I made mine a little differently... I browned sausage, with the brown function, in the pressure cooker. Once cooked, I added water, tomatillos, jalapeños (roughly chopped), and garlic. Once softened, I used an immersion blender to puree everything, added cilantro, seasonings, juice of 1/2 lime, then rice, and used the pressure cooker to finish. Once done, I fluffed and blended it, replaced the lid, and let it sit while finishing dinner. perfect! And took 10 minutes total!!! :) Served with black beans, fresh tomatoes, fresh jalapeño, avocado, salsa, sour cream, and lettuce cups :)
