When I did the quick release I got a starchy spew with the steam that was released. Should I have let it rest a bit? Short answer: Yes, you should let it rest a bit! Longer answer: I get the “quick release is spraying more than steam” question from time to time.

Pressure Cooker Brown and Wild Rice Pilaf

This is the pilaf to make. Video: Pressure Cooker Brown and Wild Rice Pilaf (1:48) Video: Pressure Cooker Brown and Wild Rice Pilaf with Cranberries and Almonds [YouTube.com] What do you think?
