Pressure Cooker Recipes?

13 posts in this topic

:) All you good cooks--I just got a new digital pressure cooker a couple of weeks ago and the recipe book is pretty much a joke. Not a lot of recipes. This model is not like the scary old-fashioned ones your mom and grandma used. It has all kinds of safety features, a built-in timer, a meat rack, and even a baking pan for cakes. I know I need to use a lot more seasoning for foods with this and I was wondering if anyone had this cooker--Cooks and Chefs digital?(I ordered from HSN) Any model recipes will work. Any recipes welcome. I already did ribs, chicken, and a roast, but I am looking for highly seasoned flavorful recipes that are gluten-free, dairy free, corn free,soy free. I can make substitutions for any that aren't. My son will only eat foods that are highly seasoned or even spicy. Also, has anyone used a pressure cooker to pressure fry?

I'm not much of a meat eater currently, but in the past we have made beef or chicken chili, beef or chicken stews, and rouladen (German bacon and pickle stuffed beef basically). You can make any kind of meat in it much quicker than the usual method of cooking. I'll have to dig up some recipes for you. It might be a week or so, since I'm going out of town.

Try this link for pressure cooker recipes at Recipezaar (not necessarily gluten-free): Pressure Cooker Recipes

Also if you google "pressure cooker recipes" quite a few links come up.

Even though they are updated from what they used to be, they still scare me a little. I'm affraid they are going to explode :lol: I love the taste of millet cooked in the pressure cooker, I haven't really tried anything else yet.

Enjoy your pressure cooker!

I have to say, my favorite food in the pressure cooker is still fresh green beans with onions and red potatoes. Don't have a recipe per se...just go about 2 or 3 minutes from when the steam starts firing! I like some of these recipes too: http://www.gopresto.com/recipes/pressurecooking/index.php

I've been using The Pressure Cooker Gourmet by Victoria Wise. I think you can still get this from Amazon if your local bookseller doesn't carry it.

Also, I've read that Indian cooks have adapted traditional curry recipes to the pressure cooker, but I haven't been brave enough to try this on my own and haven't managed to come up with receipes either.

I'm so glad to hear that other people use pressure cookers. I am 37 and no one my age uses one. I grew up using one. I love it. I use mine for sloppy joes, spaghetti, stew, swiss steak, beef strognoff, corn on cob, green beans to name a few.

If you are interested, let me know for any of the recipes.

Have a good day!!

:) Thanks everyone--I will get the cookbook! Also thanks for the links. I 'm a little older (45) but, no one around my age here uses one either. It is a pity, because they are such a timesaver. I have to admit, though, even with the safety features, I still say to everyone-just like my mom did-stay away from the kitchen when the pressure cooker is on!! I always was sooo scared of the thing my mom had when I was a kid and imagined it blowing up the kitchen and killing us all :blink:

I had a delicious meal years ago. She put some pesto in the beef with it. It was so tender. She said she used this pesto with all the meat she put in it. She had a family member send her this special pesto. I plan to use my cooker and crock pot this winter. I eat alot of salads, fruits and veggies in the summer. LL

Pressure cookers are fairly safe. I have used one for years (I'm 31), so has my mom and sister. When they get clogged you would know it, and they have the safety valves now. They just blow out the rubber safety valve and release pressure instantly.

As for recipes, most veggies are 2-4 minutes after the steam starts releasing. I make stew, pork chops, rice and tons of things in it. The stew and pork chops are simple. I season with gluten free onion soup mix. Brown the meat then cook for 20 minutes after the steam starts to blow. For the stew, when the meat is done cooking, release the steam open it up and add the veggies, potatoes etc. and then cook another 8-10 minutes. For the pork chops after it cooks take them out of the pan and use the juices left over to make rice, add parsley and you have a home made gluten free rice-a-roni. (I use instant rice and just boil it in the pan).

Thanks for the idea with the pesto, lindalee. I will try beef with pesto -I have tons of basil this year-good use for it.

Laurie-I am so glad you posted the veggie time-the little booklet that came with my pressure cooker didn't give any time table for veggies and I keep over-cooking them!

I love the convenience of this appliance-I have been doing whole chickens and making a big bowl of chicken salad once a week. On really hot days after working outside in the yard it is so nice to have a ready made meal of chicken salad sandwiches or salad stuffed tomatoes. I just make a fruit to go with it and it is a great lunch. (I add chips too of course :) gotta have all our treats we can, right? )

Hi, I am kind of new to this. But if your son will eat Indian food there are tons of high flavor, spicy foods you can cook in under 10 to 15 minsl. in a pressure cooker. I have a very basic stainless steel cooker so can give you some easy recipes.

First, I keep the basic "gravy" cooked in the freezer all the time for most of Indian cooking. I mince 5 lbs of onions and brown them. Then I add 3-4 tomatoes, 4-5 cloves of garlic, and 2-3 inches of ginger minced to the pan. I also add 2-3 tbls tomato paste. Cook this till it all turns a dark red in color. You'll need to add a couple of tbls of oil for this. I then cool and freeze it in ice cube trays.

Then, when time to cook. I just grab a couple of these and use.

For example, to make chicken, I generally make drumsticks. But if you use boneless that will work as well. Add about 4-5 cubes of the above mixtures, throw in 5 to 6 durmsticks, add salt, red pepper, and a tbls of "garam masala" ( you can get this at any Indian store or even the International isle in grocery stores). Add a 2-3 cups of water, close and once the pressure starts cook for another 5-7 minutes.

You can cook beans and lentils the same way. But soak the beans overnight in water first. Or the cook time will have to be incresed to 20-30 minutes. Throw in browned beef or turkey with some veggies and you have chilli.

You could cook goat or lamb the exact same way, cubed ofcourse.

Play with the amount of water and spices to adjust to your taste.

Hope that helped.

Robin, She had her pesto in a small container in the frig. Great idea about making the pesto. I have a container of basil on the deck. If you have a good recipe maybe I'll get into making that! She put about a tablespoon in the meat and it was heaven :) . My cooker was my mom's so I will admit I stand back when it is working. :lol: What type of flour do you use? I haven't bought any of that yet. Thanks, LL

Hi Lee-I use rice flour mostly for recipes. Sometimes tapioca flour. Hey, thanks for the ideas. I haven't tried the pesto beef yet, but will. I will try the gravy too-ds is so hard to please. He puts hot sauce on everything.

    • So my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
    • when they first came out, I read the ingredients on them, and they don't seem to contain malt.  But the company, at that time specifically posted on the website that they  are not gluten-free.  So I don't drink them.
    • Rum is naturally gluten free, but in cases where it is flavored, spiced, etc. you have to be careful where they might add a malt in the natural flavorings. I been using Admiral Nelsons coconut rums in cooking for finishing off stir frys, and adding a bit of flavor to caramelized ingredients for a few years now, I have never had issues with those. As for the Morgan, I would be careful with the spiced version as they might use a malt based ingredient in it. I did a bit of research and like you found no conclusive evidence to if it contains gluten or not. The plain rum from them is listed on many and been tested by several groups and has come up gluten free. On a side note if your a celiac or have intestinal damage I would avoid alcohol or drink in moderation. I personally only use it in cooking.
    • Hi, It seems they advertise it as a malt beverage.  Malt is made from barley normally, so it would not be gluten-free.  Unless they specify the malt is corn malt, it is always assumed to be barley malt per FDA labeling regs.
