Default Pressure cooking

well, hubby bought me an electric pressure cooker for our anniversary.
I finally got to use it last night.
I have used pressure cookers before, but not an electric one.
Its called a Power Cooker (whatever that means)
So I tried roasting chicken in it.
It came out great!

The recipe called for two whole chickens (smallish) but I used parts that I'd defrosted 2 days ago.
All I did was brown the drums and thighs in a bit of olive oil
Then sprinkled garlic powder, dried minced onions, a dash of cumin and salt/pepper, fresh rosemary and cooked it for 30 min. on the roast mode.

I could have probably reduced the time but it was really yummy and fall off the bone tender and juicy.

Anyone have any recipes for dinners using a pressure cooker?
And have you ever used an electric one?

Sidewalker,

I've never used one, personally. Too afraid it might explode. Well, that's what Mama told me anyway. I'd like to see the answers that you get. Go to Pinterest and put "pressure cooker recipes". There may be some recipes for you there.

They are great for tough cuts of meat. My Mother used to cook brisket in one it always came out so good. 1 large beef brisket, 16oz can tomato sauce, 1 bay leaf, 1 large onion, 8 whole cloves of garlic. Oh my mouth is watering just thinking about it!! She always cooked egg noodles to put it over. I think she would cook it for about 30-45 minutes. Hey SIDEWALKER thanks for bringing this up!!! Brought back some great memories!!! The new ones don't explode!!!

I love my pressure cooker, although I don't have one of the new electric ones but that roast feature sounds fantastic!

When I was young, my Dad did a lot of cooking in the pressure cooker. The one I have now has a locking mechanism so you cannot open it while it is under pressure. And it doesn't have the weight for the top either, it has a selection button on the lid.

Yes Walmart has them They have a safety valve that will release the pressure if it gets to much. They are great I have the electric and a regular one they run about 30-40 dollars. I'm sure they can cost more at places like William somona, but I'm cheap so I shop at cheap stores. But I do recommend buying a good pressure cooker they last for years and are a treasure.

hahaha lockdown.
no...........just the lid unless you *uhlock* it.
I love pressure cookers. At least the ones you put on the stove. this one is all fancy electric. Plug in. *alien to me*
lol.
All I know is this sucker did an amazing job on this chicken. really.
apparently you can even cook FROZEN chicken in this sucker.
(not sure Im gonna try that...........but maybe Ya never know)
I will update as I experiment with this thing.
I dont know where hubby bought this. (present) but.............
It seems like it came from place called tristar products. There is no www addy to pass along. Im sure other places have something similar.

(note to self, make hubby stop watching the home shopping channel or whatever it is.......lol)

Yep.
Ive used it quite a bit actually.
I cant remember the last thing but it was probably chicken.
And yes. I have put in totally frozen chicken straight out of the freezer.
takes a half hr or so. (the half hr is AFTER the pressure comes to the point its pressurized)
Ive done stews.
Pot roast
Pork roast
Chicken/rice/veg.

I think there is another thread with Hot Pot in the title too.
(had to look up hot pot to see it was the same as pressure cooker)

I DO need to order a new seal for it. Its silicone and its been warped. lol. Or just lost its Umpf.


correction, its titled Instant Pot
