High Altitude Pressure Cooker Recipes and Tips

CLICK for High Altitude Recipes and Tips


For around 6 to 7,000 feet, you should add at least 20% cooking time. Actually, slightly over 20% works best. Here are some cooking times and recipes I've come up with.

I have an electric 7 in1 Farberware 8 quart pressure cooker. All my instructions will be for that, you'll have to figure out your equivalent menu setting on your brand.

Recipes below for:
Mashed Potatoes
Center Back Beef Ribs
Corned Beef and Cabbage

Mashed Potatoes
You don't have to peel the potatoes, just scrub with brush, rinse occasionally to clean. I usually do peel mine first, they cool too much while I'm getting the skins off. Put in SALTED FILTERED water in pressure cooker if you have hard water. Have the filtered water at least half way up the potatoes. I'm saying use filtered water because most water in high altitude areas I've lived in had very hard water. Takes things forever to cook in hard water.

Set pressure cooker to 07 Vegetable Steam and set TIME COOK to 20 minutes. So far, every time I've done this, potatoes are falling apart! I scoop them out one at a time in a bowl. If you didn't peel them, hold them still with a fork and use a knife, table or sharp, doesn't matter to just scrape the skin off. If you are fine with the skins, then just leave them on.

I put mine in my KitchenAid Artisan Mixer with the regular beater, add butter, a little milk, salt  and pepper and beat. I add the milk after I get the butter melted so that I don't make the potatoes runny.
