Hello friends, today I want to share with you a new recipe for the power pressure cooker. I’m going to assume you have one of these amazing cookers for yourself since you have found me here but if not, believe me, you need one! Seriously if you’re a busy momma who hates spending an hour on dinner every night this baby is for you.
How had I went so long without knowing about pressure cookers?
About 9 months ago a friend of mine started posting on her Facebook about this instant pot she had? Umm, what’s that? I had never even heard of such a thing. So one night after posting about how she made an entire dinner for her family in 15 minutes I knew i needed to learn more about them. After a little google research I was more than sold. It just seemed like a magical tool I had to have! I went and purchased one that very next day.
Now I’ll admit I was intimidated at first and got out of the box and didn’t use for probably a month after. One night I decided to get it out of the box and give it a try. The first thing I made was pressure cooker BBQ pulled pork RECIPE HERE
BEST BBQ EVER
Baby, I was sold. That was the best BBQ pulled pork I’d ever made! It had this amazing flavor you can’t get in the crockpot or oven. Ever since then I have been trying out new recipes and have yet to find one that’s not just delicious. I use my pressure cooker at least 3 nights every week now and feel like it’s my duty to make sure all mommas and busy ladies know just how amazing this cooker is.
Now keep in mind cooking is not my strong my suit. Really it’s just not my favorite thing but I do have 5 kids and a husband that have to be feed. Cereal each night isn’t very healthy.
Don’t get me wrong I still love, my crockpot also but no matter how hard I try to meal plan I can’t seem to consistently have it all together by dinner time most nights. Ugh, I wish I could but I just don’t so this power pressure cooker is amazing because I can literally throw together a meal at 5:00 pm and have our whole dinner done in 10-20 minutes which is much quicker than running through the drive through somewhere so this just works for best for our family.
Ok, enough rambling here is this amazing recipe.
Pressure Cooker Potato Soup
I had always made this on the stovetop and really just winged it in the pressure cooker (last night for dinner to be exact) and I am happy to say it turned out amazing!
First, you will need to peel and dice up 5 pounds of russet potatoes
Chop up 3-4 stalks of celery
Shred 3-4 carrots
Now add your potatoes, celery, and carrots to your power pressure cooker pot and add 6 cups of chicken broth.
Set to cook on high pressure for 10 minutes
Once done cooking do a quick release until steam stops coming out. Usually just a few minutes some say to wait 10 minutes but I never have and it turns out just fine 🙂
Now, you want to add in your heavy whipping cream, butter, minced onion, and shredded cheddar cheese and mix together well.
I was a little worried about adding in these ingredients last and felt like it wouldn’t thicken up right but it was a perfect consistency. Once I mixed it all together I let it sit for about 5 minutes on warm and then served. ou just can not beat potatoes soup in only 10 minutes!
You just can not beat potato soup in only 10 minutes!
