How To Make Instant Pot Fresh Garlic Marinara Sauce
Add your olive oil to your Instant Pot, then press saute. Let the oil heat up, add the onions, saute until golden brown (about 5 minutes). Just remember to keep them moving in the pan so they do not burn or stick.
Then add the garlic, saute for about 30 seconds.
Then add the tomatoes, basil, and sugar, vegetable broth, and seasonings. Stir well
Place the cover on the Instant Pot, adjusting the valve to seal. Using Manual High Pressure, adjust the time to 30 minutes. When the beep goes off, let it naturally release. Mix well.
Fresh or Canned Tomatoes?
When it comes to making a sauce, the choice of tomatoes is important. Today, I used a simple canned tomato, which works well in this recipe.
But, if you are in the midst of a tomato harvest, you can switch the canned tomatoes out for either Plum or Roma tomatoes.
Sugar in Tomato Sauce?
My grandmother, a true Sicilian woman, always put sugar in the sauce, which really balances the acid in the sauce. It will really add a lot of flavors and enhance the flavor.
