How to Cook an Acorn Squash in an Instant Pot in Six Minutes or Less!

Stuffed acorn squash is one of my favorite fall dinner meals. After a few failed attempts, I discovered the trick to having the stuffing and the squash cooked equally in the oven (I can’t be the only person who dried out/singed the stuffing because the dense winter squash took longer to cook than the stuffing inside it, am I? ) is to pre bake the squash by itself for an half an hour or more before stuffing and baking the squash per the directions in the recipe I’m following.

Since my dinner meal planning usually goes along the lines of, “it’s dinner time and I need to make food immediately” I rarely cooked acorn squash in any way, shape, or form because of that pesky house long baking time.

That is until one kitchen experiment later, I now know I can pressure cook a hard acorn squash in 5 to 10 minutes. Woo hoo! Acorn squash for everyone!
