Pressure Cooker Ranch Style Beans

Recipe by good2bdunn

I've been experimenting with my electric pressure cooker and decided to try my hand at beans. I chose a recipe on the Homesick Texan blog but needed to improvise on some of the ingredients. After throwing everything into the pot, I suddenly realized I'd doubled everything but the beans and water! What I ended up with was a pot of pure YUM! This is a very soupy bean recipe so serve it in a bowl and not on a plate! I served mine over rice! This is a healthy, low cost and delicious way to feed your family.

This is a good recipe. However, users should be aware that it is too big for a standard 4 quart pressure cooker. For ingredients that expand in cooking (beans and rice) the pot should not be more than half full.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. This is every homemakers dream recipe. Dump everything into the pressure cooker and give it a good stir to mix it up.
  2. Pressure cook on high for 30 minutes.
  3. Release the pressure, give it a good stir and taste to see if needs more salt.
  4. Pressure cook for an addition 20 minutes on high and it should be done.
  5. Very soupy -- so eat it as soup if you like.
  6. I served mine over rice with a dollop of sour cream stirred in for a delicious added creaminess.
