This recipe is a total one pot meal, featuring meaty country ribs cabbage & potatoes that can be done in 30 minutes using a electric pressure cooker. Inspired by my German Heritage remembering mom’s great one pot meals that simmered for hours in a cast-iron pot. I used both stove top pressure cooker and electric pressure cooker testing this recipe, both types of pressure cookers make wonderful comfort food that is full of flavor.
The new electric pressure cooker takes less watching over then stove top pressure cooker, the stove top cooker need to be babysit all through the process. The beauty of the new electric pressure cooker is once the lid is locked into place, your free to do what other tasks needs to be accomplished until timer goes off. One thing I did learn is not to leave food in the pressure cooker after it is done for too long of time. What every you have in the pressure cooker continues to cook even with no pressure, and can become over cooked. The cabbage can become overly soft, potatoes can become mushy. So if you know your going to leave pressure cooker unattended for over hour, adjust cooking time down by 10 minutes. The food can stay hot for a good 2 hours after timer shuts off, but longer it’s left in the pressure cooker the more it continues to cook.
Just remember when using stove top pressure cooker one very important thing. Never leave a stove top pressure cooker unattended!
