Today’s electric pressure cookers are a wonderful addition to the homesteader’s kitchen. They take meat from the refrigerator to tender, juicy and table-ready in as little as 25 minutes — without even heating up the kitchen. In addition, rice, beans, potatoes and pasta are perfectly done every time without requiring the cook to stand at the stove and stir.
Simply place the ingredients in the pressure cooker, set the timer, and come back soon to a finished product.
