Frozen Turkey Breast in Instant pot – how to?

Frozen boneless turkey breast can be cooked in IP as well. What I do differently is, I skip the sautéing and go straight to pressure cooking. In addition, I would cook on high pressure for at least 50 minutes. With natural release at the end. Please note, the larger the turkey breast cut/roll, the more time it cooks.

Cuisine European
Servings 6 people


  • 500 g boneless turkey breast (roll)
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup water for pressure cooking


  • In a small mixing bowl add vegetable oil and all spices. Brush turkey breast roll generously on each side. Do not remove cooking strings if any as they keep meat cooking evenly. Turn on SAUTE function of Instant Pot and sauté on each side for about 5 minutes.
  • Deglaze the inner pot by adding some water/broth and scrubbing with a wooden spatula. Alternatively, sauté the turkey roll on each side on the stove.
  • Next, place turkey breast roll onto trivet in the inner pot. Then add water. PRESSURE COOK (custom setting) for 25 minutes on HIGH. Allow NATURAL RELEASE (approx. 15 minutes in my IP).
  • Remove cooking twine, if any and cut in thin slices. Serve warm.


  • I use Instant Pot Pro
  • Heating time is not included in final cooking time as each IP has slightly different preheating time. 
  • Turkey breast comes in a variety of ways – with or without cooking string (butcher’s twine). This recipe is suitable for both whole turkey breast and turkey breast roll with cooking string on.
