Pressure Cooker Sausage and Vegetables, a Weeknight Meal
The electric pressure cooker…a fabulous invention! I love mine! It is so much easier and safer to use than my mother’s! This is a perfect example of how an electric pressure can make life easier! Pressure Cooker Sausage and Vegetables, dinner in less than 30 minutes! A great weeknight meal!
This is one of my go-to dinners when I fail to plan ahead. I almost always have the ingredients on hand. It is hearty and tasty. If there are leftovers, they reheat well also.
As written, this recipe will feed four. It is easily increased to feed more, just don’t over fill your pressure cooker.
Why I created Pressure Cooker Sausage and Vegetables
My mother-in-law serves a similar meal to my pressure cooker sausage and vegetables. She wraps all of her ingredients in foil and bakes it in the oven which takes about an hour for the corn and potatoes to cook through. This is a great method, I’ve cooked it this way.
I don’t always want to heat up the house with the oven, however. When I made this the other day it was 106 degrees outside, not a day to use the oven!
This way is faster, too! I like when meals come together fast and I have options.
What you Need
For this, you need an electric pressure cooker. I was reluctant when they were initially all the rage. My sister has one and after listening to her praise hers, I got one. Fabulous! It is a great investment.
I have the Farberware 7-in-1 (6 quart) and it is perfect for the two of us. There are all brands and models on the market, some are pretty fancy. Don’t overwhelm yourself if you are just purchasing. Try a simple one at first and see how you like it, I bet you love it! You can shop a variety of pressure cookers here.
5 Ingredients is all you need:
- Smoked Sausage
- Corn on the Cob
- Brussel Sprouts
- Montreal Steak Seasoning
Dump it all in! Put your corn in first, then potatoes, sausage, and brussel sprouts. Sprinkle the Montreal Seasoning over it all, add 1 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of cubed butter. Seal and set for 12 minutes. Quick release and serve!
Dinner doesn’t get much easier than this.
The picture shows sausage links, this was the first time I tried them. We didn’t like them in this particular meal. Usually I use the longer sausages and they work really well.
If you don’t like brussel sprouts, leave them out. You could add carrots or just about any other frozen vegetable you like. Do not used canned vegetables because they are already cooked and will turn to mush.
Cajun seasoning is also good on the sausage and vegetables.
I use whatever potatoes I have on hand. In the picture I am using baby new potatoes. You can use regular size new potatoes, golden potatoes, or russets. Be sure to cut the large types of potatoes into about 1 inch slices or they won’t cook fully.
