We have loved pressure cooker week! I know you’re dying to go out and grab one, we absolutely love ours. These pressure cookers will save your school night dinner scrambles, so you can spend more time
doing homework with your kids having Bachelor nights with the girls.
As a recap, basically anything that can be done in the crockpot can be done in the pressure cooker 2-3 times as fast. You have to have liquid in the pot, so you’re not going to get anything crispy in there. You can totally make desserts, frozen-solid hunks of meat, the electric ones made today come with all sorts of safety features so they’re basically foolproof, it doesn’t heat up your kitchen, and they’re amazing. Get one. Go team.
We added pressure cooker directions to the bottom of each of these recipes. Look under “notes”, and it’ll tell you how to convert all of our favorite recipes to pressure cooker recipes. We’ll continually add to this post as we create new ones!

How to Adapt Recipes for Pressure Cooker
We haven’t been using them too long, but we gathered a list of our current recipes that we think would be perfect for a pressure cooker. A lot of you said that you had no clue where to start or what you could make in your pressure cooker. We linked to our Power Pressure Cooker XL at the bottom of the post, and also want to shout out to one of the most resourceful blogs we’ve found, Pressure Cooking Today. She explains how to convert any recipe to a pressure cooker recipe here. We explained a bit in each of our posts this week, but she answers any questions you might have being a newbie. Go out and get one and let us know what recipes worked and some of your favorite ones to make!
