You're going to love the pressure cooker! You can saute things in it and then add the rest of ingredients before you put on the lid and cook it. This makes the food come out tasting like it would on the stove top. Lorna Sass is a great source. So is YouTube. Veggies and beans cook quickly and beautifully in one too. Have fun!

Life isnít about finding yourself. Itís about creating yourself.

I had the same concerns the first time I used a pressure cooker two years ago, but it is awesome. I have a large pressure cooker and using it to cook meat makes the meat cook quicker, it will hold the flavor just like cooking it in an oven, and takes half the time. The meat comes out juicy and delicious. I use mine to cook beef ribs, chicken and roasts. The best way to learn to use it is get a pressure cooker cookbook. I recommend Pressure Perfect by Lorna Sass. She really explains pressure cooking to a new comer so it doesn't seem so overwhelming. The recipes are easy to follow and delicious. Also, be mindful of subtle differences such as the size of your pressure cooker will dictate the timing and what can be cooked in it. If making a roast in the pressure cooker, add the vegetables after the roast is cooked. In a pressure cooker, vegetables and potatoes cook in 1 to 2 minutes not 10 to 20. Hope this helps. I am sure you will love it.

No specific recipes to share as DH uses our pressure cooker but I haven't yet. He makes a huge batch of brown rice in ours then freezes it in smaller batches so we can pull it out when we need it. A friend made a roast in a pressure cooker for a pre-Christmas dinner we had. It was really delicious and tender. Good luck!

My mom bought me a pressure cooker for Christmas. My main concern is will the food still taste as good as if I cooked it stovetop? I mean, a roast getting done in 20 minutes seems unnatural. lol Also, if anyone has any recipes to share that would be awesome!! =)
