It uses a pressure cooker, which I know seems a little scary. I was pretty skeptical when I first tried out my pressure cooker recipe, and now my pressure cooker is my BFF! You can essentially get the same results of slow cooking something for hours with only 20 minutes or so in a pressure cooker. I do this for roasts and stews, as well as any kind of beans I make. Also -- typically pressure cookers come with a big price tag -- so check out a local thrift store before making the plunge. I got mine for about $7 at the Kiwanis club in Ann Arbor.
And now -- to the deliciousness.
