Pressure Cooker recipes: Kitchn

Who or what is The Kitchn? “The Kitchn is a website founded in 2005 by Maxwell Ryan and Sara Kate Gillingham”. The Kitchn describes itself as “a daily food magazine on the Web celebrating life in the kitchen through home cooking and kitchen intelligence.” Currently the Kitchn is “written by a small, steady team of freelance writers”. They do not accept recipes from unsolicited freelance submissions (people like you and me). This gives a professional consistency to the site (and the recipes).

I enjoy the site. It is an excellent reference for pressure cooker recipes. (Yes, there are ads. Oh well.)

The Kitchn pressure cooking section is a great reference. I am currently studying how to cook white beans in the pressure cooker, consulting #3 in the list above as well as other references, and will provide a link when my new post is completed.

(There are even tutorials and recipes, 50-plus, at this link.)

Below are some I’d like to try, or that are just interesting!

Instant Pot Weeknight Chicken and Rice Burrito Bowls This recipe calls for boneless chicken thighs, to which you add black beans, white rice, salsa, corn, onions and spices. Ten minutes quick release. Serve in bowls with cheese and cilantro. My only complaint is that I like to use brown rice – for better nutrition. Brown rice might take too long to cook in this chicken and rice dish, so the chicken and beans might get mushy.

30-Minute Pressure-Cooker Cacciatore Chicken You can start with frozen bone-in chicken drumsticks, add stock and tomatoes and spices, and have dinner ready in 30 minutes. It takes only 5 minutes less time if you use fresh chicken drumsticks. I see this as a good reason to keep frozen chicken drumsticks in the freezer! And the seasonings could be changed to adapt it to a lot of other recipes.

Vanilla Extract Never would have thought of making vanilla extract in the pressure cooker!

Chili Someday I’ll try making chili in the pressure cooker. This recipe calls for hamburger and overnight-soaked dry kidney beans. The total prep and cooking time is about an hour.

Barbacoa is a shredded beef dish made with chipotle chiles in adobe sauce. The article includes a link to a recipe for pink pickled onions.

Kacchi Lamb Dum Biryani is a dish made with lamb chunks, basmati rice, yogurt, lots of spices and garnishes. It is a hyderabadi-style dish and is often cooked during Ramadan. Hyderabadi cuisine is an amalgamation of Asian, Turkish, and Arabic cuisines.

Potato Risotto with potatoes, arborio rice, onions, and thyme.
