Delicious Pressure Cooker Beef Barbacoa

Love been barbacoa but hate how long it takes to make?  What if I told you that you could make DELICIOUS beef barbacoa in a fraction of the time when you use a pressure cooker!  This is true one-pot cooking at it’s finest!

Oh barbacoa how I love you… almost as much as I love pressure cooking in general. Ever since I had the mother of all nachos I became a HUGE barbacoa lover. Sure I’ve had it at that fast food chain quasi-mexican place (is it even considered Mexican?) but it was just ‘meh’. But when I had it at that one Tex Mex place I was in love. I shared my Chicken Barbacoa pressure cooker recipe and you guys went nuts over it. I’m not sure which you loved more – the flavors or the fact that it only took 10 minutes. LOL  But you loved it and that’s what matters to me.

Now this recipe takes more than 10 minutes as beef always takes longer in the pressure cooker than chicken. But trust me, it’s well worth it and so friggen good!   I’m actually making up a huge pot of it and putting it all in the freezer. I want to make sure both Mr. Fantabulous and I have food to eat while I’m out having surgery.  But who knows maybe he’ll surprise me and actually make a pot on his own. *wink*

Seriously you need to make this recipe!

Only 30 minutes is all you need to take your backyard bbq appetizers to a whole new level!  These Peach BBQ Pork Bite Crostinis will be the biggest hit of every cookout this summer!  It’s time to get your deliciousness on! as

Oh, warmer sunny days how I love you. It’s funny how a simple thing like a sunny day can bring a smile to your face and put you in a better mood. The sound of neighborhood kids riding their bikes up and down the streets. The smell of cookouts filling the air. Ah yes, warmer days = toes in the grass, backyard get-togethers, and cookouts. One thing most people don’t think about when it comes to cookouts is appetizers. I mean we serve appetizers during indoor meals or when we go out to eat so why shouldn’t we have them for our backyard cookouts? Granted they don’t necessarily need to be as elaborate as say a Christmas dinner but they still should be there. And please, please, please – while potato chips rock they are NOT an appetizer. lol

This recipe today is for one of my favorite cookout appetizers. Again it looks uber hard and fancy schmancy but please, all you need is 30 minutes and you have a recipe that will be the hit of every cookout. Forget Uncle Tommy’s prized ribs or Jonny’s epic burgers. Pfft!  These Peach BBQ Pork Bite Crostinis steal the show. I’m teaming up with Smithfield® and showcasing their Smithfield Marinated Sweet & Smoky Pork Roast. What I absolutely LOVE about these items is that it’s 100% pork. Period. Pure piggy!  And you all know how much I love pigs. But what’s honestly some of the best points about this is it’s practical. The Fresh pork is marinated! Smithfield® takes care of folks offering a variety of marinated fresh pork options to create easy meals for any night of the week. Simply put you can create “Real Flavor Real Fast.”

Let’s create deliciousness in 30 minutes!

Pressure Cooker Guinness Corned Beef with Cabbage, Potatoes & Carrots

All of the amazing flavors as my infamous crock pot Guinness corned beef done in just 93 minutes all thanks to the wonders of the pressure cooker!  Hands down the BEST Corned Beef  with Cabbage, Potatoes and Carrots recipe ever!

My Guinness Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe is one of the most iconic corned beef recipes on the web. Since posting it 4 years ago it’s been liked/tweeted/pinned/shared millions upon millions of times. Simply put, it’s amazing and it’s easy.  No browning, no nothing – just dump it in and walk away.  The only part where you actually had to do work on that is if you wanted to make the Guinness Reduction sauce. For this pressure cooker recipe I didn’t make the sauce only because I was exhausted from working on the flooring with Mr. Fantabulous.  But what I did do was save the liquid and put it in the fridge. I’m actually going to make another corned beef and use that liquid (once I reduce it) as almost a Guinness bbq sauce and make pulled Guinness corned beef.

Genius, huh? LOL

93 minutes to serious deliciousness!

Pressure Cooker Mexican Stuffed Peppers

No longer do you have to slave over a hot oven for hours to get seriously delicious stuffed peppers!  All you need is a pressure cooker and 10 minutes!  These Pressure Cooker Mexican Stuffed Peppers are easy, heart healthy and delicious!

Growing up stuffed peppers were a staple in my house.  Since we had a huge garden Mom would grow rows upon rows of peppers – green ones, never the good kind like red, orange or yellow. (I hate green ones). It’s a personal thing – to me they taste more bitter or it could simply just be my inner 7-year old acting up because I hated them then so I must hate them now.  Anyway, we’d pick our peppers (and now I’m literally citing ‘peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers’ over and over in my head.. nice – and you’re welcome for it being stuck in your head now too). Yeah.. as I was saying, we’d pick the peppers and Mom would set at the kitchen table with 3-4 large roasters set up ready to do their magic.  She would stuff pepper after pepper after pepper.  There was one point she had so many we couldn’t give them away! Now where Mom’s Stuffed Peppers and mine differ is I love adding tomatoes into mine. They add such a rich flavor to filling plus seriously, all those healthy benefits are a huge bonus for me!  Tomatoes fit into my lifestyle perfectly – I want deliciousness and healthy!

Tomatoes are heart healthy. Tomatoes are low in calories, high in fiber, and have many nutrients that are good for your overall health, including: lycopene, folate, potassium and vitamins A, B, C, and E. So what’s that all mean? Lycopene is a natural occurring chemical that gives the tomatoes their red color. It’s a powerful antioxidant that, studies have shown, can help prevent cells from being damage. Additionally it’s been shown that it can help lower cholesterol.

Grab your pressure cookers and let’s get cooking!

Pressure Cooker BBQ Jelly Drumsticks

These 15 minute BBQ Jelly drumsticks are a super easy and super delicious thanks to the pressure cooker!  You get all the great flavors of bbq’d chicken without ever having to fire up the grill. 

So please tell me you’ve joined the Pressure Cooking revolution by now. Perhaps Santa Amazon brought you one for the holidays or your birthday. I’ve been pressure cooking now for the past few years and honestly it’s changed my life and how I cook dinners.  Let’s face it, we’re busier now than ever.  We work, some times more than one job,  if you have kids they have a million and one activities.  We have the gym, school, late meetings, RIDICULOUS traffic and it just seems like more responsibilities. Free time is often a luxury rather than a given. At least that’s how my life is. Perhaps that’s why I gravitate so much towards using the pressure cooker.  It’s extremely efficient and instead of spending an hour or so on dinner I can have it all done in a quarter of the time which means that’s 45 free minutes I gained.  Plus the benefits of the flavor infusion that the pressure cooker imparts on the food – I’ve never had more tender, more flavorful foods.

Now when I post these recipes I’ll get one of 3 responses:

  1. Oh awesome! I love pressure cooking!
  2. I have a pressure cooker but am too afraid to use it.
  3. I am afraid to buy one because I’m not sure if they are safe.

Okay so let me debunk these items – well not number one as we LOVE to read the #1 responses!  Go Team Pressure Cooker!

Numbers 2 and 3 – I’m going to lump them into one response as the reason why most people are afraid to use it or are afraid to buy one is because they are unsure about how incredibly safe they are nowadays.
Join team Pressure Cooker and make free time for yourself by cooking dinner in one tonight!
