I am looking for a recipe that my mom made.
It is stuffed peppers in the pressure cooker.
I believe she got the recipe from the book that came with either Mirro
or Presto pressure cooker. She bought me one in the early 1980ís and
it had the recipe.
But mine has been lost for years I used to know how to make it without
the recipe but between getting older and chemo brain I just canít remember
I know the recipe used tomato juice ground meat and rice. Any help you
give me to locate this recipe is really appreciated.
I am finding some online copies of owners manuals for Mirro and Presto pressure cookers.
However, without knowing for sure which brand yours was and which model it was,
I cannot proceed.
More specific information is needed:
Can you recall of find out whether it was a Mirro or Presto pressure cooker?
Which model was it?
Are you sure that the recipe called for tomato juice and not for tomato soup?
Was the "ground meat" ground beef or was it pork sausage?
Let me know. Either way I will post this for reader input.
Below is a recipe for stuffed peppers from a Presto Pressure Cooker instruction booklet and a
recipe for stuffed peppers from a Mirro Pressure Cooker instruction booklet.
If you can't provide the information that I asked for, then I'm afraid this is the best that I can do.
I will post this.
