Perfect Risotto for Wolfgang Puck Pressure Cooker

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

If anyone has the Wolfgang Puck pressure cooker from HSN, you know the recipes that came with it are pretty sparse. Here's one I devised for risotto that turned out beyond perfect. Give it a try! Technique is based on green risotto recipe in the instruction book.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in cooker using the vegetable function. Add onion and saute until tender and translucent.
  2. Add rice and stock. Lock lid in place.
  3. Select rice function and set timer for 15 minutes.
  4. When cycle is done and all pressure has been released, open lid.
  5. Stir in black pepper to taste and 1 - 3 tbs romano or parmesan cheese, also to taste. Serve immediately.

To be fair I gave this recipe 4-stars as I don't have a WP pressure cooker, I have a Cuisinart. Found this recipe a bit gummy and not so creamy also a bit bland even after adding lots of parmesan cheese. I will need to try another recipe to compare the risotto consistancy that my pressure cooker makes. Glad others enjoyed your recipe, I was hoping too.

I made this in my WP 5 quart PC and it came out wonderful. I will definately make this again - very easy and super fast.

I don't have a Puck cooker, but this worked fine in my Fagor. Easy and tasty, and a whole lot less work than the regular method! We don't have risotto often because of the time it takes. Now we can have it quick! Made for Spring 2008 PAC.
