From scratch hamburger helper in the pressure cooker

Like some of you I am addicted to Pinterest. Now that I have a pressure cooker I have been searching Pinterest for different quick meals. I came across a homemade hamburger helper recipe. Thought I would give it a shot!

Ingredients are:

1 Pound of ground beef

2 cups of broth

16 oz of cheddar cheese

4oz of American cheese

1 tbs of onion powder

1 tbs of garlic powder

16 oz of elbow macaroni

8 oz of milk

First up is to sautée the ground beef along with the garlic and onion in the pressure cooker until the hamburger isn’t pink anymore. Pour in the broth, the elbow macaroni and milk. Hit the rice/risotto button and let it come up to pressure…recipe says 4 minutes my pot says 6 left it at 6 and the results are….pasta is


Perfect! Add the cheese and serve.  I made some green beens to go with it!

And dinner is served! Could I have made this in the stove? Yes but I must say I only have one pot to wash! I also didn’t have to babysit the meal!

We will make this again!

Turkey in the pressure cooker

Bought a turkey breast for the pressure cooker!

I took the turkey out of the plastic back and washed her off and then but some olive oil and rosemary salt all over her. Threw her in the cooker to brown her a little.


Then I chopped up some carrots, celery and onion for the bottom of the pot. Took turkey out. Turned it off to let it cool down. Put the carrots and stuff in the bottom of the pot with 2 cup dish of broth.


Sprinkles some dried onion and garlic in there.

Turned it on for 30 min. Let it come to pressure and cook. Released the steam took it out and cut the netting off. Cut threw the turkey…..not done so back in the pot.

Cooked for 10 more minutes. Took it out and…


Perfect!

Gotta love….

Today was another adventure with Christmas dinner and I got to make the fruit plate with the help of the neighbor. Grapes, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, blue berries, and banana.
