Instant Pot Garlic Noodles are so garlicky, delicious and easy to make. You can have Chinese takeout at home!
Turn on the Sauté setting to the lowest heat. When hot, add the butter and oil.
Add the garlic and stir it frequently.
While the garlic is cooking, mix together the sauce ingredients.
Sauté the garlic until fragrant, but not burnt.
Add the sauce and stir.
Add 1 cup of the water and stir. Turn off the sauté setting.
Add the spaghetti noodles in a random bird nest pattern so fewer will stick together.
Add the remaining cup of water over the pasta.
Close the lid and set the steam release knob to the Sealing position.
Press the Pressure Cook/Manual button or dial, then the +/- button or dial to select 6 minutes. High Pressure. The pot will take a few minutes to come to pressure.
When the cook cycle has finished, turn off the pot and let it sit undisturbed for 3 minutes (3 minute natural release). Then turn the steam release knob to the Venting position to release the remaining steam/pressure.
When the pin in the lid drops back down, open the lid. Stir the noodles.
Place the lid back on, but don't seal the vent. Let the pasta sit for about 5 minutes, then open the lid and stir again. Separate any stuck together noodles.
