We highly recommend topping these with kimchi, too.

Pressure Cooker Korean Chicken Tacos


This sweet-and-spicy braised chicken cooks in just 10 minutes, making it a perfect go-to weeknight dinner option. Make a double batch and eat the leftovers in a grain bowl with sautéed greens and kimchi. Our directions are for the Fagor Multi-Cooker, but you can also cook this in a slow cooker on high for four hours.

Serves 4-6

½ white onion, thinly sliced

2 garlic cloves, grated

2 inch knob of ginger, grated

2 tablespoons gochujang

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon fish sauce

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

1 teaspoon sesame oil

¼ cup tamari

2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs

8 hard or soft corn taco shells

1 cup shredded green cabbage

½ cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves

3 scallions, thinly sliced

1. Combine first 10 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well so the chicken is evenly coated with the marinade. Transfer to the pressure cooker, lock the top, and set to pressure for 10 minutes. It will take about 5 minutes or so to pressurize, then the 10 minute cook time should start.

2. After the 10 minutes are up, let the pressure cooker de pressurize for about 10 more minutes. Carefully open the valve from “pressure” to “steam” (watch out for hot steam), and unlock the top. Transfer the chicken and its juices into a bowl and shred.

3. Spoon into the taco shells and top with cabbage, cilantro, and scallions.
