I make all sorts of soups and tonight I'm just doing a simple red beans and brown rice recipe. It'll make a lot and I can freeze some and also have it for the rest of the week. Message me if you want more detailed recipes.

Well I still have not bought a new electric pressure cooker. I was not happy when I found out the IP was manufactured in China and still have not given up on the idea that I might find one from some other country of origin (made is Canada or USA would be the best!)

The unit I have quite coming up to steam, and it is about 10 years old so the telephone number is no longer in service. I tried to google the model but can't see one listed anywhere.

So I am still searching. I hope to find something soon as I have used all the beans I had precooked and frozen. It takes so long to prep them using the stove top method... (sigh)

This post is a bit late. I have an Instant Pot electric pressure cooker and am learning. I 've made beans, white bean & ham soup, chicken, broth, hard boiled eggs, etc. Although I've been on Sparkpeople for quite awhile, I messed myself up and am now starting over with diet & exercise. Love the pressure cooker and want to use it to help me to be a more healthy me! Let me know if you are interested in exchanging info about the cookers.

Does anyone use a pressure cooker? If so, what do you prepare in it?

I have an 4 quart electric pressure cooker that has preset buttons such as "beef" "chicken" "fish" "soup" etc, It does not have a traditional countdown timer. (I also have a stove top unit but I don't like to use it because I tend to fall asleep so easily.... Not a good idea to leave a pressure cooker on the burner ! ! ! So I just use that as a large stock pot when needed.)

At some point this year, I am hoping to get a new unit with stainless steel cooking pot and with an actual timer.

So far I have done:

Beans which I then freeze in 1 cup amounts to be added to the crock pot later
Soups and Stews

I once made a 10 bean soup but everything cooked at different times so while some types of beans were done very nicely, others were still very hard. The next time I tried adding things at different points in the process, but it was difficult to always be opening the unit and it turned out to be an all day procedure. Not fun at all.

I am looking for other ideas and recipes.
