Dried Beans Unknown source

One thing I never knew was that you can cook dry beans in the pressure cooker. Not even soaked first. My instructions say 4 c. water for 1 c. beans and don't fill more than 1/2 full, whereas you can fill other things 2/3. I tried this with Pintos, cooked them 30 minutes on the lower pressure, but it was not long enough. About 40 minutes more did the trick and they were great! This is a Godsend to me, as we love beans, but I always forget to soak them or don't get them in the Crockpot early enough.

You can do anything with liquid in the pressure cooker. I use my Crockpot recipes and usually cook them 30-40 minutes for beef and pork, 20 minutes for chicken.
