Electric Pressure Cooker Recipes
So you got a brand-spankin’-new electric pressure cooker. Now what?
Please note: I’m using the Power Pressure Cooker XL but keep in mind, all the recipes included in this post work the same for other brand models. Simply consult your manual for the technical details, i.e.. which buttons to push 😉
When it comes to pressure cooking, the first thing that comes to mind are those old pressure cookers Mom and Grandma used to use. You know the ones. They’d put a big hunk of meat in the pot, throw in an onion, screw on the lid and stick it on the burner.
When it would begin to heat up, that toggle on top sounded like little Johnny choo choo was the train that wished he could. By the time the thing was in full function, you weren’t allowed to walk too hard through the kitchen because the hope was we’d have dinner and NOT be blown to kingdom come.
Well friends, long gone are those days. Pressure cookers now have safety features built into them to prevent such a scary chance of events. As long as you follow the manufacturer’s instructions, keep your unit clean and the valve free of built up debris, you’re good to go. Most modern models, such as the one pictured above (the Power Pressure Cooker XL) have interlocking lids. That prevents the user from opening the unit until the pressure is completely released, safely.
So, now that you’ve got your brand new, fancy-schmancy gadget you’re gonna need some recipes. Right?

Hi Ronald, thanks for stopping by. Take a look at my recipe here —> https://www.happybellyfoodie.com/no-soak-pressure-cooker-baked-beans/
Hi Connie, I wonder if I being completely stupid, but I was trying your no soak baked bean recipe in the XL pressure cooker, and I pushed the bean/lentil option, but it wouldn’t allow me to cook over 30 mins… what was I doing wrong??
Connie Murray says
Not sure if there’s a manual button on that model. You may have to let it go through a couple of cycles.
