Stir fry recipes are one of my very favorite things.

Ever since I discovered how to make my own stir fry sauce and teriyaki sauce, I began to make delicious takeout style recipes like ramen stir fry, cabbage stir fry, and teriyaki vegetables.

Next up was to figure out how to make a stir fry in the instant pot.

Through trial and error I came up with this delicious and simple ramen noodle veggie stir fry that cooks completely in the pressure cooker!

All you need is a few simple ingredients and a few minutes and you will have a quick and tasty lunch or dinner.

Ingredients needed

How to make instant pot stir fry

Step 1: Break the ramen noodles into small chunks as pictured below. Place them in the bottom of the instant pot insert, spreading them out so that as many as possible touch the bottom of the pot.

Step 2: Add the fresh minced garlic, then pour over the vegetable broth and soy sauce. Stir the ramen noodles around and flip them so that they get wet on both sides and coated in the liquid.

Step 3: Add the frozen vegetables over the top of the ramen, spreading them out to cover in an even layer. This is key for the ramen noodles cooking evenly.

Be sure to cover all of the ramen noodles with the frozen vegetables.

Step 4: Place the lid on your instant pot and set to sealing. Turn the instant pot to high pressure for 1 minute.

After the instant pot comes to pressure and counts down the minute, do a quick release.

Once the pin drops, remove the lid and stir the ramen noodles into the vegetables. Stir in the 1 tablespoon of sesame oil to combine.

How to serve

You can serve this as is, or for a little extra flavor, pour on some sweet chili sauce.

This is one of our favorite condiments for serving over stir fry to really bring out all of the flavors.

Simply drizzle a little on top of your instant pot stir fry and enjoy! It’s mildly sweet, a little spicy, and delicious!
