I had beans for dinner too! Just grocery store black beans over rice, though; nothing special. I do think the pressure cooker does something to the beans to make them a little creamier than other methods, but not so much that I'd try to talk someone into buying one.


Just had an amazing bean soup for dinner: (used Instapot however, so adapt as needed)

Saute the onions and garlic first (in the instant pot), put in the dried beans and other ingredients, then set the pressure cooker for 90 minutes.

1 onion, diced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder

20 oz dried beans (pinto, black beans, 15-bean mix, etc)
8 cups water
Ham hock

pressure cook for 90 minutes, let pressure release naturally

2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can diced tomatoes
1/4 cup lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook on saute setting for 5 minutes

It was delicious; perhaps even better as a leftover.
