Pressure Cooker Jambalaya (With Peppers & Celery)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

I replaced my electronic pressure cooker so I'm on the hunt for a variety of good recipes for it. I found this one on a few different web sites but don't see it on Zaar. If you are using a regular stove top pressure cooker it should be fairly easy to adjust accordingly.

Excellent recipe and tasted great! I used my Cuisinart electric pressure cooker and it came out wonderfully. Only recommendation is to let the food sit for a little while or keep on warm so some of the wetness can dry out. Delicious!

This is a excelllent recipe. I used my stovetop Fagor Futuro 6QT and only had to add about 5 minutes to cooking time, mainly due to altitude. 5 stars here.

Even a true Louisianan thinks this recipe is outstanding! One of my dinner guests had to have a 3rd helping, because it was so good.<br/>My only complaint is it burns at the bottom and it's hell to clean the pot :(
