225 Best Pressure Cooker Recipes

Featuring a new cover, new photos and over a dozen new recipes!

A pressure cooker is indispensable for the busy home cook, as most foods cook in one-third of the time of conventional cooking methods. Many food writers and retailers have embraced it as the kitchen tool
of the millennium — you can save time and energy without compromising quality.

This incredible variety of recipes features everything from everyday meals to dishes for entertaining, including vegetarian options. Imagine hands-free risotto cooked to creamy perfection in
6 minutes, almost instant homemade stocks and broths, or a tender beef and red wine stew cooked in half an hour (inexpensive cuts of meats that usually require long, slow cooking are perfect for the pressure cooker). And the pressure cooker truly shines when it comes to preparing beans and whole grains.

Here are some of the vibrant and tantalizing recipes:
• Wild Mushroom and Potato Bisque
• Cajun Black Bean and Sausage Gumbo
• Beef Short Ribs in Barbecue Sauce
• Kansas City Pulled Pork Butt
• Risotto with Mushrooms and Shrimp
• Orange Espresso Cheesecake

You’ll find great information throughout the book — from pressure cooking essentials and tips for preparing beans and making stocks to a table of cooking times for vegetables, fruit, meat and poultry.
