The most affordable route is freezer bags. I used gallon size freezer bags for each recipe.
What If Frozen Food Won’t Fit In Instant Pot
You can freeze each freezer meal flat or on the side in the freezer bags. If the contents won’t fit in frozen, toss in microwave for 2-3 minutes to thaw it slightly then pour into Instant Pot.
It will thaw it just enough you can toss right in the pressure cooker and seal with no problem.

Do I precook all of the meat before putting them in the freezer bags?
Depending on the recipe yes you will work on precooking meat. I find pre-cooked meat works best when you freeze and reheat in IP. It offers the best flavor.
