Wait for a minute and set your stovetop heat to medium heat, then cook your short ribs for about 30 minutes. Please, note that you need to pay close attention to the heat and adjust the heat when necessary so as to maintain a steady amount of steam.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. How do I open my Pressure Cooker after use?

This is something most people are afraid of, and rightly so; this can be quite dangerous if proper care is not taken. This is due to the huge amount of pressure in the cooker which needs to be released before it becomes safe to open. So how do you do it? Open the valve slowly and let the steam come out gently. Do this for a few minutes and with time, your pressure cooker will be safe to open after all pressure must have been released from the pan.

2. How does Pressure Cooker work?

A pressure cooker features a lid which when installed correctly helps lock air in the pan so that it doesn’t evaporate. This way, the pressure is built up and in turn, causes a temperature rise. This helps food cook faster than a regular pan and on top of that, all nutrients are locked in too.

3. Can I cook rice in my Pressure Cooker?

Many people fear that a pressure cooker might not cook rice properly but that is not the case. The reason why most people do not often cook rice in their pressure cooker is that rice produces foamy substance when it’s being cooked and since everything is going to be trapped inside the pot till cooking is done, it’s not considered safe.
