HELP! with ELITE 4 QT PRESSURE COOKER
Again today I attempted to use my new ELITE PC. I’ve read the instruction booklet but Lord help me I just can;t figure this thing out.
The booklet has a listing of TIMES to cook vegetables…..and there’s a list from A to Z….but basically all veggies cook in about 2-5 minutes.
I borrowed Bob Warden’s cookbook from a friend and there was a recipe for fresh kale with mushrooms and garlic. Wow this would be a great side dish for tonight’s main course, Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken, that I already had going in my old slow cooker.
So back to my new ELITE to make my kale side dish………….in went the olive oil, I added mushrooms, BROWNED them in the ELITE PC and when mushrooms were browned added the kale, put cover on, closed and set the valve.
Why isn’t there a MENU button for vegetables????? So I figured I’d use the STEW/SOUP MENU BUTTON, then I tried pressing the PC TIME BUTTON and the time increased……….Both the ELITE instructions and Bob’s said 2 minutes……… I couldn’t find a way to decrease the time!!! I ended up just letting the PC think I was making STEW/SOUP and about 4 minutes into it I canceled the program, let it release the pressure, and sure enough the kale was cooked (and delicious).
So now I’ve used this ELITE twice and both times I held my breath. (tried making rice, 12 minutes and it wasn’t cooked) Can anyone give me help? I really want to figure this out. Thanks so much, Gerri S
