Cooking in a Pressure Cooker

  1. Peel and chop the potatoes into to medium sized chunks.

Tips and Tricks for Your Pressure Cooker

I used an Instant Pot in order to make this meal, and many other meals as well. In my experience, when you use fresh vegetables instead of frozen, the time for the cooker to come to pressure is far shorter. Another way to shorten the pressurizing time is to use boiled water to mix with the bouillon product instead of cold or room temperature. You can expect 10-15 minutes added to the cook time for the appliance to come to pressure. If you use the quick release valve, pull the cooker away from any cabinets in order to reduce any damage that may be done to them due to the steam. In order to protect yourself from the steam, it helps to move the valve with the back of your stirring utensil. This appliance is one of the best investments I have ever made in regards to my kitchen. I do not know what I would do without it!
