Questions Answered About Instant Pot Jambalaya

Now you do not have to use all three types of meat in this dish. While it adds layers of flavor, you can make with just one or two meats if you don’t want all three.

If you can’t find Bay seasoning you can replace with Creole seasoning and get similar flavors. Depending on where you live will depend on what spices are available. But you can always order Bay seasoning online if you can’t find it at your local stores.

As to what makes for a great side dish for instant pot jambalaya, I always like cornbread or even a side salad as a side.
