Pressure Cooker Turkey Breast and Gravy

Turkey, much like whole chicken, is tasty and usually frugal but it is also something very easily turned to flavorless sawdust if you aren’t careful.

This turkey breast is moist and tender and beyond easy to make. I probably won’t prepare a turkey breast any other way.

The first time I made a turkey breast in my Instant Pot was a few months ago. Not long after I first got it, in fact. Even with my screw-ups, the end result was so tasty. A couple of hints for you don’t go over about 6 pounds for a 6-quart pressure cooker and make sure it isn’t a weird shape.

If you like golden brown and crispy skin, this isn’t the recipe for you.The skin doesn’t crispy in the least but since none of us eat it I wasn’t concerned. But if you want no muss and no fuss give this a try.
