    Pressure Cooker meals

    Well I made bean soup today in the pressure cooker. I will be making this at the camp site. It turned out great. This was just a test trip, but I am not changing a thing. carrots, celery, onion, 1lb navy beans, salt, and pepper. I added ham also






    Cut up 4 large carrots, 1cup celery, 1 onion, 1/2 lb ham, and 1lb navy beans. I did soak the beans over night, but you don't have to. Put in Pressure cooker with 2qt of water. chop carrots a little thick, add what you want (if you like carrots add a lot) chop onions, and celery. add all to water in cooker. Add 1tea spoon pepper 1/2 tea spoon salt. Put lid on and heat. When it comes to pressure time 30 minuets. remove from heat let stand till pressure is gone.
    You are ready to eat.

    Boy that looks good. I've got fond memories of Mom making navy bean soup in a big pressure cooker. We were fairly poor and this was an inexpensive meal for us. We couldn't get enough of it until about the fifth day of eating it. Sure do miss Mom.

    I make this kind of soup a lot, but it takes hours in a stock pot. Looks very tasty.

    Gary-Genes bean soup looked so good I thought I'd try making some in our little GSI Pressure cooker.
    Since most recipes I've found are based around larger sized Pressure Cookers, (like Gary-Genes 2 gallon pot ... )
    I needed to scale down the recipe I used, to fit in the 4 qt cooker, so I only used one cup of navy beans, and then just added what I thought looked good of the other ingredients.

    1 cup navy beans (soaked over night)
    1/2 med. onion - chopped
    1/2 clove garlic - chopped
    1 stalk celery - cut up
    1 carrot - cut up
    1/2 cup cubed cooked smoked ham
    1 tsp. sea salt
    1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp olive oil
    4 cups canned low salt chicken broth.
    I'll be cooking the soup for 35 minutes after it comes up to pressure.

    (Don't know how turned out yet ... it's still cooking ... )

    Here are a couple of pix before it was cooked.

    I've done so much with so little for so long ... Now I can do nearly anything with almost nothing.

    Please let me know how this turns out. I love beans and this is sized well for my 4Q also.

    Guess I will need to break out that cook book that came with the 4 qt PC I bought and post for those not needing large helpings.

    It was done to perfection ...
    I had two bowls of it for lunch, and I wouldn't change thing ...

    But keep in mind the GSI pressure cooker releases steam at 11 pounds pressure, instead of 15 pounds pressure found on most kitchen pressure cookers ...
    That being said, if I were cooking this at 15 # pressure, I'd cut back the time to 30 minutes ...
