So you've read the instructions, tried out the recipes that come with the cooker, found pressure cooker recipe lists, and are now itching to try something new or at least something you know you love, but haven't tried to make in a pressure cooker.
To convert your recipe to a pressure cooker recipe you will do best if you have a little experience with the method of pressure cooking. But to help you out here are a few basic rules that most people follow in their recipe testing:
- Decrease the length of cooking time for a conventional recipe by 2/3.
- Adjust the liquid as there is minimal evaporation of liquid from a pressure cooker. Typically, you will want to have about 1/2 cup more liquid in the pot that you desire in your finished food product.
- There MUST ALWAYS be water or some other liquid in a pressure cooker for the steam that is necessary to cook.
