Black-eyed Peas (Pressure Cooker)
I used my 9 liter (9 1/2 quart) stove top pressure cooker with 12 psi (80 kPa) pressure for these, basically the same pressure as an electric pressure cooker. Follow all safety precautions for your model of pressure cooker.
How to Make Black-eyed Peas (Pressure Cooker)
- Place the lid on the pressure cooker, add the weight (jiggler). Turn the heat up to high. When the weight starts to move and release pressure, turn the heat to low or medium in order to maintain the jiggler moving and venting pressure (indicating you have full pressure.) Set your timer for 5 minutes.
- When 5 minutes have passed, turn off the heat, and carefully move the pressure cooker to an unused burner and allow a natural release of pressure, basically, just let the pot sit there until you have indication of zero pressure, 15-20 minutes.
- When the indication is zero pressure, pull off the weight (jiggler), then remove the lid. Drain the beans and use in any recipe calling for cooked beans. Or serve as is as a side dish. These beans are very tender. This bean broth is NOT recommended to save and use, I have tasted this broth, not what I would say is usable.
