Pressure Cooker Cookbook: Homemade Meals in Minutes

The acclaimed cookbook author explores the full flavors of comfort food classics made in mere minutes with these pressure cooker recipes.

Modern stove-top or electric pressure cookers offer a safe and reliable way to prepare satisfying meals in a fraction of the time it usually takes to cook them. In The Pressure Cooker Cookbook, Tori Richie shares tips, techniques and more than forty irresistible recipes for busy home cooks.

The book begins with a primer on the types of pressure cookers available today and how to use them to achieve the best results. Next are four recipe chapters: Soups & Stews, Beans & Grains, Meats & Poultry, and Vegetables. The back matter offers a visual step-by-step guide on how to prepare pressure-cooked meals, and serving suggestions make it easy to pair the main course with tasty sides and other accompaniments.

The Pressure Cooker Cookbook features traditional favorites like barbecued brisket sandwiches, pot roast with root vegetables, and Boston baked beans. Creamy risotto and cheesy scalloped potatoes become easy weeknight dishes. And even vegetables take center stage with tasty dishes like winter squash purée with brown butter and sage, and braised fennel with garlic.
