Red Beans and Sausage Recipe: Made in a pressure cooker/ Can be made stove top or crock pot

My mom and I love gadgets: Kitchen gadgets of all kinds. She is always buying them from QVC (she is a compelte QVC junkie) Her recent purchase was a pressure cooker. But the problem is, she got it and didn’t know what to do with it. She had no idea what to make in it. So she sent it to me, to figure it out, find some recipes and teach her how to use it.¬†I search online for some great recipes and then decided to jump in a give it a try.

I decided to make a red beans and sausage. I love spicy sausage and I love red beans. I used a recipe from Allrecipes as a jumping off point. I changed a few things and this is what I came up with. It can easily be changed to a crock pot or stove top recipe by changing the cooking times.

Red Bean and Sausage Pressure Cooker Recipe

Ingredients:

1 pound of dried red beans, washed
2 lbs spicy sausage, use regular sausage if you like, cut into bite sized pieces
2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning. I made my own, recipe included
1/2 onion chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 green pepper
1 teaspoon dried parsley
salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
About 5 cups of water, Enough to cover ingredients.

Red Beans and Sausage recipe in a pressure cooker

After chopping all the veggies and sausage, add to the pressure cooker. Add in spices. Then add water. It needs to cover the ingredients, but do not go over the maximum level mark on your cooker. Most cookers need at least 1 cup of water or liquid in order to create to work properly.

Stir to combine the ingredients.

Seal the pressure lid and bring pot to full pressure over high heat. Then Reduce heat to low, maintaining full pressure, and cook for 30 minutes.

Allow pressure to drop naturally, called a slow release. Remove lid carefully. Stir again and serve.
