By :Cooking Under Pressure Cookbook by Matt Pelton
Print Recipe
Strawberry rhubarb is one of my favorite flavor combinations for dessert. It won’t get as crispy as doing it in the oven, but it cooks a whole lot faster.

Instructions
  1. Mix the strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, and flour together in a bowl. Stir until all the flour is incorporated. Let it stand.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the crumble ingredients together until well incorporated.
  3. Set the Instant Pot to sauté and add the water. Let it heat until boiling. Add the strawberry and rhubarb mixture on top of the water. In your hand, take a handful of the crumble, squeeze it together until packed, and crumble it with your fingers over the top of the strawberry mixture.
  4. Close the lid, cook on manual high pressure for 25 minutes. Quick pressure release, open the lid, and let it stand for fifteen minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

    I like this method of cooking rhurbarb and strawberries (or other fruit you might choose to mix in) but forget the topping. The topping melted into the rest of the mixture, sank to the bottom, was unattrctive and didn’t add anything to the dish.

    I followed the directions but the it “burned”. The error message “burn” came on the readout. I was not able to continue cooking. I had to transfer to another pan and cook in oven.

    I made this for the second time, leaving out the crumble. Highly recommend not to use the quick release method, but to either natural release or wait at least 10-15 minutes before quick release. I had alot of liquid come out and it was sticky, messy. However, I like the end product for mixing with ice cream, yogurt or over pound cake!

    As another reviewer posted, the recipe does not work when followed to the letter. I also experienced a ‘burn’ message and had to transfer the stuff to a casserole and finish in the oven. The good news is that the Instant Pot’s sensors are sensitive enough to catch the problem.
    I will try decreasing the flour and increasing the water to see if that makes the tecipe workable.

    I think you forgot to add the oatmeal to the topping ingredients list… that is kind of the point of it being called a crisp.. they always have an oatmeal topping and you can even see it in the picture you posted. Hope this might help some people out who are attempting to make this recipe.

    Technique must change for cooking in an instant pot. You need a minimum of 1 1/2 cup water for 6L and 2 cups for 8 L to make enough steam for any recipe. To make this without adding all of the water to the recipe itself, you must use an insert (possibly a trivet underneathnit) to prevent getting the burn message. I have an 8L model and was able to find disposable aluminum pan inserts, but was only able to fit 1/2 of recipe in it because it was not tall enough. It did turn out delicious though.

    Bottom of the instant pot should be greased prior to adding water, otherwise it will burn before it even reaches high pressure. Recipe calls for waaaay too much sugar. I cut the white sugar by half, and it was still too sweet.

    These instructions are so vague. I would not suggest this to anyone. I just wasted my fresh grown rhubarb for this :((

    Tried this for my wife, but felt it didn’t turn out like it should. Came back and reviewed the entire page for an example picture only to see what they have posted.
