Default I'll put whatever you tell me to in a pressure cooker

So, here's the deal: this weekend is grocery day. You guys have until that long to decide what I'm going to buy to put into my shiny new pressure cooker that I know how to use. I'll pressure cook a meal according to a democratic process.

My life is in your hands, dudes. Don't blow it.

Dammit.

I thought the rest of the thread title was "in my mouth."

Madhair? Can you do this, champ? Make that thread and put whatever food we decide on in your mouth for consumption?

Please note the following rules apply:
  1. Food only.
  2. If there's a risk that it will damage my pressure cooker, my kitchen, or my person, it is not allowed.

I don't have much experience with pressure cookers (they don't cover 'em much in culinary school, y'know), but I am told meatballs made in one come out pretty good.

That's... all the input I have.

I represent three people sitting on a couch when I veto watermelon, beet and marshmallow.

Let's make dinner great again.

You got a problem with beets? Marshmallow, too, could probably be arranged into some sort of cake-like dessert. However, I'll require a recipe.

Please suggest good food, however.

Jumbo shrimp, scallops, clams, chopped green onions, a few tomatoes on the vine, and your choice of olive oil with a mix of salt and pepper on top.

Pressure Cooker? Shoulda got a slow cooker instead... That's where the cooking hotness is at.

I've never owned a pressure cooker and I don't really know what are the selling points; I guess they're used restaurants where you need to get stuff cooked quickly? How about buying some cheap cuts of beef and just boiling the hell out of them to make some kind of stew?

This lends itself very well to pressure cookers, as does this. They are both among my favourites and extremely tasty and nutritious. There are other things too; generally, meat tends to lend itself well if you want to eat it that way. It's a good way to cook meat quickly and thoroughly, especially when you want them for stews. Stuff that tends to be difficult to cook properly like chickpeas and certain beans are also good candidates.

Two things typically get cooked in our house using a pressure cooker (by my mum or aunts, as pressure cookers make me nervous):

Stew
Chicken soup

So, one of those I guess?

Pressure cookers boil at a higher temperature and as a result cook food faster. There is also less loss of moisture, so you have more exact control over the chemistry if desired. In that sense it's the opposite of a slow cooker, which I also use occasionally.

I've heard beans taste GREAT when cooked in the pressure cooker.

i learned cooking from my mom, so i've almost never made beans without a pressure cooker. definitely being able to make them in like an hour instead of several is a huge perk on its own. texture-wise, they come out different as a rule, though larger beans less so. split peas and lentils especially just get annihilated and turn into a kind of puree

i don't really know much else about pressure cooking other stuff. my mom has never been able to make rice not come out a bit soggy, which is sometimes good i guess but not usually.

artichokes are good.

Whatever you end up pressure cooking, be sure to make this the soundtrack:
