    I've just got my pressure cooker and I wanted to try this recipe to 'christen it'. I don't understand why there's no liquid included. Isn't that dangerous?  -  06 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Yes it is dangerous! I think looking at the timings that you need at least 1/2 pint ( 300 mls ) of stock or water. Then maybe a top up for the 20min cook, say 1/4 of a pint ( 150 mls ) You will have to use your judgement for this one. There might be enough liquid. It would have been helpful if the cook had said how much he used.  -  16 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    This recipe NEEDS liquid - it's not mentioned in the recipe and not shown in the video but I have a badly burned pan full of meat and prunes to prove that this recipe does not work as presented.  -  02 Nov 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
