We are obsessed with our pressure cookers here at OhSo. Two of us have Instant Pots and the other two have Power Pressure Cookers XL. Tender meats cooked FAST seem to be the golden ticket, but I wanted to do something different. Maybe even vegetarian...this Pressure Cooker Veggie Lasagna is a total winner. Pressure cooker lasagna isn't really different from lasagna cooked in the oven. You use no-boil noodles, layer the sauce, ricotta, cheese as usual, add a bunch of veggies, and cover . . .
One time I asked a good friend how on earth her mother made such amazing mexi-rice. When she told me how simple it was, I couldn't believe it. What's even better, I took her famous recipe and made it one step easier! This pressure cooker mexi-rice is fast, easy and the perfect side to any mexican dish. When my friend told me her family's recipe for mexican rice, she mentioned ingredients I had never noticed while shopping. Knorr chicken boullion? "Always Knorr, and clado de tomate" I . . .
I don't want to toot my own horn, but this recipe is GOOD. Each time I make it, every crumb is devoured. This burrito bowl has been my go-to meal prep meal as of late. It has been a lunch I have looked forward to, and I don't feel guilty about eating. BURRITO BOWLS FOR THE SOUL I want to tell you how this recipe came to be. About four months back, my then-2-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. It was and has been a very trying time for my family. My little boy, Graham, has been in . . .
Tacos are a big deal around here. We even taught a taco and salsa class at Pinner's Conference last fall. Taco Tuesdays are a tradition at our house - so I was anxious to make this Beef Barbacoa in my Instant Pot. I love that the Instant Pot produces textures as if the food was slowly cooked all day - but in a fraction of the time. . . .
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 . . .
One of the things I kept seeing you could bake with the pressure was cheesecake. Sound perfect, right? You get the moisture needed for cheesecakes, and a quick bake time so you can start chilling them. Because CHEESECAKE! I tried this three different times until I got the cook time right. I used my Grandma's cheesecake recipe, I love it every time. I've done mini cheesecake bites as well as a regular cheesecake in a 9" pie plate, but I mostly wanted to test out baking methods for the . . .
This. Is. Comfort food. Creamy rice, soft and hearty veggies, juicy chicken thighs, and salty onion strings. I've had this basic recipe for a while now, and every time I make it I am pleasantly surprised how delicious this simple meal with simple ingredients is. The leftovers are also just as good, and soul-warming on a cool, fall day. Leftover turkey would also substitute the chicken perfectly. I've written out instructions for conventional oven baking and pressure cooker cooking. Oven . . .
Pressure cookers are really fabulous for cooking meats super fast and making them really moist. But. Veggies need some love too! This is the perfect chop and dump meal. Prep everything, open some cans, and throw it all in there. Done in 10 minutes. This vegetarian chili is totally customizable, forgiving, and if you really want some meat, you can totally add chicken, turkey, whatever you want. Super healthy, and you can add all the kid-friendly toppings. TEN MINUTES, . . .
I think I've found one my newest favorite kitchen gadget. The pressure cooker. Aubrey and I have been testing out these Power Pressure Cooker XLs over the last several months and I have been SO IMPRESSED. We knew we wanted to see how well they work and what we could do with them, but we were especially excited to see what dinners could be made super fast in honor of this crazy back-to-school time and all of the upcoming busy weeknights we are anticipating. We'll be bringing you a few new . . .
I've been making this soup for a couple years now, and every time I do, I can't get over how easy and how delicious it is. I know those terms are used quite loosely in the foodie world, but this is pretty dang foolproof, takes 5 minutes to throw in the crock pot, and the flavors are incredible. Start with a great salsa verde (Trader Joe's for the win, but any will do) and that does most of the work for you with it's tangy tomatillo, savory garlic, and yummy onion and garlic. We fight over . . .
