Here's a Quick List of the Best Pressure Cooker Recipes at Plate Up

Pressure cookers are pots with a tight-fitting lid and a valve to let out steam. They use pressure from steam to cook food quickly at a temperature that is hotter than boiling water.

A pressure cooker can reduce cooking time by up to 70% and since it cooks the food under high pressure, it also seals in natural juices and flavor. This makes your food more nutritious and flavorful. As an added bonus, you'll save on energy because you're not boiling away all the liquid as it cooks.

Pressure cookers are a great way to save time and money on food. They’ve been around for a while, but they’re making a comeback. The pressure cooker is an easy-to-use pot that cooks food quickly and without added fat or oil. With just some simple steps, you can prepare flavorful and nutritious meals in as little as 30 minutes. 

It can be confusing to have a recipe that is not fit for cooking with a pressure cooker. That is why we made a list of the recipes here at Plate Up which specifically require a pressure cooker. This means that you don’t have to waste time worrying about conversions since it’s directly catered for you so that you can enjoy cooking and eating!
