Slow cooker meals are some of my favorites. For one thing, the whole set-it-and-forget-it part really speaks to me. I’m especially good at the forgetting part. I love that dinner time rolls around and suddenly it’s “oh hey we should eat something. Hey look at that, dinner is ready!”.

This recipe has been a favorite for my kids since I found it and now I Dont have my slow cooker but I have an electric pressure cooker and I’m wondering how to adapt THis recipe for the PRessure cooker so I can throw it together after school instead of in the morning and still have the same result. New to pressure cooking in general so I dont know how to adapt my favorite recipes yet. Just looking to bring back my kids favorite dinner! Thanks for the Recipe!

    I Dont mean for the random capitalization but The comment box types out in all caps then the output just picks and chooses what to make uppercase. Sorry!

    Hey Brittany, I haven’t tried this recipe in a pressure cooker yet. I wish I had more info for you on that! I’d love to hear what you try or next time I give this recipe a shot in the pressure cooker, I’ll let you know!
