I just recently purchased a pressure cooker and would like to know where I can find some good recipes on the internet. Also, if the readers have some recipes that they have tried themselves, I would appreciate you sharing them. Thank you for your help.
Yet another pressure cooker recipe site...
Here is a place you can go to get lots of pressure cooker recipes: type in google.com and when you get to their site, type in pressure cooker recipes and you will get lots of sites that offer recipes, probably more than you can use. The pressure cooker is really a time-saver if you are pressed for time. You can prepare a meal so quick. I don't use mine as much as I once did. Anita

Most people never mention pressure-cooking meat. I used to live in northern MN and we would can an entire deer. The meat itself provides most of the seasoning but additional spices can be found online. What an easy, tasty lunch, or other meal, when one has only to open a quart or pint jar and heat the contents. Beef and pork are wonderful cooked that way too.
