Pressure Cooker Broccoli Beef

This recipe uses the 2 pot system to keep the rice and meat separate.

I way overcooked the broccoli and I am writing this recipe the way I think I should try next time...



Ingredients:
thinly cut steak slices
onion, sliced
fresh broccoli florets

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon beef bouillon
crushed red pepper, to taste

Whisk together for sauce



Turn pot on to the 15 minute chicken/meat setting and let heat up for about 5 minutes with the lid off. Add sesame oil and saute steak until brown.


Then add sauce and put the steamer tray in. Then I put equal parts of white rice and water in a small pot that fit on top of the steamer with the lid on.

Then I set it for 6 minutes on the rice/risotto setting.



Let it natural release for 10 minutes. Release any remaining steam.

Remove rice and add broccoli and onions to the meat.




Set for 2 minutes on vegetable setting. Quick release steam, stir and serve over rice...

Pressure Cooker Meatballs with Mushroom Gravy

Here's a simple all-in-one recipe for your pressure cooker with basically no prep work. It will be done in only 20 minutes including the time to build up pressure.



Throw 20-30 meatballs (thaw first if frozen) into the pot. Add one can cream of mushroom soup, one can golden mushroom soup, 1 Tablespoon beef bouillon, paprika, black pepper, and egg noodles. Stir gently.

Pour enough water over to just cover the noodles...


Cook on soup/stew setting for 10 minutes.


The gravy will thicken a bit as it sits.

Pressure Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry





I used my recipe for coconut chicken curry (minus the water), and placed it in the bottom of the cooker.

Then I set it for 10 minutes on the soup/stew setting.

*Next time I will try adding the veggies to the chicken while only the rice cooks...




I quick released the pressure and put the steamer tray in. Then I put equal parts of white rice and water in a small pot that fit on top of the steamer with the lid on.

Then I set it for 6 minutes on the rice/risotto setting.



Let it natural release for 10 minutes. Release any remaining steam. Open and serve the curry over rice.

Toad in a Hole

In 2016 I tried Yorkshire pudding and liked it so much I wanted to try Toad in a Hole (Yorkshire pudding with sausage). And Toad in a Hole is such a cool name. They are also the perfect accompaniment to an episode of Sherlock...



This recipe is for 4-6 personal-sized Toad in a Holes.

Spray large muffin pan with cooking spray (you can also use a standard size one). Place one pre-cooked sausage in each cup.

Place pan in oven, turn on to 400 and let sit in oven while you make the batter and oven pre-heats.

Beat together until smooth:
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste

Beat in another 1/4 cup milk and 1/2 Tablespoon melted butter

Remove pan from oven and brush cups generously with melted butter.

Pour batter evenly over sausages.

Place back into oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until puffy and dark golden brown.
