Essential Recipes Every Electric Pressure Cooker Should Come With (But Doesn't)
In an electric pressure cooker, combine 1 pound dried black beans (about 2 cups), 6 cups water, 2 tablespoons lard or vegetable oil, 1 peeled and halved white onion, 1 fresh cilantro sprig, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Close lid, set pressure to high, and set timer for 22 minutes. (It will take about 12 minutes for pressure to build before cooking automatically begins.) When done, let pressure release naturally (it will take about 23 minutes). Remove lid and turn the heat to medium or sauté. Bring to a strong simmer, and mash beans with a potato masher or large wooden spoon. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until liquid thickens, about 15 minutes. Taste, and season with more salt if necessary. Serve topped with grated cotija cheese, fresh cilantro, and other garnishes of your choice such as radishes and limes.

Tips On Using Your Pressure Cooker
Especially if you’re a beginner when it comes to pressure cookers, these tips will come in handy:
- Only fill your pressure cooker to 2/3 of its capacity or your food will be too crowded to cook properly.
- Stick to the cooking times, ingredient order and chopping sizes laid out in the recipes these all affect how long food takes to cook and the right combination means none of your ingredients end up over-cooked or remain too raw.
- If you’re adding fresh herbs, wait until your food has finished cooking and then add them just before serving – otherwise the heat will make them wilt and lose their flavor.
Pressure Cooker Sauerbraten
(Click here to see the original recipe at thespruceeats.com)
Total cooking time: 110 minutes
Yield: 8-10 servings
To prepare the chuck roast, trim off any excess fat from the edges and pat it dry with a paper towel. Rub the roast with salt and pepper.
Put the olive oil in the pressure cooker pot and let it heat up for a few minutes. Then, put the roast in the pot and leave the lid off while it browns. Turn the roast every couple minutes so that all its sides start to brown.
In a separate bowl, mix the water, red wine vinegar, red wine (or beef stock), sugar, cloves, salt, and bay leaves. Set the bowl aside.
Once the roast has browned on all sides, add the chopped carrots, celery, onions, and crushed gingersnap cookies to the pot, around the roast. Grab the vinegar mixture you just made and pour it over all the ingredients.
Put the pressure cooker lid on the pot and use high temperature to raise the pot to high pressure. Once it reaches pressure, cook for 50 minutes. Do not open the pressure cooker during this time. To be safe, make sure to lock the lid and close the pressure release valve.
After 50 minutes goes by, gently take the pressure cooker off the heat source and let it sit for about 30 minutes so the pressure can reduce naturally. After that, you can then remove the lid to look at the food.
After cooking the roast, remove all the pressure cooker’s contents. Place the roasted meat on a serving platter. For the liquid and vegetables, either serve them how they are with the roast or blend them in a food processor until smooth and pour it over the roast.
