pin drops, remove lid, and hit CANCEL
  • Pour in the frozen peas and heavy cream, then hit SAUTE and add cheese, 1 cup at a time, stirring VERY gently
  • When liquid starts bubbling, hit CANCEL to turn pot off, and serve. Optional -- To help cool down, using hot mitts, carefully lift the inner pot out and pour contents into lightly greased casserole dish.
  • Liquid will thicken as casserole cools. To make a baked casserole, layer more cheddar cheese with the pierogi and kielbasa, top with additional cheese, and broil in oven until top is crispy

Notes

Recipe was made in a 6 quart Instant Pot electric pressure cooker. More liquid is needed if using an 8 quart.
