I received a pressure cooker as a wedding gift two years ago. I have no experience using one, and was slightly intimated by it, so it's been sitting under a cabinet since it was opened. Today, I stumbled on a pressure cooker recipe, and was amazed by the time given to cook stew was 6-8 minutes! I downloaded more recipes, and rice dishes in under 10 minutes??? Cooked potatoes in 8 minutes? I'm boon-doogled. Is that really possible? Are pressure cookers that great? My husband and I usually make dinner from scratch every night, and sometimes we don't eat until around 7pm (which is too late for people that go to bed before 10pm)! Seems like a pressure cooker might be a miracle tool. Anyone have any pressure cooking tips? And recipes? I'm pulling the cooker out tonight to make something. Not sure what yet.
