My wife bought me a pressure cooker, like 3 years ago, and I finally got the nerve to try. MAN,,, what a poorly worded manual. Anyway I took a frozen set of potbellied pig forelegs, a can of beer, 6 large fresh purple basil leaves, 5 dried bay leaves, some salt, and fresh ground pepper and watched the pressure get to 15 pounds....and am trying to figure how long to cook, since I started from frozen, for this stew. I've seen them do that on Iron chef, but not in any books. I figure you really cant overcook pork, so I'm planning on 35 minutes for like 4 pounds. I'll post later about the results.
