Yummy! I've made this twice, both times in the pressure cooker. I didn't have time to do the foil packets & the pressure cooker worked out perfectly. I followed the recipie exactly the first time (except I omitted the cornstarch and added 1C of water needed to cook in the pressure cooker). The second time I added more bell pepper and it was just as fantastic. My husband & I loved it so much that I'll be making it often! It only takes about 40 minutes in the pressure cooker.

i gave this recipe to my mother because it sounded really good and she LOVED it ...she gives it 5 stars and wouldn't change a THING!

One of my all-time favorites. I gave up on the foil, though and just use a casserole dish. This way you can add potatoes and carrots directly (you may need to add a little water.)
