For years, I encountered stories from people who had picked up pressure cookers cheap from thrift stores. Well, after years of occasional looking, I've now joined the club. Two Mirro cookers, one 4qt from the 1990's, one 6qt from the 1980's. Eight bucks each at Goodwill. I googled up an old archived owner's manual, and last night I managed to successfully cook carrots in 10 minutes without blowing anything up.

My next experiment will either involve food storage beans, or maybe flank steak if I can work up my courage. I am not an innovative cook, nor even a good one, but I can follow directions.

Anyone have any good pressure cooker recipes?
