Blue Jean Chef: "Comfortable Under Pressure" Cookbook
Best Pressure Cooker book I have found!!!!!!!
The Blue Jean Chef ROCKS!!!!!!! Great recipes in the book. So many that you can put a spin
On recipes that are in the book like changing the meat from beef to chicken, just use a recipe and the next time make it your own!!!!

Must Have For Pressure Cooking
Not only does it have great recipes but it has charts and tips for converting your own recipes... Plus more!! I'm finding it very helpful since I'm new at pressure cooking...
too many steps
just received this and tried swedish meatballs and was awful compared to recipe i have.took same amt of time even w/pressure cooker.i cant understand why pic on swedish meatballs showed white as if you use beef stock & sour cream how do you get a pic of swedish meatballs thats white.very liquidy w/this recipe & others as previous reviews said same..love my pressure cooker but not this book.been cooking for almost 60 yrs and other cookbooks i have are much better & easier w/less steps.
I have noticed a lot of your recipes call for browning in the pressure cooker -- I do not have the brown feature on my electric 5 qt. pressure cooker but it does have a removable pot. Can I brown the food in this removable pot on a glass electric cooktop stove and then put it in the pressure vessel to finish cooking the recipe??.
Excellent Cookbook for Electric Pressure Cooker
I have made several of the recipes from this Cookbook. They all came out excellent. Written well and easy to understand...Great illustrations too.
The Greatest PC Cookbook for me, Great Work Meredith!
Exciting and new to us
My husband and I purchased a pressure cooker and had tried recipes off the internet, but when he saw this cookbook on QVC he said "get it!". We just received it and there are so many wonderful choices to try. We both have busy schedules and are excited to make a quick easy dinner in our new pressure cooker that is tasty and not my grandma's old way of cooking for ours. Thanks so much for offering such great cookbooks!
I have not had this book that long and have already made 3 dishes from it. It is THE PERFECT pressure cooker cookbook for the everyday home cook. Flavorful meals you can make in a fraction of the time. Instructions everyone can follow. At last I can eat well throughout the week without a lot of fuss and special ingredients. LOVE this cookbook. Meredith, we need another one just like this.
My Favorite Cookbook by far!!
I have learned SO much about pressure cooking with the easy cooking time charts for both fresh or frozen meats, vegetables & seafood. My favorite are the recipe tips & I love " the look-at-a-glance" outline Meredith uses noting servings, prep level- easy, easier, cooking times and release method.... Super, super easy, no more guessing anymore for me! Planning my next meal for tomorrow night. My first meal was a smash, my guests loved it and once the pressure level was achieved; my Cider-Braised Chicken with Apples & Sweet Potatoes was done in 8 minutes flat! Did I say it was delicious too!! The best cookbook I have on my shelf!!
So Far So Good...
Made two recipes so far (rigatoni with sausage and chicken paprikash) and they were both delicious. Had to brown the sausage and sear the chicken first, but who cares? The end result was totally worth the minimal prep. Can't wait to try more recipes!
Easy and Delicious!
I have tried several of the recipes in this book. They've all been easy to follow and came out really well. I use a different brand of pressure cooker so the settings were a little different but that wasn't a problem. I made the beef stew with corn and peas today and it's my favorite so far!
BEST PRESSURE COOKER COOKBOOK!!!!!
Recipes are yummy, but absolutely BEST part of book is the cooking chart of each type of meats and vegetable sections. Tells u how much time for fresh and frozen. So u can just cook that type of meat or vegetable alone if u want. I use almost every day. Cooking frozen is life changer. LOVE THAT. My 22 yr old son just moved out and asked me to buy him this book. LADIES....that should tell u how fabulous this book is. Been to book stores and none of pressure cookbooks come close to this book. THANK YOU Merideth!!!!
Not the best.
Boring recipes. Most have to be adjusted if you aren't using the Cooks Essentials pressure cooker. I have another brand that I purchased here on QVC. If your pressure cooker doesn't have a lbrown" feature, you will be doing many more steps than you want based on these recipes. Not the worst cookbook but certainly not the best.
