*Brown meat first if desired in the pressure cooker. Place everything in your pressure cooker, lock the lid, set the valve to PRESSURE and set it for at least 50 minutes. Quick Release Method: after cooking press the START/STOP button to make sure the unit is completely turned off. Turn the pressure regulator to vent and allow the pressure to release. Caution! Keep hands and face away from the escaping steam as it is extremely hot and can cause injury. I use a washcloth to cover the release the vent when turning it to help from getting burned by the very hot steam.
