How To Cook Meat in a Pressure Cooker. A pressure cooker provides one of the easiest and energy efficient ways to cook meats. This tutorial take away the mystery.
Use this chart as a basic guideline to pressure cooking meats. Amounts of liquid and cook time will vary according to the amount of meat you use as well as the altitude you are cooking at. Please follow all safety guidelines when pressure cooking your meat. Do not fill your cooker over 2/3 full (there is usually a 2/3 fill line inside your cooker) and use the "quick release" method for bringing the pressure down.
