Add carrots, celery, bay leafs, and soup mixes. Pour water, enough to completely cover the meat
After the hour is up, turn heat off and have pressure cooker release pressure naturally. Don't use quick release!!!!

For all of you that heard horror stories about pressure cookers, I'm so sorry! Let me just say . the pressure cooker doesn't have a brain or mind to think or act on its own... It's what you do OR don't do will determine the success or failure in cooking with a pressure cooker;
To the point, only YOU have the control over the pressure cooker. The convenience, ease, and (yes!) safety of the modern pressure cooker will put your dinner on the table fast—and make it tastier, as if you spent the whole day at the stove.
Here are some safe guidelines to help ease your minds:
The gasket is the ring of rubber that lines the lid of the pressure cooker. If the gasket looks cracked or broken, replace it immediately. You might need to order the gasket online if you can't find it locally. Use parts that come from the pressure cooker’s manufacturer to ensure the proper seal
This is critical to increase the cooker’s pressure. Follow a recipe to make sure the amount of liquid is correct.
Careful measuring is a must. Some foods, such as beans, expand when they cook, and you need to allow room for this.
Frothy foods can block the steam valves and the pressure-release vents on your pressure cooker. Foods that froth include pasta, rhubarb, split peas, oatmeal, applesauce and cranberries. When cooking these foods, follow a trusted recipe and make sure the quantity in the pot is well below the recommended maximum-fill line.
Typically, removing the pressure cooker from the stove and letting it cool until the pressure drops to the safe range release the pressure. The cold-water release is another way to release pressure by running cold water over the lid of the cooker. Each pressure cooker operates differently, so consult your instruction manual.
Pressure cooking saves you time cooking and heating up your home which is great during summer!!!
Happy cooking, Cyann :)
