I remember my mom using a pressure cooker when I was little, but I have no idea how to use one. I hope that someone has some ideas for you.

I sometimes use my PC, mostly for potatoes and London broil meats. When I got my PC, it came with a little recipe book. Let me know if you would like some recipes from that book or maybe you already have a booklet with the recipes that came with yours....

i don't have one anymore either, but I really like making artichokes in it, and beans are much faster in it as well.

I haven't used mine for awhile. Mostly because I haven't had much experience with it and am unsure how to use it.

I will get mine out in a couple days(after I go to the store) and post what I do.

My mom did stew in it. Basically brown your meat in oil, then put all the stuff in and bring it up to pressure. I don't know which pressure she used or for how long, but it wasn't very long(15mins?).

Like I said...will be back...if I remember. So someone else has to post to bring this up again, k?

I love my PC! I didn't realize this forum was here!

I do lots of good stuff in my PC, and I've just ordered my second PC (I have a 7L, and am ordering a smaller one). I have a couple of good PC cookbooks that have oriented me to my PC since getting it as a gift a few years ago.

Here are the books I have:

The Best Pressure Cooker Cookbook Ever, by Pat Dailey
The Pressure Cooker Cookbook, by Toula Patsalis

PCs are made much safer that they used to be. I have a Kuhn Rikon and it has a dual safety system which makes it impossible to open without taking down the pressure first. No more kitchen explosions (I've heard rumors of that happening in my grandmother's day!).

People often mistake a PC for just another substitute for a crock pot. NOT TRUE! A crock pot cooks the living daylights out of everything (and somehow, regardless of the ingredients, everything from a crockpot seems to come out the same consistency -- yuck!). A PC allows food to retain many of it's nutrients (unlike a crock pot) and food tastes exciting, as if it had been simmering all day long!!!! I can't say enough about my PC.

Thanks for the list of cookbooks for PCs. I didn't know there were cookbooks for PCs out there.

There are! And another author is Lorna Sass, although I don't have any of her books (but she's kind of a big name in pressure cooking).

A good friend of mine turned me on to pressure cooking. She teaches classes at our local co-op and has made everything from soup to dessert in hers!

I used to have a pressure cooker but just used the bottom as a pot. I'm scared of them.

I make all my soups in them....

I start by sautéing onions, garlic in olive oil and then all my veggies with a dash of Sauvignon Blanc.....and then add water and close the PC...in 10 minutes it is all done and then I like to puree it all in my blender. I never use stock...I just add wine instead and just use water. And they are VERY tasty.


I of course use mine for beans previously soaked (but I have made some beans without presoaking them in my PC like chickpeas for my hummus)

I don't eat much meat so I don't do stews i them but my mom used to make them in her PC.


I love my PC....

I can't think of anything else I use it for...

I love my pressure cooker - well, I loved my old one until I dropped it and broke the handle , and the replacement one I got is not nearly as flexible and reliable. But still, I like the one I have. I used my old one for brown rice - 20 min. cook time vs. 45. And I love it when I forget to thaw something, or I want a slow-cooked taste in just a few minutes.

For a scatter-brain like I, it can be a life-saver...I may plan to have potato soup but get home with only 15 minutes until lunch time. So I throw it in the pressure cooker and in 10 minutes, it's cooked. I LOVE it!! It saves energy/electricity too.
