    Default what's in your pressure cooker?

    following on from the success that is the "what's in your slow cooker" thread, I've decided to put it out there and want to know what's in your pressure cooker?

    I just bought one and want recipe ideas.

    hit me people! πŸ‘ŠπŸ½

    Bolognaise.
    Chilli con carne.
    Steak and Guinness pie mix.
    Chilli chicken mix to use in enchiladas or burritos.
    Anything I usually slow cook but don't have time!
    I haven't figured out a successful curry yet though- it always curdles

    I'm an impatient person so sounds like a pressure cooker is right up my alley πŸ˜‚

    Yeah mines a multi cooker and I'm not organised enough to plan ahead, so barely use the slow cooker but mostly pressure cook.
    The only drawback is veggies become mushier than if they were slow cooked.
    You can use any slow cook recipe but requires less water/sauce as the steam adds a lot of moisture as opposed to losing it with slow cooking.

    @LittleMissSunshine cook your curry minus any "milk" products (coconut or cream) and only add this last at the end of cooking and on cooling as a stir in/through. Works a treat. I make a mean ala natural butter chicken in my pressure cooker - OMG! Its so good! Keep trying curries they are really good in a pc x

    Following for inspiration.
    I bought one last year but didn't really get the hang of it straight away and quickly gave up.
    The only thing I did make well was chicken stock and subsequent chicken and veg soup.
    I'll have to try again now it's getting towards stew type weather.

    Just got a PC (multi cooker really) so bumping. So far I've done

    Pork chops in mushroom sauce ...yum yum
    Mongolian chicken (didn't have any beef) really nice
    Blade steak


    All have been tasty and really tender.

    Risotto! I have a multi cooker so can cook the rice in oil/butter before adding the liquid. My basic recipe is 300g arborio rice plus 800ml liquid (eg. 600 stock + 200 wine, or all stock) plus any hard veggies (pumpkin, sweet potato) and meat 1.5-2cm cubes. 8 minutes on low pressure. Release steam and add soft veggies (asparagus, beans, brocolli, zucchini, frozen peas etc) stir lightly then shut the lid again and leave on warm for 5-10 min until veg are cooked. Then stir through a couple of handfuls of fresh parmesan.

    Best eaten right away as it goes a bit gluggy staying in the cooker - but I find the same regardless of how I cook risotto.

    Other regulars in this house are chunky veg and barley soup, pumpkin soup and spag bol.
