But don’t put away that Instant Pot just yet! You’ll need it again on Tuesday, when you’ll use it to cook a double-batch of rice. That goes withone night, and another. And you’ll use the Instant Pot one last time on Friday, steaming broccoli to serve alongside a nextovered .

Weekly Meal Plan: Herby Shrimp, Gingery Chicken Soup, and Cheesesteak Calzones
This week is a master class in transforming leftovers.
- 2 oz. Parmesan cheese
- 12 Italian sausages (about 3 lb.)
- 2 oz. prosciutto
- 8 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs
- 8 chicken drumsticks
- 1 lb. sirloin steak
- Crusty bread
All you need is ten minutes and an Instant Pot to make this big pot of beans—and you don’t even have to babysit it, because the IP will keep it at a safe temperature for hours after the beans are done. Reserve eight cups of beans and soaking liquid to use this week, and freeze the rest for future bean emergencies.
Yesterday’s eight cups of beans go into tonight’s dinner, which makes enough for 6 servings—refrigerate the leftovers for Thursday. (Swap chicken broth and a squeeze of lemon juice for the recipe’s white wine if you like.) Serve with crusty bread—otherwise all those saucy juices will go to waste.
Weekly Meal Plan: Thyme-Garlic Pork Chops, Yogurt-Braised Chicken, and Fancy Tuna Sandwiches
Pork is better basted in butter, and chicken shines when it's braised in a garlicky, gingery yogurt sauce.
TUESDAY:with Rice and Steamed Green Beans
Tonight you’re cooking a double-batch of Filipino-style soy-and-vinegar chicken, which will nextover for Friday. While that’s simmering, steam the green beans on the stovetop and make a double batch of white rice in the Instant Pot. (That’s right—in addition to all the pressure cooking functions, the IP’s also a pretty sweet little rice cooker.) Pull the leftover chicken meat from the bones, and refrigerate it separately from the extra rice.
Like any stir-fry, tonight’s dinner comes together quickly. Before you turn on the burner, reheat the rice in the microwave or a steamer basket set over simmering water, and make sure you’ve got all your chopping and measuring done.
THURSDAY: Sausage, Greens, and Beans Pasta
These Braised Chicken Thighs Are the Comforting Spring Meal You Need
Add a glass of Italian white wine, and you're all set.
Thanks to Monday’s escarole mixture, tonight’s pasta dinner requires nothing more than cooking some pasta and tossing it with some reheated leftovers. (Hot tip: Before draining your pasta, reserve a half-cup of the pasta-cooking water and use it to loosen the leftovers and make them saucy.)
FRIDAY:with Steamed Broccoli
The soy-scented chicken meat you pulled from the bones on Tuesday replaces the poached chicken in this recipe, which means dinner’s on the table in just about as long as it takes to cook the noodles and steam some broccoli. Got kids who don’t like spicy food? Pass the recipe’s chile oil on the side instead of stirring it into the full dish.
