My husband and I received a new electric pressure cooker at our wedding. We’ve tried soups, stews, roasts, and so much more in it. Honestly, when he wanted to add it to the wedding registry I said “We will never use it”. I was WRONG! When I was younger my grandmother would always cook with her pressure cooker. She would read at the table while it cooked. Everything that came out of that pressure cooker was always delicious. The tender meat is my downfall. I am not sure how many of you have pressure cookers but I thought a few recipes here and there wouldn’t be a half bad idea. Today, I would like to share my Chicken Paprika Stew that features three different peppers, two different onions, and plenty of paprika.
This can easily be gluten free and paleo friendly. It can be served with pasta, rice, quinoa, and/or just by it’s self. We like to place it over rotini noodles and dab some sour cream on top.
Paprika is a go to spice in my home. If the boys smell it they don’t even look they hoover over me until it’s done. It’s funny how fond they are of it. It’s my plan to make Czech style meals each week since I’ve seen such a high interest in the cuisine here. I am curious what other cuisines from around the world would you like to see here? Let me know in the comments below.
Remember with a pressure cooker to always let the pressure release completely before adding anything into the pot. I was in a rush and lightly burned my chest from the hot liquid. The trick to this soup is slow mixing in the sour cream into the sauce. If you get chunks just strain them out with a spider strainer. (no folks this is not a real spider 😉 )
Be pressure safe! On to the recipe…
