I resisted getting a pressure cooker for a long time. To me it was the thing my grandma used to do canning and my mother-in-law used to make delicious boliche en salsa (the Puerto Rican version of pot roast).
But over the last couple of years, pressure cookers have gotten crazy popular! Everywhere I look I see Facebook friends talking about what they made in their pressure cooker and I find lots of easy pressure cooker recipes and Instant Pot recipes online and in magazines.
SO, I figured it was about time I give it a try and guess what – I like it. I have been looking for yummy Power Pressure Cooker XL recipes and what I like best so far is this yummy and easy honey sesame chicken pressure cooker recipe.
This particular recipe can be made in basically ANY pressure cooker including the Instant Pot, Power Pressure Cooker XL, or whatever type of pressure cooker you choose to use.
I owe a thanks to Tristar Products for sending me their Power Pressure Cooker XL and encouraging me to finally try a pressure cooker!
The Power Pressure Cooker XL is GREAT choice because it saves time, energy, & money and cooks even the most inexpensive cuts of meat to juicy perfection.
It has a removable inner pot that is dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. I have the 10 quart version that is so big it can even cook a turkey!
