How ’bout a fantastic recipe for pressure cooker
I gotta say, I’ve only had my pressure cooker for a few months now but I am totally spoiled with it. More than I like to admit, I tend to get side tracked and when dinner time rolls around, getting it together becomes a fuss. Since I’ve had this little miracle appliance, it’s made my life a lot less hectic.
If you’re new to pressure cooking, you’re gonna need some great recipes to get you started and today’s post is perfect for a beginner. Even if you’re a veteran, this recipe is one you’ll want to try because it’s so delicious. I’ve been making this version of fried rice on the stove for years now and I’m super happy it’s adapted for the pressure cooker.
Here’s what you’ll need… Onion, garlic, butter (or oil), an egg, soy sauce, chicken stock, rice and your favorite frozen veggies. (do not add the veggies until after your rice is cooked) The amounts are given in the recipe print out below.
Btw, I’m using the Power Pressure Cooker XL but this recipe works with any electric pressure cooker.
To get started, you’ll need to heat the unit up. Just press one of the options. Place your butter, onion and garlic in the pot and saute for about a minute.
Add the egg and cook another minute. Be sure to stir it around because it will stick to the bottom of the pot a bit. Stir in the rest of the ingredients once the egg is mostly cooked.
Place the lid on the unit and set the steam release valve to closed. Select the setting for rice/risotto and adjust the timer to cook for 10 minutes. After the timer has counted down to zero and the rice is done, carefully turn the steam valve to release.
Once the steam is finished releasing, remove the lid and stir in your frozen veggies. I like peas in my fried rice. The residual heat from the rice is just enough to warm the veggies through.
That’s all there is to it friends. Easy, right? I should warn you though, this stuff is addicting. Really.
I do hope you’ll give this one a try next time you’re looking for something fun and yummy to make with your pressure cooker. It’s definitely a keeper!
