Pressure Cooker Chicken Legs with Herb Rub | DadCooksDinner.com

Throwback Thursday: Simple Chicken Legs

This is one of the simplest pressure cooker recipes I have. It’s more of a cooking technique than a recipe, but it’s exactly right for a busy weeknight. Need to get some quick chicken legs on the table? Memorize this technique, so you don’t even have to look at the recipe. (OK, OK, I can never remember exact pressure cooker timings, so I always have to look at the recipe to remind myself. “How long under pressure is that again? Twenty minutes? (checks phone), No, thirty. OK, good to go.)

Throwback Thursday: Borracho Beans

#3 from 2020 I’m taking a look back at my most popular recipes from 2020. #3 on the list is Borracho Beans. These are a classic of the Tex-Mex border, popular on both sides of the Rio Grande. It’s a simple pot of beans, but the key ingredient is beer – that’s what makes them “Drunk Beans”. Of course, I pressure cook them. Dried beans made my pressure cooker an essential piece of kitchen equipment, not just a gadget to be left on the shelf gathering dust.

Throwback Thursday: Mini Cheesecakes

I’m taking a look back at my most popular recipes from 2020. #2 on the list is Mini Cheesecakes. I’ve made Instant Pot cheesecakes for years. They’re my go-to dessert for parties or potlucks, easy to make ahead and bring with me. But what if I want a bunch of small, single serving cheesecakes? Turns out, my pressure cooker cheesecake technique is easy to miniaturize. And, they freeze well, if you want to make a batch and save some for later. My problem is they disappear faster than I can get them capped and into the freezer; I have yet to “save” any of them for more than a day before the horde…ahem…I mean my family devours them.
